Can someone tell me how good this is? Is this just another sea battle game or is it more like the sid meiers game? It looks cool...

Video looks cool, though it lacks (and needs) music.

It's more like Sid Meier's Pirates

It's more like Sid Meier's Pirates. And update 1.1 brings music to the game.

Game Impressions

Yes, the music is very good!

I do not know if you would like it or not, but this is not a stupid clone of any other game selling in the App Store.

This has long story with well developed characters. My favorite is the First mate, he makes tons of humorous comments during the game. But I love the other characters as well!

The game video focuses on arcade part of the game, but there is tons of dialogs too.

that does sound promising. I loved Pirates.

Do you go into towns and trade, or what?

very tempted to pick this up if there's a bit more to it that just sea battles...
