If you have played the classic Hasbro game, Battleship, then you will feel right at home play Battle Space, a new spin off of the game by Pwnage Software. The concept is roughly the same, but Battle Space features a few innovative twists on the game, and great online features, that make it a worthy addition to your android device.
After booting up the game, users will be forced to login to the application to start playing. Conveniently, Battle Space features Facebook integration which makes signing in a breeze. For users not wanting to use Facebook, it is also possible to sign in using a generic username and password.Once logged in, there are a variety of game modes. The best place to start would probably be “Computer Training” which is essentially a single player mode verse computer AI. This will be a good way for new players to learn the ropes.
This brings us down to the actual gameplay. In its simplistic sense, it is identical to Battleship (albeit on a larger grid), in which users take it in turns to launch missiles at the opponents grid in hope that it will hit a craft. A successful hit earns another shot. What separates this game from the Battleship is the innovative power-ups that can be selected by players to turbocharge their hunting ability.In addition to the Vs Computer modes, players can jump in a queue to play against other players, and track their progress on an online leader board. There are also friends lists so you can easily see who of your buddies is online so a game can be quickly initiated. All in all, this is an excellent android app that will only become better as more people begin to compete online.
In the words of the developers:
If you like Battleship then you'll be blown away by Battle Space. This is a spin off the classic game Battleship with a few enhancements. Hone your skills by practicing with the AI and when you're ready queue up and play with people from all over the world or with your friends. Find special power-ups scattered across the battlefield and use them wisely to defeat your opponent. Check the leaderboards to see who is really the best commander of the fleets and service record to show off to your fellow captains. Come and see where you rank in space!
