If you’ve ever played Pang, you will understand the basics of Pirate Pop Plus. In an enclosed box you run around on a 2D plane launching an anchor chain and popping bouncing bubbles in an arcade style score attack manner. The biggest differentiator in this spin of the formula is the anti gravity mechanic. As gravity shifts, so does the physics and it provides a surprising opportunity for extra depth and strategy.

Another round of footage has been posted for Pirate Pop Plus, which launches on Thursday on Wii U and New 3DS. View the latest gameplay below.

Footage has emerged showing the Wii U version of Pirate Pop Plus. See some gameplay of the Hyper Mode below.

Pirate Pop Plus will launch for Wii U and New 3DS on October 20, 13AM Games announced today. The game will cost $4.99, and cross-buy will be supported. If you purchase one version, you’ll get the other at no extra cost.

Pirate Pop Plus is an 8-bit action game with Game Boy-era graphics. It’ll offer a “touch of Buster Bros (Pang Adventures), a bevy of weapons and power ups, and gravity-altering mechanics”. The main mechanic involves building chains and combos to achieve high scores while battling the Bubble Pirate and having to work through gravity that can turn you upside down or side to side at a moment’s notice.
