BATTLESHIP for Negative User Reviews

FreezesI just recent bought this and to start with it’s been fine. But now half way through a game it freezes. Which is really frustrating. What’s going on. It only seems to happen on the commander game..Version: 1.2.5

Multiplayer is badCan’t play multiplayer, one device will randomly disconnect and not reconnect even though I have great wifi speeds often I can’t even get the game started with multiplayer..Version: 1.2.2

Play with Friends FeatureThere’s a glitch in this new feature where it one player has classics mode boats and the other has commander! My partner and me have been waiting for this and now we still can’t play against each other. Please fix it.Version: 1.1.0

Addictive! Until …Great game. Engaging graphics. Classic strategies. Thoroughly enjoyable. That is, until you reach level 60 (or thereabouts). At this point the game no longer appears to try match you with online opponents at the same level - or online opponents at all. All you get are opponents suspiciously ranked exactly at level 60 or an impossibly high (158) or low (try 1) level. And the bulk of these play like AIs anyway. It’s a shame, because as simple as the game is, it’s a ton of fun to square off with an opponent who has an interesting approach to strategy. I guess the only thing to do is start over at level 1?.Version: 1.2.5

Lesser replacementObviously this game has to be compared to the previous iteration of Battleship, and it’s that comparison that makes this only so-so. On the good side; game play is very fast, graphics are sharp and the game seems to be stable. But some pretty big knocks on the minus side. The biggie, gameplay itself uses some optional multi-shot rules (get a bonus shot after every hit) I don’t really care for. And it ONLY uses this odd rule for “classic” game play. I miss the old “salvo” rule of one shot per ship afloat. I also don’t immediately see how to choose a player name? Weird. I’m sure I’ll figure that out. After living with this for a couple weeks I have a couple additional gripes. First, when playing sequential games, especially after forfeiting a game, a crash is almost a sure thing. Second, which explains why the first one matters, this game CHEATS something awful. I know this is common with AIs because mostly, computers are stupid. But the cheating here is shameful; you get a follow up shot when ever you score a hit. Well, depending on where you hit, a follow up shot at the same target should normally have a 25-50% of scoring a hit. The ap hits easily 80-90% of the time. At this point, I call it unplayable against the AI..Version: 1.1.2

Crashes regularly in Play Friends modeI actually want my money back, this is ridiculously bad!! Really unstable when playing friends remotely, regularly disconnects you from the game and reports no internet. Disappointing considering the cost..Version: 1.2.2

UnimpressedI was so excited to play this on the app as I used to play the board game as a child. Unfortunately, the game is so buggy that out of the ten game I attempted to play with my partner only two worked. It also only works whilst in commando mode, classic freezes every time you launch a game..Version: 1.2.5

Old school fun modernisedReally enjoy the app and introducing the next generation to battleships. Finding a glitch when playing with a friend with it freezing or long delays between shots making it painstakingly slow and pointless..Version: 1.2.2

Battleship implosionYou know it’s a bad sign when the developers haven’t done an up date in over 7 months. The battleship game when played with friends is constantly getting disconnected and the computer ends up finishing your game for you. Doesn’t Hasbro care about there game that’s not even playable? Does Apple even care that it’s not working and I used my hard earned money to attempt to play this garbage. Doesn’t even appear that the developers even reply to these poor reviews because they have no plans to fix the broken unplayable game that is just a money grab for them..Version: 1.2.5

Enjoyable Classic With A Major FlawI am really enjoying playing battleship the graphics are acceptable and the gameplay is smooth with no noticeable lag. One major gripe I have with this title however is why do I have to pay for extra commanders and maps, I understand dlc but it is half of the game that I must pay £12.99 to get. For that reason I can only give it 3 stars..Version: 1.2.2

Nowhere near a proper battleships game for family...Bought in a bundle with Monopoly and Cluedo for family (both brilliant) but the previous battleships app I had of 6-7 years ago was far better than this. The classic has random imagery that doesn’t relate - I sank a five-space vessel (whatever that was- a cross between a big fat submarine and a whale) then get a little gunboat video being sunk in one game, and something else in another. On our old one, sink a carrier, see a carrier sinking... The commander version is especially frustrating with weird ships that are tied together, (who has ever seen those on TV news?) , all five of us found that the sonar feature doesn’t go where you want it and we had only apparently random access to other fun features... which spoilt the whole experience for us and we moved on. The classic vessel configuration with the enhanced features would be better for this. The characters available look good but overall it’s definitely not the best one for family and we’re looking for one as good as what we had before... it’s a shame, because the updated Cluedo and Monopoly from this developer’s bundle are simply brilliant!!.Version: 1.2.2

