The game is set in a pirate universe and the idea is to complete sea battles as a Pirate Gunner by solving puzzles to keep your guns firing continuously.

As you progress through the story mode you will be able to see small cut scenes which are designed to be humorous and sort of work as a reward for completing each level. The story surrounds the idea of being a pirate and the story of finding an amazing pirate treasure haul on the Golden Island. As your crew progresses to the island you will learn more about them as well as see a number of different plot twists. By protecting your crew and getting them to the island safely through completing puzzles and working as a gunner, you will be rewarded handsomely with pirate gold.
The story mode has over 20 original sea battles that get progressively harder as you advance. The puzzles will continue to challenge you as you go through the story mode. There are also achievements that you can unlock as you complete the 20 act story.
The puzzle mode is an ongoing mode that challenges players to solve generated puzzles. You will need to use a limited amount of moves to complete the puzzle which can offer up a real challenge.
The arcade mode is where you are set against an unlimited amount of ships to see how long you can last completing puzzles as fast as you can. By connecting the game to Facebook you can post your favorite high scores from the arcade mode to see which of your friends is the best of the game.
