Bailando (Dancin') Tips
When dancing there are some simple rules the game obeys unless you are playing on Swashbuckler. All moves come in either a series of two or four. Here are the patterns:
Right Left Right Left Right Left
Right turn right Right turn right, repeat
Forward turn left Forward turn left, repeat
Back turn right Back turn right, repeat
Forward Back Left Left, Back Forward Right Right.
Forward Left, Back Right, Forward Left, Back Right.
On Swashbuckler the dancing moves are completely random. Also, on Rogue, the song will repeat itself after one time through unless you completely max out the daughter's heart, any time that happens the next move is the last, you'll know because you will stop zooming in and the heart will beat extremely rapidly.
When choosing ammo type select the chain balls. Then, directly after firing, click round balls and you will fire both of these ammo types in the same shot.
Easy sea battles
When battling other ships, get in front of them. Have them chase you, and when your guns are fully loaded, turn, fire, and straighten again. Repeat this until you wish to board or their sail falls and they surrender. It is best done when you use grape shot or chain shot.
Attacking and boarding a smuggler's vessel usually yields a specialist (Carpenter, Sail maker, etc.)
To win in a sword fight go for speed (Rapier and special swords). When your opponent goes for attack move PRESS 4. Your speed should beat your nearly all the time. Draw the remainder. Your opponent has no chance to counter.
