FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTION
** I've completed Seaman difficulty but Lieutenant difficulty is not unlocking. Is this a bug?
No it is not a bug. The next difficulty will only be unlocked once all of the puzzles within the current difficulty is completed. Level(s) marked in white, indicate that they are incomplete. Meanwhile, level(s) marked in orange numbers indicate levels that they have been completed.
** The square is not turning into a ship. Is this a bug?
No it is not a bug. Grey block(s) will only turn into ship once all of it's surrounding blocks are marked as water. As seen in tutorial and game screenshot. The game is designed this way to help you validate your answers. This is not a bug!

Room for improvement
Let me start out by saying that what this game does, it does well. It's well-thought out, with puzzles whose difficulty is appropriately labeled. Furthermore, there are enough puzzles at each difficulty level that, by the time you've completed one set of puzzles at a given level, you've trained yourself to the next level.
But there's definitely room for improvement. The most glaring problem is the fact that, at least as far as I can tell, there are no battleships that span four grid spaces. Furthermore, it would've been nice to have been given a simple explanation of the controls without going through an entire tutorial. Both of these items are fixable in the execution of the game. In the end, I feel that the developers of this game would be well-served to take a look at the gameplay of any of the eight logic puzzle games created by Conceptis, Ltd., for what should be relatively minor improvements to the app, which would make a major impact on its quality.
Like sudoku? Get this now!
Although some of the puzzles (mostly at the start) are patently simple, the challenge and logic kicks up fast. You need to develop a very sudoku-like set of rules to determine placement. If there's one downside, it's that where sudoku puzzles always have a next step that you can deduce, you frequently get the first few steps and then have to deduce the next dozen before you know where anything goes. You can spend a lot of time either staring at an early point of the puzzle or trying out guess after guess. It's way more fun than it has any right to be, though, and provides good value for the money.
Fun logic puzzle game
This is a fun little logic puzzle game. It has a simple, clean execution, without fluff to get in the way. It makes an excellent diversion to play for a few minutes at a time, or for a larger chunk if you want to stretch your mind.
My only recommendation, as a developer, would be to change some of the user interface elements to match the graphical style, like the reset dialogue, and to consider adding larger ship types that take up four spaces, although with the grid size used that might make the puzzle too obvious.
Fun game, looking forward to seeing more from this developer.
