Sid Meier’s Pirates! Board iPad
Sid Meier’s Pirates! is a rarity: a timeless classic PC game that has been preserved for all through loving re-releases and updates. The most recent of these adaptations just set sail on the iPad.
The features list looks about like you’d expect: you’re a pirate captain, and you’ve got to do pirate things to get pirate gold. The visuals have been updated an optimized for the iPad display, and Game Center is supported. One nifty extra: You can “piratize” your photos and display them on your ship.
The app is priced at $6.99, but it will be available for $3.99 until July 25th. At price that low, you won’t have to download the game illegally (an act also known as… piracy).
