Puzzle Pirates

Game Description

Puzzle Pirates is an open-ended multi-player game where pirates search out adventure, friends, fun and treasure in a huge puzzle-driven world.

After creating your Pirate, you are free to travel from Island to Island around the Ocean, earning your keep as a sailor and buccaneer. You can use your wealth to buy a ship, fill out your wardrobe, or even become a merchant yourself. There is almost no limit to what you can do!

Unique among massively multi-player games, many of the aspects of the Puzzle Pirates world are based on playing fun, engaging puzzles. As a result, the game will always present you with new and interesting challenges.

Each ship is crewed by players working together cooperatively to earn their fortune. While out adventuring, players can face attack from roaming brigands or hunt for treasure. The game provides entertainment for players of all ages, from simple puzzling fun all the way to the complexities of battles involving hundreds of ships .
