Description

The year is 1671. After a lifetime of building your fortune on countless expeditions across the Spanish Main, the crown jewel lies before you: Panama... the largest and richest city in the New World! Today, you will risk all your wealth and prestige in a bold effort to seize your rightful place in history. Nestled out of sight in nearby coastal waters is a fleet of captured pirate raiders awaiting your order to attack. At your side, hundreds of brave buccaneers. All is ready. Soon the fabled treasures of the Spanish Empire shall be yours!
... And so the story unfolds against a backdrop of history, adventure and intrigue. You play the leading role as a privateer captain, criss-crossing the Caribbean Sea, slipping into harbor towns as needs require and opportunities allow, but always relishing your return to the exhilarating freedom of the open seas!
Pirates! weaves the excitement of arcade-style action, the decision-making challenge of simulation, and the interactive storyline of text adventures into one magnificently rich and satisfying game.
PIRATES! features include:
- ship battles, land conquests, fencing and sailing
- political maneuvering, negotiating and forging alliances
