Pockie Pirates Review
Piracy is more of a romantic and righteous lifestyle than an evil behavior in One Piece, and in the One Piece-inspired RPG of Pockie Pirates. There, you will be a captain of a warship who sail out in your own warship with recruited crew for adventure, battling way up to be the next Pirate King and searching the legendary treasure, One Piece.
Simply selecting one class, you are on your way of questing. Sail off to sea to fight the first battle, relay messages to earn easy silver, talk to NPCs in the village to learn new contents such as skills, recruitment and equipment enhancement – the three types of quests actually display a certain format of in-game quests, that is, fight-talk-learn circuit. By finishing the first several tasks, you can grasp the basics of the gameplay: quests are based on point-and-click with auto path-finding feature; a portal in the town leads to open sea where you don’t really fight in ship but just click the enemy boat one after another to shift into the battle scene; and battle is turn-based and automatic, with other players’ successful example to refer to plan your own formation of crew in the battle.
Pockie Pirates doesn’t reveal itself once and all with all features shown in the interface; rather, playable contents and their icons show up bit by bit implemented in quests with leveling up. As you level up via questing, you need to recruit crew to help in group fight, distribute earned skill points, one every five levels, to unlock new or enhance old abilities of both your character and your crew, better equipment by enhancement, embedding with shells or synthesis, train your crew, hunt down corals underwater for treasure, capture slaves and to fish in others’ harbor, use Event and Daily function for more diversified missions, select one Affiliation to stand by Eastern Adventure Pirates or Western Plunder Pirates, and duel with other pirates in the arena, and so on and so forth. Although the revealed contents are neither fresh nor innovative, the manner of tricking in does add a sense of discovery and progress to the flat quest line, and becomes a sort of incentive to drive you forward.
To upgrade equipment, warship and crew is important and almost decisive for the results of a battle. Only when you have well-armed powerful enough crew member can you stand a chance in increasingly challenging battles. Besides, there is also a little strategy involved due to the formation of crew. In some battles, you just need to make a new formation to win where you fail with the same crew and equipment. Before you launch attack, you can first preview the triumphant examples of other player dealing with the same enemies and try out their strategy used in it. With nine positions and four battle style to deploy, you can sum up the useful formation by trails soon.
Pockie Pirates is no where to compete with quality MMO games in the market, but is not a bad choice within the scope of free-to-play browser-based action role-playing games. The grinding of quests is made up a little bit by the emerging of new playable contents regularly; and combat is, though slow and automatic, with nice catch in terms of strategy, skills and animated visuals. If you are looking for a casual game with a little role-playing and combat, you can try out Pockie Pirates – a head-up is that you will have difficulty to find yourself, blocked by the crowd of characters, in your starting village; spot Luffy, he is by your side!
