Not that impressive In all honesty, ya can't expect much for a $2.00 app. I started to play the game and it functions ok, but it quickly grew repetitive. What would be cool is if it had a cockpit view with a split screen showing your mast's tell-tails. Maybe another split screen showing course heading and such. And MORE competitors! I would pay 5 times the original price for that.
Relax..Kickback..Play this game I downloaded this game about 2 months ago. The new version 2 is great and has shifts on both sides of the course. I have asked the mainsheet guy on the boat to download it. I play it when I need to de-stress, as like real sailing you can't be thinking of anything else. Great game I LOVE it
Doesn't get basic racing rules correct. When in a favorable position against opponent we were nearing the lay line the opponent called for room and the game faulted me when I didn't give him room and forced him to over stand the mark. Room is only allowed for marks and hazards, not lay lines!
Poor simulator Only has short right shifts so no use for head up on port tack and no use for bear off on starboard. Even when you're in the right (ie. tacking when approaching a boundary) the AI still wins the rule!? AI can also tack quicker or reverse direction in a tack whereas player can not - you have to wait until tack is completed. Silly cloud overlay graphic doesn't scroll as you move up the map and is distracting. Screen doesn't centre on your boat when you split tack only zooms out. Make it more challenging!
Good concept poor excecution Great to have some nice sailing games out there, this needs a lot of work to be a compelling game. Shifts seem to hit the player far worse then the opponent as well as the tackin manouvre is slower fo the player. Some basic sailing rules errors as well as collisions when clearly passing astern.
