"Scurvy Scallywags is an enormous breath of fresh air if you've been spending a bunch of time with the current generation of match-3 games." - Touch Arcade
"Here's our bold statement of the day: Scurvy Scallywags is what every puzzle game secretly wants to be like." - Jay is Games
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.

Don't deprive yourself of this booty!!!
I didn't expect to have every day of the last 2 months of my life filled with ships, swords, & skeletons. I didn't expect to be enchanted with beautiful, textured artwork behind every menu. I didn't expect to laugh out loud repeatedly while reading the descriptions for every item I came across. And I didn't expect to fall in love with this game. Alas, I think I just did. Actually, I've been in love since May, when I introduced Scurvy Scallywags to my iPod 5.
This is, without a doubt, my most played iOS game to date... & I have some tremendously good games on here!! Somehow, this little gem of an app took over them all from day one.
I'd like to express my appreciation to the developers for creating such a devilishly fun, supremely polished work of art that I have been genuinely excited to tell friends & family about. You've made something truly great here!!
The IAPs are minimal & non-compulsory (a breath of fresh air in the App Store), and when devs make something as good as this, customers will WANT to support it (& do so happily - I did, & I almost never get IAPs!).
Anyway, thank you so much, & to anyone still reading this (who does not yet have Scurvy)... Go take some Vitamin C!
Er, I mean... Go buy this game! Really!!
Why are you still reading this?
I thought this was great when I first started to play, but then it became very monotonous and the problems came forth. The latest news says you can play music while in game...not true. It kills the music every time. Then if you don't play for awhile, you get on-screen pop-ups. I turned off notifications, but still get an annoying "1" next to the app to draw attention to itself...which is likely to just make me delete the annoying thing.
Further, the game doesn't scale well at all. You'll start out being able to battle the baddies with a few sword matches, but even halfway through the game, they come out at 2-3 times your power. A lot of the special skills are worthless, and amount to a light tickle against anything past the first island.
And I like Game Center challenges, but these are just tedious. I've beat the game, went through twice after an untimely death...and hit 30. Now I need lvl 50 and to clear 100 islands...really? Add a challenge and not just a time sink.
Really enjoying this charming and witty game! So far: good game play, good power-ups, entertaining. So far I've died a couple times. At first I was sad how much gold it took to resurrect my pirate, but then I just let the pirate die and it turns out you get to keep all your stuff when you start over except some level point upgrades. So I'm on pirate 3 or 4 now and each time I get a bit further before dying, and each time there are some new quests and stuff. So actually that seems cool.
So my only complaint is that I can't listen to my podcasts or Audible while playing. A bummer and may eventually limit my replay but for the time being, the game is so good I can live with it. I recommend this one.
