The game is a word game, similar to Bookworm Adventures, in which you will have to advance in the story by facing your enemies in word confrontations, where you will have to prove your vocabulary skills. The interface is set in the world of boats, with many ropes, nets and small wooden details. The method is very simple: write words correctly to advance in the game.
In Pirate Princess you will have to ransack the boats that you come across to obtain money, by means of simple games, but be careful who you rob. In a sea full of pirate ships it might not be worth the while to gain more enemies. Therefore, it may be more useful to purchase and sell goods.
