I said Harbor Master.

The reason being that each of the 3 stages adds something very different to the game

The other big reason is that your stats are saved to imangi's server. If you delete the app (in a sudden onset of stupidity) you can re download it and have all your stats back

In FC I lost all my data when I got the 3.0 GM build and it reset all my scores... INCLUDING those on cloudcell.

nah, we all knew this was coming... i said harbor master also, for mainly the same reason as VegantTnT... each stage is really different, and challenging in different ways. you have to guide the ships in AND out (while also waiting for the ships to unload) which makes it a lot more challenging.

whoever said taxidrive is a moron

Imangi did a great job with Harbor Master.

Far more depth than the original release of Flight Control. Harbor Master still has more depth than the recently updated Flight Control.

I said Harbor Master as well. I played it for a while and went back to Flight Control and while that was still great I found myself wanting to go back to Harbor Master. I'm sure Firemint will do a Flight Control 2 and will raise the stakes even more

Flight Control started this new genre of games, so you've gotta go with the original.

I disagree, Flight Control started it but Harbour Master has improved on the formula significantly so my vote goes to that.

I voted Flight Control just cause its now the OG game, it did start the genre for the app store. You cant disagree with that. Harbor Master may of...mastered...the genre, but I think credit goes to FC (the developers of HM were influenced deeply by FC).

Harbor Master does look like a great game nonetheless

harbor master---

Love the devs- they are very active on the forums- and the game has many we elements... Pit them in ports and guide them out, color coded ports, boats with multiple amounts of cargo that takes longer to unload and move slower..
