Crimson reviews are in!

And we couldn’t be happier about what folks have been saying! Here’s a roundup of some of the reviews we’ve seen so far:

Apple’N'Apps“Crimson: Steam Pirates is an outstanding iPad gaming experience that allows you to dive deeply into the steampunk pirate and sea battle theme. The game just may be the best strategy game in the App Store, and it’s designed so well to fit the iPad. Crimson: Steam Pirates is such a great download for free as you get the whole first saga, and you’ll definitely want the $1.99 second saga after playing the first. Hit the deck, ready the cannons, and fire up the game on your iPad.”

Gamezebo“The most fun we’ve had on the high seas since Sid Meier’s Pirates”

AppAdvice.com“The game’s steampunk aesthetic is gorgeous, and almost as enjoyable as the writing’s snarky attitude. The gameplay itself is engaging, and fresh enough to keep the attention focused on the story. Crimson: Steam Pirates just offers a rewarding strategic experience.”

TouchGen“…unless you have some sort of life threatening allergy towards pirates or pirate related games you have absolutely no excuse not to download this game.”
