Pirates 2 box cover

Sid Meier's Pirates! remains to this day one of the most famous strategy games ever made. A lot of people were disappointed when MicroProse released a poor remake called Pirates! Gold in 1993, and felt it could have been much better.

One fan, Marcel Strbak, decided to 're-program' the original and add many new features, such as improved dating options, more realistic weather, the ablility to angle your cannons, and other features. Called Pirates 2, this game is available as freeware. It isn't 100% finished but seems to have been close enough to make thousands of people want to try it.
