This is a nice update guys! Here's some of what's included:

-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!)

Wow, this game made me go completely cross-eyed after about 10 sec of game-play. If the background didn't look so much like the cannonballs I think it would be more user friendly, but I still enjoyed it.

It has a good AI and I think it has okay animations, but someday it might give someone a seizure.
In total its an alright skill game

The game wasn't especially fun. But I think the real point is that it doesn't use flash. It ran smoothly on my Galaxy Nexus with dolphin browser. Nice job.

You, my friend, realize a major point of this project. I'm glad it worked for you!
I do plan to make some other, more fun games, with a small crew who can design more eye appealing things to look at. I'm just a pretty good programmer really :D


Rated 4 / 5 stars

I enjoyed this more than I thought I would! The aesthetic was great, and the ability to choose a song was a nice touch. Still, it didn't hold me for more than one go because I found it SUPER easy! There was not one point in the game where I was lower than 80% health. Still, great little distraction!

I find it funny how some people think it's hard, while others think it's easy...


Rated 3.5 / 5 stars

Cool! I like the idea, the graphics are good, but the game seems too difficult, after about 10~15 seconds of the first song, the orange boat just kept shooting everywhere to a point where it was impossible to avoid any orange balls.
fix this and it would be a 4/5, maybe 5/5, but until then 3/5

I'll need to fine-tune my music algorithm some more...
