Embargo - Pirates

By Zen Yes

Open iTunes to buy and download apps.


Dominate the open seas during the Age of Sail. Engage in historic naval battles with famous commanders and admirals commanding fleets of periodic era ships. Defeat Lord Nelson at Trafalgar, capture the French Corsair Robert Surouf, break the British Embargo of 1812.

Embargo is a 3D naval combat game designed exclusively for the iPhone/iPod Touch. Take command of periodic era ships as you engage 24 historical opponents in epic naval battles during the late 18th and early 19th century. With immersive gameplay and special effects (cannon smoke, burning fires, smoke trails, flying debris, water splashes etc), and a fully licensed soundtrack, you'll swear that you can almost taste the sea and smell the gunpowder.

You'll need to master the winds and devise cunning naval strategies to outwit historic opponents. Enemy ships will maneuver and weave with grace, and if you let your guard down for a moment, you'll find yourself surrounded by enemy ships, iron cannons blasting away at you. Slugging away full broadside, although messy, may work against lone opponents, but when faced with a fleet of enemy ships, you'd better revise your tactics. Only the ablest navigators will be victorious.

"A ship in harbor is safe - but that is not what ships were built for."
"There's Pirates on the starboard bow!!!"

What's New in Version 1.1

Added Arcade mode (instant action against 3 ships). Reduced game difficulty. Increased plunder. Added font with accented characters (European languages).

Developers, please read this!!

I see lots of potential, but before I can rate this 5 star, some improvements need to be made. First off; this game is waaaaay too hard, you need to make it so that you can actually beat the first level on easy mode. Second, you gotta make sound effects for not just the guns firing, but different ones for the cannonballs hitting the water, and the ship. More visual effects for those two things are needed too, it's very hard to tell what your cannonballs have hit when they just disappear silently. That's about it for suggestions from me.

Great game

Ok first of all the gameplay is great. It is kinda hard but I could use a challenge, most iOS games are too easy. The ships are neat and the cinematic view is awesome. And to everyone who says this is too hard MAN UP and shoot something that's what those big cannons are for.

Good game way too hard

Whoever made this game listen carefully. This game has aalllloooottttt of potential, very good graphics and gameplay. But you still need to tone down the difficulty alloottt. Besides that the game is AWESOME!!!! ONCE U TONE DOWN THE DIFFICULTY U HAVE A 5 STAR RATING AWAITING U. =)
