What others say about Top Sailor

★★★★★ Top Sailor = Big Hit

The physics and realism are completely amazing. So much like real sailing! If you sail, you must get this. If you don't sail, you'll know how when you've got some Top Sailor races under your belt. May I suggest decreasing the seagulls volume... even still, this is excellent.

★★★★ Not too shabby 8)

I like the wind physics and how you can capsize if not careful. I would love to see some old sailing ships on the open sea... Physics like this game has on a grander scale would be very welcome! Thanks

★★★★★ Love It!

Still learning but already see that this is just what I was looking for: a realistic sailing/boating game with natural sounds. Graphics are fantastic and it's lots of fun. One thing – the wind sound is a bit loud. Highly recommend!

★★★★★ Simply the best!

Hands down best dinghy racing simulation on any platform. Now even better since you actually have to look at sails to see if you are catching wind or not. Endless fun for the winter months!

★★★★★ Great.

Wonderful game. I love the great physics and great controls and realism. I wish there were more levels, different ships to choose from, and an exploring mode. All together a great mobile game though.

★★★★★ Ahoy!!!

I'm no sailor but I love this game. I would expect it's as close to the real thing as you can get on a phone. You find yourself pushing to get the sail just right to make the best use of the wind. And when you through the AI opponents into the mix it gets very interesting!
