What's New in Version 1.0.84
We’ve made additional behind-the-scenes adjustments to improve overall gameplay.
"Just one game . . ."
"Battleship" is a fantastic classic board game and the iPad makes it better because now you can play it while lying down on the coach. My six year old son hid behind the couch, where I couldn't see him. He then asked his little sister to look at my iPad and tell him where I placed my ships. My daughter says, "I just want to look at you ships. I won't tell anybody where they are". The subterfuge starts so young. Then my son starts saying things like, "That shot was right below my ship, Dad". Then I shoot one hole up, miss, and hear him giggle. Watching sinking ships (full of thousands of drowning sailors) really brings out the giggles in my kids.
Then one night I ask my wife if she wants to play Battleship with me. She says "just one game." We played for an hour and a half. Consequently, I can safely say this game is fun for kids and adults. Of course, I would not have spent $1000 on iPads just to play Battleship HD over local wifi, but it sure as anything is a good use for them. (Plus the HD version plays great with the iPhone/iPod Touch version).
Good rendition, buuut...
I thought the rendition of the game was true to the original board game, and once you disable all the cutscenes, it's quite smooth, fun, and fast. So why only three stars?
1. Once you hit Admiral of the Fleet, there's really not much more reason to play except occasionally to kill time. There's no more ranks, no more rewards (except for two nearly impossible to obtqin superweapons which have nothing to do with ranking). That's a smaller issue, it doesn't bother me much. The big annoyer is next.
2. I have bought an app. I paid money for it. EA and Hasbro got money from me. So why is it, nearly every time I open the game, I get an annoying popup, which tells me about other completely unrelated titles by EA. The Sims is apparently the popular app to advertise this way. They also sneak big ads into the end-of-game cutscenes. Hey EA: I paid you for this game. I could understand that if the game was free that you might get some justification for it, but this is a paid app. Due to how much this annoys me, I'm making sure that I do NOT purchase any additional EA titles.
It gets three stars because the gameplay is faithful, though.
The BEST battleship game
Well worth the money. EA is constantly having sales, so you can snag this great game for .99 cents. And stop complaining about the ads. There is a small ad in the corner, and it only appears when you have an Internet connection. Turn wifi off and restart the game to get rid of the ad during your game session.
3 Game Types + Multiplayer:
Your classic battleship game with amazing 3D animations.
Fire as many shots as you have ships (5 shots = 5 ships, 4 shots = 4 ships...etc.)
Unlock and use a variety of weapons each with a specified amount of time before you can use them. This is my favorite game mode, as it speeds up gameplay and adds a new level of strategy and warfare.
Multiplayer: You and a friend can play a 2-player game either on one device or between two devices (wifi or Bluetooth).
Hope this review helps :)
