Trafalgar Origins comes from Britain's Channel 4, so you might expect it to be full of dull edutainment. It's not! It's fun!
It's ship-to-ship combat at its arcade best. Ship management is kept to a minimum: hit up for sails, hit down for no sails, while left and right steer. Between missions you can spend gold on hiring a crew to improve your ship's speed, handling, attack and defence.
And that's the basics. Now get out there and start plundering!
