Prepare to set sail on a seafaring adventure! Live the life of a young sailor aboard USS Constitution, "Old Ironsides," during the War of 1812. Haul on lines, vanquish varmints, and steer the ship through dangerous waters. Spend your evenings telling tall tales to your messmates. Do a good job and eventually you’ll captain your own gun crew in battle!

Fun and easy game!
This game compliments the USS Constitution Museum experience well. It is fun and educational. I recommend it particularly to parents who are coming to Boston, as it'd be pretty neat for a kid to play a game about the ship and then see it in real life!
I didn't think I'd like this game, but it is really fun and introduces a lot of sailing ship information in a very accessible way.
Fun for all ages!
This app is perfect for all ages. There was a few kinks earlier with iOS7 but they seem to be worked out now. I highly suggest to familes. Kids can play on there own or you can download activities for continued learning with friends and family. The fun never seems to stop! What a perfect way to make history come to life.
