Under rating threshold (show) PLEASE continue development on this game. It's beautiful and fun, just incomplete. Honestly the graphics were more than I'd dared hope for. The gameplay is pretty solid, but it needs some tweaks. 1) Some sort of help to know how & where to buy low/sell high would make trading a viable profession. 2) A "Reputation Meter" could help further draw a line between trader & scallywag. Maybe ships only attack on site if your reputation is below a certain point. 3)Just like everyone said, quests. 4) TAKE THE iPHONE AD OFF so you can see how much money you have. 5) Make it so upgrades actually change the look of your ship in a noticeable way. Also I wasn't sure if you get any money for trading in your ship, but it can be assumed you're not just sinking it off the coast. Show how much trade-in value I get out of my ship (assuming this isn't already in place. I couldn't see it but I'm also kind of dense.) PLEASE make this into the amazing game it could be!

Under rating threshold (show) Decent game. But it still has a lot of potential. Add optional missions (treasure hunting, finding legendary ships (Black Pearl?), letter of marque,...), WSAD controls, make the camera controllable, and display the prices of goods visible in the map, so that you can plan your route. YOou could also add expert settings, like crew managment or, reefs and currents or maybe even sea beasts. Keep it up! 4/5

Under rating threshold (show) Great game! I'd love to see a little more depth to it. Maybe some way of doing missions, stats, and even a bit more RPG elements, but the gameplay is addictive as is! The UI could be a little better: hard to tell how much $$$ you have, what type of ship you are in, etc. One thing I disliked was the enemy spawns. One minute you're fighting a sloop, the next minute 3 man'o wars....where were they 30 seconds ago? hiding behind a wave? In any event, I'll be playing this one again and again. With a little more work this could be like the original (top down) GTA w/ Pirates.

Under rating threshold (show) 1) The IPhone ad needs to go or at the very least be moved. 2) You should be able to keep your ships so you can have multiple options. 3) You should be able to sell your ship. 4) By the time ships start getting to be $200,000 your ship should be able to shoot forward as well as to the side. These are just suggestion that I think would make the game better.

Under rating threshold (show) another addition you might make is to make it where if you click the left mouse button your left side cannons fire and if you click the right mouse button then it fires your right side cannons. because i had seom cannon misfires where it fired the opposite direction i wanted it too and aslo so if you get caught between two ships you can attack both of them

Under rating threshold (show) The aesthetics are pleasing, but the mechanics need a little work. - The camera controls. Dear Lord, the camera controls. I spent as much time fighting the interface as the bad guys. Please, please give the player control of the view changes. Oh, and the controls become unresponsive during and shortly after a camera change. Which is Not Good For You when you are about to have your T crossed by an angry galleon. - Some rhyme and reason in the pricing of goods would be nice (also, displaying the average and marginal price of your current cargo). Perhaps large islands would import sugar and fish and produce rum and cloth, and the western part of the archipilago produce timber and the eastern part produce cocoa. Would make trading (or just picking which of the two or three nearby ports to unload your - ahem - acquired cargo in) much less of a luck-based mission.

Under rating threshold (show) it would be nice if you had some to go and talk island residents and learn were certain goods are sold low and high in other places, get extra quests and equipment. Being able to capture a ship and get more cargo from it and having the option of keeping a captured ship would be nice too.

Under rating threshold (show) once you buy a large ship, you have zero money, and they are mostly useless in fights, they absorb massive amounts of damage, and even though they are almost impossible to sink, it costs so much to fix them, that raiding other ships is pointless, because even if you only get hit a few times, it costs more to repair than the amount of "spoils" are worth.

Under rating threshold (show) It'd be nice to see a feature where you could toggle whether or not you want to fight. I've died many times rum running because 3 or 4 ships start attacking me and my ship slows down because technically I'm in a "fight". What could happen is that if it's toggled you go faster but can return fire, if it's toggled off you can fire but go slower

Under rating threshold (show) I had difficulties finding out the beginning is a preview... No help and this bloody ad that hides the money you have. Repairing expensives ships is too expensive: with 20k I don't even repair my corvette!!! Cheap ones are way easier to earn money, when I changed of ship, I lost a lot... and my old one is just lost as sunk... This is bad!!!