Rules???I have never played battleship where, after you hit a ship, you can continue your turn until you miss again. I wish there was a way to turn that rule off in this game because it makes the game go by in about two minutes, no matter the difficulty. Otherwise it’s a great app. I’ve just never heard of playing this way..Version: 1.0.6

No two player on the deviceBought this for two player mode on holiday, but this is no longer included, just via two devices and have to buy twice. All about extra purchases, reviews for this game cannot be genuine..Version: 1.3.8

Needs workWell intentioned app with fun gameplay but developers need to have a serious look at the network connectivity issues if they are going to advertise online features. Almost all reviews here have the same dropout issues..Version: 1.2.5

Trying to reconnectNearly every game I play, midway it says trying to reconnect and it makes me go back to the main menu and all the game progress goes in the bin..Version: 1.2.5

GlitchyFun, but unfortunately very glitchy when playing with a friend on two person settings... mid game, set will often freeze and kick one player out. Sometimes a game will freeze on the board set-up page and game will not start..Version: 1.2.5

Almost Great...I would give 5 stars if multiplayer was actually multiplayer. It’s so obvious that 90% of the time it matches me against bots. I’d rather wait at least a few minutes to get matched with a person instead of defaulting to a bot after like 5 seconds in queue. If it can’t find anyone to match up with, then I can switch back to single player mode myself. But multiplayer mode is mostly just single player. Love pretty much everything else..Version: 1.2.2

Waste of $ - use free version on SnapchatMy mom and I both bought this so we could play each other because she doesn’t have Snapchat. The game constantly disconnects on one of our ends or both. We tried using mobile data and WiFi and still the game constantly crashes for one of us. And what’s worse is it doesn’t notify the other player that the opponent dropped out, it just automatically plays for them. So if we went in the same house, we’d never know and think everything was all fine and fun competition. What a waste of money. I feel bad my mom spent the money from her account so I’ll reimburse her. :/ Now she’s downloading Snapchat so we can play the free Bitmoji version that I never have issues with..Version: 1.2.5

App looses dataApp support doesn’t work Lost all my progress today was at 17 stars now zero don’t waste your money Was enjoying it.Version: 1.3.2

Anything pass easy and your not gonna winIt’s amazing how the A.I. Can predict rlexactly where all the ships are ike after another, alarmist as if it knows where I put my ships. If it wasn’t so biased this would be a great game (still to the PvP game).Version: 1.3.2

Doesn’t work!My fiancé and I both just paid for and downloaded this game. We tried to play two different games against each other and both of them dropped out, we could not completer a game. A refund would be great!.Version: 1.2.5

Good but can’t earn commandersLove it, would be 5 but would like an opportunity to earn other commanders rather than have to purchase them..Version: 1.2.2

Awful. Rigged.EA Sports Battleship was a fantastic game. This is an awful joke. Don’t waste your money. You can’t turn off the dull animation and single player against the computer is rigged..Version: 1.0.2

So glitchyLoses connection then game carries on automated so you think you are playing a friend when you aren’t super frustrating, ugh it’s getting worse alllll the time, even the free ones work better !!!! Sort it out!!!!.Version: 1.2.5

Used to be utterly superb...This used to be utterly superb until about 6 months ago, when the cross platform “play with friends” facility stopped working, resulting only in an “invalid code” prompt.Throughout lockdown the ability to be able to play this with friends across different platforms was an utter lifeline.... .... and then after an update it just did not work anymore. Heartbroken… Terribly heartbroken!!.Version: 1.2.5

MoneyAnother game that is just interested in getting more money from you.Version: 1.1.2

Too buggy when playing friendsI only purchased this game to play family. And it just doesn’t work. The game will either freeze, or a the computer will take over. Battleship is fine to play against a the computer, but not really the point..Version: 1.2.2

No exit button!!I have an iPhone 11 with out a home button so I can’t close the game. I have to click on the option to go to a website so I can get at a home swipe option there!😳.Version: 1.2.2

