WELL THIS GAME IS RIGHT UP YOUR ALLEY.
One of the best management games out there although this game had many bugs alot of them have been fixed and it makes this game all the more funner.
Pros:
-Immersive Management system
-Really fun and challenging gameplay
-Pirates.

Cons:
-Repetitive at times
-Still buggy as all hell

This is a game worth buying if you have about 10 dollars sitting in the corner of your room.

Lots of fun, has 3 modes so you can play over and over in more complicated versions! Updated a lot and doesnt need a good computer to play and i know because i play on an 6 year old lap top. Once in a wile you will suffer the worst thing a charecter going over board for no reason wich instantly kills them. Has problems with cleaning, i have 8 people with the "clean" perk and they still dont clean. i have had hours of fun and my longest game lasting 12 hours.

'Ther game is pretty good, a few bugs but when you get past therm it's actually really good'
Honestly this is one of my favourite games but the lack of polish is astounding. I'm writing this at 2 in the morning and I'm actually crying with how broken the game is. Not to say that it's bad, but the fact that the scaling is difficult to deal with and the AI is a bit stupid makes the game unfairly difficult. To say the game is a bit of a stretch, while it doesn't seem to have small mechanics fixed such as teaching skills or how food is distributed.
However, the game has a lot of potential. I love the fighting and sailing mechanics as well as the division of crews and the way the map is layed out.
If I were to make a general statement about the game I'd say it's horribly broken but basically very well designed.

Right now the game is only 3.49 becasue of a sale and it provides at least 3 hours of fun without becoming tedious. About half the people who buy the game dont like it and only spend enough time to beat one legendary pirate lord and think "screw this Im not going to spend the time to travel around the map and get the other 3". But other people like the game and will replay the game to beat legendary mode. [but they probably will not spend 132 hours on it like me]. The point is the game is worth 3 bucks, even if you dont like it there is enough new things in the beggining to make the game worth it.

7/10

It still warms my heart to see a ship shapted like a shoe

PROS
  • Fun game, for a while
  • Interesting ship-building and exploration system.

NEUTRAL
  • Graphics settings are a bit odd.

CONS
  • Very, very buggy.
  • Progressively becomes laggier and laggier the longer you play.
  • Repetetive, no real replay value.
  • Combat is lame.
  • Inventory management is horrible.
  • Devs seem to have abandoned the game.

In short, don't buy this unless it's on sale, and even then you might want to find something better to spend your dinero on.

Pixell Piracy is a mixed box for me.

I\'ll start off by saying that yes, I did sink over 4 hours into the game first session, so the game is certainly enjoyable and rewarding to some degree. However, lack of UI clarity and a vague item description hold this one back. Here\'s a basic list of pros and cons in my opinion.

PROS:

-Lots of islands to visit.
-Fun but simple combat.
-Killing pirates and getting loot is satisfying.
-Neat pixel graphics.
-Expanding and building your own ship/crew is enjoyable and motivating.

CONS:

-UI is vague and difficult to navigate.
-Weapons stores tell very little of what the weapons actually do.
-When buying crew members, it\'s basically a box of chocolates; you never know what you\'re gonna get (again, thanks to the crummy, nondescript UI).
-A constant loot stream in the side of the screen makes it difficult to keep track of any particularly good loot you\'ve gained without checking your inventory periodically.

I got this game on sale for roughly $2.50. I figured I could supplement one cup of coffee this week for a full fledged indie game, and I think it was worth it. I look forward to continuing my adventures in the open seas with my crew, Captain Trevor, Mickey, and Vidali, but not before the interface gets a substantial overhaul.

Game feels incomplete.

Lots of info are missing, sometimes I can`t see the X from the Treasure Map inside an island. Later I was able to see, but I don`t understand exactly why. Maybe it`s Intelligence?

Pets are useless.

You wouldn`t know that Int gives Discount when buying things.

Travelling takes a huge time and is annoying.

When you have a huge crew the constant noise of them chewing food makes me insane.

Game becomes way laggier on late game to the point my cannoners are able to shoot 8 cannonballs at once each.

Having to wait 50 seconds to start a battle because of the bordering time limit is annoying as ♥♥♥♥.

I really liked when I put one of my crew to use the cannon, the enemy thought it would be a good idea to enter my ship then he killed all my pets, feels awesome.

Seriously, just ignore pets, they are useless.

Somehow Ranged Weapons can`t be leveled through use. Only through grindstones.

Also the tutorial says that you need TP to learn Skill Books, but I think they changed it so you don`t need TP to use skillbooks anymore.

If you have someone fishing, he ignores the fact that he has Skurvy and dies if you don`t do anything.

Fishing sucks, they are useful in a certain part of the game, but then you start getting huge amounts of money, so you buy Soup / Melons / Sea Biscuit which are thousand times more effective than fishing.

Fisher can`t repair Ship.

Chicken can't make eggs somehow.

Pets are useless.

One time when I was doing a bounty quest when I killed the guy, his corpse didn't get thrown out of my ship and the quest bugged. So the island was empty but I wasn't able to get the quest reward.

You should really have at least one character going full int, the price discount is very nice.

Agility is overpowered, having a character with 40-60 agility is better than any other stat.

Somehow when playing on legendary, high leveled Islands are really tough. Animals not only have lots of evasion but sometimes the massive amount of enemies over there keeps knocking you back. I guess when you get 12+ crew + cannons it becomes a lot easier.

I think game has a lot of potential, but it really needs an update to make it better. However, it is overall a fun experience and I would still recommend it.

It's super fun (and yes the pirates are CUTE) to me at first...but that lasted for only about 4 hours. Then it gets kind of repititive and boring (and the goals seem somewhat easy). It could be a great game with new contents, I just don't know if the developers are still working on it. Also with all the patches it still has lots of bugs and that's annoying, I get stuck every 30 min.
I got it on promotion but if you are looking to buy this game with its original price, not worth the money.

Product received for free
Great concept and idea. Decent execution which however suffers from bad development.

In other words game is buggy and not fleshed out too greatly. Tutorial for one doesn't explain all features at all. Bugs are still in game and they are game breaking. Captain being stuck on edge of shore being the worst one since you cannot continue the game when that happens. Then there is bugs like ranged skill not gaining experience from use and many balancing issues.

Also seems like development has stopped and team has moved on. Which leaves you with the bugs at hand forever.
Regrettably I cannot recommend this game and would suggest staying away from this even when it is 75 % off.

I bought this game back in it's "Early Access" stage and it looked freaking amazing back then. After playing it again after about a year of not touching it, I saw it was finally released as an actual game with frequent updates. The game is one of the better games out there.

There was so much TLC put into this game and it shows.

You should buy it without questing.
