A naval RTS
Pirates! is a real time strategy game in where you manage resources at lighting fast speed to raise a fleet of dreadful pirate ships to bomb and take over neutral and enemy bastions, towns and fortresses.
Gameplay is as easy as tapping on a town to upgrade it or tapping on the the "sea lane" you want to "launch" a ship. Ships attack everything they find in their paths. Town generate a certain amount of gold per second, and once you lost any town in your home island, you lost.
Graphics are far above average to similar games, and water effects and sound effects are great. Pity there isn't weather or wind, lost chance there. Likewise, any kind of storyline, let alone cutscenes, comic-like drawings or anything to add some drama to the ka-boom ka-boom battles would have been great.
Anyway, a very interesting and enjoyable game recommended for everyone.

Misc. small tweaks
Addictive, fun game. I dinged one star for not integrating with Play Games. I jump between devices and wish my progress synced automatically, which it currently doesn't.
Simple game but fun
Where it leaps so drastically in difficulty that it ruins the enjoyment. A build up to a challenge is nice but this is insane, and denies satisfaction of completing the game
Time flies by.
I was enjoying the game up until the 3rd island where the enemy seemingly has double time and ship spawns from the start, also the enemy ai always knows the best line to take on course which means strategy is pointless and it's really about survival. For the price it's worth a look and will keep you busy for a while but due to the cheap opponent ai tactics i uninstalled as it takes away any fun.
I play this all the time. Now if I could find a space game with same basic set up.
Generally fun-ish. But indestructible enemy ships sort of ruin the game. I guess its a bug because it sort of knocks the fun right off and makes the game pointless. Otherwise would be 4 stars
