HandyGamesTM, one of the leading independent developers of mobile games, will enter the mobile devices with the next blockbuster on September 23rd. In Pirates Ahoy, all buccaneers and those who want to become one will be immersed in action-loaded naval battles in the Caribbean Sea. Apart from being highly addictive, Pirates Ahoy is with only one key extremely easy to control and provides both beginners and experienced gamers hours of fun. The player has to choose between four characters, e. g. the cruel Captain Wood or the pretty Bonny LaGrace, and on his quest for gold, rum and glory he has to be aware of unpredictable winds, dangerous swirls or hidden bombs. Other pirates will be sunk with mighty cannons or by ramming them till there is nothing left but hull planks.

Pirates Ahoy offers a wide range of new features among them graphics of absolute high-quality, unpredictable incidents like wind or swirls and cool sounds. Maps incl. various extras are generated randomly. Thanks to a hothand / multiplayer mode up to four players can fight fierce battles against each other on one single device which multiplies the fun factor.
