    "After the first couple of levels: couldn't be more impressed. This is the kind of game which reminds you why you
    play games in the first place. Highly polished, whacky, with a tremendous sense of fun. Highly recommended." — Gabrien, Touch Arcade Forums

    "Simply beautiful and lovely physics; this is superbly designed, sheer pirate inspired, side scrollin' fun!!!" — Kapaa, iTunes Review (US)

    "This is a high quality game with clearly very devoted and passionate developers, they listened to what gamers wanted and delivered!" — Zerofaces, iTunes Review (CA)

    Experience the thrill of piracy without the violence, seasickness, or visits from the FBI.

    Beyond the gameplay, the real reason to buy Plunderland is for the striking simplicity.

    There's a distinct satisfaction to killing and pillaging innocent people, and then spending the ill-gotten money on your own selfish endeavors.

    Full of humour and action, Plunderland is a successfull example of simple mechanics implemented in a really good way. Every flaw will be fixed by the forthcoming update, with new levels and game modes. At the beginning it's not so easy to say why Plunderland is so special, but once you are at the helm it will be really hard to come back on dry land.

    Plunderland is energetic pirating at your fingertips, a high seas adventure with charm and originality.

    With iPhone games, it's the absolute minimum requirement to get the controls right, but in that regard Plunderland fails. And considering that it seems to get everything else right, that's a big shame.
