What's New in Version 1.1.2
Minor bug fixes
Great game, a few bugs
This is definitely worthy of Sid's name, but it still has a few bugs. I've also searched the Internet in regards to this game and it a that it does not exist for the iPhone... Rather strange since it's in the App Store. Long story short, don't expect to find a whole lot that deals with the iPhone version. As for the bugs, it's small stuff (like the flags on the world map not being positioned properly); nothing that's game-stopping. At least nothing I've found so far (and I'm pretty much at the end). Also, the game-saving thing isn't real; you can't save in port. The other thing I'd like to see fixed is bombardment and going ashore. I know these are a lot more extensive activities on the computer version; what gives?! Also along that line is the way treasure maps are handled. I've only had any luck using one piece once. All other times the location was impossible to determine without using the track feature. It's also kind of silly not to have the world map remember the names of settlements, etc when YOU'VE BEEN TO THEM!
That said, for $.99, it's a steal. But I don't think I'd spend $3 on it. I'd rather save it for the PC version.
Good even with bugs
I played this game on the computer back in high school. This game is almost identical to the PC version back then. Other than a few nice additions like tracking which I love.
Overall still a fun game that requires strategy, prioritization and patience. It does have some bugs however, one being that when I rescue a family member the game freezes up. I tried manually closing the app completely and reopening. Somehow I ended up saving a second family member. Closed the app again thinking it was a glitch and then I saved a third family member. I was able to get the whole family in a matter of 5 minutes. Also, occasional app crashes, some sluggishness during the game that affected the outcome of the sword fight.
Still a good game, fun. Wish it had a few new things from the game I played so many years ago but don't regret buying it.
3 Stars Until Stupid Bugs Fixed.
When in ship battles, changing your cannon ball types makes your ship turn that direction. That's stupid and lazy development. Also, dancing is bugged up as well. Swordplay is often not responsive or efficient for screen-swipe action. 5 Stars coming your way when you decide we're important to look over these issues for your fans and customers, and actually fix these issues you knew were there all along.
*It would be impossible to beta test this game and not know of these simple bugs upon release. From the looks of it, you just ignored them from the start, and continue to do so. 3 Stars is probably more than you deserve because of this.
