Editors' reviewAhoy! Slap on an eye patch and start your swashbuckling. Pirate Hunter puts you behind the wheel of a privateer boat as a daring captain, out to plunder Pirate booty from towns and ships at sea. You can choose your allegiance, either to the Spanish, English, Dutch, or French. The game combines a bit of role play and a lot of strategic thinking, as you figure out how to capture towns and ships, gather gold for you and your crew and keep your craft sailing the high seas. Colorful graphics and cool ship models keep it interesting, and a jolly soundtrack puts you in a "Pirates of the Caribbean" kind of mood. We weren't thrilled that our pirate action is limited to only one scenario in the demo version, and what's more, it's a whale of a download. Overall, it's a pirate's life for us.
Experience the swashbuckling world of Pirate Hunter and run amuck through the Caribbean. Through 16 scenarios, you'll grow your riches as you steal ships, plunder towns, and earn bounties placed by town governors. Stay vigilant to avoid treachery, mutiny, and defeat, or else you'll end up in Davey Jones' locker.
This new demo for Ascaron's pirate game has been updated to better reflect both the U.S. and European versions of the game. Play through the initial scenario, which will help you get started in a life of privateering.
