Swashbuckling iPad adventure Sid Meier's Pirates! sets sail on the iPhone

Oasys Mobile's Pocket Gamer Gold Award-winning iPad adventure title Sid Meier's Pirates!, which has been available on Apple's touchscreen tablet since last July, is now also playable on the smaller screen of the iPhone.

Set on the high seas, this strategy title sees you take on the role of a fearless pirate captain, who's hot on the heels of some of the world's most infamous pirates, such as Blackbeard, Captain Kidd, and Henry Morgan.

Along the way, there are plenty of opportunities to find hidden treasure maps and hordes of glittering riches, or jump into battle with other vicious pirates and commandeer their precious vessels (all 27 of them).

You can also attempt to woo pretty young ladies if you're into that sort of thing.

Sid Meier's Pirates! can now be downloaded for the iPhone for £1.99 / $2.99 [buy], or for the iPad for £2.99 / $4.99 [buy].
