    Pixel Piracy is a pirate-themed roguelike, pretty basic in its gameplay dynamics and with a good leveling system. The control system is a little bit messy, and so is the interface. Not as deep or replayable as Faster Than Light, though.

    Fun and deep but not as beautiful or full of content as we would have liked.

    It's a good choice if you like management games, particularly considering that there aren't too many options available on consoles. Still, it's repetitive and it feels like it never unleashes its true potential.

    Pixel Piracy is a side-scrolling 2D simulator with RPG elements, where the player can recruit a crew, customize the ship and use aggression to find treasures. Even though the game is too linear, with poor combat system and unvaried exploration.

    Boring and afflicted by numerous bugs, Pixel Piracy could have been an engaging and enjoyable adventure. Unfortunately, the ideas end up too quickly and the crafting system reveals all its limits.

    Sadly, pixel art can't make right a game that lacks interesting gameplay or mechanics.

    It's the most broken game I've played on PS4. [Apr 2016, p.94]

I was really getting into it and then it became unplayable due to frame rate issues and laggy controls. Normally slight frame rate drops don't bother me but this is shocking. Not sure how it got released to be honest. Real shame. I have asked Sony for my money back as this simply doesn't work!. Would re evaluate my review if the devs can be bothered fixing it though (that does not seem likely). Expand

    So after spending a few hours, frames dropped with little action, vendor inventory not loading, suicidal crew jumping in water for no reasonSo after spending a few hours, frames dropped with little action, vendor inventory not loading, suicidal crew jumping in water for no reason and rather train instead of eating and starve to death.

    After all that i randomly lost my save files.

    No thank you, will never playor buy another game from them.
