Pirates of the Stupid Seas
Can there be anything finer than sailing the seas, capturing ships, and looting treasure? Well, yeah, probably. Because, y'know. There's that whole scurvy thing. However, this be the tale of Captain James T. Stinkbeard, and the plundering of booty is all that he knows. So join him for some projectile physics sail-shooting action as you set off with the Pirates of the Stupid Seas, new from Backburner Games.
Pirates of the Stupid Seas has simple gameplay (shoot down other ships), but it's presented gorgeously, and has a decidedly surreal sense of humor: despite the subject, the tone is much closer to Sam & Max than Monkey Island. It's rare to find a physics shooter that's really as much about the arc of the projectile as its destination. The challenge doesn't pick up until quite a ways into the 25 levels. However, even if it's not that hard to do so, knocking guys off a boat with a cannonball never gets old. Put some shiver-repellant on yer timbers and check it out!
