iCreate: "This is one of the first games we've reviewed that can be played by Mac Mini and MacBook owners. Pirates is a role playing game where you take on the life of a boy who's entire family are kidnapped. Many years later you mutiny aboard a ship and become its captain. You can now set off on your quest for riches, infamy and the recovery of your long lost family.
Gameplay is refreshingly simple. You steer your ship across the seas using the arrow keys and use the number pad to control actions, which are constantly on show in the corner of your screen. As you progress through the game you can decide to attack passing ships and visit ports to take on quests."
