Since its iOS launch last September the Rovio Stars title has amassed 7 million downloads and #PLUNDERED feedback to adapt the combat strategy game to community needs

Espoo, Finland- Wednesday 22nd April 2015 - Ahoy there Android mates! Rovio is pleased to announce that Plunder Pirates, the popular Rovio Stars mobile game is now also available for download on Android devices worldwide from today. Android players should hoist the Jolly Roger, grab their eye patch and prepare to join the Buccaneer and his pirate crew-mates to plunder exotic treasures and protect their booty.

Plunder Pirates is a Rovio Stars title developed by industry veterans Midoki, and is set on a dazzling, animated 3D pirate island. Since the game was first released on iOS in September 2014, Plunder Pirates has received continuous improvements based on community feedback from the Plunder Pirates Forum, grown with new content and feature updates, and been promoted through hil(arrr)rious animations and its very own line of merchandise.

“Plunder Pirates has received fantastic support from the community and top YouTube content creators of the likes of GAMINGwithMOLT and Nickatnyte since the iOS launch late last year. In return, we’ve taken user and community feedback on board and are thrilled to share the game with the wider Android community,” said Wilhelm Taht, Head of External Products from Rovio Entertainment. “We are very proud of the stunning 3D graphics and endless adventures we and the Midoki team have added to Plunder Pirates. We think it’s one of the best looking combat strategy games on mobile out there and hope users have as much fun plundering treasures and fighting pirates as we did adding features and content.”

"With such a fantastic start on iOS it’s great to bring Plunder Pirates to a whole new audience on the Android platform," said Chris Gage, Director at Midoki. "Driven on by our amazing community, the team has been pushing hard with new features and improvements to existing ones to give our Captains the best pirating experience imaginable. And with so many new players joining us on the high seas it’s only going to get even better".

The Plunder Pirates gameplay offers players the chance to build, battle and plunder rival Captain’s loot with a crew of battle hardened pirates. Players can choose to explore unchartered waters alone, or train up their own pirate crew and get even more rewards through competitive multiplayer battles. The game features striking 3D graphics, and is the only mobile strategy game with dynamic PlunderCam™technology that allows players to zoom, swivel and manipulate the game camera within a fully rendered 3D environment.
