At work have yet to try it out on iPad but the pc version is amazing, I can't even count the hours I've spent on this game. For those who don't like it do you like puzzle games? If so I am not sure what's not to like. The puzzles are mostly based
Off of popular puzzle games, have scoring that actually matters and you team up with people to do pve content where puzzling skill expecially the sword fighting puzzle determine your success or failure. Also you build up money as you play and don't need to spend any money to access everything in the game you only need to convert the currency(Poe) to the premium currency doubloons at the city hall where you are buying them from other players.
Also you can buy ships, clothes, swords, pets, houses, crews, ect. If you don't like it that's one thing but if you like puzzle games you should give this game more than 15 minutes, in that time you havnt even played all the puzzles
Edit: there's also pvp puzzles and poker where u can win Poe from other players (quickest way to make Poe)
