Ahoy There, Seadogs:
Interested in knowing our thoughts on all this plundering and pirating? Check out our Plunder Pirates Review!

Have you just downloaded the rather enjoyable pirate-em-up Plunder Pirates and are in need of some assistance? Never fear, for we’re here with a few tips and tricks to make your early days as a bloodthirsty pirate a bit easier!

Starting Out

  • When you first start, you get the aid of a protective shield for the early moments of your pirating career. Take advantage of it! It won’t be there forever and it’ll cost precious gems to erect a new one. Don’t attack others during this time as your shield will drop.
  • Use that safe time to build up your resources. Grog and gold are everything in this game when it comes to getting anywhere.
  • The game is pretty generous at dishing out gems early on. Use that plentiful supply to hire a second builder to help you build more things at once.
  • Use the remaining gems to start saving towards a third builder. Don’t bother rushing production; it’s just not worth it. Be patient.

HeroCraft has announced that they are working on a new game, called Tempest. It will be a free-to-play pirate RPG, coming out later this year.

Tempest is centered around seizing merchant ships, attacking sea forts, and battling warships. Each ship has different battle tactics and can be customized from the flag to the figurehead. Players will be able to equip their ship with a variety of weapons such as cannons, mortars, and even flame throwers.

There will be quests that require magic artifacts and will pit the player against fearsome foes like the Kraken. If that wasn’t enough, you will also be able to play in co-op multiplayer combat. Players on mobile devices and PC owners will be able to play against each other in these exciting sea battles.

So don your best Captain’s hat and strap on a parrot, Tempest will be coming out soon for iOS.

Capcom has today announced their new game Li’l Pirates, scheduled to plunder iOS devices later this month. The game is billed as a sort of action/exploration/RPG hybrid which will allow players to take control of a ship and crew, and their plunder and pillage their way to bigger and better ships as well as earning a name as the biggest scalawag on the Seven Seas. Capcom is promising over 100 ship and character upgrades to be available at launch as DLC, and that number is sure to swell while the game is on the market.

“The release of these titles marks a new direction for the company as we complement our traditional premium pricing model with freemium social games for our customers,” said Midori Yuasa, President and COO, Capcom Interactive, Inc. “By creating a line of casual freemium games we can appeal to consumers not serviced by our more ‘hardcore’ IP and cast a much wider net over the burgeoning smartphone app marketplace.”

At first glance the game sounds a lot like Sid Meier’s Pirates, so we’ll have to wait until we get our hands on the final build to see if the title can live up to that lofty standard. If nothing else, pirate games are basically always instantly appealing just because pirates are pretty great.

Capcom also mentioned plans to launch Zombie Cafe in November as well as an as-yet-unnamed children’s entertainment property in November. According to the description:

“In Zombie Café the player partners with an evil corporation to use zombies as free labor to build their café empire. To thrive, players must prepare food, direct their zombie staff and manage supplies. If the competition gets too fierce they can always direct their zombie workers to attack a neighboring café and steal their secret recipes”

Both Li’l Pirates and Zombie Cafe will be free to play but will offer paid extra content to make the game easier or more “complete.” Publishers have been flirting with the idea of free base games with paid DLC for a while now, so we’ll have to wait and see what Capcom’s take on the idea looks like.

Hello everyone this is Michelle from The Portable Gamer with your iCasual Report for Plunderland from Johnny Two Shoes LLP for all devices running current iOS software.

A’hoy Matey and welcome to Plunderland, where you control a ship of Pirates bent on plundering all the worlds treasures. To set sail, just tilt your device in the direction you want to travel. The more you tilt the faster you go and of course to stop just straighten up. Your ship comes equipped with cannons to destroy your enemy. When you touch the screen you get a helpful dotted line which shows if your aim is true, simply let go to shoot. Sink the ships to unlock the treasure and tap to collect. Each level has a goal to be reached in order to unlock the next, but you should try and collect as much as you can because you use the money for more powerful upgrades.
