Brunel’s ss Great Britain, the Science Museum and Aardman Animations have joined forces to make this intriguing ship building puzzle game.
Let Isambard Kingdom Brunel himself be your guide as you construct a ship to face the same challenges which the great engineer faced when designing the ss Great Britain. Your ship should be strong enough to cut through rough seas, carry as much cargo as possible, go the furthest distance and destroy opponents in tug-o-war battles.
Chose your ship’s hull material (wood or iron), engine, fuel and propulsion mechanism to overcome the challenges posed by Brunel. The better you do, the more investor confidence, and so cash, you’ll earn; giving you more funds to design bigger and more complex ships!
Become a great problem solver, just like Brunel, and take inspirations from his determination, resilience to persevere and his ability to learn from his mistakes.
● Eight ship building challenges posed by your guide, Brunel
● Discover the capabilities of iron versus wood in the construction of your ship’s hull
● Explore the difference between paddles and the screw propeller
● Earn investor confidence to get more money for bigger and more complex ships
● Learn about the design and construction of the ss Great Britain
● Find out about the history of the ss Great Britain and the challenges she overcame in her working life
● Can you build a ship to rival the ss Great Britain?

What's New in Version 1.31
Support for iOS8.
Those who do not 'like' an app for whatever reason; have to keep on giving out the same
old ruse of words accumulating un educated
clap trap towards those who do like a game, which shows a lack of understanding and denotes it is they who are boring. The spice of life is the preferred devise. Let up and just enjoy these games for what they are : just games. Continual scorning just because one does not like it, speaks volumes of a small and aggressive mind.
Fun for kids and adults
Discovered this app at the SS Great Britain exhibition in Bristol. The kids were totally engrossed and could hardly be dragged away to see the rest of the exhibition. Great to find it on the App Store.
This is the sort of game i'd love to see more of, love how it doesnt smother you with in app purchases and how brilliant it is overall
