Good fun without blood and gore!
If you crave mind-warping, stressful games with over-the-top graphics that will rival PS3, this isn't that game. What it does is provide that simple break during those stress-filled, mind melting corporate meetings or test-cramming sessions. Yes, it will allow you to compare yourself with other alpha-types because it counts the number of loads you deliver. And there are a couple of interfering problems other than just the escalating number of boats for you folks that crave third-party intervention in the form of a storm or a cannon.
I've asked my son if his company was ever going to do something like this and have been told "not likely." So the big 3 don't see it my way and continue their love-affair with the bang-bang shoot 'em ups. I've played it numerous times and it continues to be fun.
Now, how about someone creating a boat racing app along the idea of the Olympics events, Whitbread, and America's Cup races. It could offer multi-player racing or single player against a computer-generated foe (America's Cup is one-on-one while the others depend on venue).
Don't bother downloading
The app is broken in a major way, and the developers refuse to address/correct the problem. Every few games - perhaps a dozen, maybe 15 games - the app just stops responding to touch. You can tap ANYWHERE, ANYTHING in the game, to no avail. You can't pause, resume, Play Again, Go Back.... NOTHING. Closing/Restarting the app does nothing; turning your phone off/on does nothing. The only workaround (if such it can be called?!) is to completely delete the app, then re-download/reinstall it...meaning loss of your high scores, progress, etc.
In addition to that "minor" flaw, the developer has seen fit to insert the occasional "oopsie", where your departing vessel is almost completely off-screen when it suddenly rams into a just-appeared-out-of-nowhere boat, thus ending the game with no chance to even maneuver out of the collision (since it happened off the edge of the screen).
Graphics are good, the music is cute, the sounds are fun, the challenge is great... But it's useless when you can't even play the game. Don't waste your time downloading this; you'll be sorely disappointed and frustrated as many of us are. 👎🏼👎🏼👎🏼👎🏼👎🏼
Frustrating bug kills an otherwise amazing app!
There is a bug in the game (some kind of incompatibility with Game Center on iOS) where every few days when the game is opened a blank white pop-up appears rendering the game unusable. The app completely ceases to respond - can't access settings, use any features, play/pause/resume a game, nothing. I tried everything - hard-closing the app, turning the phone on and off, etc., to no avail. The only way to "clear" the error is to delete and reinstall the app, losing all of your settings and high score data. It's incredibly frustrating having to do this at least once a week. I reached out to the developers with information and screenshots and suggestions, but they refuse to put time/effort into fixing or supporting this app, likely because it's one of the amazingly few apps that does not have ads or in-app purchases. If the bug was fixed I would have gladly paid for this app, the game itself is fun and extremely re-playable. It's unfortunate that the developers have no intent to stand behind their work, yet continue to offer the game as a download in the App Store.
