It's like the PC game I played as a child, but for smart phones. You aren't locked out of any features, and can play the entire game without taking surveys or downloading other random apps or buying garbage. Everyone else tries to over spam you with ads, while this developer has more respect for me which is exactly why I will be supporting them with the purchase of the newer version: Pirates & Traders Gold.
Lost my best game. Had close to 300000, captured and upgraded Spanish treasure ship, 2 parchment, all weapons, flute, native alliance, loaded with jems weapons and food with only 16 cannons on-board. Rear Admiral in Spanish and British territory. Was enjoying it alot but now have to start over. I will do some things differently and see how it goes. If that game could be recovered I will give 5 stars right away.
Good, but... I really like this game. If there was just a little more to it, I could say love. Its simple to understand and play. The interface is user friendly and easy to navigate. Upon initially installing, I stayed up all night playing. The issues I have: not enough play area, not enough diversity among the ports (seems like when one port gets mad at you, all the others do too), too much repetition in the "cut scenes'.
Almost immersive Overall, it was worth my time. It was easy to learn and there is a wide choice of difficulty. Music stops and starts. Would be nice if it was always in background. Buying from market needs to be more organized. Maybe have a list with the info inside each. Individual progress is nice. Could equipped items show in shadow? Just a thought.
Worth spiritual successor to Sid Meier's Pirates. This game is basically Sid Meier's Pirates, just watered down for mobile. It's very engaging, simple, and just great overall. Would recommend to all my friends; and although the hand to hand combat and overall content quantity needs work, this is hand down the best mobile game I've ever played. (P.S. make gold have more content and I'll buy 10 copies.)
Look people, before you answer the hype that this game is EXACTLY like Sid Meier's Pirates, it is not. The game is awesome, and I like it a lot, but before you download and then trash talk it read it's description carefully. It is a fun game, with lots of fun options. Absolutely loved it and when I have the chance will purchase the gold edition! Keep up the good work guys!
