Your boat is under attack from those who want your crew and your money! Bomb and destroy your enemies before they come onboard and take over your ship. Each level will tell you how many enemy ships are approaching. Turn to the side to fire, as your boat shoots cannons from both sides. Push the space bar to fire cannons. Keep in mind that your crew cannot load the cannons immediately. Keep an eye on your cannon count at the bottom of the screen. You can also monitor how much gold you have in your coffers, your hull integrity, and how many crew members are left.
