    "Hard to starboard, boy, b'fore we oughta throw thy corpse o'erboard!"

    Choice of Games is a developer highly specialized in this kind of text-based multiple-choice games. If you remember those "Lone Wolf" books back in the late 80s, you can get the idea.

    When making choices, your skills will grow or decrease to reflect the changes. Any option you take can have either ill or good consequences that you'll have to accept. The first choices you make will define your character and his stats. Choose wisely. You've to be consistent and choose according to the role you chose. Once you end your story, whether sunk or alive, or if you decide to restart it, you'll be able to take a different path with an absolutely different character. We can say that the clever use of choices and variables implies a nearly unlimited replayability.

    So, once you finish the first questions, you'll have a particular status based on your skills. Then, you can tap on "Begin the Adventure" in order to start the real story and go on reading every chapter. This one tells specifically the story of a young boy throughout an epic journey across the seven seas within a loathsome war. We haven't read any scene non child friendly, though the rhetorical language and the eighteenth century knowledge can make this tale not suited for kids. To a greater or lesser degree, this story is inspired by Robinson's and Salgari's books along that Master and Commander air.

    Story is very long, but we miss, however, illustrations. We know that it would make the app more expensive to develop and therefore beyond the current "free with ads" formula. By the way, ads are absolutely non-intrusive, placed at the upper part of the screen. As we've already said, Choice of Games is highly specialized in this kind of games, so if you enjoyed this one and want to try others, be sure to check them out.

    A swashbuckling naval adventure, in the spirit of C. S. Forester's Hornblower or Patrick O'Brian's Aubrey/Maturin books, with a dash of Jane Austen. Choice of Broadsides is a free text-based game of multiple choice.
