King Of Seas Review

17th February 2022


Team 17

King of Seas is an ARPG adventure game set in a nautical pirate world. Embark on an epic adventure across the seven seas where you’ll discover lost islands and treasures, fight rival pirates and menacing monsters, and become the most legendary pirate of all time!

At its core, King of Seas is a story driven pirate RPG and a great little indie title. Set in a fantasy pirate world and whilst at first glance the art-style and cover art may make it look like Sea of Thieves clone, it’s definitely not. King of Seas stands out with its brilliant ship-to-ship combat. Defeating enemies by dodging and trying to aim your own shots with the cannons is brilliant.

It’s a single-player navel combat RPG with a strong main story, side quests, a talent tree, special abilities, and more. The skills are extremely fun to use and play around with, including explosives barrels, fireworks that explode and damage anything in their vicinity, and even trained sharks you can fire to attack your enemies. The open world of King of Seas is procedural, allowing you to keep guessing what’s round the corner.

Although the game was first released on PC, in my opinion it really shines on the Nintendo Switch as a couch passive game. It has beautiful familiar Sea of Thieves graphics and isn’t as grindy as you’d expect. The game really picks up once you start levelling up and taking over ports.

Lackluster Soundtrack

3DClouds is only a small studio but I think they’ve done a good job with King of Seas and its nice to see frequent updates. They have recently launched a new DLC Monster update with some minor bug fixes. Not that I could find bugs in my playthrough. King of Seas is extremely polished for an indie release. I couldn’t find a bug – and I’ll often break every game!

Overall, King of Seas is a fantastic addition to the pirate genre. I’d like to see King of Seas 2 with online multiplayer with co-op questions and pvp battles, oh and voices for the characters. 3DClouds isn’t attempting to re-invent the pirate wheel but they are exceedingly good at creating a solid naval combat RPG. If you love pirate games, this game is absolutely worth full price. If you are looking for a cheaper copy head over to Use our 5% discount “BNQ” code for a little extra saving.
