Ikibago: The Caribbean Jewel Ikibago: The Caribbean Jewel is a color-matching game with a pirate theme. On the central window, lots of multi-colored barrels bob down the sea towards the right side of the screen, where an arrow is waiting to collect them. The main objective is to arrange columns of kegs by color, dragging and dropping them before they reach the arrow. At least three barrels of the same color must be aligned on the column before hitting the right side, otherwise the player loses a life.

There are boss battles, where rival buccaneers try to destroy the barrels with cannons, or send their henchmen to dance on the kegs locking them in place.

Special barrels appear on some levels. Unchained kegs can't be moved until they are unlocked with keys attached to other barrels. Ring barrels turn the whole column to gold.

The goal of each level is displayed at the start of each round, and usually is to collect a number of stocks (columns with three barrels) or superstocks (five barrels columns). Depending on the score, at the end of each stage the game unlocks one of the six extra modes. They are gameplay variations, with certain aspects removed or added to the story mode. For example, the classic mode has a series of continuous levels, and the endless mode has infinite lives. [source:mobygames]
