This is a nice update guys! Here's some of what's included:
-2 New Songs
-New Mouse Control
-Rain is off by default, you can turn it on if you would like.
-New logo
-Cleaned up code a bit, so it may run faster!
-Resetting game data now resets game settings
-Rain will actually disable when disabled (bug for some users)
-iPhone/iPad users can add the game to their homescreen for enhanced fullscreen gameplay

Note android users: Do not play on mobile chrome. It sucks at html5. Use the stock android browser, or anything else you find that works best for you!

Hello NG! Pixel Pirat3 is the result of a simple little idea in my head, and the desire to make a simple little game in HTML5 canvas. However, I challenged myself to make the game playable on almost any device. I personally have an iPad (3rd gen) and a Samsung Galaxy S III. It plays great on those. My friends have iPhones, and it plays great on those as well.

Now, onto gameplay! All you need to do is to control the red boat to avoid the cannonballs being fired from the orange boat. Every once in a while, the orange boat will fire special bonus balls (yeah, I'm so sick of "ball" jokes after making this) that either give your health back, or give you bonus points. All the scores are saved, so you can refresh/leave the page, and your scores will still be here. Play with a friend and see who can score higher!

The really cool thing about this game is that the orange boat fires the cannonballs in beat with the music. Now, you may be thinking "meh, I've seen it before", but you probably haven't seen it in a JavaScript HTML5 game that you can play on your phone via Newgrounds! It was pretty tricky to get it to work on all mobile devices. YOU HAVE NO IDEA HOW MUCH I HATE APPLE'S HTML5 RULES AFTER MAKING THIS GAME. For example, you cannot have any music start/activate/load/think /breathe WITHOUT the user activating a touch event by touching the screen. That means no random sound effects, or menu music. Period.

Anywho, I will be adding many more features to this game as the weeks go by, so leave me comments telling me what you want to see changed/added!

Have fun! (And remember, try it on your devices! Tell me how it runs!)

The song always cuts off 15 or so seconds in. I am using Chrome for Windows 7.

Sirtopeia responds:

Do you have a solid internet connection? The music is being streamed from newgrounds. The game shouldn't let you start unless enough of the music has loaded... do you know the specific version of chrome you are using?

Rated 2.5 / 5 stars

how do i play this game i'm clicking everything?

Sirtopeia responds:

Well, reading the screen would be nice :/
You use the arrow keys. Maybe It's my fault and I wasn't super clear in game...


Rated 4 / 5 stars

very nice stuff but it would REALLY make sense, to use a seizure-warning

Sirtopeia responds:

Really? I didn't think it was that flashy...


Rated 4 / 5 stars

Very challenging. Very fun to play.

The controls are easy. A simple gameplay. But very hard difficulty.

I liked how the pixels did the effect.

BUT, the game (graphics, music, gameplay) could've been better, with upgrades and stats, and increasing difficulty (not just a single difficulty!)

Anyway, good job!

Sirtopeia responds:

Oh, great ideas for the future!