Privacy threatDownloaded this to try. Big download. On first play it asks permission to share info with Facebook, Amazon and 2 others I haven’t heard of. The reason for Facebook was given as tracking usage to improve game, but they gave the identical reason for Amazon. Why both? One of the others was worse, they give away your Apple advertising ID, your Google ad ID, location, IP address and more. Come on Hasbro - you shouldn’t risk your brand on this type of dodgy behaviour, especially when most users will be kids. Shame on you..Version: 1.1.2

FaultGreat game except when playing multiplayer online on persons screen would cut out and the game would play for the itself... needs to be fixed as game coast money!.Version: 1.2.2

FIXEDSingle player is fixed in this game I don’t care what you say I don’t care if the developer calls me he will never change my mind the single player in this game is fixed! Hasbro you guys are losers man.Version: 1.2.5

ShamefulDon’t waste your money or time. Frustrating app that disconnects every single game I play, even if I am sitting next to my gigabit WiFi router. Somehow the connection is always lost at some point, and once it’s disconnected, you can’t rejoin the game. Bought this to play with family but it is unplayable. What a scam. I paid for it thinking that buying the “real” version from a big name in toys would be the most solid experience. Shame on Hasbro for having the gall to charge for something this broken. Especially when there are a ton of comments saying the same thing. Also doesn’t let you change your name. And there are no free female characters unless you want to pay for one. Guess that’s why it’s Has”bro”.Version: 1.2.5

Great app... When it runsI love this app and all others developed my Marmalade but this app in particular seemed to crash on me very regularly. I would love the developer to fix any issues in an update if possible..Version: 1.2.5

Not badThe game is okay to play, I like the backgrounds and the characters of the officers. I like the challenges that you can try and achieve too, it the only thing is after buying the app, you still have to purchase more content to get full access. The board is quite small on an XS phone so some of the time it’s hard to be accurate and aim..Version: 1.2.9 - FB login fix

Too much animationI would rate this game 5/5 if there was an option to turn off the animation, there’s too much animation in between players. It would be so much faster if there wasn’t any unnecessary animation.Version: 1.3.8

Very disappointing!My 7 grandsons and I have been playing this for years until it wouldn’t work on my older iPad. We suffered through all of the other crappy battleship games and when I got this new IPad I was so excited to see it available. But.... so disappointed that it doesn’t have pass and play! Now we have to have 2 iPads to play? Really? Would have given 5 stars but not now. How hard would it be to have kept that option?.Version: 1.2.2

HorridThis is without a doubt the worst Battleship game I have ever played . It is so rigged it’s comical . Every time the computer hits one of your ships it knows exactly the direction of your ship . It then starts hitting them in succession. Now if you have only one ship left to sink & your ship that you have is the little 2 job , the minute you hit the last ship of the computers you better pray that you sink its ship , cause if you don’t it’s next shot will hit your little two boat & will sink it , it happens every time , so save your money & stay away from this piece of garbage ..Version: 1.3.8

Old version betterI agree the old version was better and I’m annoyed an app I paid for is no longer available. But this version is growing on me. Two things I don’t like: number one biggest issue is no pass and play option. Huge huge flaw. Number two minor nit is I want more time to review opponent board if I lose. They flash it for like 1 second. Not good enough. Other than that it’s pretty good. Oh yeah — the online opponents are somewhere between 90%-100% bots. It’s very obvious. But true online might stink unless they created a very sophisticated system. Still it’s weird that they lie about it..Version: 1.1.2

Playing with friends doesn’t workWhenever you try to play online with private lobby always disconnects. Useless..Version: 1.2.2

Do not buy for multiplayer, doesn’t work.Multiplayer disconnects from the other player every game. When you disconnect the computer Automatically takes over and you’re playing a computer every time. Doesn’t matter if you’re on wifi or LTE, you will disconnect from your friend. There is no way to community through the game so you won’t know you’re being disconnected u less you’re communicating separate from the game, for example in the same room. I regret buying..Version: 1.2.2

Turn based?This is a functional version of the game you grew up with. The more modern version adds fun extra features. Where it all goes sour is for a “turn based” game, you have to stay logged into the game the entire time. You can’t exit and go into another app while you’re waiting on your opponent or you will split off into a game with a replacement computer opponent. Plus, after paying for a game, they nickel and dime you by making you buy more content if you want to unlock all the features..Version: 1.2.5

