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 and Video Games (CVG)
Cascade has hit on a mediocre game formula. Commodore strategists may enjoy it for a few hours but the ST version, which performs in low-resolution graphics mode, make a mockery of the 16-bit power. The company should either have added to the plot and produced high-res graphics for the ST, or left the game on the Commodore.
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.
