German developer Digidiced has announced that Le Havre: The Inland Port is now available on iOS and Android.
A faithful translation of the board game, the mobile version of Le Havre: The Inland Port retains all of the gritty strategy, resource management, and harbor-building mechanics players loved in the game’s original incarnation.
In Le Havre: The Inland Port, you and your opponent (a rival harbormaster) have 12 days to build the richest port in the French commune of Le Havre. Players must use their resources (Grain, Lumber, Fish, and Clay) strategically to build structures from a shared building pool to see who can earn the most Francs. Although each building in Le Havre: The Inland Port can be sold for Francs, strategically-minded players can activate a building’s special ability and earn more.
Resources are stored in a warehouse good for building — or for converting into Francs if you’re so inclined. Every move is a calculated risk; you only get to make one action per turn, and you never know what the opposition is planning. In fact, how you make money is completely up to you: Do you build expensive buildings that have big rewards? Do you stockpile resources and activate your building’s abilities for the ultimate payout? Or do you buy as many buildings as you can to prevent your opponents from taking the lead?
Le Havre: The Inland Port also includes a robust multiplayer mode. When you’ve beaten the AI, you can go online for a real challenge. With support for several simultaneous asynchronous games, Le Havre: The Inland Port stays true to the board game’s two-player competitive focus. Make a name for yourself — and you may just end up at the top of the global, cross-platform leaderboards!
Felix Dreyfus (CEO, Digidiced):
“We absolutely love board games. However, we don’t all have the time (or the room!) to get friends together for a game like we used to when we were kids. When we were given the opportunity to bring one of Uwe Rosenberg’s award-winning titles to mobile devices, we jumped at the chance. We’re confident that board game fans will appreciate this deliberate, careful adaptation of Le Havre: The Inland Port.”
