Relax and let the sounds of the sea transport you far away. You are the Harbor Master in a busy harbor. Direct boats into the docks, watch them unload their cargo, and direct them off the screen.Your only concern is to be careful not to let the boats crash, oh and also to watch out for all the pirates, monsters, and cyclones! With seven maps to explore, each with its own twist and challenge, and Xbox LIVE leaderboards and achievements to compete on, you won’t be able to put it down! The list below shows you the name of every location and the unique challenges you’ll face when visiting them!

- Fishing Bay – A peaceful harbor to get you started.

- Cyclone Island – Careful, cyclones spin your ships around!

- Sturgeon Creek – Make sure the right cargo goes to the right port.

- Cannon Beach – Can you fight off the pirates with your trusty cannon?

- Smugglers’ Reef – Help the smugglers unload their loot in the right port. How well can you multitask?

- Monster Cove – There’s word that monsters haunt this harbor…

    Way to go with associating “Windows Phone” with the dead ‘n buried “Windows Mobile”.

    Pro Tip #3: Don’t plug in your wife’s iPhone while typing up AWESOME reply to post or iTunes might crash your computer :( :(.

    But seriously, love this game, bought it when it first came out on Windows Phone and have played it on and off since then. It’s a great “in between” game game. I usually play a game start to finish when I get it(ie Battlewagon) and then before I play another game, I’ll go back to a game like harbor master and get another achievement or something, its a great game that way, no story, no hard controls to get re-aquinated with again, so its a nice game to recharge with before starting another one. Not much going on with the game, but I still recomend it to anyone.
