Captain Blood is an action game about the notorious pirate. Players take the role of a brave and noble corsair, following his intriguing and amazing adventures in 1685 Spanish Main. The game’s mission-based structure allows players a diverse battlefield on both land and sea, with ship-to-ship battles and swashbuckling sword fights to gain control of boarded ships.
Players can experience directly controlled naval battles manually firing ship cannons from the foredeck, or navigating their course in third-person view while cannons aim automatically and fire only when commanded. Wind strength, direction, weather conditions, ship parameters and cannon fire range must all be weighed to achieve victory. Land missions place players in the character of Captain Blood, fighting multiple enemies while gamers parry, thrust and sidestep through different combinations against enemy pirates and soldiers. Gamers gain special points as they fight through ghastly sea dogs, acquiring new fighting techniques and gold for weapons and equipment.
