There are two types of stars in the Skeleton Pirates game. There are gold and silver stars. The silver stars are what you must collect to earn money which you can then use to buy weapons to defeat the onslaught of skeleton pirates. But what is a gun without bullets? And that’s why you need gold stars. Gold stars are collected to earn ammunition.
When a gold or silver star drops from a flying bird or from a treasure chest you must click on it before it disappears or you lose it forever.
