Pocket Gamer reports today that Sid Meierâ€™s Pirates! and Civilization Revolution iOS games have both had their prices cut today in honour of it being the Memorial Day holiday in the US. For a very limited time only you can get the iPhone version of either game for Â£0.69/$0.99, and the iPad version of either game for Â£1.49/Â£1.99. Avid PC/Mac gamers may well be familiar with the name of Sid Meier and with both titles, but to give you a little more information for the uninitiated and younger iOS gamers, Pirates! is the classic swashbuckling high-seas adventure where you get to play the part of a captain as you raid and plunder the 17th Century Caribbean, engaging in pirate ship battles and one-to-one sword fights, all in a bid to save your family from the evil Marquis de la Montalban. Along the way youâ€™ll get to collect secret treasure maps, undertake daring missions, and hand out justice, pirate style.
Civilization Revolution, on the other hand, is a version of Sid Meierâ€™s classic seminal God-Sim made especially for hand-held gaming, in which the player strives to become ruler of the world by establishing and leading a civilization from the dawn of man into the space age, waging war, conducting diplomacy, discovering technologies and going head-to-head with some of historyâ€™s greatest leaders.
