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.
Ships N 'Battles has high-definition graphics, great special effects like explosions and smoke!

Love the gameplay. I do think some of the power-ups are over-powered, but this is generally a well made game and works well over LAN and the internet.
It doesn't support galaxy note 2
I've been looking for a battleship game that two people can play against each other under the same roof. Thanks to this game that search is over.
If you like battleship you'll love this game. Awesome graphics and sound, easy to play and plenty of bonuses to keep you intrigued. TONAGE OF FUN!
Ideal game for the office..good graphics, fun game, well worth it
Multiplayer via global server seems to be broken, as it always reports 0 players available or it could just be an unpopular game I suppose... "Extreme" difficulty is definitely broken. Yeah, I get that it's extreme, but after losing 12 games in a row in
