100013Coast Guard [App Store] is yet another fun nautical-themed game with controls similar to the other games in the Flight Control [App Store] spin-off genre. (Is that really a genre now?)

The goal of the game is to move your ship by drawing lines on the screen, and sink the enemies that are attacking incoming supply ships. Tapping on hostile ships fires at them, and as every friendly ship successfully docks, one of several power ups appear nearby. Rinse and repeat until your ship sustains enough damage to sink, hopefully beat your high score, and try again.

AppBank posted a gameplay video:

There's no indication as to how long the price drop will last, but at the current price of free, there's no reason to not download Coast Guard.

App Store Link: Coast Guard, Free

Update: The price may not have dropped to Free in all stores just yet. Be sure to look before you click Buy. If not, try again later.

    For pure "docking" path games, I'm glad to have the original, Flight Control.

    But this looks like something different, with the combat aspect.

    Now... what to delete on my phone to make room?

    Maybe it was just an accidental glitch?

    It's showing up for FREE in the search results, however when I go to the detail page to order it, it switches to $0.99. This happens when using the iTunes software as well as the iPhone. Is this bait and switch? Will I get charged if I click on the $0.99 "Buy App" link if the results inconsistently state "Free"? Weird.

    Coast Guard is showing up in App Store Search as "FREE", but $0.99 on the product page (will likely charge if downloaded). Wonder if this might take a few hours for the price drop to take effect...

  • matthelm

    tried to download and then said, app is in process of being modified. so i thinks that it will be free soon...

    I used iTunes and clicked on the "Get App" button near the "FREE" text (and took a couple screenshots). After purchasing, I checked my invoice online and it was listed as free. I wonder if I would have been charged $0.99 if I clicked on the detail page button where the price was clearly displayed as $0.99.

    Weird that the US store as a whole isn't even in sync from place to place. But yes, it's free now for me and it all went through just fine :)

    (Tiny download too!)

    This games pretty cool. A lot like the pirate bay defense game but free xD

    • Lord Gek

      While Battle at Pirates Bay would be the most obvious comparison, it plays a little differently since you are BOTH defending yourself and these slow moving ships. So there isn't any "waiting to interdict baddies approaching the base", you need to constantly be on the move.

      • backtothis

        ah yes i guess that's true. well i dont think you can really compare it to anything then! xD

    Got it for free but prefer flight control and harbor master. Moving around my ship attacking feels less strategic than managing multiple cargo ships. FC feels more rewarding and relaxing while the difficulty quickly increases but in this game you just jump right into the chaos which I don't like.

  • rjb

    yeah, hes playing a crazy game on the youtube post.. if the supply ships dock.. you can get pick ups to help.
    maybe he was in a kill frenzy, from the lack of death in flight control and harbour master...etc and didnt see the dont shoot me signs... or maybe appbanks a japanese site and he doesnt read english.. who knows.
