"Seriously, this is a very cool game!"

Face off against the fearsome Red Hand privateers in thrilling head-to-head pirate battles on the high sea! Capture towns and other structures to strengthen your defense and increase your gold supply. Capture your enemy's base to win, but make sure you are also defending your own base! 75 campaign levels plus randomly generated maps in skirmish mode!

Fast paced gameplay with RTS and lane defense tactics without heavy resource management or the need to micro-manage units. Set an initial course forward, then units will attack and capture on their way.

Command your fleet of pirate ships as you send them to intercept the enemy pirates or lay siege to land targets. Send an armada of Brigantines or save your gold for a massive Ship of the Line!

Towns, guard towers, shipyards, lighthouses, mystical obelisks, and more can all be captured. Structures all have a unique purpose and will supply you with gold, attack your enemy, buff up you ships, allow you to launch more ships, etc.

Upgrade towns to increase gold production. Upgrade guard towers to increase their firepower and strengthen your defenses.

Will you aggressively capture towns to loot their gold or invest in the towns you have to increase their gold production? Wage a purely pirate ship battle or strengthen your defenses with upgraded guard towers? Find the right RTS strategy to beat each level.

Combat the enemy in the tropical Caribbean then follow them into Hades in the River Styx world. And the Open Sea and Chaos Ocean worlds have the largest levels of all

Set the game to be as easy or as difficult as you want. Set the AI to adjust to your skill or set it to play a completely even/fair match every time. Pirates of all strategy skill levels should be satisfied

At any time you can speed up or slow down time to play at your own pace. Allow yourself more time to prepare your strategy or speed up your opponent's demise!

Two skirmish modes provide an infinite number of randomly generated maps

Fun, but some things frustrate me. 1. The final level is unwinnable except on Easy. It doesn't need to be impossible to be fun and challenging. 2. Playing skirmish maps in Normal mode starts me on the same map 80% of the time. 3. Recently, it started hiding the colors of items in Captured mode. I have to guess about the difficulty so that i can see who owns what and then restart the level if necessary. It's definitely a good game, but sometimes I just don't want to deal with its problems.

The concept is original and the gameplay starts out fun, but the difficulty scaling is poorly implemented. Rather than a smarter enemy, you face an enemy whose resources accumulate several times faster than yours. Recent changes apparently make your opponents ships stronger than yours as well, which eliminates any chance of a balanced strategy.

Glad you enjoy the game! There are 75 campaign maps and if you play the skirmish mode the maps are randomly generated for an infinite number of possible maps. We hope that will satisfy your desire for more maps to play.
