Jeez, that was a load of fun! But getting El Dorado took me forever. I'm not sure if like or dislike all the luck-based events in the game, but that's just nitpicking. The only serious criticism I have is that, yeah, El Dorado is very difficult to conquer, you need some luck to do it. The other endings are reasonably difficult to get, but El Dorado is almost too tough. Other than that it's a nice game with lovely designs and great creative ideas. Keep it up!
HINT/SPOILER: It took me a fully repaired max. level ship loaded with all kinds of cannonballs (at least 40 of chain, grape and hot, at least 6 of monkey and parrot) and a crew of 228 heavily armed men (215 cutlasses, 215 pistols) to finally take it. And btw, don't try to enter the Gideon's ship, the game can't cope with that and will send you back to the map.
This is a surprisingly fun game. Well done!
Thanks! Glad you enjoyed it. :)
One on my favorite free games of the year 2013
It gets very repetitive at the end, the combat is somewhat dull, the trading aspect is as boring as it comes.
