Pirate’s Blood (2007)
Pirate’s Blood is a Flash Game I wrote in January of 2007. It is available online, and you can play Pirate’s Blood here.
I don’t remember exactly how I got the idea to create a pirate game, but I do know that as soon as I started working on it the idea just sort of exploded. It inspired me to read a bunch about pirates, although the stuff I learned never made it into the game.
The game play is pretty simple, but I think fun and different. The goal is to sink ships and then collect the treasure before it sinks to the bottom of the sea.
There is also a back-story for the game that I also never introduced. Someday when I polish the game off it will be something I add.
As this was my first Flash project, I learned a lot, but not just about Flash. I experimented with different user interfaces and you’ll find that the advanced ships actually have a successfully implemented AI.
