Harbor Master is a similar game to Flight Control, a touchscreen classic with gameplay thatís well l suited to the device. Itís a line drawing simulation game in which you have to safely dock ships into harbour, and then navigate them back out to sea. As you progress through the game youíll get bigger ships, more complicated docking requirements, and even cyclones or pirates.

The concept of the game is really simple, and it's easy to pick up for all ages. I love the cute graphics, and it has a perky soundtrack that dingles away in the background. The basic port isn't very exciting, so I did find myself quickly moving on to the additional ports. Docking the ships is easier than landing planes in Flight Control, because you don't need to worry so much about helicopters, fast jets, and big jumbos. However this doesn't affect the overall difficulty of the game. As you can see from my screenshots, there's still plenty of opportunities for crashing with speedy little boats having no space to dock because the huge super-tankers are taking too long.

There are plenty of achievements to work towards, which is good for keeping interest of players like me. I'm a big fan of achievements (love the sound of a trophy dropping on my PS3!), and games like this do need them to stop them becoming too repetitive.

In summary, this is a well-executed line-drawing game that has a lot of fans. It's a free game, so it is well worth downloading.
