Title screen.

Buccaneers is a pirate-themed beat-em-up developed and published by Duintronic for the arcade in 1989. This was the company's first and last game. It was never ported to any other platform.

I found this game randomly while exploring MAME.

Status

I do not own this game, I have not beaten it, and have no desire to ever play this game again.

Best Version: Arcade

— This section contains spoilers! —

Good

  • The game has pretty nice graphics.

Bad

  • The game is terribly monotonous, the enemies are very dull.
  • You play on a 2-D platform without the ability to move up or down despite the graphics making it look like you should.
  • Jumping is very difficult to control.
  • The ending is the same as the title screen.
  • The bosses are defeated almost entirely by mashing the kick button.

Ugly

  • Play control is so slow and sluggish that the game is practically unplayable.
  • With only 4 stages, the game is really short. It can be finished in about 5 minutes.
