Boat Simulator

Boat Simulator

Being on a boat is a fun activity for most people but unfortunately you need resources that are often scarce – time, money and access to, at least, a lake. Well, if you can’t be on a real boat, you can try to see what it looks like by downloading a simulator. This is what we did, although we have to admit, we did it by accident.

Yes, we were visiting Google Play not so long ago, when an app called Boat Simulator popped up. It looked interesting so we decided to give it a try and see what it is to be on a boat and manage it. The installation process was nothing special and in a few seconds we were ready to run and test the app. Unfortunately it was, again, one of the fake Android apps that pretend they are something that they are not.

Well, Boat Simulator does not simulate a boat. Instead it shows tens and tens of small-sized boxes on the display of your Android device and once you tap on a box, you can see a small image of a sea vessel for a fraction of a second. Click on neighboring boxes and combine two images of the same kind to make them stay open. Then open all boxes and you have completed the level. Perhaps we should not say at all that everything is in 2D and there isn’t that much of a sound atmosphere either.

To be honest, Boat Simulator is not a bad game. In fact it can be a perfect time-killing app. In this role we can recommend the game as a simple puzzle app. But as a boat simulator it completely fails and it even made us angry for a while because we felt we were lied to. Even the app picture is misleading. The authors of the game should seriously reconsider their approach to Google Play users, a fact that is also true for the person who approved Boat Simulator before the app went live on Google Play.

The game is available here.
