I am very upset that I cannot (no matter how hard I try, how fast I go or how many of the extra money pieces I buy) ever progress past Level 13 and about $159,000. I look at the "other scores" posted when the game is over and they are incredibly high in both levels and dollar amounts. Frankly, I believe these postings are fraudulent and that no one has ever been able to get to these high levels. I have liked playing the game but at this point am extremely frustrated at not being able to progress.

Also, it says they are downloading new puzzles but they keep giving the same ones over and over not only from game to game but the same ones within the same game. To my way of thinking, this game has been misrepresented and, therefore, the money or game credit used for this should be refunded.

A definite nono to me. Time is up, time is up, time is up. Why didn't the creators make a relaxed mode? It is a nice game, but I want time to think, I dont want to rush and try to win against my own computer, I want to think and have a nice designed barge. Besides, it keeps repeating the same graphics. Definitely, no. But the idea is great!

Ocean express is a really good game in my opinion. I have been playing it since it first came out. There is plenty of time at the lower levels, and you should just keep practicing. I generally get up to level 46-48 now when I play, but that wasn't always the case. Another trick to help your score is to change your name after each game. I know this may sound wrong, but the game seems to get harder the longer you play under the same name. Another thing, I think it is better to buy more barges before buying new port access, but that may just be my opinion, and may not work for you. Always get all tokens as they pop up when you are trying to buy barges and port access, then once you have spent all you want to, forget they exist, because they have no further value.

As far as the new puzzles, make sure your options are set to "always download new puzzles."

There are a few things I would like to see different, but I am sure it is too late for changes in the game. I wish I could buy more barges.

Another thing, make sure you are playing in casual mode, not expert. The expert mode totally sucks in my opinion.

Have fun, relax and enjoy the game, after all it is just a game.

I loved playing this game on my daughter in laws computer, but the opinions expressed here make my think twice about downloading it or buying it. Is it different from this sight? I wouldn't think so, but seems no one here is happy with it. So it's a no go for me...

Inlay theme puzzle game. The main objective of the game is to try not to leave any gaps within the puzzle. If the player picks up the wrong piece, they can discard them into the waters. But the consequence is that they would lose some money for it. The game graphics are good. I didn’t find the game’s music/sounds intrusive at all. I found this game somewhat enjoyable, but I won’t be purchasing this game. For those who had purchased this game – Happy Gaming!

I am getting invisible blocked areas in the barge. A piece that should fit does for some reason. I have tried two pieces of different shapes and either should fit, but they won't work. What is the problem?

I have been playing this game over and over again ever since it first came out. It's become a staple for me, like spider solitaire or mahjong. I just leave it on my desk top and go back to it to see if I can EVER break the 2 million mark. Hasn't happened yet. Just can't pack fast enough! But it sure is fun trying. It's so different you should at least do the trial and see if it's one you'll enjoy, too.
