Review Pirate Kings
Plunder your friends and become the true pirate king
Author: Vlad Popa
Date: 21 Oct 2014, tested on Samsung Galaxy Note 3 Neo
Highly addictive, quality animation
Long downtime when all spins are used up for free users
Pirate Kings for Android is a multiplayer game, where you’re a mighty pirate with a quest to conquer the seven seas and become the king of the pirates. And in what way should a pirate do that? By plundering your friends or other fellow pirates of their resources and spend them as you please in order to build your island empire. But they won’t take kindly to that and they will surely want revenge. You need to build your island with a sturdy defense and repel your attackers in order to protect your precious booty.
The game’s main feature is the wheel of fortune that will decide if you’re meant for glory. The controls are easy as you press a button for the wheel to start spinning and based on your luck you will earn gold, the opportunity to Attack another pirate’s island where you will test your cannon on your victim by taping on their structures followed by a reward. The wheel allows you to add up to three shields on your island to protect you from other pirate. When the Steal option rolls you want to find the cash king by taping one of three islands presented to you by the game. Even if you don’t find the cash king you’ll still be rewarded with a substantial sum. There is a limited number of spins on the wheel with a fairly big cool-down. You can always take the not-so-pirate way and purchase more spins. But remember, real pirates take, they do not “buy”.
After all that swashbuckling you’ll want to spend your loot on the wide range of islands, items, upgrades and more. This will surely keep users yearning for more and will ensure their return to the seas for more booty.
Overall Pirate Kings is a catchy game that puts you in a 3D real-time world and lets you pick custom pirate avatars and flags. A personal dislike is the modern looking items that are unlocked as you progress that break away from the pirate theme.
