How to Play

Controls and indicators
The home button is on the top left corner. Use this to return to the welcome screen.
The speaker button is on the top right corner.
Select and drag the balloon “ships” on the 10 x 6 board to place them.
Each ship is 1 cell wide.
You have 5 ships which are 2, 3, 3, 4, and 5 cells long.
Select the rotate button above the balloon ship to change their orientation. You can only do this if there’s ample room to rotate them.
Players attack in turns. The human player goes first, followed by the computer player.
Select anywhere on the grid on your turn to shoot.
If you attack part of a ship, the cell will turn green.
If you miss, the cell appears in red.
The first player to sink all 5 of the opponents’ ships is the winner.
You must shoot all but one of the balloons on a ship to sink it.
Shoot at random until you hit a ship rather than focus on one area at once.
The game grid has 60 cells. Each of your 5 ships have a length of 5, 4, 3, 3, and 2. This means that 28.33% of the board has a ship. You have about 1 out of 4 chances of hitting a ship at random.
If you use a pattern, use a diagonal pattern, as most ships have at least 3 balloons.
When you do find a ship, shoot within the vicinity to determine where the next segment might be & repeat the process until the ship has been destroyed.
All ships are aligned vertically or horizontally.
To confound the enemy, try to keep your ships away from one another.
The most important ship is the smallest one as it is the hardest to find at random.
The game is suited for players who like games like the board game Battleship.
The game has no adult themed content.
