iPad App of the Week - Harbor Master HD

It's hypnotic, it's relaxing, it's challenging, and it's free!

You need to give this one a try. It is the perfect use of the iPad interface, guding ships to docks to unload their cargo. The HD version, iPad only, allows for in-game purchases of additional game maps - I got one which adds the challenge of The Kraken pulling your ships to a watery death (the one it comes with is fun and challenging enough to keep you going for hours or months), and you have the option of purchasing "rewinds" which allow you to turn back time if you get in trouble. You can also earn rewinds just by playing, so I think of purchasing them as cheating, but I won't hold it against you if you buy some - hopefully it will encourage Imangi Studios to develop more great games like this.
