This is a Battleship clone, and quite a good one I might add. There are several differences, [that is if you are a battleship player] that, in my opinion, add to the game. There are more ships, there is 1 four decker, [each 'deck' is a square] there is 2 three deckers, 3 two deckers, and 4 one deckers. There is also 2 mines. You put out your ships, and you'd better start with the big ones first, because here is another difference. You have to have one square between all ships or mines. [no more building a snake crossing the grid and touching in all sorts of spots to try and confuse the computer]

Once you have everything placed, the computer [or human, depending] places his stuff, [did I forget to mention that when playing with the computer you are always on the left] and the left always goes first. If you step on the one of the other guy's mines, you must show where one of your decks is. Obviously, the one to run out of ships first loses.

Registered owners will get, among other things, the ability to download new skins, which will change the background and the look of the ships.

Give this one a try, I think you'll like it.
