Star Ships is like battleship game in space aliens theme.
Game play is similar to battleship, but instead of 1 shot per round you fire multiple shots depending on the number of your remaining ships. This feature makes the game different from classic battleship board game, and it adds strategy to the game, instead of just picking random shots.
Playable against computer, or a friend
Game area is adjusted to keep each game around 5 to 10 minutes.
- Salvo fire
- 4 different shaped battle ships.
- Beautiful artwork of space aliens theme.
Battleship (Galactica), With A Twist.
Man, it's the little game-makers like these that still catch me by suprise.
This game is the same general premise as the classic game of Battleship. The twist is that you set off a barrage of attacks in one turn. When your fleet is full, you get to initialize nine targets. As your fleet gets destroyed you lose one attack per lost fleet ship.
I find this makes a great game that I can play start to finish in around five minutes. Seems about perfect for a mobile gaming platform. When I was playing my first game, I got a phone call and when I exited that call the game was immediately still running, right where I left off. No loading even.
The artwork is a very appealing outerspace, cartoon theme. Animations are fluid and on the iPhone a very satisfying vibration is set off with every hit and destroyed ship. Sound effects work well and controls are simple and effective.
As is my desire with most game offerings on this platform, I think the game would only be aided by the integration of one of the online gaming networks ie. Open Feint, Agon, Scoreloop etc.
