App description: Now you are the captain of the Titanic! Your job is to sail as far as possible on the endless North Atlantic Ocean while surrounded by dangerous icebergs. Ride over the floating boxes and you will get different tools. Some can repair your ship, some can drain out the water in the cabin, some can accelerate or decelerate the ship, but others may damage your ship as well. When 50% of the ship suffers damage, it will sink unavoidably. Are you a good captain?

The RMS Titanic was an Olympic-class passenger liner owned by the White Star Line and was built at the Harland and Wolff shipyard in Belfast, in what is now Northern Ireland. At the time of her construction, she was the largest passenger steamship in the world.
Shortly before midnight on 14 April 1912, four days into the ship's maiden voyage, Titanic struck an iceberg and sank two hours and forty minutes later, early on 15 April 1912. The sinking resulted in the deaths of 1,517 of the 2,223 people on board, making it one of the deadliest peacetime maritime disasters in history. The high casualty rate was due in part to the fact that, although complying with the regulations of the time, the ship did not carry enough lifeboats for everyone aboard. The ship had a total lifeboat capacity of 1,178 people, although her maximum capacity was 3,547. A disproportionate number of men died due to the women and children first protocol that was followed.
The Titanic was designed by some of the most experienced engineers, and used some of the most advanced technologies available at the time. It was popularly believed to have been unsinkable. It was a great shock to many that, despite the extensive safety features, the Titanic sank. The frenzy on the part of the media about Titanic's famous victims, the legends about the sinking, the resulting changes to maritime law, and the discovery of the wreck have contributed to the continuing interest in, and notoriety of, the Titanic.

Possibly, I looked at this with interest earlier on the UK iTunes and all the text in game and the description was in Japanese so I passed. Hopefully that will have all been updated by tonight.