Needs turn timerI love this game a lot, but I just wish there was a timer for each turn when playing online. I’ve come across so many players who will take an extremely long time to go their turn or they will just suddenly stop playing and I’m forced to wait minutes or forfeit the game. :(.Version: 1.3.8

WHERE’S THE INCLUSIVITY?The game so far works fine. But after 2 games I decided to see what other characters I could choose. However, when I wanted to change my character I quickly discovered the only FREE options are 2 WHITE MEN, AND 1 SPANISH OR HISPANIC MAN, ALL CISGENDERED ABLE-BODIED MEN. Where are the women? People of colour? While I wouldn’t expect this kind of game to be progressive enough to include trans and non binary characters or it doesn’t mean that it shouldn’t change. There is a large variety of people playing this game, and as one of them I want to be able to choose a character that represents me without having to pay. However, even the paid characters only include 2 women and 2 MORE WHITE MEN. We have enough representation of cis white men, be part of a change and update your app so it reflects the wonderful variety of humans there are in this world..Version: 1.3.8

Pay to winThe paid characters are far too powerful with their abilities. The game is pay to win..Version: 1.2.9 - FB login fix

CrashesHaven’t been able to play because it crashes upon opening on an iPad mini. (Both iPad minis belonging to my kids).Version: 1.1.2

GAME CRASHESI enjoy playing the game, when it works. Whenever I play with friends it just crashes and freezes. I do not think this is acceptable for a game I have paid for..Version: 1.2.5

Do not get this gameI want my money as is does not work it keeps crashing..Version: 1.1.2

Play with friends crashesSo annoying, playing against my wife 4,500 miles away and either my game ends or her’s does. Then a PVE will take over and we still think we are playing one another until one of us said a new code. It’s beyond frustrating because it happens 75% of the time. Otherwise the game play & graphics are pretty good. Just need to get the connectivity issues squared away before I play again. I feel like asking for my money back having only downloaded the game 24hrs ago..Version: 1.2.2

Terrible for online multiplayer.If yours or your opponents connection drops it replaces the player with AI to finish the game. It never tells you this or indicates that you’re playing against AI so you never know if you’re still playing against your friends or not. 1/10.Version: 1.2.2

USELESS for online playPurchased the Hasbro Game bundle with Life, Battleship, Clue, and Monopoly to play with my girlfriend during quarantine as a fun online game date night. It is IMPOSSIBLE to connect to each other, start a game, and you can forget about even coming close to finishing an online game against a friend. This is a complete waste of money and time and it will only lead to a frustrating experience if you’re planning on trying to play virtually with your friends online. 0/10 would recommend..Version: 1.2.2

AS OF SEPTEMBER 29 playing with FRIENDS DOES NOT WORKERROR INVALID CODE OVER AND OVER AND OVER PLEASE FIX IT!.Version: 1.3.2

Inferior to old versionWas a happy user of the old version which was discontinued with the move to 64bit. This version has no local pass and play multiplayer or Bluetooth multiplayer. Old version was a great little game. Forced online play is a sad product of the times I guess..Version: 1.1.2

Good but suggestionI love this game very much, all round good game play. HOWEVER, can we get some equality and have a female character for free too. Why should be have to pay to unlock a female character. Why are there only men playable. Please change this.Version: 1.2.5

Great game but online/friends play always disconnects and won’t reconnectAlways loses game progress and ruins the moment. Really could have been a great game and single player mode is but the multiplayer issues really let it down. Very sad and disappointing🙁 Update July 2020: Still disconnects. Also why is there no female character by default? Why is this behind a paywall? Why does the female character have to be sexy? Why not an old women as the men are? Get yourself together Marmalade game studios Update August 2020: Still crashes playing network multiplayer even after ‘Bug fix updates’. So sad.Version: 1.2.5

Waste of moneyGames by this company are a waste of money. Buy the game then you need to buy things in the game to play. When playing online with friends game cuts out. Same problem with other games by this maker. Waste of time and money. Not happy.Version: 1.2.5

FeatureHey there, Great game and all but the only problem is that your friends have to have the game. Unlike the game of life which is made by you, where you can play on the same device, this game doesn’t have it. I would love to see this feature so your friends don’t have to have the game and you can play in the one device..Version: 1.1.1

