The Raging Sea sure is a challenging game, it sort of reminds me of the game Overboard for PS1 (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_LMrn0nyMt4).

Initially I was a bit confused about the what the aim of the game was but after playing for a while I was enlightened, I needed to find the shore and not sink the ship on the way.

The controls could do with a bit more work but when playing you feel the essence of how steering a ship might be. I found avoiding the icebergs was tough at times but it gave the game some nice character.

Something that bugged me was that the camera can't be moved so if you accidentally go too far forward it means turning around can be a problem.

I think the game has a lot of potential if developed further and could make for a very enjoyable play later if some of the basic problems are resolved.
