Better than clash of clans

Easily better than clash of clans with better graphics, exploration and battles. Dead pirates instantly turn into bones and no blood, Overall highly recommended!!!!

This title has:

Easy to play/use
Too much consumerism

Is It Any Good?

PLUNDER PIRATES doesn't do anything wrong, but it doesn't do anything to really knock your eye patch off. It will be instantly familiar to players of Clash of Clans, Boom Beach, or Star Wars Commander, but aside from the nautical setting, there's not a lot that's different here.

There's a lot of hurry up and wait, even in the early parts of the game. That's meant, of course, to get you in the habit of using gems, which bring construction or long battles to an end. The problem is, once you're used to that and have run out of gems, you'll need to use real-world cash to buy more. Those who've never played this sort of game before likely will appreciate the graphics and the core gameplay, but if you've tried one of the many competitors, there's nothing here to hook you.
