    I played the original, loved it, i played the beta of 2, it needs work and is unfinished but i look forward to playing it when it's finished. BOUGHT AND PAID FOR GOLD, BECAUSE I DON'T LIKE ADS. Only to find that all of the native missions are broken, can't finish any of them.... I could on the free version that has a ton of ads.... I thought i was getting the same exact game minus ads.... Please fix this before I have to go through Google to get my money back

    Flawed but fun and charming game. You can tell so much love has gone into its development, and I've loved it for years. It's just so much fun to pick up and play. It's really addictive. There's so much to this game. The fighting, the trading, all the little storylines. It's not perfect by any means but it's a really fun experience if you're just looking for a cool mobile game.

    Ive had countless good experiences with this game and they keep coming with as old as this game is now its still just as good as its always been! I will always play this and i hope to become a great developer just like you. Pirates and traders is well worth it!

    Perfect game, except the loan system. 5% interest per month is insane and it makes it nearly impossible to ever pay off even a 10k loan

    Gets boring after a while. There's no story, just get hold. Also the rankings given to you by governments don't mean much. It's basically a watered down Sid Miers Pirates. Also it's impossible to sack a city.

    Ok, first... I'm reinstalling the game because I miss it. There are three things you need to know. 1. Does not drain battery. 2. Can be played in short bursts or have long sessions too. 3. Has RPG elements to spice up all the grinding. For the mobile phone as a gaming platform, this is one of the most perfect games out there.

    I had 12 skill points and i started to put it on strength and it reached 50% then when i put 1 more skill point it resets it to lvl 1. Please developers, fix this issue because once in every 10 play throughs i get a nice warship and luck is going with me and when the game does that it really demoralize me. Cheers

    Good game. But it could be great. Been playing for a while. Over and over on iron mode. Updates dont do anything. All bug fixes. Why not transfer the content from Pirates and Traders 2 to GOLD? Id like to have a fleet of ships. I want to plunder towns. Heck I want to build my own town.

  29. shawn Payne-avatar

    This game looks like Sid Meier's classic Pirates! ...but is is not. This game lacks the fighting action that made that game great. The ship to ship fighting and the swordfight sequences are simplified to a few button pushes that left me unsatisfied. Playing this game is like returning to a past love who has grown mean and ugly...(feeling sad)

  30. Phoochie-avatar



    I feel the game is a great way to enjoy my free time. Its easy to play and the story can be interesting. I feel there is content in Pirates and Traders 2 that i wish was incorporated in to this paid version. Some of those things was the imagery used for clothing, customizing the look of your pirate with facial hair, head and face. Little features like customization make that much better for.

    The only real gripe I have is there is almost no way to get out of debt it seems. I took a small bank loan and now cant catch up! Also, I wished I could have more than one ship in my party to use or sell.

  32. Johnathan Shelman-avatar

    It's a challenging game and you need luck and skill to progress well. My only complaint is that dock boats are expensive and you could just take most of them thus making it pointless. Great buy.

  33. Jake Jensen-avatar

    Jake Jensen


    Super fun and addictive when working properly. However on 2 separate occasions my save got "corrupted" and my game wouldn't open, causing me to lose all my character data and more importantly, the ship I had fought so hard to "requisition". I won't play if every time I progress I have to restart due to software problems.

  34. Chris Campbell-avatar

    Chris Campbell


    Simple but surprisingly deep gameplay. Every choice - to attack or distance self, to trade in port A or risk time and food travelling to port B for potentially more money, to align with or attack certain nation's ships, etc - matter in this game. If you like history and/or are fascinated by the Golden Age of Piracy, this one's a winner.

  35. Thanh Chung Vu-avatar

    Thanh Chung Vu


    Fun. Strategy. But confusing I have no complaints about the story or the controls. It is engaging, fun and addicting. The only thing I have problem with is crew level when attacking town. There is no information about what is your crew level or natives level compare to the defend side except numbers and neither is what the info about their leaders.

  36. El Viajo-avatar

    El Viajo


    Good game What is the point of Portugal though? Peeps complaining about going bankrupt must be noobs. Buy gems north of Cuba, sell them in Havana. Mechanics are a bit off; gems are the only product worth trading past the first few months. Found an exploit where after sacking a town so that only the merchant's tab is available (plunder function), you can leave & come back for the next few turns before the town recovers. While the plunder function is still active, the town will buy goods at inflated prices Gets a bit pointless after gaining the Manilla Galleon: end game is weak if you're not IronMan; almost impossible if you are. No point in having more than 300k. Really looking forward to PT2 though. Will defs buy

  37. Azalea-avatar



    Loved this game enough to pay for it! This is the only game I've found like that and it us incredibly enjoyable. I've played through several times and it never gets old. Very relaxing and great way to spend time

    This game is pretty difficult and that's why I've enjoyed it so much. I've had my character's killed, or hung, whatever, it's always because I took a chance instead of playing it safe. Like any form of gambling, sometimes you win, sometimes you lose. I'm not giving up.

