Gameplay

Port City: Ship Tycoon Review
Discover and collect ships!

If you’re a big fan of ships, you’re going to want to play this game! Meanwhile discover and collect famous real-life ships, transport your ships, build bigger and better transport facilities and docks to fit more ships, and explore new global regions as your ships travel; the seas through bridges and islands.

Secondly, as I’m personally not a fan of ships, fake or real, I don’t really understand the appeal of the gameplay. However, I can definitely understand why some would!

Graphics

Port City: Ship Tycoon Review
The graphics are great!

I didn’t expect the graphics to be as good as they are but they’re brilliant looking and add a lot to the gameplay. The ships are well detailed along with the characters and destinations around the regions.

Music & Sounds

Unfortunately, the audio is pretty generic, however, the game is fine in itself. You could easily play this completely muted and it wouldn’t affect the gameplay at all.

If you do play this game, I do suggest muted as the music is very repetitive and can get annoying after some time.

Controls

Port City: Ship Tycoon Review
Tap to control!

The controls are fairly simple as all you need to do is tap on the action you want the ship to perform. For example, tap the ship to get coal from a coal mine. It really is as simple as that!

The Verdict

Port City: Ship Tycoon Review
What did you think?!

To sum up, Port City: Ship Tycoon is a great game, but the target audience is very niche. If you don’t care for ships or games that are going to make you wait around then I don’t recommend this game. However, if you do, you might just enjoy this!

In other words, don’t bother with this game unless you think it might be your thing!
