What's New in Version 1.2.0
Addresses stability issues with iOS 8
This has always been an awesome game, ever since I played as a teen on PC.
Having said that, two things on this mobile version would make me raise my review to five stars:
Auto sail would be a nice feature if it were map-based instead of alphabetical. The cards are too close together and new players don't necessarily know which port is which just by the name. Also improve it by making auto sail real-time so that if you want to change course on the way you can (ie to attack a ship you didn't expect).
Second, the ball dancing game is horrible. In the original Pirates, the girl's hands would point one way and you would simply go that way with the controller. Boring, but ok. In this version, it's a constant reflex war, and a constant consciousness war to actually care about the jerk girl who cares about these collapsing circles ;(
If you fix these two items, auto sail and ball dancing, I'll raise to five stars.
Having said all that, this game is awesome! I've always loved it and always will :)
It's Worth it!
Especially considering the new update. Although others may be having trouble with it, previously I was unable to play this game offline. However, with the new update, the game performs well.
As for actual gameplay, if you like blowing up ships, the satisfaction of capturing an amazing one, and claiming another city in the name of your nation, then this is the game for you.
There's a story, but you don't even have to complete it. You can do whatever you want as a pirate, though you can get promoted by the four nations under the right circumstances, which is always satisfying.
It's a top-notch game, and it's a shame that not many have heard of it.
Runs too fast on new iPads (Air)
Despite the iOS 8 update, they did nothing to fix the speed issues on newer devices. The game runs far faster than intended on the iPad Air (1) or newer devices. This makes it more difficult than it should be to play, especially because the game has a time component were your crew consumes food and certain things about the world changes as time advances (plus your character eventually dies from aging). Time moves faster than the rate at which you can reasonably accomplish things.
