Wonderful game, but the amount of wasted potential makes my cry every time I play it. One of the rare games that focus on writing and gameplay, and are not a cashgrab by any means. I wish the dev would continue the project in the current format - Pirates and Traders 2, along with it's new UI feels cheaper and waaaaay less polished than 1, with a lot of mechanics being replaced for no reason, UI being downgraded etc. Also, it needs more content and bug fixes.

Jumped right in and loved it. At first it's hard to get a good grasp on the game but the hints really do help and I still suck at playing but it's really fun and feels like you can do anything you want. Controls are simple and everything is easy to follow along whenever you enter a port. I love the gameplay and attacking ships can seem hard or weird but it's really fun with the music and being able to decide what you want to do.

Took me a while to get the hang of this, but once i did i enjoyed it. Even ended up being forced to retire on one game. if you're not trying to be a war monger and just want money, you can "distance" yourself from other ships. if you attack you will have fewer ports you can visit. (can be pardoned though some times.) Also don't buy weapons, and until you get more cunning, don't buy jewels. More likely to get arrested. Enjoy!
