The Windows Phone game Rum Run is now available in at the Windows Phone Store. We took an early look at the game a few weeks ago and found it to be a challenging time management/strategy game set on the high seas.
You play the role of a ship captain who is tasked to deliver food to a starving village. You buy/sell rum and food at various ports to finance the operation while dodging storms and pirate raids. You need to feed 100% of the village before they run out of the food. If they run out, the game's over.
Rum Run currently has five maps to conquer with more on the way and ship upgrades to help you tackle the trade industry better. Rum Run is a fun game to pass the time with and while it may not be action packed, it is plenty challenging. We did learn one tip that might be helpful. There is a way to battle the pirate ships that try to steal your rum.
There is an achievement in the fifth map called Behind Enemy Lines. You earn it by sailing one of your ships in to the volcano on the map. Once earned, your ship gets canons, capable of sinking the nastiest of pirates. Your canon feature remains in place if you go back to the previous maps, giving Rum Run a nice re-play value.
There is a free trial available for Rum Run with the full game running $.99. You can find Rum Run here at the Windows Phone Store.
