Pirates and Traders (Android app) review

I really enjoyed writing Sharkbait's Revenge.  It really got me into the whole pirate thing which is why I love the Android app Pirates and Traders (there is a basic ad supported version for free or the Gold! version without ads and with game perks for a bargain £3.25)

This is a game set in the 17th century Caribbean with you as a swashbuckling captain of a ship.  As the title suggests, you will come across many other characters, mainly pirates and traders.  Being a pirate or a trader are also the main routes that you can take to making your fortune. 

Pirates and traders offers you tons of options.  First of all, there is an in depth character creation process where you choose your nationality, your traits and your ship.  Once you are on the  high seas, you can search them for other ships to plunder either solely for treasure or in the name of your country or you can sail from port to port looking for deals on the many commodities sold and keeping an ear out for any rumours of surpluses or shortages so that you can buy low and sell high.







The game does not stop there, however.  You can also take part in missions such as pirate hunting, delivering items or tryiong to smuggle contraband into certain ports.  There are also other story modules coming up.

There is always something to aim for.  You can upgrade your personal equipment and ship until you have a mighty floating fortress crewed by an elite army of sailors.

The gorgeous nautical graphics and stirring music really add to the adventerous feeling you get when you set out to explore the seas once more.

Pirates and Traders is an excellent game offering great strategy and RPG opportunities all in one.  How could you not resist its lure?





You can get the free, ad supported Pirates and Traders here.

  1. I do sometimes consider buying one of these new high-tech phones. Mine doesn't even send text messages any more. And it's broke.

    1. I guess it's time. New phones come with all kinds of wonderful apps such as these and the contracts probably cost as much.

  2. I really like the idea behind this game, but I only have an iPod touch. No Pirates and Traders for me.

    1. There's an android emulator for PC if you want to play it but if you have an iPod, you can enjoy gamebook adventures.

  6. Hi,I adore this game.Took my lumps from the get go while adapting yet now that I get it,it is a heck of a ton of fun.Hint: simply assault and catch a trade galleon then simply TRADE just gold and weapons.At that point once you have completely upgraded the trade galleon,go kick all treasure galleons.Good day.~Evelyn Cox.
