Even though we’re knee deep in E3 2012 coverage, the regular Xbox Live release schedule rolls on. This week’s mobile Live game, Battleship from Electronic Arts is now available to entertain the folks at home.
Battleship is an adaptation of the popular board game from Milton Bradley. In the Classic game type, two sides take turns blindly firing at each other, trying to find and destroy the other’s ships. Salvo mode works much like classic, but moves faster than traditional games because you’re allowed to fire as many shots per turn as you have remaining ships. The new Superweapon mode adds a variety of weapons to the gameplay, mixing up the traditional dynamics. All three modes feature 3D attack animations, giving the beloved game a little extra punch.
