Description

Jack the Sharpshooter is a pirate living quietly when his mentor, Flash Henry, contacts him in secret for giving him a mysterious box. But after trying learning why the old man is asking for keeping it by visiting Melinda the Fortuneteller, the pirate is finding himself haunted by a spirit, talking to others and soon to be jailed, according to Melinda. All because of that box. What will be Jack's Fate? Will he find a way to get rid of the spirit? Or will he be haunted for the rest of his life?

Pirateville is an hidden object game, with minigames. In a certain amount of time, you have to find items whose names or silhouettes are given in a list. When it's done, you have to click on them in order to making progress. If you're stuck, you can ask for an hint/tip. That system for helping you is available for all minigames: "spot the differences", where you're given two pictures and you have to find the differences by clicking on them, "decipher the message", by switching letters, "reconstitute the picture", "find the pairs", etc..
