Yarrr pirates,
I had to fix a bug which made the different rage attack types unselectable. The update is available now. Also the responsible crew member will now be keelhauled (unfortunately the crew is only me...).

Also what is going to happen with PirateHell now?

The answer is easy: I'll expand it.

I'll create a world map which will replace the mission selection menu. Also on this map there'll be harbours where you can buy stuff and select random missions (like wanted posters or protection missions) and find hidden treasures.

"Meeh. This surely is going to be DLC, eh?"

Nope. I'll take the "minecraft"-way which means: If you bought the game, all updates will be free. Nevertheless as the game is growing the price will be raised a little.

So long,

Just made it after some attempts.. sell all upgrades of all ships, select smallest ship, upgrade sails as far as possible, always take the mined shortcut, you can take some hits and recover slowly. Don't waste your concentration on shooting. Always take the shortest path, never stop, take all turbos despite the penultimate. That should do it. :)

Try with the small ship (it's the fastest one) and upgrade the sails (if you spend money in other upgrades you can remove these to regain the gold). Also use the booster spots.

On the down right of the race track is a small shortcut (the part which is peppered with mines ^^). If you manage to go throught it you will gain some more seconds.

Good luck. : )

I think I'm going to present the game in a Indie-series I'm planning to do on www.whitex-modd.de. :)

Great to hear that : )

I'm currently experimenting with sail simulation and a new ocean system. Also I'm working on a world map which will replace the mission menu. On it you will be able to travel around, select missions and some other stuff. It's all in the concept phase but it looks promising.

So all in all: yeah, I'm going to release updates which will enhance the game.
