Sea Battle 2 • Earned first victory
I know this sounds silly, but I still consider Battleships to be one of the ultimate military strategy games. For a long time I’ve loved strategy and the narratives that surround them – think Command and Conquer, or even something more contemporary like Company of Heroes – but Battleships is a game that is raw strategy. There’s no storyline – no ‘Axis vs Allies’ or ‘The Brotherhood of Nod’. Just pure, unadulterated gameplay.
And then, of course, some developer called Byril OOO brought it to mobile.
I like the concept. It’s pretty much hard-and-fast Battleships, with a pretty good pen-and-paper design and the option to go one player versus AI, or against an online opponent. For this achievement I just kept it simple – one game, medium AI … as much to give myself a sense of the game over anything else.
I haven’t had a good look at the achievement list yet, but I will see if there’s anything else worth picking up in the meantime. You never know when a backup iOS Achievement will come in handy!
