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.
