GameStop, Inc.

Prove how business-savvy  you are with Uwe Rosenberg’s latest game, Le Havre: The Inland Port on mobile devices. The app is a conversion of the award-winning board game and allows players to compete against others on a worldwide cross-platform leaderboard. Players will compete to become the richest harbormaster by acquiring resources, constructing buildings, and score the total value of their buildings and money.

Each round, or “day,” a new set of buildings is added to the market. From there, players can choose to build or use an existing building’s effect. Building will requires certain amount of money and resources, but in turn the player will be able to manipulate their resources to their advantage. Players will have to optimize and combine the effects of the buildings to max out the capacity of their warehouses. It is possible to even use the enemy’s buildings, but players will have to pay a certain price to do so.

The game has some very beautiful artwork and sound that perfectly convey a French harbor atmosphere. The controls are easy to learn and I have yet to experience any lag within the game itself. If players have no connection to the internet, they can also play against computers of different difficulty levels.

The game is a little difficult to understand at first, but the game provides a great tutorial and only takes a round or two to get used to. Le Havre stands out from most mobile games because of the amount of strategy players have to put in to win the game. The game is perfect for people that love to do business, bargain, and figure out the best way to do a task.

IMG_4167The biggest issue I had with the game was logging in on an Android phone. I was unable to play against a friend and we have yet to discover the source of the problem. Hopefully this issue will be resolved within the next update. Other than that, I greatly enjoyed the game. It’s refreshing from most games where players just swipe or tap and requires some strategy and savvy to win.

Think you have what it takes to become the richest harbormaster? Head on over to your local app store and download Le Havre: The Inland Port for your mobile device, but try not to go bankrupt.

The Verdict

While complicated at first, the game teaches the basics of economics to players. Supply and demand is the theme and players will demand more games like this.
