Trirates

Trirates is a three player twin-stick shooter, where the key objective is to survive for as long as possible while fending off hordes of angry crabs. To achieve this you must work with your fellow robo-pirates to collect coloured gems that will appear at random around the level. These gems, when dropped off in the treasure chest in the middle of the level, will give you power-ups such as an increased fire-rate, damage and even bullet size. Each robo-pirate has their own colour (red, yellow and blue) and will have to combine their colours to collect the gems. For example, the purple gem will only move when the Red and Blue pirates are carrying it together. Carrying gems slows down the player, so you must work as a team to both pick gems up, as well as fend off the crabs.

Shoot with the right stick and move with the left. To move a gem, two pirates will have to carry it at the same time. However, they must be the correct colours that, when combined, match the colour of the gem. For example, the purple gem will only move when the Red and Blue pirates' radii are overlapping the gem.


Orange Gem = Bullet Damage Increase

Purple Gem = Bullet Size Increase

Green Gem = Rate of Fire Increase


Each power-up will also increase player speeds
