PirateBattle.io is an action-packed game where you battle other pirate ships and collect coins. You can use the coins to upgrade different parts of your ship. Ships that get destroyed will drop the coins that they have collected. Make your ship unique by customizing it with different sail colors and one of the 200+ flags that are available in the customization menu.
Controls Use your mouse to move and shoot. Use space to get a boost. Use keys 1, 2, 3 and 4 to upgrade your ship if you can afford the upgrade. You can use your mouse as well to click on the upgrade button but that is inconvenient since your ship will follow the mouse. There is 1 second cooldown on shooting and 3 second cooldown on boosting. Shoot other ships to deal damage to them, it takes roughly 4 hits to sink a small ship without any upgrades and it can take up to 10 hits to sink a larger ship with lots of armor. Sail close to coins to collect them. Coins will heal you when you pick them up. Strategy You can choose what part of your ship that you want to improve when you have enough coins to afford an upgrade. You start with each category at level 1 and you can upgrade them until they have reached level 8. The upgrades get more expensive when the level increases. Upgrading health increases your hp and it will also increase the size of your ship, making it easier to hit. Upgrading speed makes you faster, making your turning radius larger which could be a problem when you want to make tight turns. Upgrading armor will decrease the damage that you take from incoming bullets. Upgrading damage will increase your damage as well as increasing the range of your bullets.
