New Online "DockIt!" Game At BoatUS.com
Tests Your Boat Handling Skills
ALEXANDRIA, Va., January 22, 2009 – A new online “DockIt!” game is the latest of six, free games available at BoatUS.com/games that will keep your passion for boating alive all winter long.
“To many boaters, docking is a spectator sport,” said BoatU.S. Program Manager Ted Sensenbrenner. “Now you can compete for high scores and never worry about running into dock pilings, scratching up your boat, or going aground. It’s a great way have fun and test your boat handling skills.”
The DockIt! game allows users to select one of three boats: stern drive powerboat; inboard powerboat; and deep draft sailboat. Each vessel has its own unique handling characteristics. Players use the arrow buttons on a standard computer keyboard to safely maneuver the boat into a slip – no special gaming equipment is required. Three levels of play are offered and helpful boating tips also periodically appear on-screen.
Also at BoatUS.com/games are: Sudoku; word search; six boating jigsaw puzzles; a crossword puzzle and a solitaire version of Mahjong.
The DockIt! game was developed through a partnership with MadMariner.com
