Battle mighty sea monsters, hunt for treasure and sack cities in this epic pirate adventure!

You are on the run from the evil Lord Haddock, and it is only a matter of time before he catches you! Use the time to sail the seven seas, building up a powerful crew, arsenal and ship by exploring seas and ports, completing quests and finding treasure maps and chests.

Buccaneer! has 16 different areas to adventure in, 16 different enemies, and 4 different alternate endings, each with their own unique boss fight and quest path to unlock.

Will you slay the mighty Kraken, find the lost city of El Dorado, or drink from the mythical Fountain of Youth?

Developers notes:

Hi! I'm pepperpunk, the designer, artist, animator, and programmer for this game. This is my first major game which took several months to make and I hope you all have fun with it!

I will be active in the comments for a long while replying to you all, so if you have any questions, comments or would just like a subtle hint (in pirate speak) about how to complete some of the harder parts of the game, type them in below and I'll get back to you as soon as possible!

I'd like to thank the Hardcore Nation forums for all their excellent playtesting that has made this game so well-balanced, and TurboNuke/LongAnimals for the sponsorship. Cheers!

Enjoy, ye landlubbers! P-)

P.S. A cookie for the first person to find "The Island" and post the adventure text in the comments. I'm afraid I can't offer an actual cookie, but I can draw one with your name on it and give it an eyepatch or something.

Edit: tgryphon won the prize, as promised, here is a picture of her with the cookie: http://imgur.com/3imrFGf

UPDATE: Newgrounds Medals for this game are now live! Can you get them all?

Edit: Wow, thanks for the frontpage! Super-happy about that.

Jeez, that was a load of fun! But getting El Dorado took me forever. I'm not sure if like or dislike all the luck-based events in the game, but that's just nitpicking. The only serious criticism I have is that, yeah, El Dorado is very difficult to conquer, you need some luck to do it. The other endings are reasonably difficult to get, but El Dorado is almost too tough. Other than that it's a nice game with lovely designs and great creative ideas. Keep it up!
HINT/SPOILER: It took me a fully repaired max. level ship loaded with all kinds of cannonballs (at least 40 of chain, grape and hot, at least 6 of monkey and parrot) and a crew of 228 heavily armed men (215 cutlasses, 215 pistols) to finally take it. And btw, don't try to enter the Gideon's ship, the game can't cope with that and will send you back to the map.

It gets very repetitive at the end, the combat is somewhat dull, the trading aspect is as boring as it comes.

I really like the sea aspect and battles pretty unique to this game
