Nice game!! I included it in my LowRezJam compilation, if you’d like to take a look :)

I'm a sucker for pirate games and roguelikes so this was right up my alley. Great job on the UI too - felt very smooth to navigate, from character creator to town options and store. Excellent work all around (though the enemies destroying my ship while I was on land felt a little unfair ;)

Goodness! Combat here was really harsh, but I loved it! The concept is great and it totally made me feel like playing some lost GBC game there! :P

This is quite impressive! Turn-based rogue-likes are always a good time, and the art and sounds in 8-Bit Buccaneer were excellent :) Fantastic work!

Looove this concept.  I'm all about turn-based roguelikes, plus I'll never not get excited when I hear the phrase "treasure map". The music was sweet, and character customization was a really nice touch (could only be improved by adding a "random" button). The game is a little too hard, in my opinion, but great execution overall! :)

Cool game !
I bought a map, found the treasure, but then I went to a hard part of the sea, with fierce krakens and a lot of other pirates ! x) 
I'll love to see more of this game !

This is a great little roguelike! I agree with the comment that the hits/misses aren't too clear (took me a couple runs to figure out how the combat was working) but other than that it was pretty fun.

Very nice game, impressive that you have put in towns and character creation. The combat system could have been a little bit more elaborate - I'm not always sure what is going on in terms of hits etc - so would have been good to animate this more clearly.

Developer

That's a really fair point, and I see exactly what you mean. I'll look into adding simple animations for when enemies are damaged, that way it'll be easier to tell who's actually getting hit!

Wow a full fledged game! Great sound and art. But most of all great feeling.

Glad to see I am not the only one with turn based movement, adds tactics to the gameplay

Developer

Glad you liked it!! Yeah, I really like the turn based movement style, I find it a lot of fun to put players in sticky situations where they have to think carefully!

What an amazing game, very cool, I loved the character creation, so many features to customize you character, the sounds are so good, a gameboy vibe, I loved, so many things done in this game and everything so well made, great job, it is possible to see that you put a lot of effort in it, great game !

Absolutely amazing, I have to force myself to stop to play it! It is simple but very addicting!

Everything is really cool and I would like to see this game developed more in the future. Let me know if you think to do so! :-)

Thanks so much! I'm definitely going to add some more to this game, nothing absolutely huge, but I'd really like to add the ability to upgrade your ship, and fit it out with cannons that do different things. I also have big plans for the "pub" option in the towns...

I am going to follow you to see your progress :-)

Oh thanks so much!!  I'm glad you like it!
