Deadstorm Pirates 4D+ SD is a highly interactive, simulation, shooting style arcade game machine from Namco. Enclosed in a booth, up to 4-players can immerse themselves in the game which features 3D graphics as well as wind, bubbles and motion effects to simulate a real-life, swashbuckling adventure. Players take on the role of a pirate and must defeat their enemies with weapons, including machine guns and cannons.
The game can be played by up to 4 players cooperatively. When the game is being played with multiple players, shooting at the same target together produces a more powerful shot. In the center of the control panel is a replica helm of a ship which is used to change the direction of your ship during certain sections of game play.
There are 5 stages to play through each with a variety of unique features, with the player able to select which stage they would like to play. The first four stages, "Stormy Sea", "Mountain Rapids", "Forbidden Cave" and "Giant Whirlpool" can be played in any order.
