Sail The Pixel Art Seas In New Retro Runner Castaway Pirate
While people like to think being a pirate was all about rum and buried treasure for some eye-patch aficionados it was a matter of life and death as evidenced by the challenging new pixel art runner Castaway Pirate. In this retro themed pseudo-platformer from indie developer Huebicle Games it’s up to players to survive an ominous ocean filled with deadly aquatic creatures and ancient architecture by majestically hopping into the air with the use of a magical oar as they are guided by fireflies. Ravenous crocodiles will attempt to eat players for dinner, lackadaisical turtles will serve as impromptu spring boards, and massive octopi will dominate the lower portion of the screen forcing players to take to the skies with the aid of gravity defying seagulls. Platforming fans will dig this simple but challenging retro runner.
Castaway Pirate is free to download on Google Play.
