For: iPad

Published by Bungie Aerospace and developed by Harebrained Schemes, the turn-based, top-down iPad steampunk battler Crimson: Steam Pirates has finally landed on the shores of New Zealand's App Store - you can, therefore, expect a worldwide plundering by midnight.

The free-to-play Crimson: Steam Pirates marks the debut release from the newly created Bungie Aerospace partnership program, set up to help mobile game studios develop their ideas into full-blown games.

But what exactly does this Bungie Aerospace involvement mean for players of Crimson: Steam Pirates on iPad? Well, much like any Halo game, you'll be able to track news, stats, and progress on Bungie.net.

Bloodied waters

The game itself takes place during an alternative American Civil War. You play Pirate Captain Thomas Blood, who attempts to conquer the Caribbean Sea by anticipating enemy moves and countering them successfully.

Because it's a freemium release, you'll start with eight voyages and 2 pass-and-play multiplayer scenarios. If you want more, you'll have to cough up £1.49 / $1.99 for chapter 2, entitled Tales of Captain Blood.

Crimson: Steam Pirates is exclusive to iPad, free, and out now in New Zealand. It'll be invading international waters later today.
