More competition for Harbor Master!

Actually looks neat and will have to probably try it out.

I wonder how long this took to develop. I recall someone suggesting that lighthouse idea in the Harbor Master Sneak Peak thread.

Oh, I didn't even catch that. So in the night levels the corridor of light will constantly rotate around? Pretty cute.

Trying it Out

It looks good enough that I will TOFTT. Will post some very initial impressions in a few.

Never played Harbor Master, but love Flight Control

OK - 5 minute impression - Awesome!!

First map that giant island in the middle? Avoid it, or die. Collisions detectors good. You get 3 lives.

Different boats with different speeds. Like a real boat, if you draw you line too close to shore, or rocks, you crash.

Night time - unlockable - has a light house with approx 30 degrees of light on either side that rotates with reasonable speed. Very cool.

Weather effects - I saw fog, light house comes on, but you can kind of see your boats, although they are not totally clear.

Trying to open the other 2 maps.

Oh - The games tells you in advnace where the boats are going, but showing a little appropriate color marker where it is appearing. not that it helps you though. It is much harder than flight control.

Great fun though. Polished. Nice sound effects. Nothing to think about if you like flight control, but I can;t tell you comparison to Harbor Master since I don't have it.
