Assassin's Creed Pirates $4.99 -> Free (Free to Play)

The game isn't premium anymore. Goes freemium with lots of in-apps.

I got this as apple free app of the week but this update is an insult to people who have paid for this(that is if they changed the prices of the things in game) if they didnt change the in game prices,the game is pretty playable tho so just saying there were always iap here but they have added more of it.

I have just tested the waters (no pun intended) and I am happy to say that there are no cost changes. The most powerful ship in the game, the Goliath, still costs 1,000,000 doubloons, just like before the update. I also did a race, and received 2,500 doubloons, which was par for the course for that region. It seems they only added the cash IAPs, nothing more, which is surprising. I know I got this game for free when it was Apple's Free App of the Week (and all I ever bought was the Supreme Pack when it was $2 as a thank you to the devs), but this must be a real insult to those who paid $5 for this app.

Until and unless it doesn't hamper anyone's gameplay with the in-apps, the game's cool. No matter if you paid $5 or not.

This is no Sid Meir's Pirates, but it's very fun to just sandbox around the seven seas with actual sea shanties playing in the background. I do feel sorry for the poor whales, though. The thing which everyone hated on release- magical dodging boats- actually stops becoming so silly later on in the game when other mechanics, like fast/slow enemy cannon shots, swipeable ordnance, and all manner of personalised upgrades, come into play.

Still not sure I'll hit that update button...