Multiplayer disconnectingMultiplayer keeps disconnected. Please fix.Version: 1.2.2

Save your moneyHow you can make such a terrible, blocker-level buggy game and then CHARGE for it, is beyond me. The App Store is supposed to keep away malicious apps but I guess they missed your collection. I bought this game to play online with friends. Horrible experience, bought the pack set of monopoly, battleship, Cluedo and Life. Monopoly works occasionally, and battleship is DEAD ON ARRIVAL. In the past 3 hours of trying multiple devices, ALL the possible online options (each game, style, character) NOTHING worked. Players could rarely enter into a lobby. If they did, after selecting our ship positions, we were stuck. Period. That’s how far it gets. Save your money and get another battleship app. This is pretty much robbery to sell a defunct app..Version: 1.2.5

Greedy developers !!!An ok game once again spoilt by greed. Charging 1 99 per different arena which is slightly different. Are you guys serious? Shame really as game is not bad. Avoid. One star because I can’t give none..Version: 1.1.2

Fun but annoying bugsThis app is fun but super unreliable, so many times it says the internet is gone and then the whole game disappears. Annoying when you’re playing a friend.Version: 1.2.2

MrWould give it zero stars. Expensive, plus locked content despite how much you've already paid. Then I can't even play a single game without it crashing. Sometimes it crashes just in the menu. I want a refund..Version: 1.2.5

Keeps crashing and not able to play at all!!!!I love battleship when I was a kid. Thought I download it.. when playing online or against my friends... it keeps crashing.. completely ruined my experience of this game... don’t even bother downloading it... waste of money and too much it costs in my opinion.. not happy... this needs to be fixed ASAP!!!!.Version: 1.2.2

Multiplayer not workingI really enjoy this game but the online with friends has not been working the past few weeks. It’s farked.Version: 1.3.2

Do not buy!Multiplayer disconnects EVERY time. This game could be good, but since it doesn’t work it is a rip off..Version: 1.2.5

ConnectivityI enjoy the game a lot! But at times it keeps saying no internet when connected to 5g or wifi. Or there is an error code when the code is correct. You cannot launch commander mode from home page, you can select captains but it will not progress. You have to be in the other player modes to activate commander mode..Version: 1.3.2

DO NOT BUY. THIS GAME DOESN’T WORKConnection bugs everywhere..Version: 1.2.5

Super disappointed.I bought this game to play with a friend last week and we’ve yet to be able to have a successful game. First of all, you have to be online at the same time to play, can’t play at our leisure like Words with Friends. Then when we actually got it to work, all three times I was told I had connection issues and it kicked me off even though I had no WiFi issues, and I lost the game. He was able to continue to play as if I was there. Don’t buy this game, not worth the money..Version: 1.2.5

Pretty good, but messy GUIThe game works as you’d expect and pretty well, but a couple design decisions really bug me. Why is there the banner with “Your Turn” and “Enemy’s Turn” each time? It gets annoying and wastes so much time. There should be an option to turn this off, or a different way to designate who’s turn it is. Similarly, why can’t both boards be shown at once and be the same regardless of whose turn it is? That’s how the original game was. Personally I’d do it in portrait mode too because there isn’t really a reason to use two hands..Version: 1.1.2

Multiplayer does not work!Multiplayer keeps disconnecting. We can never finish a game! I want my money back!!.Version: 1.2.2

Game disconnects mid gameBuggy game - too bad.Version: 1.2.2

Developers CheatAfter you achieve a good level of dexterity, the system starts cheating to make it challenging, but in a very obvious and stupid way. As soon as it senses an impending defeat (like when you have spotted all of the enemy’s ships, by hitting at least one spot on each of them) it magically finds all of your remaining ships without a single miss. It isn’t even subtle, up to 3 ships in one single turn, while being as far from each other as it is possible to go. It does it so often, it’s incredibly obvious and disappointing. Very poor programming..Version: 1.2.2

Game is a ripoff due to microtransactionsSo you pay for this game, and not cheap. Then you have to pay again to unlock other captains/ships and areas. That’s BS Hasbro! Why would you let Marmalade do this? If you unlock everything you will pay what this game is going for on Nintendo Switch (which plays better). Companies making paid games with locked content are the scourge of the App Store. 🤦🏼‍♂️.Version: 1.2.2

