I would think that just about everyone reading this has played Battleships at one time or another.

This computer version has all the ingredients of the game and has been well programmed using good graphics.

The game can be set up to enable two players to participate or for one player against the computer.

You place your battleships on the board using the direction keys and the spacebar and the second player, or the computer, places their ships on a second board.

The players then take turns to locate and destroy their opponents' ships.

The players can elect at the start of the game to play a set number of turns, where the winner is the one with the most hits at the end of the game, or to play until all of the opponents' ships have been sunk.

Battleships is a nicely laid out program with adequate instructions given on-screen before the start of the game. Ideal for the younger computer games player.
