    The app seems perfect in every way, and hats off to Codito for pulling it off.

    If you're a fan of board games, you kinda owe it to yourself to pick this one up. I'm usually adverse to the idea of playing a board game on my iPhone but this actually went swimmingly well. It's a solid package and one that will keep your inner entrepreneur happy for hours on end.

    You like board games on your iPad? Then get this one. It is as simple as captivating and even though there are some usability flaws Le Havre is very well executed.

    Tightly pieced together, efficient, muscular if not nimble.

    Tough and brutal despite plentiful hints and in-depth tutorial, Le Havre is a faithful recreation of the award-winning boardgame.

    Le Havre is the most complete board game upon launch offering single player, pass and play and online multiplayer straight out of the box. It should have been cooked for a bit more to clean up the interface a bit, and given it retina resolution. Still it is a great adaption of the physical board game well worth diving into.
