Which piracy app should I get? Pirates, Harbor Master or Battle of Pirate Bay?

All three apps have an average of 4 star reviews. All three apps are .99 cents.

So which should I get? Or is there another piracy game that I'm forgetting about?

Update: I went ahead and purchased both Harbor Master and Battle of Pirate Bay. Both are stellar games and I don't regret my purchase. Harbor Master really doesn't feel anything like Flight Control. There are just too many differences. And I agree, it feels more polished and like an all around better game. Don't know why I hesistated.


My concern now is that other possibly good games, like Pirates 2, with 4 star reviews simply won't get any attention because they were never talked about on these forums, simply because the dev didn't know about this site and there's just too many games for us to keep track of unless the dev makes it a point to post here.

Thanks Aaron.

Quick question, have you played Battle of Pirate Bay? If so, why did you recommend Harbor Master over it.

The Battle of Pirate Bay is way different than Harbor Master. In Battle of Pirate Bay, you drag the boats to incoming pirate ships to bomb them before they get to your base.

I don't have the second two, but Harbor Master is great.

I only played Harbor Master. So, i can't give feedbacks on other 2 Pirates. However, i have Flight Control and Harbor Master. I LOVE Harbor Master than FC. You can go wrong with Harbor Master for .99 cents.

Thank you. Is it a lot of fun though? I think I would rather have a game that plays very different from Flight Control, and is a lot of fun, over a game that plays similar to Flight Control, and is also a lot of fun.

This goes to anyone that owns Battle of Pirate Bay.

Edit: Went ahead and bought Harbor Master. Now I'm wondering if I should also get Battle of Pirate Bay or Pirates 2 or if they're not worth it.

Haven't tried Pirates 2, but Battle of Pirate Bay is really fun. Online highscores and powerups It's different than Flight Control, but it is great fun.

Harbor master isnt a pirate game. Yes it has pirates for one level but thats only a tiny part of the game. Battle of pirate bay is really good though
