After what seemed like an eternity, Imangi Studios is finally back to updating their highly popular line-drawing game Harbor Master. The new set of features contained within v1.6 should be enough to put this one back on your radar. Harbor Master is a line-drawing game that requires you to direct ships in and out of busy harbors in order to deliver some very precious cargo. The game had been updated quite often over its first two months of availability with new maps, gameplay twists, and even pygmies. But over the last month or so the updates tapered off, leaving us wanting more. Apparently Imangi Studios is back from wherever they had gone and have updated Harbor Master to v1.6. Harbor Master v1.6 adds Bluetooth multiplayer, a fast forward button, and the ability toggle auto-docking. The new multiplayer mode adds a very strategic element to the game. In it you will be required to dock ships just as you normally would, but when you send them off your screen they appear in the same position on your opponent's screen with a full load of cargo. If you are clever enough, you may be able to use this to your advantage by holding some ships back or making them all enter through different areas. So, it's time to get back on that horse and start playing Harbor Master again. If for some odd reason you have been holding off on this one, there is no better time than the present to give it a try since it is now fully loaded with features and still available for the low price of $.99.