Great, butFirst off, this game is great it’s as simple as that. It’s classic battleship but better in every way. My only problem with the game are the micro transactions. There shouldn’t be so many micro transactions in a game I already paid for. For those that haven’t played yet you only get half of the maps and only a fourth of the commanders. Commanders are different characters you can choose from that all varying different abilities. The multiplayer works well and you can even play with friends..Version: 1.3.7

Entertaining but missing key featuresThis is a flash to the past and fun to play. It’s commander mode with unique ship shapes, fleet abilities, etc is a cool addition to the traditional game of old. However, I had to take 2 stars off of my rating for the following: 1. NO TIME LIMIT FOR TURNS WHEN PLAYING ONLINE - this is a major overlook on the part of the developers. When playing online your opponent can take as long as they want to make a decision. I’ve been forced to wait as long as 5 minutes for an online opponent to take a shot. And if an opponent has a bad connection it should not extend any imposed time limit if/when the feature is added. 2. NO BENEFIT FOR RANK OR MEDALS EARNED - you can continue to earn medals and improve your commander rank but it’s a complete waste of your focus or effort; because, it provides absolutely no advantage in play or even any sort of discount on purchases. Another major overlook of developers. If they fix these two major opportunities I will be happy to change my rating to 5 stars..Version: 1.2.5

BadReally awful. Doesn’t even let you play a full game.Version: 1.2.2

Buggy waste of timeTried playing with a friend. Buggy as anything and pretty useless. Would not buy at present. Both on the same wi-fi connection with no internet issues. For both of us the game either kept locking up saying ‘end turn’ for one user and ‘waiting for enemy’ for the other. One user would get randomly get disconnected and the game would not reconnect and suddenly the computer would take over and start playing as the ‘friend’ making it seem like they were still playing... What the?!!.Version: 1.2.5

The game takes over every single time!My dad bought this app first so he could play with my kids and then told me about it answer me to download it. I never would have paid $4 for an app for which there are many free versions available. But since he already had it to play against my kids I had to buy it. I have never been so disappointed with an app, and cannot believe I paid $ for this. Every single game there comes a point in the game when the computer takes over and finishes the game for us. We know it’s happening because we FaceTime while we play and suddenly for one of us it shows we are waiting on the other player to take their turn but on the other person’s end they already took their turn and the computer took over and is playing against them while the first player waits around until the game shows it’s over or the computer takes over on their end too! I cannot explain how frustrating it is to explain to my kids every single game that the one they played was taken over or they finished the game against a computer because Grandpa’s end still shows he’s waiting for you to take a turn. It is so messed up. We waste hours sometimes because we will start a game again when we realize the computer too over. And I can only assume that’s what’s happening is that the computer took over - that or someone hacks into every game. Worst purchase ever..Version: 1.2.5

A Good 3 out of 5Great bundle of games (Life, Monopoly, Battleship), I would have given it a five but I found two big issues that give it a 3. All-around awesome bundle, however, the game of LIFE you can't play with another player unless they are on Facebook, everyone is not on Facebook, but if you're not on Facebook you can't a friend. Next, the Battleship and Monopoly games both have reconnecting issues during the games, it will delay your current game or it will kick you out completely. I purchased additional pieces and characters and the game Dont work properly I feel duped. 😢🤓💋 Monroe Flix💋.Version: 1.2.5

Doesn’t workFamily (interstate) and I downloaded this game in a pack so we could stay connected and play together. This app is so terrible, it keeps crashing on one person or the other’s end to the point that half the time we can’t start a game and the other half we can’t finish the game. Terrible. Wish I hadn’t bothered.Version: 1.2.5

Feels like a beta versionI really enjoy the commanders mode EXCEPT the AI opponents OBVIOUSLY know where the human ships are. 10 times in a row I am down to 1 two or three square-sized ship and of 30-40 empty viable squares to choose from the machine hits you first time. Just not fun. Second there is no way I found to monitor the computer's energy level in commander mode. Both energy levels should be visible. Agree with another reviewer the torpedo ranging tool is not clear or consistent..Version: 1.1.2

Doesn’t workCrashes , cannot connect to play with friends through Facebook , freezes..Version: 1.2.2

