River Simulator 2012: Inland Waterway Transport

Open the Mac App Store to buy and download apps.
Waiting is over: astragon is proud to announce the sequel to their popular Ship-Simulator. In this simulation you will be able to explore German rivers like the Rhine and Main with several types of ships and experience a clear focus on technical details and realism – the main competences of the developer team weltenbauer.
In this elaborate simulation you get behind the wheel of seven different inland waterway ships and other vehicles made for transport on water, such as container ships or ferries, and accomplish divergent missions. Your missions will include moving liquids with a tanker ship or handling various maneuvers with a push boat.
The experience of a never before seen complexity of scenery will excite you. Sail along the Main from Frankfurt to Mayence up to the Dutch border and enjoy the elaborate and realistically rebuild, romantic Rhine-valley. You might even see the Cologne cathedral!
Next to „sightseeing“, you can also play challenging missions. You wpould like to focuse on difficult maneuvers in the harbor? For this purpose, an autopilot takes over the steering along the rivers. Every successfully accomplished mission gets you experience-points, which can be invested in new, better ships.
And if this game makes you look for more challenges, you will be able to create and integrate your own ships through a convenient web interface. Only the end of the river and your fantasy are the limits.

I like it so far. I'm playing it on an 11.6 inch 2011 model MacBook air with a 128GB SSD 4GB RAM And an intel core i5 1.6Ghz. It does a great Job handling it! It is a fun game and a good simulation. The ONLY thing that I don't like it when you are delivering cargo on the large cargo ships. You have to travel extremely far for extremely long to even pick up the load even at the speed x10. Also I would like it if they added cruise ships. :) I feel bad for you if you have a 15in MacBook Pro with retina because based on other reviews I'm with the understanding that it won't work properly. So Overall I'm giving in 4 stars. I would recommend this app to people who don't have a 15inch MacBook Pro with retina, and for people who like simulators.
this game works great on my 2013 macbook air 1.3 GHz and 4GB of Ram this game has impressive graphics and a working ship cockpit, but for 20 dollars you just get get 7 ships not really any weather conditions so I would not tell a friend about this until there is at least 15 ships .if you want a good simulator save up a bit longer and by ship simulator extremes
this game is fun and is now working for me but there is nothing to do now because i beat the game, they need to update it and add new ships and missions. They should add cruise ships too. please make an update.
