Based on the 1987 game created by Sid Meier, Pirates! Live the Life sails into the mobile arena armed with original features and an additional option for wireless multiplayer action. By selecting a starting year, nationality, and special talent, gamers are given a small group of men to captain and a large environment perfect for pillaging. Through diplomacy, force, and charm players can master the bounding main or die on the end of a British officer's sword. Gamers will find themselves attacking merchant ships for gold, food, and goods as they sail from port to port. When meeting with the Governor in bigger colonies, players can woo daughters with gifts and dancing. If interested, the maidens might shower gamers with rare items, a skill, or some important information. Other activities include dueling with enemy captains, treasure hunts, quests for lost family members, and sneaking into hostile towns. Using an Ad-Hoc connection, up to four players may sail the bounding main together. ~ Gracie Leach, All Game Guide
