Originally released as part of Zeebo Family Pack, Long John Silver is a tile-match puzzle game with a pirate theme. Players have to combine 3 tiles by switching them two by two. A small man is shown moving away from an "X" marking the spot of a treasure, while approaching a skull and bones mark. As tiles are combined, the man approaches the X; the more points the player scores, the closer the man gets to the X. The longer the player takes to make a new combination, the farther the man moves away from the X. When the man arrives at the X, the player advances a level and the number of different tiles increase; at first, there will be 5 kinds of tiles (gold coins, skulls, treasure chests, swords and rudders), then 6, 7 and so on. Starting in the second level, when a combination is done a diamond tile appears, which can't be combined with any other tile. To be removed, tiles below it must be combined so it can fall down. When it falls through the lower edge of the screen, bonus points are awarded.

Players can select an avatar when creating a profile. The game includes a global, cross platform high-score ranking that allows the player to share his/her top scores and compete for the highest score possible against other players. [source:mobygames]
