The Atari Times
Of course this game suffered pretty much from its competition with Pirates! but the software company had the good idea to publish it for both the ST and XL. The ST version of Pirates! was delayed for a long time and was never programmed for the XL. Unfortunately, the ST Pirates of the Barbary Coast looks not as good as the ST version of Pirates! - maybe it was rushed out to avoid competition. Overall, this game can be a lot of fun if you are into trading games.
Computer Gaming World (CGW)
An arcade- like game with mediocre graphics and marginal gameplay. Rescue the merchant's daughter, kill the pirate; "In like Flynn" but without his panache and elan.
