  • Summary: A musical match-3 RPG brimming with pirates, ships, loot, and more gold than you can shake your rusty hook at!Move your pirate around the board by matching 3 or more tiles. With each match, the board shifts in the direction you swiped. Collect treasure as you visit mysterious jungle, desert, ice, and fire islands to reassemble a legendary Ultimate Sea Shanty. Fight to the death with evil pirates and monsters. Or, blast them with your arsenal of handy skills!* Universal App & iCloud for pirates on the go! Pick up exactly where you left off on any device. * Choose from 100 hats, shirts, swords, heads, and more to customize your pirate.* Use special skills to dodge enemies, collect extra loot, or win epic boss battles. * Build countless (okay, nine) different ships that improve your pirate’s buffs and stats.* Complete side quests and 50 GameCenter achievements -- you’ll be plundering for days. * Great replay value! Randomly generated islands keep the game going after completing the Ultimate Sea Shanty. * Share your exploits and pictures of your pirate with built-in Facebook and Twitter. Collapse

    Scurvy Scallywags is the type of game where even though you’ve probably played it before in some other form, you would really be missing out if you didn’t give it a try.

    Scurvy Scallywags is on my front page where it will stay for quite a while. I keep returning to it if I find myself with a few minutes to spare. It’s perfect for those quick gaming bursts and is enjoyable for long periods as well. Scurvy Scallywags is $1.99 on the apps store and is definitely worth the asking price. It brings some unique twists to the match-3 genre that can easily reel you back in.

    It's essentially Puzzle Quest with pirates, but the sense of humour and variations to the gameplay make this an enjoyable escapade all of its own.

    Fortunately, it has a reliable stream of Gilbert gags, puns, and musical numbers to fall back on, ensuring that just as the challenge eases off, the charm comfortably picks up the slack.

    Very fun, well done game. Lots of different maps and new items pop up and the story parts inbetween have a certain Monkey Island-ness to them.
    Also different from other Match-3's in that you need to guide your pirate around the board which can really affect what direction you want to move the pieces.
    Good times!
