Game of the Week Winner

Edited By chrilley on 11/16/2008

I'm quite positive that someone around here (if not everyone) has played the classic Battleship board game? Well, this game is like that plus it's online! All you need is a friend to play against since... well... it's a 2 player game.

For those who have no idea what this game is about here's the short story: It's a turn-based strategy game were you place out your fleet and then battle your opponent by shooting randomly on the map until you hit something. There's a help file included in the game with the actual rules and some yadda-yadda.

Because I got some hosting problems(can't find a good free one) I have this uploaded on the best public upload space I could find.

I'll wait with the voting until some friends who I can try it with are online. But it's always positive with these games which got something, a little extra .

Wouldn't hurt with a singleplayer mode though ...

Impossible to play, there was nobody online. And unless you share IP addresses over MSN, there never will be anyone. Could do with a lobby so that people can play without having to arrange it beforehand.

@ LIJI: Thanks again!

@ Norris Boothman: Good idea, I should be able to add a lobby and challenge system without much problem.But one catch is that I will need a server up and running for it 24/7, or it really would be impossible to play.

@ Zezard: It's possible I might add singleplayer later.

you can just use a public moo server (or even more then 1 if some are down)
just if you do you will need to encrypt your info so it isn't easily hacked!

Seems the upload site went down or something. I have no luck when it comes to hosting, hang on I look for another.

I've voted for my game. But I don't know where the other 15 votes came from.

Needs a lobby/server list.

"But one catch is that I will need a server up and running for it 24/7"

You could use free webspace and make a database of servers

Create enemy AI... well, an enemy that shoots at any potential position, and then never shoots in the same place twice...
