About Battleships: The cold morning air chills your bones when you, as Admiral of the Navy peer from the bridge towards the mantle of fog covering the ocean. " Where are they? " You realize you must sink and destroy the enemy fleet before they locate yours. Do you have courage to face the ultimate naval challenge and bring victory to your country?

The options are:
1. One player against the computer.
2. Two players.
3. Tournament between several players (two or more). Two play at any time: the winner can then take another opponent and by repeated triumphs against all those presented, to achieve a high score.
4. Salvo Fire: Gives you four shots per boat is left.

When you start the game you will be asked to place your ships on the grid map. If you play against someone else make sure your movement is secret. Move the cursor over the image of a boat next to the map. Press fire again to establish the position of the boat.
