Sid Meier’s Pirates is the latest Sid Meier (the creator of the epic Civilization series) title to hit the iPad App Store. Meier’s Civilization Revolution for iPad has been in the App Store since April of 2010.
Here’s a slice of the App Store intro for this new game:
All hands on Deck! Sid Meier’s Pirates! is an exciting high-seas adventure that allows buccaneers to helm one of 27 fully customizable ships as they descend upon unsuspecting ports of call to amass a motley crew of seafaring bandits. As a fearless Pirate Captain you will collect hidden treasure maps, undertake daring missions and courageous rescues, and swiftly hand out pirate-style justice to local braggarts at every port. The wild call of the ocean will lure you back to sea where they’ll encounter enemy pirates and engage in mind-blowing open sea battles unlike any other game before on the iPad.
And a few of its iPad 2 specific features:
– Piratize your own picture using the iPad 2’s camera
– Improved graphics
– Additional visual effects
I think the iPad version of Civilization Revolution is a good quality title, so it’s good to see another Sid Meier game hit the iPad App Store, even though I have to admit I’ve never heard of the Pirates title.
Here’s an App Store link for Sid Meier’s Pirates; it’s priced at $3.99.
