PirateHell is a fast top-down shooter. Take command of a sailing ship and fight your way to honour, gold and all the pretty things a pirate likes.
Fun game to just sit sown and enjoy. Great for the kids too. It works right out of the gate on Linux so major kudos there. Only oddity, guessing this is desura, is that it still only shows the demo I installed and not the full game. Hopefully later down the road after a clean desktop install I wont have issues.
A great game for long evening. I like the music, I love the graphics and the gameplay. There's only one thing I'd like to somehow change. Nothing stops you from farming fully upgraded ship and town in 1st chapter and then it's kinda too easy.
Aaand the escort missions are pretty nice, had to replay them a lot to win them :)
I recently took the time to do a video review of this title. I hope it's useful for anyone checking the game out. It's reasonably entertaining and fast paced. At the same time, it's not very long and really won't have much replay value.
