Freight shipping company management simulator.
Ranked in these QuestionsQuestion Ranking
Pro "Empire-building" feeling
Start with one ship and upgrade to manage a whole fleet. By slowly growing ones business the game simulates building a shipping empire.
Pro Numerous ports, each with their own feel
Each port in the game looks and feels different, just as they would in the real world, which gives a sense of originality as well as a feeling of progress in the game due to new environments.
Con Limited route planning
Shipping on an international scale differs from a lot of the single-city transport management games where specific routes must be constructed. Rather, you pick start and end points for individual journeys focusing on things like fuel and delivery time and then each ship follows the only possible path.
As your fleet grows, having to select each destination and cargo for each journey of each boat could become tiresome. Compared to the set-it-and-forget it approach of route planning in other games. This may be time consuming for some players who would rather focus on the main aspects of the game.
