    Just been playing it - didn't think I'd like the proposed full-screen option, but in fact I love it!

    This is, by far and away, my most played iPhone game - it's absolutely great. Shame it hasn't been bought/played more in Britain. I'm the only Brit on the High Score tables.

    I'm still playing my very first game, from months ago - so I'm still on the 'economic only' game. Once I've had enough of that, I will start a 'sim' game.

    Rdklein - would it be possible to have a toggle to turn on/off the canal charges message? Not the charges, just the message. Although, with the new speed improvement, it is quicker at 'printing out'.

    Are you thinking of porting the newer PoC to iPhone?

    Yes I forgot to document, just click on the telegram and the whole message appears immediatly.

    and yes we plan to port the xxl version, e.g. it will be come a new one. But that might take a little bit (we need some manpower before).

    hope all like it, it was most requested. I think the solution with the gamepad like device solved the problem we had at the first implementation with steering control.
    I think about a 2d sim highscore or the fastes steering per berth and harbour !

    I still have some promocodes if you like to write a review on the new version:)

    we always get request to redesign the whole screens -- yes but it wil become a sequel as also new ideas from our pocxxl needs to be implemented.

    As pocxxl is a real big thing to implement (development was over several years) we need fundings and this might take a while and depends on the successs of current game titles we have (e.g. poc only at the moment).
    So POC is not doing to bad once it climbed up (was #3 over all games in Daenemark or #2 for a while in Norwegian), it is difficult to get the awareness.

    Personally I like the classic graphics, though a redesigned sequel would definitely be interesting
