Harbor Master Ep5: Monster Cove is Out

EDIT - Update out!

You've fought off the cyclones, pirates, and pygmies. Are you ready to slay some monsters?



The monsters live at the docks and like to emerge from the muddy depths to capture a docked ship, or just to take over an empty dock. You will need strength, stamina, and a quick eye to scare off the tentacled beast. Tap on it many times to send it slithering back into the murky waters and free up your dock.

Monster Cove is tough, but you have a strategic advantage - the dock on the right unloads 4 times as fast as normal docks. Send your big ships there to get them out faster!

Wouldn't it be silly monsters, harbors are for boats?

that's probably right

It's saying all my apps are up to date though

If at first you don't succeed... you have 2 more lives to get it right!

Pretty sure it's just an announcement, it's not actually out yet.

Nice! So should we assume then that the dock on the right also spawns 4 times as many monsters than the other docks?

I'm pretty sure this is an upcoming update, not one that has been released yet.

Sounds like the best update so far!

Good luck!

Just saying, would it be possible to adapt all harbors to there special mechanics? Such as have a pirate mode, a coloured port mode and a monster mode that can be flicked on, and to make it challenging even mix the modes up? Any included mode wouldn't allow you to save a high score, but still would be cool.

Two two TWO new twists in one map, NIIICE!

While reskins to other popular games are fun, I'm a much bigger fan of new twists to gameplay.

If you could ever work a reskin WITH a new map/mechanic, even better.

So is it safe to assume if a monster fully envelopes a boat it's all over?
