Naval Battle, Chess & Backgammon hit iPod

updated 09:20 am EST, Tue February 5, 2008

Naval Battle, Chess & Bkgm

Two new games are available for iPods on the iTunes Store. Naval Battle: Mission Commander (iTunes link) is similar in concept to the classic Battleship boardgame, but introduces new rules, a campaign with 18 missions, and a hotseat multiplayer mode. Players can additionally take advantage of surrounding terrain in combat, and employ special weapons such as torpedoes and reconnaissance flights. The game costs $5, but will only run on Classic and fifth-generation iPods, as well as third-generation Nanos.

From the same developer is Chess & Backgammon (iTunes link), which as its name implies pairs the two classic strategy games in a single download. Players can use 2D or 3D views, and pick from a variety of themes to suit their moods. Actual gameplay is divided into Instant Play, Quiz and Classic Games modes, with three separate difficulty levels. The collection has the same pricing and iPod requirements as Naval Battle.
