Pirate Pop Plus is a super addictive, gravity-defying, score-chasing, bubble-busting, retro-style arcade game.

Join Pete Jr on his quest to defeat the nefarious Bubble Pirate, an evil villain who has trapped the innocent townsfolk in bubbles!

Dodge and pop bubbles with your anchor while collecting power-ups and managing Bubble Pirate’s constant gravity-switching mischief! When you feel at your Piratey-est, test your skill in the ultra-challenging Hyper Mode... The game may be faster and harder, but you'll find treasures beyond your wildest dreams. Coins as far as the eye can see!

Collect coins to unlock content in the game’s shop like new music, new faceplates, buttons, backlights, and even characters for your bubble-popping mayhem! Yarr!

Pirate Pop Plus reviews and comments

Translated by

Nice little game received in the humble monthly of the month of November. For the appreciation, it will be the same as my French Sidekick: a little game unpretentious pretty well realized (it is a clone of Pang in version Gameboy Color) very easy to access and perfectly suited for small sessions, and with a lot of little tricks to Unlock. At 5 euros it is very honest.

The Idea of making a Game that could have appeared on the Gameboy at that time I find terrific. Unfortunately, I find Pirate Pop Plus far too simple to enjoy longer than ten Minutes. Feeling, I had already seen all the Game Mechanics after those ten minutes. If you are looking for a very short Game or want to chase your own High Score (don't give global Leaderboards) you may be happy. Fifth 5

Pirate Pop Plus looks boring. It's also boring, at the latest after a few Games. The retro look is quite funny, a While, but even that quickly wears off. And that such Luggage has already been annoyed when you got nothing better out of the little Mas ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ung at the time, it doesn't make it any better. Playing Nothing (or very little) cost me as it was Part of a Bundle. I wouldn't spend money on it as there are much better retro games, for small Money.

It's nice, I play a little half an hour for now, obtained in the humble monthly, I'm pretty happy. The basic price of 5 euro seems correct. This is a small retro-typed game/Gameboy, very simple to play, an action button to use his anchor in order to explode the bubbles, and a directional pad to move around in the game area. The game has some small ideas that I let you discover. I played the gamepad, and the game is quite playable on the keyboard. If you want to buy it, maybe wait until there are more reviews about it to give you an opinion. In short I recommend! Here you go:)

[game received in the humble monthly] Game without real interest, the kind of thing that is expected more of a free mobile game than a real game on steam. The controls seem to respond well, but the problem is the changes in gravity that you quickly made to lose a life if you were in a corner. The biggest problem I would say is the fact that the shop serves nothing other than custom Ta Gameboy, so that in reality, there is no real reason to continue playing apart from the score eventually. Not really incredible but coherent graphics in the concept of "you're on Gameboy". Ditto for the music, classic chiptunes but effective (which one can not even drop, either you have the music, or you play in silence, it's not whew). TL; DR eventually to buy on sale if you are a fan of mini mobile game on steam. Or else and for €2 less there is downwell which offers an infinitely superior challenge and depth of gameplay.
