“You sank my battleship!” It was this line from Jim Carey (as The Riddler) in Batman Forever that made me fall in love with Battleship as a child. While the actual game wasn’t nearly as cool as the film made it out to seem, it still remains one of those age-old war games that can be played any time, anywhere and with anything. From video games and the plastic board game set, right down to an old sheet of paper, much like Paper Football it’s survived throughout the years because of its simplicity and adaptability.
Welp, one developer is looking to bring back that old feel of playing battleship with nothing but pen and paper in the form of a game for smartphones and tablets. Enterra Inc has announced its Sea Battle: Confrontation will be launching exclusively for Samsung devices in the Samsung Apps store.
The game’s stylish, classy “paper and pen” look is a perfect marriage for Samsung devices with the S Pen, such as the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 and Note 10.1. They’re quite fine to play with fingers, though, so those without Note devices can have just as much fun. You can play the classic battleship experience here with either AI or a friend via Bluetooth or WiFi, and aside from the steady-paced, monotonous declaration of strategically placed strikes (“A1, F6, G3″) users can use power-ups to call in airstrikes, pull up a radar and even use sea mines.
The game’s “hall of fame” feature will bring achievements for those needing a sense of accomplishment after all the hours of gameplay that are sure to be sucked out of you. Sea Battle: Confrontation is available for most Samsung devices with Android 2.3.3 and higher, including the Samsung Galaxy Camera, Samsung Galaxy S3, Samsung Galaxy Note 2, Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 and more.
