Really cool! Pretty Artstyle, like it. Killed one ship with the canon, was a bit challenging, and the other by boarding it. The second time it was really fast so I lost :) The dueling silhouettes could use some animations, that would give it more action. And some nice music would work wonders. great job!

My heart sank when I saw this pop up! Thankfully it seems we both went in different paths; this one being more simulation-like, with mine being somewhat arcadey, so there's room for both of them!

I did enjoy this, and the different take on the sword-fighting mini-game was nice as well. The graphics are absolutely lovely too.

Thanks for checking it out! I really felt the time constraint this time round so I didn't have a chance to make the combat any more involved or add animations.

Love the water effects and the whole look of the game in general. It is certainly challenging, especially the shore quarding mini-bosses, but I still had a lot of fun playing it.

It's hard to figure out what to initially do in this game. The concept seems fun but the rhythm mini game is extremely hard to do.

Nearly missed it because there was no browser version. Really liking the graphics and game is quite in depth as well, considering it's a jam entry. Would like to see bigger version of this at some point :)

Nice graphics. Love the little boats and water trails. Sweet main menu dude

Very impressive! It looks really great and the minimalistic music is very atmospheric. Both the boarding and ship-to-ship combat work well. A detail I liked is that saving costs money, which forces you to be more careful (especially in the earlier part of the game). I do miss that you can't upgrade your hull or something though (or did I miss something?), which became a bit of a problem near the end, where I'd have to return to a port to get my ship fixed after every 1 or 2 fights or so, which became a bit tedious. But other than that I really liked it a lot!

I really like the look of this and it's impressive how much you effectively packed into the 64x64 resolution. 

The game doesn't work at windows

Can you tell me what version of Windows you're using or what is the error you're getting?

edit: If it was a missing DLL error, then that should be fixed now.
