Ports of Call Ad Blurbs (DOS)
Advertising BlurbsGoogle Play description (Android):
Finally Ports Of Call the classic trade simulation game from the Amiga time made it onto Android devices. We tried to be as close as possible to the orginal (its really the SAME kernel code), in terms of original grafic and behavior. We added some helpful features, as the new joystick control for navigating in the shipsimulator and for the radar collision system. We also added some keyboard support when a keyboard is not available. Save, Load, Help and New is available using the Android MENU item. We tested the game on different devices, also very small ones. The buttons are sometimes small, but you will get used to them, but therefore we were able to use our original grafics with the typical AMIGA look. We provided an intro and tutorial video.
The App supports 10 different languages which can be selected when starting the game (English, French, Netherland, Norwegian, Italien, Spanish, Finish, Swedish, Daenish, Portugais and German). Any suggestions are welcome please write us.
Some hints on comments and the EXIT function of the program. Please use the HOME button to exit the application. We didnt provide an extra EXIT button to terminate the program, as the Android System recommends not to terminate the program ourself instead let do the Android System the termination if necessary. This is to have a full compatible system and keep the OS in a stable condition. We prefere a stable system left to the user instead of doing some hacks on this -- if you really need to kill the App, use the END program function of the Android Application manager, so you dont need to reboot the Phone.
features in the last rev 1.3:
1. Backspace also can be used as the OK button, to LOAD the ship in the captains wall and to START or STOP the simulation in the main screen.
2. Buttons - User Interaction. New algorithm for handling all buttons. Now a radius region is searched, which gives a much better response. Better behavior at the border.
3. bug fix for sound not terminating when the program is exit (e.g. paused).
4. Fixed problem with the timeout message and text.
Please also write an email if you have error messages or problems.
We want to help quickly, but you need to write an email to us with details. The comment section is a bad place as we cannot reply or ask questions on the problem. We really want to help.
