Mika 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.
