Introducing Tempest - Herocraft's Upcoming Pirate Game

Posted by Jessica Fisher on September 10th, 2014

HeroCraft has announced that they are working on a new game, called Tempest. It will be a free-to-play pirate RPG, coming out later this year.

Tempest is centered around seizing merchant ships, attacking sea forts, and battling warships. Each ship has different battle tactics and can be customized from the flag to the figurehead. Players will be able to equip their ship with a variety of weapons such as cannons, mortars, and even flame throwers.

There will be quests that require magic artifacts and will pit the player against fearsome foes like the Kraken. If that wasn't enough, you will also be able to play in co-op multiplayer combat. Players on mobile devices and PC owners will be able to play against each other in these exciting sea battles.

So don your best Captain's hat and strap on a parrot, Tempest will be coming out soon for iOS.

Building Titanic Explores the Construction of the Titanic

Posted by Kevin Stout on April 2nd, 2012

It’s been 100 years since the Titanic sank (April 1912). That historic passenger liner took thousands of hours by thousands of workers to build. In apparent recognition of that tragic day in history, National Geographic has released an iPad app where users can “travel back in time” to witness the construction of the epic and tragic passenger liner.

Building Titanic allows users to control the playback timeline of the Titanic and explore the construction interactively with over 50 in-depth points of interest. The app boasts that it includes 100 “rare” photos that detail the assembly of the ship. The app includes video of the laborers that built the ship in action. Users will also have access to previews of the upcoming documentaries about the Titanic on the National Geographic Channel from James Cameron and Bob Ballard.

Building Titanic is an iPad-only app and is free on the App Store.

Keep Watch On Nearby Boats With Boat Beacon

+ Universal App - Designed for iPhone and iPad

Boat Beacon - AIS Marine Navigation has recently been released on the App Store and for seafarers, this is the perfect app to pick up.

The app offers a form of tracking that, like an AIS transponder, enables users to see each other and their boats out at sea. Using Boat Beacon maps and global AIS systems like AIS Hub, Marine Traffic and Shipfinder, users can keep watch of what's going on around them without any need for external AIS transponder equipment.

While it's not a transponder so users won't be visible to other ships on their AIS systems, Boat Beacon - AIS Marine Navigation is an ideal backup plus it has the added benefit of being usable by friends and family to check that all is well at sea. There's even Ship to Ship instant messaging through the app.

A specialist app for sure, Boat Beacon - AIS Marine Navigation is worth checking out for any seafarers out there that want some extra visibility.
