IGN writes: "While touch controls are a great way to innovate, they have to be done right or your game is going to suffer. Unfortunately, Pirate Master III's controls kill what is actually a pretty good game.
You play as a lone pirate making your way through 14 different levels on a quest to retrieve five statues hidden in each level. The game is a 2D side-scroller with spike pits, lava holes, vines, enemies, baskets and other obstacles you must get by to collect the statues and move on to the next level. Once you touch the first statue, though, you awaken a curse that starts the timer on each level. You have until the timer reaches zero to collect all of the remaining statues."
