Please help me recall an old arcade game I played as a kid.

The only things I can remember are:

- You played as a pirate and the game revolved around fencing.

- It was at least two player co-operative against many computer controlled enemies.

- Played like a typical side scrolling beat-em-up except that there was a button to change which direction you were facing. I assume this was to allow you to back away from an enemy while still pointing your sword at him.

- I played this at Chuck E. Cheese's around 1990-ish.

Thanks in advance for any help, this has been stumping me for quite a while now!

I remember a version of this for the old Apple ][, but am not sure if there was an arcade version.

...looking for links about this game, coming up empty...

Hey, leave me out of this.

(Apologies for being OT, but the question looks pretty answered.)

Dr. Wu: I thought the same thing! (And then re-read the description, and realised it probably wasn't (not side-scrolling, for a start.))

But if you're interested, here's a screenshot, from a site with Apple ][e emulators and ROMs. (Your legality may vary.)

I played through this game last night and discovered that the second or third level features...


So is this game the earliest reference to pirates vs ninja's?

That reminds me, I registered when I was drunk and haven't really figured out what I am going to do with it.
