Game description: Dangerous and fantastic island worlds are waiting to be discovered in Pirates: The Legend of Black Kat. Join the heroine, Black Kat, on a mission to liberate Voodoo Isles from Captain Hawk's evil clutches. Customize one of 12 vessels with a wide range of items and rare magical weapons. With your ship's massive firepower or your own swashbuckling skills, you can battle witch doctors, mermaids, mythical beasts, spirits, skull apes, and more. Once you've conquered the solo missions, you can battle a friend in ship-to-ship combat for treasure and bragging rights.
Throughout the game Kat will find magical objects and artifacts, confront dangerous creatures and savages, complete quests for island inhabitants in return for help, wage naval battles against the Crimson Guard, collect booty and unearth buried treasure which she can use to upgrade her ship, discover the truth of her mother, Mara, and ultimately avenge her father Marcus’ death by defeating the evil Captain Hawke.
