Help: I cannot get it working on my 2021 MacBook Pro. When I try to open the file it simply says "application cannot be opened." I assume this is because it is an intel-based app, and needs to be run with Rosetta. However, when I try to find the checkbox to run the app with Rosetta, it simply isn't there. Any suggestions?

Me to but i am on widows 10 I hope this gets patched


Tried that, now it tries to open but crashes before a window even appears. Guess it just hasnt been updated in so long that it dont work on M1 macs :(


The game is fun but awkward to play because the controls are weird. You should focus on UX a bit, maybe get feedback on different control sets, also better support for keyboard & mouse would be nice. :)


what are the keyboard keys to play?


My kid (11 years old) and I really enjoy the game !

Thank you so much for the fun (and the pirate monkey !)

It's very hard for me because I play with the "letters" of my keyboard and I have a french one, so the letters are not in the same place !

My kid wants to say "The game is so fun but a little hard ! And I like when it's a little hard. Thank you for creating this".

I am agree with him :)


This game is very enjoyable, played it with two of my friends and it was so much fun, I hope you continue to update it




what the heck are you trying to say man?

are you trying to say that the game requires a password?

if you want people to help you fix a problem, say it coherently.


no lo e jugado?


Can you please make a version that doesn't require a numpad? i have a computer without that feature.


add online mode


what is the linux code to instal


the game looks really good but i think that the control layout is weird and i should have the mouse for aiming and other things

that wouldn’t work because you can’t have multiple people using the mouse at the same time.

32bit support?


do we know when the next update is coming out?

He still alive.......


i can't get the game to work on my MacOS / M1 Macbook Pro . It looks like i am not allowed to run it: a system message tells me to get in touch with my local or network admin.  Do you think that is fixable? I can help for the tests on the M1 platform if needed.
