I like the look of this one. It seems pretty interesting. I can't really tell if it's a full-blown Sid Meier's Pirates clone or if it's just a basic Dope Wars-a-like trading game with a calypso theme.

I'm a real sucker for any kind of trading / tycoon game like Chocolatier so I'm hoping this turns out to be a good one

After Let's Golf! is done downloading I may download it I guess, only thing I'm worried about is the $5.00 price tag and how much content and upgrades there are.... running low on money. ;p

I played the original Tradewinds and it's a good game. This looks to be designed around Sid Meier's Pirates. Probably a little light on the strategy side, but easier to play for the casual player.
