    Pirate's Treasure goes that one extra step with dual-stick shooters by adding challenge based gameplay, but once you're pimped out things can get repetitive.

    At $1.99, I can confidently give Pirate's Treasure a recommend. The technical issues are manageable, and the controls can be frustrating, but they get the job done.

    This piratical themed dual-stick shooter has a lot of spunk, but it is held back by the fact that it grows old too quickly.

    The campaign mode certainly sets this game apart from most other dual-stick shooters, which tend to be just endless survival games.

    Pirate's Treasure is a doubloon in the giant chest of twin-stick shooters: it's worth its weight, even if it's only one of many.

    Overall, its a solid shooter. For fans of Minigore that thought the gameplay was lacking, you'll certainly getting more out of Pirate's Treasure. But despite the campaign adding longevity to proceedings, it manages to become very samey after a short time.

    In summary, if you want a dual-stick shooter, you can do a lot better than Pirate's Treasure.