Uhh Sexism Much?Why tf do I have to pay to play as a woman?? Like in app purchases are bogus already since you have to PURCHASE the game but I can’t even choose a girl character without paying five bucks for it? Screw that.Version: 1.2.5

Good on the Surface, Lousy BelowPros: Good graphics Cons: Lots of IAPs. The game will magically switch over to an AI opponent when you are playing a person in multiplayer and your opponent disconnects - I don’t know how that came to be, but maybe one of the worst options to handle a disconnected player. Terrible rule where if you hit, you get to go again, which means the AI can quickly make a come from behind victory half the time..Version: 1.2.5

What do the other captains do?Gameplay is as expected, but lacks the option for “salvo” shots. Salvo mode requires different strategies so it would add more replayability. Another issue is that the initial purchase only allows the computer to randomly select 3 of the 7 captains. We should b able to play against all of them in commander mode, and it would b nice to have the option to select our AI opponent in offline mode. Developers should pay attn: this would give customers a preview of what the IAP commanders offer, and likely increase sales. The worse part is that I purchased all the boards/captains thinking that i would b able to play against all of them. Nope. Still only play against the same 3 AI captains. If they correct these issues it would b a 5 star game..Version: 1.2.5

Not bad but....Win or lose in classic mode—should be able to view the grid when DONE—to see where your shots were and where opponents boats were...the older iPad version does and when you the original game you always share grids so the loser can see how close they came. This app needs that. It also does not track rewards well...I have played the forts for at least four games and have credit for one game..Version: 1.0.6

Keeps kicking me out!I purchased this game to be able to play with friends online. We play several other games from the same company, however, i have yet to get to finish a game! The design seems great, but I only get to play for about 5 minutes before I get kicked out! If i join a game, i will get a message about 5 minutes into it saying “trying to reconnect.” It doesn’t matter if i have full signal or if I’m on WiFi! If i try to create the game, the first time the enemy plays, its done, it doesn’t register that the other player made a move! We’ve tried to play at least ten times, always the same result! I do not recommend this game!.Version: 1.2.2

Needs WorkFirst, the AI modes are very annoying. The way that it hits a ship and then knows exactly how to finish it is baffling. It will hit a ship in the middle, finish one way and then magically switch to the other and sink the ship. Why would you program an AI experience to feel like being cheated? Second, the current rules do not follow the traditional ones. Their new rules allow another shot if a hit is recorded. I prefer the original version where each player gets one shot per turn, regardless of outcome. There should be the option available for either way. Third, I would prefer a system that would let me highlight where I want to shoot and then hit a button to confirm. I often select the wrong square because they are so small..Version: 1.2.2

Don’t buy - doesn’t workBought this specifically to play multiplayer against friends and family, however the game drops out after a turn or two. Pathetic game, and a waste of money..Version: 1.2.5

A.I. Player seems to be amazingly luckyMore often than not, when playing against the A.I. character they not only win the coin toss, but their very first shot is a direct hit about 70% of the time. Also, earning medals - I can earn a medal playing 3 online games, which honestly, I’m not about to do. I’m not about to open access to some random people online. Sort of like just leaving the front door open so anyone ambling by can just pop on in. Got this as part of a game pack. Overall, underwhelmed..Version: 1.2.5

Terrible multiplayer.Terrible. Not only does the multiplayer disconnect constantly, when it does even temporarily the games are no longer consistent between you and your friend. Rather than pause the game temporarily and keep them consistent, it effectively separates the games and uses random moves. You’re basically playing two separate games against the computer rather than playing against your friend. And it doesn’t tell you this is happening. You only figure it out later when each of you compares notes (and thinks you won!) Stupid..Version: 1.2.5

So-soGreat looking game.....however there’s 2 things I don’t like. First, in the single player mode, the computer opponent is nearly impossible to beat, and second...this game lacks the ability to play the mode where you get a shot during each turn for every ship you have still afloat. Example: if all 5 of your ships are still afloat, you can fire 5 times per turn. It’s makes the game more fun as you want to quickly sink your opponent’s ships to diminish how many shots he gets per turn. That was a standard option on the old version as well as the electronic table top version..Version: 1.2.5

Partie privée : les connexions s’interrompent!Mon copain et moi avons acheté ce jeu pour y jouer ensemble. Cependant, lors des parties privées, la connexion lâche toujours! Parfois en plein milieu de la partie malgré une bonne connexion Internet. Vraiment décevant!!.Version: 1.2.5

