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 free version is ad-supported and allows to buy gold to make things faster.
- 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

You guys should team up with choice of people
But wish there was a more profitable way of playing the game then being a gem trader between tortuga la habana and san Augustin
I liked it so so much! I think i will always be playing it! Guys plz add the feature to take over large ports like la havana, port royal, trinidad. It may be a call for help from the country i buyed the letter of marque.....
Brilliant game few bad points. Only one ship available for your fleet so trying to take over large places such as port royal is almost impossible even with an elite team of 400+ crew members. But all in all best game on market and I'm only playing the fre

It is truely a great game but i think that it could have a retired campaign or something like you could make a large company and become even richer. And to have several ships as back up
