A new article in Apple's games section details YoHoHo! Puzzle Pirates, the 2D Massively Multiplayer Online RPG/Puzzle game. Apple's recent release of a Java 1.4.2 update helped work out the last of the kinks with this Java-based title for Panther 10.3 users.

Puzzle Pirates is an online game which centers on solving puzzles to gain a fortune and advance with your friends. Here's a clip from Apple's article in "pirate-speak:"

What ye really wants to do, though, is stop bein’ a landlubber and join a ship’s crew. There ye’ll be put to work pumpin’ out bilge water or fixin’ up holes in the hull, all for a few pieces o’ eight, which be Puzzle Pirates’ money. Aye, those tasks be puzzles, as are the swordfights that happen when one vessel attacks another and come close enough for hand-to-hand fightin’. If ye win, ye plunder the other crew’s booty. Not all ships be equal, though, so don’t go ‘round pickin’ fights with just anyone.
If you're curious about Puzzle Pirates, the Apple article also lists some tips and tricks, as well as a Pirate glossary to help you get by. Head over now to give the article a read.
