2010 {{Xbox 360}} [[XboxLiveArcade Arcade]] game by Creator/HalfbrickStudios that combines both quick platforming and block puzzles. The cast consists of skeleton creatures known as [[DemBones "Raskulls"]] who must retrieve some [[{{Macguffin}} "Shiny Stones"]] from a Rat Pirate group called the [[YouDirtyRat Pirats]]... That's pretty much the whole plot.
