PROTIP: DID YOU DIE? RESTART BY PRESSING 'R'!
Trade goods between ports on opposite ends of the world. Brave the seas and vanquish monsters. Also, learn how to sail your ship.
Boatman is an action/trading game.
This build does not have a tutorial or a win condition.
Note: purple-coloured ports are inactive. Seek the other port!
Drag RIGHT MOUSE to ready a paddle stroke. Thrust depends on distance from origin. (It works like a slingshot.)
LEFT MOUSE fires your currently selected item, if possible.
1-2-3-4 to select cargo slots.
At a trading post, CLICK items in your cargo hold to sell them (if possible), and CLICK items in the trading post to buy them (if you can afford it).
Read cargo descriptions for clues.
