Clash of Clans core loop Like Boom Beach , you find missions (and other handy items) by exploring the ocean. In Plunder Pirates you have a frankly adorable map screen, where you bring colour and life to grid squares on a blank map. I chatted to some chaps from the Rovio Stars team at Pocket Gamer Connects in Helsinki, who pointed out a few ways that Plunder Pirates differs to Clash. For one, the game is in full 3D and you can spin the camera in 360 degrees. You can also tussle with sea monsters, and eventually (possibly in a future update) there will storms and tornadoes that will alter the dynamic of your oceanside base. But ultimately, this is the latest in a long (long) line of games that are inspired so heavily by Clash of Clans, you need a DNA test to tell them apart. Just, you know, with the enormous level of polish that Rovio is well positioned to apply. Plunder Pirates is available now in soft launch in Canada . It should be out worldwide in the summer. Rovio Stars also published Tiny Thief , Juice Cubes , and Word Monsters .
