What comes to mind when you hear the word “pirates”? Most people would think of ships, treasure, and adventures. Some people might also imagine pirates as menacing figures, but Comomola Pirates are nothing of the sort. They are friendly, adorable, and always ready for adventure.
Created by Barcelona-based developers Comomola, Comomola Pirates is an exciting game where kids go on a treasure hunt through land, sky, and sea. Along the way, they will discover lots of fun interactions, familiar characters, and exotic animals.
Collect the Keys, Find the Treasure
The treasure hunt in Comomola Pirates is split into four parts. In the first leg of the journey, you acquire a pirate companion and a treasure map before sailing to the island in the middle of the sea. When you arrive at the island, you can choose to continue your journey by boat, in air balloon, or in a submarine until you reach the treasure island.
The third leg of the journey involves trekking through a jungle to get to the treasure cave. The treasure chest is in the cave’s deepest part, so you will have to walk a bit to get to it. When you finally find the treasure, it’s time to celebrate.
Just like a real adventure, on your way to the treasure you will discover many surprises. For example, you might run into a ghost ship, fight a giant octopus, sabotage an enemy pirate airship, and many more. These interactions are triggered by simple taps, and it is advised that you try them all in order to find the keys necessary to unlock the treasure chest.
In all, the app has 10 friendly characters to choose from and 6 different settings to explore. In addition, there are 3 modes of transportation (land, sky, or sea) and countless of animals to discover.
Parents Need to Know
Comomola Pirates is a relaxing game without rules, scores, or time limit. Even when your boat is struck by lightning or rocked by high waves, for example, you can continue your journey. The open-ended gameplay makes it suitable for younger kids, but older kids who prefer some competition and challenges in their games might want to look elsewhere.
In addition to a non-competitive gameplay, the app has no third-party advertising and no in-app purchases. It works great without an Internet connection, so you can bring it to entertain your kids on road trips.

While the game has an overall linear structure, kids can make some personalized choices. For example, they can choose which pirate character they want to play with and which route they want to take. These options increase the app’s replay value and shelf life.
Another benefit of the app is it can be used to introduce kids to exotic animals. For example, kids might learn that sharks and whales live in the ocean or that toucans and monkeys can be found in the jungle. The app also has several musical activities and instruments, such as maracas and electric guitar.
