Game Overview:

This game is a decent attempt at trying to recreate the life and time of the pirates. The game is somewhat like the game of Lords of the Realm II in the sense that the game has two main screens that all the game takes place in. An overworld map and the ship to ship attack scenes. There is no resource gathering, you just barter with various riches like spices, silk, cannons, and so fourth. You are a dedicate corsair to your kingdom's heir, and you will serve your kingdom well (otherwise, you'll be dead). You will go around to various cities accomplishing various tasks of the governors in each city asking you to do a task. If you succeed you will become richer and more famous while also gaining more interest in your kingdom's eyes. You will gain power, get more ships, get more of everything and eventually carry out all the missions. All the combat is in real time and can occur in two different locations. You can wage war on seas with cannons from the ships, or you can drop bridges and fight men against men in all out ship brawls.
