Description of Skull & Crossbones
A dull pirate fencing platform game from Tengen, Skull and Crossbones is much inferior to the swordfighting sequence in Sid Meier's Pirates!, despite more detailed graphics and Caribbean scenery. Your character, the ship's captain, is blocky, and animated with very jerky movements. True, there is a few swordfighting moves you can make, but they all look quite similar anyway, and turning to face the other direction can be an exercise in frustration. The enemy pirates, with the exception of a few end-level bosses, all look the same and aren't even smart enough to move around-- sometimes they will just stack up on top of each other in one corner of the screen, looking more like bowling pins than human beings. Play this one only if you're really bored of Pirates! swordfighting, although I can't imagine why :) A disappointment, to say the least.