BoringThis is the worst rendition of battleship I have ever played. I tried to like it but it’s just bot going to happen.Version: 1.2.5

Great fun when it worksIt’s great fun when it works but unfortunately is really glitchy. We had to try at least 7 times before we were actually able to play a whole game since it kept freezing so much. Any chance you can work on this?.Version: 1.2.2

Cannot play with friendsWhen choosing to play with friends, the app generates a game code and allows you to share the code. But since sept 26, when you enter the code, it ALWAYS reads “invalid code”..Version: 1.3.2

Buggy MultiplayerMultiplayer does not work most of the time when playing a friend. At best there is an immense time lag between moves, but most often the connection is lost and you end up competing against a computer without it being clear that you’re doing so. Don’t purchase this app if you intend to play multiplayer..Version: 1.2.5

Fairly good probably worth £3:99Good fun on multiplayer. Can’t figure out how to change my name without linking to facebook.Version: 1.2.2

Buggy Dont BuyI purchased the app in addition to a $3.99 character. Do not purchase this app if you intend to play with a friend. Four out of five games timed out over the course of me trying to play my boyfriend for a couple of days, once you’re booted out of a game you cant get back in because the app will take over and the AI is ridiculous with cheating. Oh, and you’ll get assigned a random screen name that you cant change. I’d expect better performance from an app that I’ve paid for..Version: 1.2.5

DOESNT WORKPayed for this game, and i try to play with friends and it just doesn't connect up. NOT WORTH THE MONEY..Version: 1.2.5

No pass & playFun game if you play by yourself or with someone else who purchased it as well. Unable to play offline with friends on one device where you are able to pass it back and forth. I understand it may be difficult but it’s not impossible to figure out how to keep the wrong person from viewing your board..Version: 1.3.7

AI Definitely Cheats; Explanation BelowDespite what the developers claim, the AI definitely cheats. Even on easiest settings the AI *always* wins, because it *always* knows where your ship starts and ends. For example: I was playing the other day, and my long 5-ship was hit in the center spot. It took shots to the right for the remaining two spots, which makes sense, but then it *magically* knew that it had to shoot at the opposite side even though it never missed by shooting the spot *after* the end of the ship. And this happens all the time. It strikes the middle of a ship, but it somehow knows it hits the middle and finishes one end and magically switches to the other end after the perfect amount of hits in the first direction, never getting a miss, and miraculously sinking the ship all in one turn. I don’t mind the “bonus” move after making a hit; those were literally the only rules I ever knew growing up, so apparently my family always played it wrong. However, the AI *magically* knowing exactly which spot of your ship it has hot every single time is a load of bull crap. If it hadn’t been too long since purchase, I would definitely get a refund..Version: 1.2.2

CRASHES!I enjoy the game, however it is pointless playing as nearly every time I play online with friends the game crashes before the end making it a waste of time and money. Really disappointed considering the game isn’t free, you would expect a game you have paid for to at least be working correctly. Would not recommend unfortunately..Version: 1.2.5

VsCAN we play player 1 vs player 2 on the same mobile.Version: 1.2.1

Really, in this day and age?The default commanders are all male. You have to pay dollars to unlock a female commander. Seriously, Hasbro this is not acceptable in this day and age. If you have three commander options unpaid, then at least one of them should be a woman. Also too many bills and whistles. Why can't you just play the game good old-fashioned battleship?.Version: 1.2.1

Commanders Mode is glitchyThe game play is great when it is working! Unfortunately the commanders mode playing with friends is very glitchy. It does not show uses of the abilities and does not show hits or misses at times. Please update and fix the app!.Version: 1.2.2

RubbishI want to love the game... but it doesn’t stay connected long enough for me to love it. When you create/join games it just freezes halfway through and you lose the fun.... frustrating because I paid for this.Version: 1.2.2

Fab game, but why so slow!!Great game, classic battleships that hasn’t been mucked about with, but the gameplay is so slow, takes ages to play a game, could really do with a speed up option so you can play a quick game if you prefer instead of the normal slow play it gives you..Version: 1.0.5

No pass and playNo pass and play.Version: 1.3.8

Keeps CrashingFrom what I have played it has been great, however it has crashed on the last five games I have tried to play. Sort it out Hasbro..Version: 1.2.5
