Like Being Back In the 80's! This was the first computer game I ever played (1985) and this works almost exactly like the Apple IIc version. The only difference is, that in the original version, you could fire 1 full volley of your cannons and then "run away" successfully almost instantly. Anyone who writes a complaint about this game, is someone who cannot appreciate the simplicity and nostalgia of the greatest decade in the 20th century.

The game is fun enough, but you can't say you haven't tweaked it. I've had it downloaded for about two years now and the original was spot on to the game I played on an Apple IIe in the 80s. I could build up to 100s of guns, play well into the 1900s and score massively. I can still score decently well, but the imbalance of attacking ships to my limited ability to obtain guns is not a representation of the original game.

I wanted a game that resembled trade winds and for the most part, it does. However, the pirate fleet end up growing while you don't have many options to repair and build your guns to stay alive in the game. If they would make it so you have better options for obtaining cannons, the game would actually be fun instead of irritating.
