Are there any Skeleton Pirates cheats?
Yes and no. I’ve yet to find any code that you put in to gain extra lives or whatever but I have found one tiny little thing you can do to make a huge difference later on in the game.
First search your computer for a file called explosion5.png. This file is the smoke that appears on your screen when the skeleton pirates drop a bomb.
Now open up that explosion5.png and remove the dark cloud graphic so that it’s basically just a blank background. So it goes from this to this …
to this …
Now when you restart the game and a level comes up that your deck is on fire, your view is no longer blocked by smoke and you no longer have to use the stupid water bucket.
Since you no longer need the water bucket you don’t even need to load it up at the beginning.
The Twin Mini Cannon behaves just like the mini cannon, but shoots in two directions: forward and backwards. The damage on the forward shells are small while the damage on the backwards shells is big.
The twin mini cannon (forward shells) do hit harder than the mini cannon does and the cost is exactly the same so I always just use the twin mini cannon, since it’s stronger than the mini cannon.
- Cost: 25 (free during the rain)
The flame thrower fires a flame that burns the pirate it hits instantly. It can burn the pirate either in front of or behind it.
The Twin Cannon shoots shells forward and backwards. The damage the twin cannon does is normal for forward shells and big for backwards ones.
The torch turns the shells of cannons that pass through the flame into more powerful fire shells. The damage the new fire shells do is big.
The torch only works on cannons, double cannons, twin cannons, mini cannons and twin mini cannons.
The Ghost Pirate or hidden pirate, isn’t hard to kill but you can only do so with one weapon, the Jack Cannon. When you use the Jack Cannon on these guys it makes his hat drop and turns him visible again.
Their strength is listed as high but I found a single Jack Cannon can take these guys down without any trouble.
The Giant Pirate is very strong and can destroy anything it comes in contact with, in one hit.
These guys really just need to be bombed to get rid of them before they have a chance to even get to your defenses.
These bad boys can shoot fireballs at your weapons. Their strength is extremely high and their only known weakness is the shield.
I personally hate these guys. They aren’t overly hard to kill but their fireballs trigger quickly and can easily take down your defenses. I personally mini bomb them as soon as they come up just to get them out of the way.
The Cannon Pirate uses cannons to bomb your weapons. His shells result in holes in your deck and then you have to use the wooden plank to repair the deck.
His strength is very high and his only real weakness is the barrel and shield combo. My advice is to bomb them every time you see one.
The Concealed Pirate is concealed behind his heavy shiled that can not be penetrated. His strength is high. His weakness oddly enough is the twin cannon.
I found the fastest way to take one of these guys down is to put a twin cannon directly behind it. It seems to do a ton of damage to them from behind.
