Steam Pirates by Fried Green Apps is an enchanting new RPG for your iPhone that's as whacky as it is fun. If you're worried you'll be locked in to days of grinding gameplay, you'll be happy to know that this is also relatively short title, but once you're done you'll definitely wish there was more.
The game's controls are a mix of touch-based platforming and menu-driven combat sequences common to the RPG genre. Enemies freely wander each of the game's dungeon environments, but various paths are available to explore, with minor platforming sequences often resulting in additional booty to use. Combat is turn based and at times hard to predict, but if you're well stocked on supplies you'll have little trouble with most battles.
Steam Pirates completely rocks-out with a modern pixel-art style, with smooth animations and great steam-punk inspired character designs. You'll find yourself fighting everything from mermaids to robots and even the occasional mini-game to break up the RPG gameplay. It's only a shame that the game is so short as the world is intriguing to explore, diving between plenty of weird and wonderful environments. RPG fans will quickly get used to the game's conventional gameplay, but a lack of helpful descriptions can leave casual gamers in the dark.
Steam Pirates is a weird and wonderful experience from the mind of Luc Bernard that's just perfect for anyone interested in a simple RPG that's appealing to more than just the hardcore crowd.
DescriptionSteam Pirates, the latest creation from the mind of Luc Bernard, is a zany, colorful, casual RPG/Adventure game featuring a loaded cast of pirates, pugs, cats, and rockstars!
"The combat is a blast, but the real star here is the world Bernard has created... Steam Pirates is really shaping up to be something special. In a world with a thousand movie tie-in games and old franchises chugging along, it's refreshing to play something so original." - SlideToPlay.com
Steam Pirates appeals to the casual gamer and the long-time hardcore gamer alike with its traditional turn-based RPG battle system and emphasis on exploration broken up by platforming elements and various addicting mini-games. As the player you will struggle in battles against an army of cats and robots and take part in dramatic ship battles.
