Plunder!

by chowdy - Mini LD 60 Entry

WASD to move, click to shoot.

Our chosen theme was Islands from LD17, but You Are the Villain from LD25 could work as well :) Play as a pirate pillaging ports on the high seas. Capture all the settlements in the region to win, but be careful of the authorities!

The Graphics looked beautiful i really liked how when you would shoot at other ships at the same time they shoot at you your projectiles would collide.

Absolutely beautiful game! So much gameplay for the MiniLD entry. Played far too long - very simple and addictive, yahhr!

The graphics, the music and the idea is great, great and even more great. To make the game even better, I have some suggestions.

- When you release the button on the keyboard, let the boat continue to sail in the direction, you already are sailing towards. This will give a better sense of actually sailing a ship.

- Make it so that you can only shoot cannon balls from the right and left side of the ship.

- Make enemy ships always trying to shoot you from a distance. A gread tactics, as is now, is to stop your ship and let all the enemies ships sailing up to the side of your ship. Here they have a tendency to kill each other, instead of killing you.

- Let some of the ships sail from the ports. This may make it look like there are there to protect ports.

- Allows the player to change the view. Perhaps with the mouse.

- Here finally a very small thing, the arrow over the ship does not have to cast a shadow.

These suggestions are not meant as hadeful criticism, but as suggestions for improvement. In fact I think you already have made a really gread game.

I included your game in an article of my favorites, but since you have not posted yet and dont have a public profile, I cannot award a trophy to your profile! If you do at some point post, thus activating your profile, let me know so I can add a trophy to it! http://fireside.gamejolt.com/post/jam-favorites-minild-60-vimdvedg
