A revision on the most classic game

It's told that Battleship game was already played at the dawn of the twentieth century, and it's reached its peak during WWI. Since then, we all have played it in school or home or wherever. Recently, there have been several adaptations to mobile devices, being this Ships'n'battles one of the most relevant.

It has some relevant differences to the game we all know, though. On one hand, 3D graphics, animations, soundtrack and ka-booms make the game visually more appealing than it usually is. In addition, when you miss you have a chance of getting a power-up and change game balance thanks to ghost ships, radar, homing missiles and cluster bombs. 4 difficulty levels and a ranking system allow to play progressively before diving into online multiplaying.

However, some rules have been omitted, namely the extra shot when you hit something and the prohibition to deploy ships touching each other, and there's no way to select any given set of rules or add your home ones. Likewise, there's no chance to deactivate power-ups and play a "standard" game; nor you can choose a plain view instead of the garish 3D by default. A hotseat offline multiplayer mode would have also been welcome.

Anyway, a great facelift for Battleship. Recommended for children and parents alike.

    Was excited until my virus protector reported it as viral ads infected. Is that true?
