Buccaneer is a strategy game following in the footsteps of Sid Meier's Pirates!. Set during the Age of Sail, you have a choice of six campaigns with varying goals (rescue a relative, get buried treasure, etc.), or you can just engage in standalone ship-to-ship battles.

Good management skills are also required, as you must stock up on supplies and recruit men to join you on your missions.
