Use strategy and logic to predict where the enemy submarines are located and sink them in this modern remake of the classic Battleship game!

There are 3 difficulty levels for people of different skill levels.

Good luck in your mission, Commander!

And have fun :)

The problem is mines remove all strategy to the game. Battleship worked because the smallest ship was 2 units and you can still still use strategy to find such a ship, whereas there is no strategy or possible narrowing-down of hiding places for a mine which can be on any tile.

So it's gonna come down to who is luckier of finding those mines, you or the enemy.

Everything is possible to do, yes, but it's gonna come down to luck. Not the worst luck-based-medals game out there, but it's basically Battleship minus strategy.

Well, there isn't much to say about it. "Battleship" is a classic and, well, strategy only plays a minor part in it, as luck decides the outcomes. Just hunt & destroy as fast as possible (hunt in a diagonal pattern, destroy adjacent tiles of hits).


Hunting for the mines is a little to tedious.

Faithful adaptation of a classic

So far all reviews have pretty much been complaints about the rules of the game. The creator is simply making a flash version of Battleship, not create an entirely new game, so if you have an issue with the amount of luck involved in locating the final 4 bombs, your issue is with the original pencil/paper game that's over 100 years old.

As for the game, I thought it was a good flash adaptation. Clean looking flash, nice sfx. I like that it offers an auto-arrange for your ships if you're just playing on easy this is ideal because perfect ship placement isn't necessary to win. The AI is going to pick squares in an increasingly efficient manner based on which difficulty setting you've chosen, some reviews have mention that the AI is predictable. Well, the most efficient manner to search for ships in a square grid is going to be the same every time so long as the dimensions of the board stay the same.

I really liked the game, thought it was well-made and bug-free. I thought the medal for 40% accuracy on Challenging was a reasonable goal for a medal, would've like to have seen a few more medals but that's my only criticism. I expected Battleship, and that's exactly what I got from this game.
