Rhumb Line 1.1: shooting game for iPhone

Ethan Nicholas of Naughty Bits Software, the publisher of iShoot, the #1 iPhone game in January 2009, developed an Apple iPhone and iPod Touch app. of the popular Rhumb Line board game from Games Above Board.

Rhumb Line features two player competitive play, or three levels of computer difficulty for solo action, as well as a bright Caribbean sound-scape and clean animation.

Rhumb Line is a nautical game based on ancient mariner history, seafaring lore and pastimes.
The object is to out-navigate the opposition to achieve victory.
Three ways to score on the compass rose game board and a twist in the tail to turn the tide and rule the waves.

Taking turns, nuggets are placed, one at a time, building and/or blocking point-scoring rhumb line combinations: 4 same-color nuggets in a radius is 10 points, an arc 20 points and a spiral 30 points.
More than one combination may be scored at a time.

Toward the end, and to avoid a foregone conclusion, players remove any one of their nuggets (once only) and, on their next turn, place it somewhere else on the board.
Throughout the game, the score is kept on the players’ end of the board and, when the board is full, the player with the most points is the winner.
