UBOOT | Maven Games
Captain Sonar is one of my favourite games. I love team games and the idea of sailing around in a submarine and trying to blow up the enemy’s submarine really appeals. It’s very light-hearted though (and pretty frantic!), with crew activities having little to do with actual submarines. So when I heard about UBOOT (pronounced U-Boat), a gritty, realistic take on submarine warfare using an app, I was more than intrigued! It was on Kickstarter last year and I backed it immediately. It arrived a couple of weeks ago, but much to everyone’s dismay, the app wasn’t ready yet! So we waited and waited, until finally the Android version became available last weekend (the iOS version still isn’t available at the time of writing, but hopefully that will be fixed soon). I set it up and played it solo as soon as I could. Then I played it some more. Then I played it with my son. Then I played it at my weekly game night. I’ve played it every chance I could get. And you know which game I want to play more than any other right now? UBOOT. Let me tell you why… I never tend to enjoy...
