Pirate Ring combines the strategy of classic boardgames with the puzzle-solving of sudoku. Are you clever enough to outwit the Captain? Find out when you slide rings in a pattern to capture a winning number of ships. Each move is a puzzle that unlocks victory or defeat.

An elegantly simple game that’s deep on strategy, you can play casually or compete for level rewards and tournament scores against A.I. opponents. Advance from beginner, to journeyman, to the ultimate challenge of Captain. Or choose 2-Player and match up with a friend.

In the tradition of thinking games like Shogi or Chess (though gameplay is faster than those) and requiring the logical reasoning of spatial puzzles, Pirate Ring might strike you like a classic game that’s been rediscovered for a new generation.

Tactical gambits allow you to switch the board in your favor, but only if you can stand against the Captain. Are you game enough?

Really great challenge

I binged on this game, haven't played anything like it. I've gone a lot of rounds so far and still learning tactics to use. Kudos, love this, wish more apps set the bar high.

No audio?

I played this game a few times, but it's really disconcerting that there's no audio - no effects, no music, just silence! I could find any controls either. It wasn't fun because it was so silent. If I just couldn't figure it out, I'd love to play again with sound.
