Review: Seven Seas

Rating: ★★★½☆

Popcap has a ton of cute little games, and they seem just intellectual enough that they probably increase your SAT scores or someting like that. Seven Seas is their pirate-based game where you sail around in your little ship blowing up other pirates. The tricky bit is that everyone moves on a grid, and if you’re good you can anticipate where the enemy pirates will go before they go there. If you’re not good – well – you get blowed up. It’s a fun game, and just a little addictive. The cannon blasts make a terribly satisfying “boom,” and the music’s catchy too. There’s an online version, but it’s not nearly so impressive as the one you can download. There’s a version for your Palm Pilot as well, if you’re so inclined.