Under rating threshold (show) Tips: 1- To make fast money: Dont buy anything! Keep killing enemies witch only 1 cannon, take the barrels and sell in the closest island. Avoid powerful enemies. Buy the ship of 40.000, them, keep killing enemies witch 1-2 cannons. Buy the ship of 60.000! The best ship is in a "fish-island". Thumbs up if it helped.

Under rating threshold (show) PROBLEMS: 1. Left/Right arrow key turning lockup, causes massive money/time loss from all the normally EASILY avoidable damage. 2. Letting players choose which side of their ship their cannons shoot from and when. This is a major problem especially when the cannons are upgraded. I can't "snipe" other ships from long range when the cannonballs can actually reach that far, because over half that time they shoot from the OPPOSITE side of my ship! I assumed the mouse could determine the direction but it doesn't. 3. The menus simply haven't had effort put into their design, they're not appealing and most players don't know what they do until after clicking them, common sense. 4. The island clipping allows ships to force their way through the land. 5. "Sell All" button please. 6. World map that allows setting waypoints to plot a course please. 7. Overhaul of "trading system" please. 8. More weapons.

Under rating threshold (show) This is the description of the game: You are the captain of warship from Dominican. After an unsuccessful battle far from mother island, you are on the other side of the world with little money, which just enough for small ships. Now everything depends on you! Will you be able to return home on warships or will disappear in the depths of the sea in one of the bloodiest battles. At the beginning of the game you play on one of the easiest ships. Fortunately for any island has a wide selection of more advanced ships, which you can buy. In addition to purchasing a new vehicle, you can always improve an existing one. There are three types of improvements: - Guns - increases the power of kernels and slightly reduces the recharge time. - Armor - reduces the chance of the enemy to cause damage to your ship. - Sails - increases the speed of the ship. A in-game description will be better

Under rating threshold (show) The vision in battle mode is way too myopic, you can get shot by ships outside your vision... No goal, best ships aren't this good when not upgraded, the games is too slow... Very good basis, but lots of improvements to do. There is also a problem : there are 2 flanks that should be independant. There, they are the same: you fire left, and the right is also empty...

Under rating threshold (show) Tips : 1. Be careful when choosing your ship. It's very pricey and no refund for the previous ship 2. Don't upgrade your ship unless you are pretty sure that you will stick with that ship for a pretty long time. Upgrade lost when you buy a new one 3. santa catalina with the greatest ship "Victory" can be found at the secret island in the map with the ship and octopus picture. It's 400.000 so be sure to save some money. 4. The trick to easily collect money is via trading and leave some in your cargo compartment for looting. Buy fish at around 20's, textile at 60's, log at 80's, salt at 90's , barrel at 100's (i've seen one around 80's) , and cocoa at 130's. 5. Big or small ship rarely made a difference in cargo loots. Small ship which is destroyable in 2 shoots drop pretty same loot with the holy man-o-war. So choose your battle carefully. 6. Do an S pattern. DO TURN after you shoot your cannon. Avoid being trapped between 2 ships. + so everyone can see

Under rating threshold (show) There is a hidden Island on the south part of the map by where the picture of the ship being eatenby the octopus is. The name of the Island is Santa-Catalina and it's home to the most powerful ship called the Victory. It's got better stats and is bigger than the Man of War.

Under rating threshold (show) The cannons in this game have the unique ability to fire on either side of the ship very quickly, to bad that the 'operators' of the 'turrets' are not controlled by the captain (user). I think a better idea would be to have cannons on both sides of the ship and both sides can be fired by pressing different buttons. This way the user can avoid missing because the cannon target was on the opposing side.

Under rating threshold (show) So good game idea. But these need to be changed a bit to make it more fun. Nothing worse then a full hull no health and not being able to run away to fight another day. You really need to be able to change from fighting to running. I died a lot of times cause of that. It gets old real fast.

Under rating threshold (show) I agree, it's a nice game the team should keep it's development. Though it does need a tutorial, better self-localization on map, a story and better graphics we know unity can do better. Also normally it's important to guide the player until some point in order to teach the basics and don't make the player feel abandoned to the winds. I believe most game development books talk about it.
