5 best free pirate games for Android - June 2013
You can play as the dread pirate Roberts or any other fictional pirate you want creating him or her. You choose a few traits (gender, nationality) and assign 10 points to the three main abilities: physical prowess, wits and social aptitude. Choose your ship and answer a few questions to you unveil your background and round up your stats and skills. You can start the game thereon.
Pirates and traders ain't an easy game, or at least you can bet it isn't a casual game. It's a complex RPG for a mobile game, with many skills, grades and combinations, both for characters and seafare (of course, simpler than pen and paper RPGs). Map is full of places to go and stuff to be done, and possibilities seem nearly endless. Hardcore old school gamers will definitely fall in love with this game, even though it hasn't spectacular cannon battles and boardings (it's all about Math in the end). In fact, it has no animations at all, but it does have somehow historical rigor.
Therefore, Pirates and Traders will only be enjoyed by a minority of nerd players, but those who do, will do it for weeks...or till steam age begins. This complete version helps the developer and is free of ads.
- RPG System with 3 Aptitudes and 20+ skills
- Sail the Caribbean in any of 20 different historical ships
- Customize your ship with more than 20 different improvements

THE BEST $4 IN MY LIFE
Awesome game. if you like Pirates! You might love this too
Love it! Can't seem to put the game down. Would be great if the devs could add more content to it. Looking forward to more adventures!
This is an exceptional game. Really, quite outstanding. Two things however, that detract from this otherwise infinitely replayable game are that  once you have the trade routes figured out, the game becomes incredibly easy, and  with complete upgrades, the ships don't have any storage space to speak of. This makes it unfeasible to upgrade your ship fully.
Play it all the time
Very good game, quite addictive. Several key parameters to keep track of. Like the new update introducing a few special items. If you are like me and want the best sword with the best cloth, astrobale, gun and of course Manilla galleon, you are in for quite a few hours ;-) It is basically like a good old game I used to play back on windows 98, Pavillon noir
