Battleship: Online Naval War Competitive Battle Game

FavoriteLoadingAdd game to your favorites

This exciting naval combat game is based on the classic Battleship strategy board game made popular in the ’60s. Two players fight in a head-to-head battle where they blast each other’s warships in a map. Players must guess the position of the ships, with each one taking turns to blast. You play against the computer in this competitive strategy game. Both players get 5 ships that must be positioned tactically in the map. Try to shuffle ships in such a way that your enemy won’t find their location immediately. The first player to destroy all their enemy’s warships wins. Figure out your opponent’s position fast to win each game.

  • Shuffle your ships in the map. Assume positions that are hard for the enemy to find.
  • Blast your enemy’s position. Based on your previous target, deduce where the ships are located.
  • Focus on finding the position of the 5 ships. They may be vertically or horizontally positioned.
  • Once you blast a ship, the square burns with fire. If you miss, the square turns green.
  • When you blast a ship, blast squares around it to make sure the ship is completely destroyed.

    • You must first shuffle all your 5 ships in the map.
    • Then, the blasting begins. This is where you must guess your enemy’s position.
    • If you blast all your enemy’s ships first, you win. You lose if the enemy destroys all your ships first.
    • Blasting the front or back tip of your enemy’s ship sometimes destroys the entire ship.
    • Likewise, if front or back tips of your ship is blasted, it destroys your entire ship.
    • Touchscreen

      • A square burns with fire if you successfully blast a ship. The square turns green if you miss.

    • There is no pause button in the game. Because there are no time limits to blasting, a pause button is not necessary. You can leave for a while and the game will still be there.
  • Strategy
    • The idea is to blast all your enemy’s ships first before they defeat you. This is the only way you can win.
    • To win naval war combat, you must master two crucial tactical aspects of the game: Shuffling your ship’s positions and locating your enemy’s ships.
    • Shuffling Your Ship’s Position
      • You are given an area with 10 x 6 squares.
      • You must place 5 ships strategically so your enemy does not find and destroy your ships right away.
      • As a tip, try to scatter your ships in such a way that your enemy won’t locate them too closely.
      • When ships are too close, it’s easy for the enemy to blast around ships they already found.
      • An entire ship is destroyed when the enemy blasts the front tip.
      • Sometimes, it only takes one blast to destroy your entire ship when the enemy locates a vertical ship.
      • Thus, try to avoid too many vertical positions when you shuffle your ships.
      • There is no limit to shuffling. You can shuffle ship position any number of times before starting the game.
    • Locating the Position of Enemy Ships
      • The first blast is always a guess. So try to aim where you think a ship might be located.
      • Once you locate a ship, hit any square around it. This will give you an idea where the res t of the ship’s body is.
      • It’s easy to target the longest ship which occupies 5 squares. You and your enemy get one long ship.
      • Medium-length ships are also easier to find as they occupy three squares.
      • It’s harder to locate the small ships that occupy 2 squares.
      • The idea is to deduce the location of other ships based on the one’s you’ve blasted.
      • If you’re not getting luck blasting close to ships you found, blast squares farther away.
      • You may find that your enemy placed ships far apart, or some close to each other.
    • Guessing where your enemy’s ships are is a race against time. You must destroy them before they sink all your ships.
    • You only get one blast per turn. So make your targets count. The more your blasts hit a ship, the sooner you can take your enemy down.
    • Enjoy playing this competitive war battle game again and again. It’s nice to win now and then. But to take the game further, try to beat the computer two or three consecutive times. It will surely be a challenge.
