Tropico 2: Pirate Cove
Though much of it is based off the original Tropico, the game is played much differently. You run a pirate island, and as the Pirate King, you must keep the pirates happy, and yet steal as much booty as possible. Workers, called captives, are taken on raids or from shipwrecks off your island. They are the lifeblood of your economy, and all construction and production is done by their hands. They can take on whatever job is available, including farmer, cigar manufacturer, shipwright, or can even be promoted to a pirate.
To keep captives happy you need to enstill order on the island. The problem is that pirates like anarchy, the exact opposite of order. You also need to keep the captives afraid, so live in fear of you, and will not run away or escape the island. Pirate ships may be built at docks, and are used to plunder other islands or board enemy ships to steal gold with which you can build a greater pirate base. There are also several challenging scenarios in which you try to survive in harsh environments, from angry pirates to escaping captives.
