Hmmm, well, it's Battleships, innit? Three quid might seem quite a good buy for an Amiga game, but surely it's a little expensive for a paid of paper and a pencil - which, let's face it, is all you need for a decent game of Battleships, should you ever feel inclined to snuggle down into it. Obviously not the most promising licence ever (my mad Grandpa claims he invented it), but (original publishers) Elite tried to make it vaguely entertaining by adding digitised speech and actual gun fire.

Of course, this didn't help at all - the actual gameplay is no more interesting than the original paper version, although games are far quicker as here you take multiple shots at a time. On the Amiga it's a non-starter though, and nowhere near as good as the electronic board game version either. Avoid.
