129264Mika Mobile's followup title to Zombieville has finally arrived in the App Store. OMG Pirates! is described as a "silly, bloody, cartoony homage to the classic 2D games of yesterday" and wrapped with great art style and animation.

The game uses a simple two button attack system with different moves unlocked as you gain experience during the game. Campaign mode delivers discrete levels which introduce new enemies and boss battles.

We haven't made through the campaign mode quite yet, but the game is well put together with really wonderful art and animation. The additional unlockable combo moves also seem to add depth to the action, though it does seem to take a little practice. The normal campaign starts out (refreshingly) difficult, and I've had some genuine trouble making it through some of the levels. We heard that a "Hard" mode is unlocked once you do make it through, adding to the gameplay time.

More impressions are filtering in in the discussion thread. We'll post more thoughts after we are able to power through the game.

App Store Link: OMG Pirates!, $1.99

      Hehe, I bought myself Sword of Fargoal a couple of days ago as a birthday present to myself. Bit premature though as my birthday is in June! ; )

    would not have given this game a second glance if you had not posted a video. The artwork and smooth animations are top notch.

    Ninja vs Pirates - who could pass that up?

    Thanx Touch!

    The description reads: "Precise touch-screen controls that are simple to learn but hard to master." I'm guessing the controls suck. :(

    Waiting for a few more updates, I remember what they did to Zombieville on first release.

      You are guessing wrong.

    The whole Ninjas vs Pirates meme is really lame. I'm not a fanboy of either of them but it's obvious that Ninjas are superior.
