  • Summary: Yohoho! Puzzle Pirates is an online game in which you play a Pirate character in an ocean world. Hundreds of your fellow player Pirates swarm these Isles and Sea-lanes. For Pirates who love acronyms, Puzzle Pirates is an massively multi-player online roleplaying game, or mmoarrrrpg. Pirates can wander around on land and sail the thirty-seven seas with their crew. When your Pirate sails, or swordfights, or navigates, the appropriate Puzzle game is launched. Good Puzzling thereby brings victories and accrues great fortunes to you and your fellow Pirates. Thus Yohoho! brings you Puzzling fun in a social Piratical setting, where every Puzzle game contributes to the greater story of your Pirate, her Crew, and the Ocean world. [Three Rings] Expand

  1. 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.
  2. The puzzle variety is large enough to keep you from getting bored, and with room for your character to expand you’ll be surprised at how much you actually play.

    The puzzles are very interesting and there is a form of leveling, albeit abstract. A pretty deep player economy is built in as well. The entire game is well put together, even if the graphics and sounds aren't of Galaxies caliber.
  4. 80
    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.
  5. Adds a chatty, entertaining social angle to the addictive stable of PopCap-type games that otherwise lead to loneliness, depression, and suicide instead of glory on the lawless oceans. [Aug 2005, p.76]
  6. The atmosphere more than makes up for any shortcomings in the visual department. Communication with other players is easy and the sense of community is quite refreshing.
  7. 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.

    This is an MMO puzzle game. It has very nice cartoony graphics and fun gameplay. Since it is a "kid" game, it also lacks the annoying trolls of most "free" games. I can't think of anything to complain about in this game. I love it! Expand

    I'm not a "gamer", but my brother downloaded this game and as soon as I played I got hooked! I love the interaction aspect of the game - I'm part of a crew that's like family! Expand

    an interesting twist on MMO, where the skill of the player actually effects the outcome. you can also play it for free. however trying to get ahead can turn into a real ratrace. the puzzles get old too. most of the game activities are variations on the same thing, i.e. Sea Monster Hunting (SMH) is just one big long tactical battle, during which you have to puzzle the entire time or get booted off the ship. would be nice to have some non-mentally intensive stuff to do when your brain needs a break. take the 10 ratings with a big grain of salt, there are alot of addicts/fanbois on this game, its like crack for them.

    It think this is the worst game because most of the Oceanmasters do not pay attention to what you say and some of them are to lazy to do their work and Ban you right away, Like my friend who wasted 20 bucks on this stupid game, got banned for saying bad words and did he apologize??? Yes he did, did the oceanmasters accept? no they didn't they were too lazy to, my friend wasted so much time on that useless game and later regretted he played it, he was permamently banned ofcourse and the worst Oceanmaster of Puzzle Pirates is... EURYDICE! Yes, you hear me Old Lady, DO NOT BE LAZY TO DO YOUR WORK. Expand
