Have you ever watched the end of the old Disney film "Swiss Family Robinson" where they place booby traps everywhere to thwart the pirates, and said to youself, "that looks like fun!?" Well we have, and so we made this!

Pirate Defense is a tower defense game with a twist: traps! Use powerful trap combinations to send your pirate enemies through a whirlwind of pain... as well as earn you big gold rewards and points! Can you stop the pirate waves from reaching the top of the screen?

ArmorGames has provided 2 free bonus game modes as well, 100k Gold and Fixed. Both are awesome.

Finally, be sure to check out the Pirate Defense theme song! You can even sing along!


Videos, tooltips, a sample level, and a tutorial are provided in the game.

Primarily you use the mouse to lay down traps. Use "Linkage" to enter linkage mode and connect triggers to traps to set them off. Hotkeys are also provided and can be changed through settings. 'P' for Pause.

good, but not great

Its a good game, and an interesting variation to the defense genre.

What mainly holds it back is that the game gives too many options to the player at one, its a little overwhelming for a game with a radical concept like this.
Also, linkages seemed overcomplicated, just dragging from a trigger to a trap or a trap to another trap should make a link, while the linkage button could be used for more complicated task (deletion of links or time delays).

Overall I liked it and I look forward to a sequel.

10/10 5/5

great game would have been a 4 but the song pushed me over the edge thanks for the laugh.


I love pirates and newgrounds was missing a good game about PIRATES, Yarr!

P.S.: nice song in the end.

I must be missing something...

Well I set the traps up and I connect the right triggers and the guys walk over them, and nothing happens.... I basically had to have a slowly downhill battle with just turrets, and that made it into just another turret gane.

So yeah I wonder why it doesn't work for me.

HeroInteractive responds:

I think you may be missing something. Check out the Pre-Set sample level to see an example. Also, remember that traps have a cooldown time before they can be set again. Until they are reset they won't go off. You can see the little orange clock next to a resetting trap.

Good game

The game works wonderfully, but it's really tough!
