Playmobil, famous for miniature people and toy sets covering themes from knights to doll house life to Native Americans, has partnered with Gameloft to bring their Playmobil Pirates game to the Play Store. While Pirates is significantly different from its Nintendo DS namesake, the game features the same animated Playmobil pirates and environments you'd expect, plenty of missions, and social integration.

Starting out, players will need to build a "pirate camp," or home base for a team of pirates you'll assemble to help in your ultimate quest to defeat Blackbeard. Before getting to the infamous pirate boss, however, players will need to complete one hundred levels of swashbuckling, firing cannons, and steering pirate ships, along with plenty of mini games, all while defending their pirate camp.

Interestingly, Playmobil Pirates also features social integration with Facebook, whereby players can "find and visit" their friends, competing with them in mini-games.

It's worth noting that Playmobil Pirates is free to play, with the option to "enrich your experience" using real treasure – I mean money. If you're a fan of Playmobil toys or games, or just want a casual swashbuckling experience, grab the game through the widget below and sit tight for its 162MB additional download.

    Urgh, pay to win crap again. I urge everyone to just start the download and give this game a 1 star rating. Then cancel the download.

      To my knowledge, it's not at all necessary to pay just to complete the game (though I haven't played all the way through yet), it's just an option.

      And advocating disingenuous Play Store reviews is hardly an efficient way to stop free-to-play games from hitting the market. Actually NOT downloading the game at all would be at least as effective, and much more respectable.

      Do you ever wake up and think: "Today is the day when I'm going to say something nice?"

        I know, it's just that I am an emotional gamer. It is not to say I've never written a positive comment on the website before (I have!), but it is just that a lot of things tend to make me upset more than they tend to get me all excited in a positive manner.

          "I know, it's just that I am an emotionally stunted gamer." Fixed that for ya.

    I was excited.... Until I started to play. The graphics are cute and fun but this is really just another social game. You can't get "doubloons" for your quests unless you share on facebook or gameloft. You can speed up building and research with in-app purchases... Typical gameloft stuff. I really wanted to like this game.
