Didn't like this one. Visuals are cheesy, game isn't motivating, and it's boring.

Cursor turns to Jello!
Finally a game that convinced me to post my first review - because it is so annoying! Loved the first level of Skeleton Pirates, but once you reach Level 2-1, I found that the cursor turns to Jello - all wobbly, hard to control, and with a significant time lag. I'm not sure if this is meant to be a "feature" relating to the rain on that level, or if it is a bug, but it means that it is impossible to place any new defences and to pick up the stars earned. It's seriously annoying to lose because the game has taken away your ability to use the controls. This game is a real waste of money - avoid!

After Level 4-1.........
I don't know what happened to my original review of Skeleton Pirates. Maybe Big Fish deleted it because I gave away some hints. Oh well.....I will post them again! But this time it will be shorter but still keep the important parts.
In the special games section when you are surviving 10 rounds using only a few weapons......the mini-cannon will be useless. So to get around this just click on MENU and then go back in and you keep doing this until you get the heavy artillery that you need.
When you get to level 3-9 and 3-10 you will encounter the crawling skeletons. The only way to kill these are the catapult. Pick the double catapult. Some weapons you really have no use for. I have never used the mini-cannon and once or twice I used the bombs. I always use the same cannons each time unless I need the catapult for the crawlers. Oh, and you need the flame cannon for a certain skeleton and the black cannon for a certain skeleton. Anyway, I arrived at 4-1 and I am encountering the flying skeletons.
At this point I think I am going to give up on ever getting any farther. Starting off with only 50 stars and each star is STILL only 25? Not a very good way to get someone to keep playing the game. YOU HEAR ME DEVELOPERS?
Yeah, I know you can get the double chest that produces 2 stars instead of one. EVEN USING THIS......I should be able to start off with 100 stars, not 50. Each chest at this point should produce 50 stars, not 25.
As I said in my original review, when you reach level 3-1 you should start with 100 stars and each chest produce 50 stars instead of 25. I wonder if the developers can beat this game without cheating. I challenge them.........

A Very Dumb Game
This is one of the dumbest games I've seen...it's right up there with plants vs zombies. Both game formats are just plain awful!! The object is to protect your treasure from zombie pirates but you can't earn enough weapons in a timely fashion to do so. After you place the weapon, you just sit back and do nothing but watch it slowly kill the pirates. And I do mean slowly. No, really... slooooowly.
I don't understand why this game got so many high marks and good reviews because it is absolutely low in challenge and has absolutely no fun factor at all.
This game is a big yawner. Don't bother if you're looking for a fun challenge because you won't find it here.
