Ratings and Reviews
Great game, 3D interface could use some work
I’ve had the game for about two months now and love it. I’ve found that the credit system is very fair in that you can pay for good sails or race a few times to accumulate credits for better sails. Additionally, the dynamics and look of the game is among the best in the App Store. I’m in sailing for the nature and beauty so the only adjustments I want are in regard to the 3D interface, a relatively small yet important part of the game: 1) land masses do not ever appear even if you’ve literally run aground, so that takes a level of authenticity away from the game, 2) the graphics of the interaction between the water and the boat could use a little work, 3) the sails are completely static (they don’t blow in the wind) so again, takes away from authenticity, and 4) I would love to see more customization options with regard to the boat, such as pennants, ensigns and names. That being said, the developers regularly update the game and I’m sure they’ll eventually get around to the 3D interface, so I highly recommend this game and will certainly change this to a five star review when they fix the issues mentioned above!
Very Cool, but keep improving!
I have enjoyed the thought process and strategies involved in participating. I like that you can compare yourself to the Volvo Boats, your own club racers, city, state, nation and world. I like showing friends the 3D pics of the boat in action. My class thought I was navigating a real boat in the night view when down under.
The algorithms need a little work. I have seen some boats sail right over islands with no repercussions while I have been set back on shore after clearing islands costing me 2000 places at times. I realize it is all just fun but when you invest some time into your race it is a bummer to be screwed up by a computer glitch.
Still fun to play and it is such a metaphor for life in so many ways.
Headed on every tack
I’m to poor to pay attention every minute of a leg and keep getting headed but shifty winds near landfall should be expected. I’ve only been playing for about two hours now but it’s fairly simple to use and it’s fun. I stole the wind from my nearest competitor and expect to finish in the top 10,000. If you know how to sail this is a game for you, and if you don’t know how you’ll gain a bit of the sailing experience. It’s been said sailing is ninety-nine percent boredom followed by one percent of shear and utter panic. This app keeps you safe and dry, with racing others adding more excitement.
It’s been a about a week now and I can honestly say that in my opinion this is the best game for your phone pad or tablet.
I started off a little shaky being to hard on the tiller but I have improved somewhat and now the only complaint I have would be is with the sail configuration. When on a port tack whether beating reaching or running the headsails remain fixed on starboard, this is purely aesthetic and doesn’t make a hill of beans difference in playability, it just looks weird.
