Everybody loves a good pirate game, and there never seems to be enough around. With the resurgence of such classics like Pirates! and more recently The Secret of Monkey Island, there might just be some momentum in the genre. Enter Buccaneer: The Pursuit of Infamy a PC game from independent developers Stickman Studios. It's all the pirate action, without the pirate mess. Aside from the booty, the best part of pirate games are the ship to ship combat, and that is what Buccaneer is all about.
The Co-Op Experience: Each player chooses a ship and sets out to destroy as many opponents as they can. The score can be bolstered by capturing treasure boats, attacking towns, and picking up loot from fallen ships.The Co-op Game itself is broken down into 5 separate mini-campaigns, each containing 4 individual missions. Once a campaign is selected the players are presented with the first mission, which must be completed successfully to unlock the next mission. If a mission is failed, the players must retry it and can not proceed with the campaign until they have successfully completed the map they are on. A running score is kept as the players progress through the levels and this will be uploaded to the Hall of Infamy once a campaign is completed successfully.
