Sid Meier's Pirates! On the ZX Spectrum? Well sort of

It is incredible to think that the original Sid Meier's retro gaming hit of 'Pirates!', from way back in the late 80's can still be played today and enjoyed by people of all ages. It had you sailing your very own ship such as a fast sloop, capturing other ships, looking for treasure, sword fighting on deck, and marrying a rather pretty lady! The problem was however, that even though it was highly addictive and appeared on the Amiga, Amiga CD32, Apple II/IIGS, Atari ST, Commodore 64, Amstrad CPC and many others, it did not appear on the ZX Spectrum. So an artist by the name of 4thRock has done a what if of Pirates!, with images converted over to the ZX Spectrum!

To be honest considering the awful colour clash in the last picture, the game if it actually happened looking like that would still be decent enough to play. I especially like the middle picture with the sword fight going on in the town centre and the first picture with the fire red sails. So what do you think? Would you play Pirates! on the ZX Spectrum if it looked like this?
