Earlier this week I posted on the fact that the Windows Phone Store has over 300,000 apps and continues to improve and mature. Here is another great example of that improvement. Ubisoft, makers of the Assassin’s Creed franchise, has just released AC Pirates for Windows Phone. This was one of my favourite games for iOS and when it dropped into the store yesterday, without hesitation I hit the Buy button.
And I don’t regret it for a second.
AC Pirates for Windows Phone has you play the role of Alonzo Batilla, a young pirate who is trying to make his way in the pirate world of the Caribbean. He does this by challenging the establishment, forging alliances and of course doing piratey things like steal gold and find treasure. The story line, graphics and game play are outstanding and yes I was up until the small hours playing – again.
