I don't generally get past the LEGO aisle in Toys'R'Us, so Playmobil is nothing but a distant childhood memory to me. Were I to venture to the other side of the brick section, I would likely see something very similar to what Gameloft is releasing tomorrow with Playmobil Pirates for iOS and Android.

Create a pirate camp, manage your pirate crew, play mini-games and visit your friends. Playmobil is pretty much getting a treatment similar to what Gameloft has given its other toy properties, My Little Pony and Littlest Pet Shop, only this time I don't have to feel so bad playing it in public because hey, it's pirates. Pirates were cool a few years back, and I am an old man that can afford to be behind the times. Everybody wins. Well, I win, and that's everybody as far as I am concerned.

Playmobil Pirates will hit iTunes tomorrow morning, with an Android version following soon after.
