The game spans multiple acts, with each act consisting of five or six missions. These missions come in many varieties, such as destroy an X amount of ships, race around the harbor in X amount of time, collect four treasure chests, etc.

A multiplayer mode is included which offers several variants of play, such as "Kingdom Come" and "Free For All".

There are many secrets to be unlocked, such as additional weapons, boats, multiplayer levels, multiplayer game modes, and more.
