App description: Set off on a journey of revenge against the dread pirate Cinnabar, who killed your parents, and sail the high seas!

The dreaded pirate-lord Cinnabar, scourge of the twelve seas, plagued the seafarers of the Old World in a bloody reign of terror until a brave adventurer put an end to his evil. But now he is back from the dead, seeking revenge, with the dark powers of voodoo at his command.

A fantasy adventure from Steve Jackson and Ian Livingstone in which YOU are the hero!

I've only finished 2 gamebooks on iOS, and have only completed all endings in one of them.

This looks really good, but my gamebook backlog is pretty huge right now i dont think i need more at the moment.

Undead Pirates is a fresh theme (on iOS gamebooks) and would really like to give this a go sometime though.

I've never played the original of this one, actually only ever bought the SJ and IL penned books (although there may have been one other).

Anyway, what's the writing and story like on this?
