    ‘The Lighthouse HD’. A uniquely atmospheric game of ships, collision avoidance, sea monsters and fog. Forget the line-drawing games of the past, and Follow the Light!

    As darkness falls, the storm ravaged seas begin to swell, and the fog closes in. Only the sentinel Lighthouse, with its guiding light, stands against the elements and fearsome creatures of the deep.
    Use the light to guide the myriad vessels to safety. These range from small, fast moving speedboats and luxury yachts, to cruisers and mega tankers. Avoid collisions with other vessels, rocks, mines and whirlpools! Drive back the pervasive fog, before it envelops everything!

    Creatures that haunt the abyssal depths will rise to prey on the unwary! Huge Megalodon sharks and colossal squid will hunt your vessels! Spectral ghost ships and alluring Sirens will drive them onto the rocks! Fight back with flares, warning buoys and foghorn blasts! Hunt down the fabled Kraken with cannons and depth charges!

    Do you have what it takes to guide the ships to safety? Can you survive through the night, or will the fearsome denizens of the deep, drag your ships down to the crushing depths... ‘The Lighthouse’. A uniquely atmospheric game of ships, collision avoidance, sea monsters and fog. Forget the line-drawing games of the past, and Follow the Light!
