Before you buy, expand this description to check the system requirements below.

Based on Sid Meier’s original masterpiece, Pirates! invites you to live the life of a 17th-century Buccaneer in this epic, open-ended seafaring adventure.

Test your skills as a privateer flying the Jolly Roger across the Caribbean. Duel enemy captains, exchange plank-shattering broadsides and seize valuable booty, woo fair maidens, dig up buried treasure, and of course plunder unsuspecting ports. As your reputation and skills grow, so will the size and quality of your crew, and your ability to take on larger enemy ships, raid heavily fortified ports, and locate ancient treasure. There’s a whole cast of interesting and dangerous characters to meet, mysteries to solve, and exotic island destinations to discover.

It’s a game of high adventure, where brave and skilled players battle for treasure and glory. Those who succeed achieve great fame and wealth – and those who fail rest forever in Davy Jones’ locker!

• Battle, overtake and command 27 different ship types, enhanced with assorted ammo, cannon and other upgrades.

• Take on various foes including merchant and military captains, ferocious pirates, evil gentry and even rival suitors; each with different skills and abilities.

• Engage in fierce naval battles fighting single enemies or multiple ships.

• Sneak into towns, escape out of prisons, navigate around adversaries and surprise enemy vessels.

• Dispatch landing parties of buccaneers in strategic battles to take over entire cities.

Version 1.1.2
Review by Jerren1

Worth buying, make sure you update for the new keymappings. - First off this is one of my all time favorites from childhood and I'm played/purchased virtually every version ever made and absolutely love the remake. the only complaint I had with it was the keymappings where for a keypad which of course most newer macs simply do not have... untill the latest update! yes even though they say you don't need to update it's worth it just for the new keymappings. Thanks again for an awesome port of a sid Meyer's classic!

Version 1.1.2
Review by Pete L.

PLEASE update Feral - This is a classic game. When it worked, it was a lot of fun to play. However, on newer systems the graphics are corrupted in a way that makes it impossible to play. I reached out of FERAL over a year ago and they said they were aware of the issues. However I see no update since 2011. I guess maybe they have just moved on from supporting this game, but if you have a new MBP (or apparently from the other comments iMac) I would not purchase this game until an update comes along.

Review by Argus Artemis

Glitches - Love the game but get irritated by a couple of glitches. Can't go to the Hall of Champions, screen flickers for a few seconds whenever a scene change occurs, and it doesn't remember my settings after quiting the game. It is still playable and fun.

Version 1.1.2
Review by ResevorDG

Its ok - I liked the Civilization Games by Sid Meier's so I gave this a try. After about 2 hours of play I would have to say that this is just ok. Not great. Not worth the Money. I would say its worth $10.

Stranded - It seemed like a nice game, but I was stranded with no way to reboard my ship, which clearly means the creators didn't test the game.

Review by Macaw

Needs update for Mountain Lion - As another post states, there are now video issues under Mountain Lion. The game ran fine under Lion. We need an update. While the game is somewhat dated, I enjoy it and give it four stars (under Lion)
