Fantasy Pirates Demo (EnjoyUp Games) - Free

Join in the adventures of the pirate clan. Sail the seas in search of islands and forts with treasures. It is a world of fantasy where you will find unusual things like piggy boats, rare sea monsters and all types of strange objects. Keep both treasures and enemies in sight with 360-degree circular navigation, a simple, yet very effective system. Another ability of your fantastic pirate ship is that it jumps and dives, which is very necessary to dodge or jump over obstacles and move forward in the adventure. The touch screen controls shooting, which means you will have intuitive and absolute precision. Try Adventure mode with a pyramid-shaped map where you choose both your path and the difficulty, and fight with over 15 enemies simultaneously. Get special items, such as the 'super cannon', which will give you total destructive power, devastating everything you find along the way, or the 'flea ship' item, where you become as small as an elusive flea. Challenge your friends in the 1-on-1 online mode to become the world's greatest pirate!

£2.29 themes now?! As if £1.79 wasn't bad enough.

I really like what they did with those series dk climber and mario vs dk, although the second game is very different and *spoiler* get to the end of the gba game, all of the critics back then did not . I have the same set up both games in the same box, except it's just the regular ds box.
anway another world not 3d was a missed opportunity, and surely fractured soul is worth the price.
