Battleship offers Wi-Fi multiplayer capabilities
EA Mobile has added to its collection of App Store games with the launch of Battleship. The game follows the same theme as the classic Battleship board-game, requiring players to sink their opponent's ships in a strategic naval battle. Players can press a square which corresponds to the desired coordinates for the attack strike, which is then displayed as a 3D battle sequence including gunfire and battleship destruction. Throughout the game, players can strive for ascending ranks starting at Seaman and ending at Admiral.
Battleship features several different game modes such as classic play, a more intensive fire-at-will Salvo mode, and a Super Weapons mode where players can use a variety of lethal weapons that were unlocked during the game. Multi-player gaming is supported via Wi-Fi with two devices, or using pass-and-play with a single device.
Battleship is now available from the App Store for $3.
