Don't forget your old shipmateby Dining Philosopher - Jam Entry
You're a pirate, swashbuckling about in the Caribbean. Outgunned and outnumbered by the navy, you have to rely on your seamanship and your single, special, reusable cannonball to survive.
The clouds show you which way the wind blows, you cannot sail directly into it, but have to beat it. Nautical term for zigzag.
Press and hold F to Fire your special cannonball.
With C you can change the position of the cannon.
Press B to plunder a wreck.
Steer with left and right keys.
Hold the down key to slow down.
Hold the up key to go faster, but you'll pay for the wear!
How much gold can you plunder?
Since we ran out of time there are still some graphics glitches, the game runs pretty slow and enemies don't respawn. If you've sunk them all, no win is triggered yet. If you shoot your cannonball on land, there is no way to get it back.
We may make a post-compo with more enemies, harbors, island interactions and upgrades.
Comments are very welcome. :)

IMPORTANT NOTE: If you want to place in the final results, you NEED votes. The easiest way to get votes is by rating other games. Judging lasts for 3 weeks following the end of Ludum Dare. For best effect, rate 20 games as soon as possible. Rating more games is encouraged.
MORE TIPS AND DETAILS AT THE BOTTOM OF THIS PAGE
TEAMS: Teams entering the Jam should pick a single representative to submit your game, or create a team specific account you can share. We currently do not support Team Voting, but sharing an account and together playing and rating games is acceptable.
NOT LOGGED IN?: If you get a message about not being logged in, even though you are, it’s because your web browser cached the non-logged in page. You can fix this by either refreshing your cache or clearing your cache. CTRL+F5 in many browsers. Chrome is a bit more work. Press F12 to enable Developer Mode, then you can right click on the refresh button and select “Empty Cache and Hard Reload”. This option is unavailable if you are not in Developer Mode.
PORTS: Ports to other platforms can be done after the deadline. That said, the sooner you finish your port, the sooner people can play your game, improving your chances of placing in the final results. For best results, provide a Web version of your game, or a Windows version with no dependencies. Also be sure to rate about 20 games to improve your visibility.
MY GAME DOESN’T SHOW UP: If you can’t find your game, it’s usually because the URL to your downloads are missing ‘http://‘. Fix your URLs (http://mysite.com/mygame.zip) and you will show up.
MY GAME CRASHES, IS UNBEATABLE, OR I MADE A TYPO: We allow you to fix crash or win condition bugs after the deadline (in a sense, like “porting” to support more players). We also allow “typo” bugs. I.e. A true that should have been a false, a word that should have been a different word, very tiny changes that you would have caught if you had more sleep. We leave this open to interpretation, but generally speaking your game should be identical to the game you submitted. No new features, just things you messed up last minute. Typos.