  39. Jeff Heger-avatar

    I used to play this game years ago my desktop I purchased the mobile app a year or two ago but stop playing it after a few issues. Unfortunately, I don't recall what those issues were. So, I start playing it again and found some inconsistencies right off the bat including starting off every single ship I would run across would be fully staffed galleon or warship. Hence, it made it difficult to start the pirate's life if all you can do flee or surrender. In my last game, however, I did manage to go to battle with a ship of similar strength. After boarding I was winning the fight with 78 men to 8. I expected when I hit the fight button again I would win, but the message stated i manage to kill seven of their sailors. The next sentence however stated that my sailors weary of the fight surrendered. What? There is nothing more frustrating than playing a game that has bugs or a very bad sense of humor.

    Love it, i always get my Manila Galleon, do the free Honduras, but can NEVER find crown of Moctezuma quest. Is it only in certain ports it can pop up at?

  41. Erin Williams-avatar

    Reading some of other players comments on here, it would be great if you can add a fleet option. Would be a lot of fun to expand to more then one ship at a time, and perhaps options to add upgrades to different crew members, training etc. But a fantastic little game, well worth buying pirates gold. I recommend it. Can you please add a in-game instuctions option for OFFLINE

  42. Tim Rattenbury-avatar

    This game is that good that I am actually writing my first ever review! Game play is perfect story lines are perfect and you can pretty much do what ever you want! Can't wait for some updates more storyline more ships and more fun!!!

  43. Kevin Maiuri-avatar

    A decent game but very inaccurate in some parts. For example I've done the research and privateers working for a country at war did not keep their notoriety with that country's enemies once the war was over. I find that very frustrating as I have been sunk or caught and hung trying to pay off my notoriety after a war is over quite a bit. Plus privateers were officially sanctioned so they wouldn't have been put to death on the charge of piracy. In other words, pirates were criminals, privateers were not. Also the in game currency doesn't come at a quick enough income rate so I end up broke way more often than necessary. It'd be nice if players could either customize their own unique flag at the beginning, or if there was atleast a wider selection of flags to choose from. Other than that it's an ok game.

    Game is great and to be honest I expected much less. However there are some things that need sorting out like paying your crew, I had made 100k and crew demands half of it, so I pay and set sail go to next town and have a look again and they demand another half of my left over 50k, crews are greedy and do not understand what it's for. Could do with more of an item list to trade, the ability to fight sea monsters and ghost ships. Maybe add a diving bell to your ship and make someone walk the plank. I honestly though if I sacked an island it would then be mine to start my own pirate island off, would be a fantastic thing to add to the game with fort upgrading adding brothels, ship yards and commands fleets of pirates. So much can be done to this game it has potential..

    I love the game and constant updates keeps it at a high replay value. It's not only enjoyable for me, but I've passed the hype on to my gf, and father to which they've also been playing for quite some time now to pass the time. We've been just wondering if it would be possible to add fleets, since it seems you can continue to capture ships, I thought it be nice if the crew could be spread and cargo between a fleet of ships that the character could command at the same time!!!

    The game requires strategizing, but is easy enough to pick up. It has trading, marketing, fighting, an decent variety of ships, and the dialogue is pretty well written as well. As stated before, it's highly realistic and complex for the more hardcore fans of the genre, but is easy enough to get into within a couple minutes. Great mix between RTS and "Choose your story" games.

    Outstanding. The demo let's you have a taste and see if it's for you, then you get the option to pay for the full version with ZERO ads or any intrusions. I feel this is how it should be and I applaud the developers for that choice. The game can seem daunting at first but it is very satisfying to claw your way to the top so I urge you to stick with it. The majority of game mechanics work well and the stories are interesting and fun to pursue. Very few bugs and no crashes (HTC one M8) so far. If you liked Sid Meiers Pirates! then you should get this game as it is very similar. --------------------------------- I wish you could have a fleet of ships instead of being confined to one ship as the enemy garrisons are so huge in the late game that towns become unassailable. I had a ship with 450 elite sailors (modifications left me with 16 cargo slots) and we just scraped a victory against 600 Spaniards. (Apprentice diff) It does get repetitive and it may feel like a grind at times, I can imagine that people may be put off by it but you need to build your infrastructure beforehand, it's all the more rewarding. I'd like to see interactions with governers deepened and maybe the option to go freelance and maybe include a pirate faction. Fantastic game, will be even better with future updates.

    Great game bought gold within 2 days. Would b nice to c more ship upgrades. Id like to c more skill gain options and the points 2 spend on them the same with stats right now stats get set at start & then dont change but u can increase skills/traits but even that stops at lvl 15 from my understanding, what im getting at is i want a OP pirate i want him to get stronger or a blank cheat toon where everything is max like god mode. Not fussy. needs a buy gold coin option so dev can make money & i can have coin

    works well but I haven't managed to survive long, you don't realise how fast the time passes and end up short in supplies or cash and end up dead, but for a piracy game it's one of the best!
