How to beat the game (it's not impossible).

First off, DO NOT BUY the following ships: Caravel, Fluyt, Frigate, Corvette, or Clipper. They cost more because they have bigger cargo room; they suck at fighting. Buy the ships on the right side of the list.

1. When you get stars, ALWAYS upgrade your accuracy to the maximum first. Your starting accuracy is so bad that half your cannonballs miss in the beginning; fix it as soon as possible. Then spend your stars on improving action points, followed by damage. After that, then upgrade cargo or hull depending on your preference.

2. Don't go out hunting pirates from the beginning. Spend a few weeks traveling back and forth between ports to buy goods marked as "good price" and sell it to the highest bidding port.

3. When you can, try aiming for the hull of the ship-it costs 5 more points in battle than a quick shot, but it does WAY more damage.

4. Always get the latest offense oriented ships when you can (Carrack, Galleon, Pinnance, Barque, or Ship of the Line). Don't be stingy.

5. Upgrade your ships. When you have a Ship of the Line, its damage is practically doubled with full upgrades, giving an insane stat of 440 damage. With gunpowder for 500 coins, it can blow up any ship with one shot (or at least 70% of the time if the enemy ship has 600hp)

6. In the later half of the game, don't focus on trading; just fight ships. In the long run, you end up with so much money that it's pointless to trade.

7. Don't hesitate to use cannonballs and dynamites during battles in later games. As you get more expensive ships, it's better to spend 5000 coins on dynamite and blow your enemies apart in one turn instead of wasting turns by shooting normal cannonballs back and forth with your enemy. The repairs become greater than the coins you spend on dynamite when you have Barques or Ships of the Line.

8. Gunpowder is the most expensive, but also the MOST profitable good to trade. Buy gunpowder from Panama and sell it at Pinar.

9. Fill your entire fleet with Ships of the Line with FULL upgrades in hull and damage. Otherwise, the battle will be almost impossibly hard. DO NOT BUY THE CLIPPER. So many people buy the most expensive ship thinking it's the best one, and fail to actually look at the ship's stats.


As proof, here's my record: I won in 351 days with 1,213,733 coins. My fleet consisted of Ships of the Line, and after fighting the boss, I had two ships left.

it's a very fun game and I love the idea, however it seems that defeating the pirates at the cities becomes too hard. I had 3 cogs and beat montego yet with 3 carracks i could not beat the next city. It seems that there should be a more linear leveling of enemies. This makes you have to do a bunch of trading before you can continue in order to get better ships.

Otherwise I love the music and the originality of it. The fighting is simple, but fun as is trading.

It would've been a 4 star if the boss battle wasnt so flawed. I have three of the strongest ship ( of the line ) with ALL upgrades, and all my skills are maxed ( accuarry, dmg, hull etc... ) and I still CAN't kill the boss even though I use the most expensive and best ammo ( dynamite ). He gets to 3-4k and destroys me, every single time. Impossible, you must get really lucky. No skill required, just luck. Tried it six times and now I give up on this game. Thank you author for making the boss meta.

neat game. I enjoyed the trading and upgrading. unfortunately many crashes as someone allready mentioned. also I seem to be stuck near the end - I''m in caracas and the message popping up when entering for the first time told me there's some kind of compass I will need in order to find the ghostship. well I searched for a while now and can't find anything ... some more information on that would have been helpful. in case it's supposed to be in caracas' trading window - it's not there. so yeah I had fun but only 3.5/5 since I'd like to finish the game.

Great game and enjoyable playing...very well done. Thanks! A couple of nits would be to add a way to see your cargo when you are "at sea"...sometimes I forgot what I had and where I was going with it. :P An option to "apply upgrades to all ships of same type" might be nice, too...but again, these are minor and the game was well laid out, with good music, art and animation. Heh...I really liked it when I realized I could spend gold to boost my damage in a battle! Nice touch!
