Pineapple Smash Crew is a shoot-em-up game that was first released in 2012. In the game, players get to control a group of mercenaries who must locate their ship. Throughout the game, players get to meet different enemies that must be defeated in order to move to different locations. Some of the enemies in the game include monsters, robots, and aliens. The player has a top view of the locations where they can easily see the enemies and the mercenaries. The mercenaries gain experience and level up as they kill the enemies. There are different types of weapons to use when fighting. Some of them include mines, lasers, and grenades, which can be upgraded as well.
Players get to choose a ship to search before starting the mission. Missions are given in random. As the player progresses, the game gets hard as the enemies are more difficult to beat. There are also boss levels wherein players must fight in an arena. The game was inspired by different classic computer games, such as Worms, Chaos Engine, and Alien Breed. The game is only available in single-player mode. When going into missions, players must also locate the computer room in each ship boarded in order to find the location of their mothership.
