Plunder Pirates is getting into the holiday spirit with a brand new update for iOS that turns your island into a deadly winter wonderland. That’s just the tip of the iceberg though, as it also includes a bunch of awesome new features. Midoki said it best:
Happy holidays! This update should check a few items off of your wish list! The world of Plunder Pirates has been transformed into a winter wonderland for the festive season. Scads of holiday goodies await!
Here, here, the v1.3.5 includes some awesome — and highly requested — features, including:
- Edit Mode – Do you constantly scream because you’ve been attacked and all your gold and grog have been plundered? Well, the problem is likely that your island is poorly designed (join the club!). Well, in our defense tweaking your island has been easy — that is — until now! In edit mode you’re free to play around with layouts until you find the one you like. This is probably the #1 requested feature.
- Festive Island – Bring your sled and snow boots, as your island has been transformed into a winter wonderland complete with Christmas trees, twinkling lights, and lots and lots of snow. Sparky would be proud! (if you get this reference comment below)
- Santabrutenclaws! – Frankenbrutenstein has been resurrected as Santa! I am afraid he might not fit down the chimney though.
- Night and Day – Watch night descend on your island. You know, it must have been hard sleeping in eternal daylight. Not to mention the awful sunburns. Needless to say, the pirates are happy now (as happy as pirates can be at least).
- Captain New Name – If you don’t like your name you can now change it. If I wasn’t so scared I would suggest that Santabrutenclaws change his name to some kinder, gentler … maybe Robin or Daniel.
- Winter Visitors – Check out the exploration map for now Ice Ships, Festive Fish, and more. Just try not to sink.
- Bug Fixes – As usual, bugs have been squashed (and hopefully not many have been added).
