MikaMobile, the developers behind Zombieville USA have just announced their followup project: OMG Pirates!.

OMG Pirates! is described as a "silly, bloody, cartoony homage to the classic 2D games of yesterday" not unlike Zombieville. The developers claim that they've stepped it up considerably when creating this game. OMG Pirates! is said to draw inspiration from beat-em-ups such as Castle Crashers, Double Dragon, etc, and includes a variety of enemies, locales, and boss battles.

We feel like we've struck a great balance between depth and playability - combat is performed with a simple two-button setup, one for attacking, one for defense, with different timing leading to different moves. Land enough blows fills your super gauge, which when tapped unleashes a spectacular finishing move.

The comes with a campaign mode, an unlockable "hard mode", and survival modes alongside some light RPG elements with increasing strength and moves. Reaching the maximum level will require more than one playthrough of the campaign mode. Here's the developer video:

OMG Pirates! is due to be submitted this weekend. We were big fans of Zombieville so are really looking forward to MikaMobile's following title.

    Can i be the first to say that this is going to be a great game? I loved Zombieville and love the art! Cant wait to see how this game will turn out. Definitely something to wait for.

    Looks pretty nice. Reminds me a bit of TapFu. I really hope that the controlls aren't reduced to a action button. As far as I can see there is a second, special ability(?) button.
    Will buy this game anyway :)

    After watching the video, I'm blown away. This is right up my alley. Then again most anything Martial Arts related is right up my alley and this looks solid and far better than Tap-Fu. I look forward to picking this up.

    Looks similar to Tap-Fu, but possibly executed better. I'll probably get it when it's released, looks pretty darn good!

  • NDN_Shadow

    Looks great. Looks like it's 3D movement on a 2D plane, similar to Castle Crashers, with a jump button and attack button. I'm also gonna assume the glowing orb at the top left is the special attack.

    It looks good fun, but please, if allowing different difficulties and number of lives in this one, please make sure each variation gets its own scoreboard.

    • Cranker

      Yes Please :)

        Each difficulty keeps track of your best rank on each mission separately.

  • Arock

    Awesome, except they should reverse the roles and have the player be a pirate who is killing the ninjas or maybe they should just make 2 games and call the other one OMG Ninjas!. I just prefer killing ninjas as a pirate. ;)

    • Jason

      I'm with Arok. I'd much prefer to kill ninjas. I'll probably pick this up anyway.

    OMG Pirates...AND Ninjas? Sign me up. And you have already given us Zombies so...

    ...when will you make a game with Aasquatches?

    Or even better, Pirate Ninjas Vs. Zombie Sasquatches.

    • Nukie

      Uh, I hate not being able to edit my mistakes. Aasquatches should be Sasquatches. Doh!

    I know its way too much to ask, and it won't happen, but I think it would be pretty cool if you could unlock zombieville skins for yourself and the enemies.

  • Tesio

    I can't be the only one that noticed that took a few environments pretty much straight out of Castle Crashers! That stage where they are fighting on the boat looks damn near identical. The game looks interesting but that really rubs me the wrong way.

    USA zombie creators make one of the most popular addicting game, Raft Wars. This OMG pirate game looks IMO lame. Make Raft wars and you will make it on app stores top 10

  • Nekrocat

    Castle Crashers was not the first of its kind.... but it does look like they are pulling a "Gameloft" on this one.
    The 'action' seems really slow in this game.

    I hope there's a lite version so I can check out the game play. I've learned never to trust these games.

    BUT it looks like a lot of fun!
