I don't have an iPod or iPhone (hoping that phenomenon was a passing craze), so I don't have much idea how it works. By the looks of the YouTube demo (below), however, the player fills empty ships with cargoes, and embarks them.
Alas, my hopes of a game linked to (real) price development have so far come to naught. My only hope is that this little app is a success, and inspires Blizzard Entertainment to develop a massively multiplayer online role-playing game with a shipping theme.
