Concrete Software just let me know that they have released Sid Meier’s Pirates for BlackBerry. I actually had a chance to play with the pre-release version and was impressed. The game is also compatible with the Storm so everybody can get in on a little gaming action. There is a demo available at the download pages but sadly looks like its desktop install only.
They have a coupon going now on their site which gets you 20% off by using the code SAVING20. If you pick up the game let us know what you think.
