Woody Two-Legs, the least infamous pirate, has finally got his hands on some treasure. He sets off to bury it on a remote island, but it quickly turns out to belong to the undead pirate Mr. Jones and his minions. In five missions Woody has to avert the attempts to retrieve the treasure. The game is played from an almost top-down view and the player controls Woody's ship. It can be steered around quickly and cannons can be fired from both sides. In each mission he has to defend the island with treasure against waves of enemy ships approaching from all sides. When they are near the island they will steal a part of the treasure and attempt to get away. This depletes a treasure meter in the top left corner. The player has to destroy them before they reach the island or take them out when they return with the stolen loot. The game is lost when all treasure is stolen.
The basic cannons are the main means of attack. There is an unlimited amount of cannon balls, but it takes some time to reload them. The ship can be damaged and destroyed, but then it immediately respawns and there is an unlimited amount of lives; the focus is on keeping the treasure meter full. Each island introduces new opponents and after the twentieth wave a boss appears. Destroyed ships often leave behind extras, in four varieties: Good Box, Bad Box, Random Box, and Money Box. The latter contains the loot taken by enemy ships. Players need to collect the good boxes and avoid the bad ones. Random contains a mixture of both and picking them up is a risk. When they are left unattended, they sink and disappear. Useful power-ups restore hit points, provide extra speed or slow down opponents, grant extra points, or freeze enemies. Bad ones slow you down, make enemies more aggressive, freeze the ship, or reverse the controls. There are also modifiers for your weapons, turning them into fire or blue balls. Many also contain a superweapon that can be equipped. These are mines or large web to defend the island, a vortex that immediately sinks a ship, and dolphins that are shot as homing missiles.
Next to the main Story mode each unlocked level can be played individually. Initially there are two difficulty levels (Easy and Medium), but Hard and Nightmare can be unlocked later on. The game has an online global leaderboard.
