RENTON, WASHINGTON USA (June 22, 2006)
- Casual game developer Primate Games announced today a new version of "Avast!", the turn based piracy game that is the flagship for the indie company.

"Avast!" is a small and robust casual game designed around a boardgame-like play style with simple strategic elements very similar to chess or checkers. As Captain Suzette, a struggling Inn keeper, out to earn her fortune and save her beloved home, players must position their fleet against brigands and scallywags of all types as they sail the treacherous oceans. Harvest items, race to goals, collect treasure and scuttle opponents' ships in one of the four gameplay scenarios.

Full of rich art and inspiring music, the story mode alone offers 40+ hours of turn based pirate fun for all ages.

Version 1.0 of Avast! comes with:
50 unique levels.
4 different game scenarios.
Multiplayer "Skirmish" mode for turn swapping play.
All original musical score by composer C. Stephen Murray.
11 separate opponents to defeat.
Multiple endings.
20+ "Power Up" items to enhance gameplay.
Hilarious characters and story.

Major changes for v2.0 of Avast! are:
Ship speed setting
