I played the game religiously as a child. I’ll bet the original game still sits somewhere, buried in a closet in the basement of the home I grew up in, minus a few pegs.
Now the game I played as a youth is available for the iPhone.
Premier iPhone application developer EA has released Battleship for the iPhone OS.
The game-play and overall strategy remains just like the original version but the graphics and 3D effects bring it into the future. There are however new super-weapons and different modes of play as well.
The game can be played in two-player mode over bluetooth or WiFi as well.
Check it out in the iTunes App Store for $2.99 here.
