Puzzle Pirates takes several well-established internet games, mixes in some excellent new ideas, and ties them all together with a friendly, simple theme that's interesting, fun, and certainly inoffensive. It won't grab the focus away from Half-Life 2 or reduce the sheer fervor over World of Warcraft, but it isn't even trying to. Instead, Three Rings has done what The Sims did for offline play: create an environment and playstyle that appeals to those who don't commonly play games while still presenting enough elements for the average gamer. This package is excellently put together, and worth a look for any player who enjoys a bit of puzzle fun now and again without any major overhead. Three Rings should be commended for going in uncommon directions, and I'm excited to see where Puzzle Pirates goes from here.
You have puzzles and you have people. Puzzle Pirates puts them together in a friendly, competitive atmosphere. If you enjoy puzzles and some mild socializing, you’ll probably find you can lose quite a few hours playing in the world of Yohoho! Puzzle Pirates.
Není na tom nic těžkého, vlastně je to docela zábavné. Všude kolem vás bude spousta postaviček, které vám budou nabízet velbloudy a jiná vozítka. Hra má velmi pěknou grafiku, svým způsobem se postavičky podobají postavičkám z dětské hry LEGO, což dává pocit nenásilí a optimismu. Vše vyhlíží nesmírně vesele. Hra je detailně propracovaná a nabízí široké možnosti vyžití. Ať už se vydáte jakýmkoliv směrem, jistě nebudete litovat. Když hru budete chtít ukončit, počítač se vás zeptá, zda hodláte postavičku uložit nebo ne. Je jen na vás, co zvolíte. A teď už se pusťte do hraní a objevování pokladů tohoto kouzelného světa.
Yohoho! Puzzle Pirates is a collection of addicting and fun puzzles within a living world. It can be played solo, but the true experience lies online where you and many other pirates meet and explore the sea as well as the many islands that inhabit it. So grab your sword and bandana and get ready to drink and pillage…in puzzle form!

Few games break the mold these days. Games that claim innovation usually leave the player asking "What was so special about this one? It was just like that one." This is even truer in the massively multiplayer genre than any other. Most take one piece from game x and one from game y and add in their own unique twist z, but after playing it for some time, it starts to feel just like every other on the market. 3 Rings Software, however, not only breaks the mold, but smashes it to pieces. Yohoho! Puzzle Pirates takes puzzle games and puts them smack dab in the middle of a persistent state world with a player driven economy. Not only that, but you get to be a pirate, complete with cleaver and hat (if you so choose). How could you not love that?

A massively multiplayer anything-that-isn't-an-RPG is such a simple, perfect idea. In retrospect it's shocking how long it went without being realized. One would think that with the absolute glut of high profile MMOPRG's out there right now that more would have broken from the formula of killing things to make numbers get bigger laid down by World of Warcraft, EverQuest, and ultimately, the text based MUDs of the ancient world. As usual, it took a small developer to take the risk of doing something different. The result is a game that stands out in a sea of competitors not because of an enormous budget, years of hype or an expensive movie license, but because it's simply unique and fun.
If you have the disposable income to drop on a game like this, then there's no doubt that you should at least give it a try for the first free month. As puzzle games go, Puzzle Pirates is a winner, and it's not just because of how good its puzzles are by themselves, but also because of how it ties all of its puzzles into the larger gameworld, creating a completely self-perpetuating economy and community purely out of puzzling. It's a bizarre concept that's done very well. And even if you don't want to shell out money on a monthly or yearly basis, the $20 price tag is more than worth it for that first free month.
The art and music are a little cheesy, with your pirate and everyone else in the world looking like slightly-smoothed Lego people and most song loops seeming pretty short, but they definitely fit the feel of the game, which is light, cartoony, and fun. All in all, I think that as one of the first casual MMOs on the market, Puzzle Pirates has a lot to offer the Gaming industry in general and the MMO niche in particular, but I do think there is definitely some room for improvement, especially in new player immersion and effective use of the persistent game world.
Yohoho! Puzzle Pirates is a great game that every puzzle fan should consider. It's unlike anything you've ever played before. You enter into a persistent online community that is made up of pirates and pirate-related characters. It's kind of like a RPG but without the nerds. Instead of killing characters for experience points, you solve puzzles with other members of your community to gain money and further a common cause. Players that you encounter don't take things too seriously. There is a deep vein of humor that feeds the seven seas. It's all in good fun.
It may not be the worlds greatest game but it still brings a lot of funny perspectives into the world of massive multiplayer online games. The game offers a great way of relaxing, making it the more ideal game for a quit sunday (or evening for that matter) where you simply want to relax in front of the computer. It's also one of the easiest games to learn how to play, making it possible for people of any age to play it.
It’s clear that Puzzle Pirates lacks the sort of appeal most hardcore gamers salivate for and casual gamers who enjoy the puzzle games of pogo or bottle cap would be hard pressed to pick this title up for a subscription.
