Well well well people! Guess what movie is coming to the big screens soon? As though we have not had enough of Pirates of Caribbean movies, there is now a new one called Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides. So Johnny Depp fans please rejoice as you will get to see him reprise his role as Captain Jack Sparrow in the fourth installment of the Pirates and the Caribbean series of movies. Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides is actually based on a 1987 historical fantasy novel written by Tim Powers. So do not be surprised that this movie will follow the plot of the novel, since Powers sold the film rights for the novel to Disney. Eager fans might want to hunt for the book and have a good read first, but that may also spoil the enjoyment of the movie. Do not fret as Jack Sparrow will be taking over Jack Shandy, the name of the pirate in the book.
Just to provide a sneak peek into the plot, in this piraty episode, we see Captain Jack Sparrow meet a mysterious woman by the name of Angelica who apparently knows something about the fabled Fountain of Youth. Captain Jack Sparrow (perhaps under Angelica's love spell) is forced to board Blackbeard's ship, the Queen Anne's Revenge, and on this vessel he goes out to seek the Fountain of Youth fighting zombies and mermaids along the way.
Hope you enjoyed the short write-up. You might be interested to have some fun on this facebook page, where you can play three different Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides games. So jump on-board the Queen Anne’s Revenge and check out the three games here –http://facebook.com/AllAboardSG. The three games are Pirate Yourself, Battle Galleons and Skull Creator.
If you check out the games, Pirate Yourself and Skull Creator are kind of similar as they both allow you to create a pirate face, just that for Skull Creator you do it on a skull while for Pirate Yourself you can actually unload your own picture. Check out my creations below.
This is a screenshot of a Pirate skull i created using the Skull Creator. Now that I look at it, it looks a bit like the pirate skull emblem used for the movie!
This is me after the pirate makeover. I guess you wont be able to recognise me so it seems like a good disguise! Pirate Yourself to a better face!
The last game is Battle Galleons. If you ask me this is really a game of luck. How it works is that you first choose a Captain (of course I chose Jack Sparrow) and you are to play three rounds of the game. In each player's territory there are three places where you can place your ship. You are to choose which place your ship will be for each of the three rounds as well as indicate where you want your ship to open cannon fire on. So that means you have 1 out of 3 chances to get a hit. Not sure if it is because of the Captain I chose but the first time I tried I got 3 hits and the enemy did not manage to hit me at all! Check out my score above: 3:0!
So there you have it, some of the best piraty games in town. Before I end off, I would just like to say “Catch Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides movie starting from 19th May 2011 and join the official Disney Studios Singapore &
