Long time, no update....
I have had this app for a very long time and still play it today. It just seems like the devs just don't care to try to change anything on it to make it better. I don't remember the last time I got an update for it. Look at the version number. 1.0.63. The game has been out long enough that it probably should have more updates than that.
I have two suggestions that I feel would make this game better. First, the computer is WAY to easy to beat. It doesn't use any kind of reasoning for its random shots. I don't know how many times it's fired a shot where there was no way I could have a ship there. This game needs multiple difficulty levels. Second and more minor, they need to add an option to turn off the shake to redeploy feature. It can be real annoying when you get your ships where you want them, go to start the game, and as you're getting ready to hit the button they all move..... or at least make it less sensitive.
I would gladly like to write a five star review, unfortunately within the first day of purchase I have encountered a few glitches. Firstly, on occasion the game shuts off and returns me to my home screen. Second, upon purchase the five opponent ship status bar was visible on all three game settings. Now it is only visible on super-weapons mode. Third there are some noticeable differences in the cut scenes from game to game as if the image is zoomed in too far. On a side note the shake repositioner is far too sensitive. Otherwise it was worth the two dollars as all of the other battleship games are too cheesy and deviate from the original game play which is why I am choosing four instead of three stars. Hopefully this reaches you and is taken into consideration. I look forward to the next update. I will re-review when/if the bugs are worked out. -josh
Pay for Ads??? Other problems...
Game play is OK and about what I expected. Salvo mode is fun and makes the game go faster for short games. Some of the "special weapons" are also interesting. However, I strongly object to receiving advertisements to purchase other games coming up every time I start a game. Having a link to "Other EA Games" should be sufficient. Pop-up Ads are most unwelcome. Their effect on me is to make me not want to purchase any other EA games to avoid the Ad issue.
I think that there is also a battery/power issue with this game on my iphone. After starting the game, I have noticed that my phone becomes warm and the battery discharges much more quickly than normal. This is even with the phone in "sleep" mode. I have had to turn the phone off and restart it after playing this game to keep this from happening.
I see from reading other reviews that there are a lot of folks unhappy with the Ad issue. I have to conclude that the cons outweigh the pros on this game. Hopefully the developers are reading and will take action.
