Captain Blood is a hack'n'slash game based on the novels by Rafael Sabatini which tells an alternative story of the famous captain’s adventures. The story unfolds in the world of noble robbers and the golden age of piracy in the Caribbean. This is a world full of mysteries, intrigues and amazing feats.

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.


  • Classic Pirate Adventure: Live a life of the most noble and brave pirate from the pages of Rafael Sabatini’s novel. Follow your dreams in a search of gold, glory and love.
  • Step on a sailing ship’s deck: Steer the ship “Arabella” through numerous battles with overwhelming enemies: capture enemy ships and destroy forts with cannon fire. Shatter masts, break hulls, rip sails and hit gunpowder barrels to win naval confrontations.
  • Real swashbuckling action: Rush into fiery hand-to-hand boarding with swashbuckler companions. Fight enemies with a complex fighting system using various combos and feints. Players can feel themselves in a middle of a battle! Use cutlasses, pistols, muskets, throwing knives and hand bombs to dispose of wily opponents. Don’t forget about dirty pirate tricks!
  • Enhance the Captain’s power: Get experience points for prevailing in battle. Develop new fighting techniques and feints to quickly dispatch enemies. Upgrade the “Arabella” with the spoils of war!
