Arrgh! Talk Like a Pirate Day is September 19th, and PirateFleet for Friends is Appropriate for the Occasion!

Posted by Carter Dotson on September 19th, 2011

Here are two true facts:

  • September 19th is "International Talk Like a Pirate Day"
  • There is a German startup dedicated solely to pirate-themed iOS games called United Toy.

In celebration of this esteemed holiday where yelling "Arrrgh" and rum consumption suddenly spikes (148Apps reminds you to drink and pirate responsibly), PirateFleet for Friends is now available to help out. This asynchronous multiplayer game plays like the classic Battleship games. Players set up their ships on a grid, and launch shots at their friends, trying to wipe out all of their opponents' ships before they wipe out the player's. The game features the standard push notifications and in-game chat that other asynchronous multiplayer games have become known for. The game is available in both a free flavor that is ad-supported, and a $2.99 ad-free version. The free version allows for the disabling of ads via in-app purchase as well. So, this Talk Like a Pirate Day, celebrate by making friends say, "Arrgh! Ye sunk my pirate ship, ye scallywag!" What's a scallywag? Who knows? Not us, that's for sure.

Upcoming EA Games: Battleship, Connect 4, and Monopoly Classic

Posted by Will on October 29th, 2009

EA is looking to release three classic board games in time for the holiday season: Battleship, Connect 4, Monopoly Classic.


EA will bring a few twists to the classic game of skillful coordinate guessing. You'll use touchscreen controls to battle your enemies in three different modes - classic, salvo, and super weapons. Not wanting to miss out on the social aspect of the game, EA has included local multiplayer (both bluetooth and Wifi).

Connect 4

While EA couldn't quite recreate the joy of pulling the lever at the bottom of the board and watching all of the pieces crash to the ground, Connect 4 will nonetheless be a faithful recreation of the timeless game. Connect 4 will contain single player and multiplayer (local Wifi, bluetooth, and one device sharing). Single player includes classic, challenge, and advanced modes with Powerchips, Max Score, and PopOut. In addition, EA has included 25 unlockable achievements and some fancy visual effects.

Monopoly Classic

While EA has already released Monopoly: Here & Now onto the App Store, they will provide a more traditional experience with Monopoly Classic. Because the cutthroat intensity of property management doesn't quite transfer over to single player mode, you'll be able to play your friends on the go with local Wifi, bluetooth, and single device "pass and play" multiplayer. EA is also including some nice iPhone features such as progressive save, an accelerometer shake to role the dice, and the ability access your iPod library in-game.

Battletaire is a cross between Sudoku, Battleship, and Picross, and despite its simple presentation, it's a great logic game. If you're a fan of in-depth, lengthy logic puzzles, look no further: Battletaire will have you hooked from your first battle!
