Storyline[edit | edit source]

Untitled Stage

Legend has it that a revered pirate named Barbaros once stole the world’s treasure and hid it on a mysterious island. Though no one knows of its exact location, stories about the untold riches that lay deeply hidden have been passed down through the ages, driving pirates from all walks of life to pursue the alluring prizes.

One of these treasure seekers, an apprentice pirate named Zack, discovers upon a mysterious talking skull -- the skull of Barbaros himself! Barbaros promises to reveal the key to the island, but only if Zack helps to lift the curse he is under.


Gameplay[edit | edit source]

Gameplay Example

Players will explore wondrous environments and stages, solving puzzles and interacting with this amazing world as they search of vast riches and the ultimate goal: becoming the greatest pirate the world has ever seen. Inventive gameplay mechanics and controller movements allow players to move and open objects, transform items, unlock new pathways and navigate through a jungle, ice temple, volcanic caves and more, each with multiple sub-areas.

Players will use the Wii Remote controller to rotate handles, turn keys to open doors, play a piccolo and much more in order to solve the progressively difficult puzzles and collect items that will lead to the legendary pirate ship.
