~Multimedia Vector Battleship~

* IMPORTANT: When using the game sliders, always release the mouse button while the cursor is STILL over the slider!!

This was my very 1st board game created in ActionScript3! The artificial intelligence is pretty clever, so expect reasonable challenge here! ^_____^

If you have a faster computer, you can just slide AI Speed all the way up for very fast game play! Otherwise AI speed at 50% should be fine for most slower machines. The game rules are explained in the built-in help system. Just click HELP to learn how to play.

Sound volume control only affects sounds that are *not* currently playing. So volume changes will be noticed next time that sound plays.

NOTE: Game rules used here came from the paper version I have here on my desk. Keep in mind that different versions may exist with different rules. There is no right or wrong, just different versions of the same game.

Hope you like it and thanks for coming by!

This AI is good enough so we can win or loose by a single submarine. ^____^

Lol I was expecting the bonus picture, so I did my very best to win. And even though I got nothing, it was a quite dynamic game, nice!

Oh hehe, this game was made in 2009, and I only introduced bonus pictures many years later. I have to say I made the AI really good in this game, so the challenge should be decent. ^^

The most dramatic battles are the ones decided by only 1 submarine. :D

Good job! I made the AI *very* clever, so winning cannot happen by playing at random. That was a close call! :XD:

Thanks for playing! I am proud of the artificial intelligence I've put into this game. But in many cases the battle will be decided by small submarines. :)

I was hyperventilating, while trying to find the last sub... And I got it! Whoo! 'Course, battling artificial intelligence, it helps that I'm awesome at battling a human.

What I like about Battleship is that is allows for equal amounts of luck and strategy. The AI plays exactly like I would play, so you are basically playing against me. :)

If you look at other people's replies, you will see that many here could beat the AI, and that would not be possible if it were cheating. The AI in this game is the best I have ever done before, and I am quite proud of it. It emulates the way I think when I play. If you are playing at random without any strategy - then you will loose every time, but then it would not be because of cheating. :)

The 4 1x1 subs tend to make the endgame mostly random though.

In real war, subs are always the most dangerous and hard to find ships, so here it's no different. In many cases, the subs will decide the final outcome! :)

Oh thank you! This has been one of my favorite games since junior high school, and it was the first game I wrote for DOS back in the late 1980s. :D This is a Flash conversion of the game, now 100% object oriented in AS3 and with the best AI I could come up with. You can win, but it won't be easy! ^____^

That means you are running the game from outside my gallery, which is not allowed for this game. :)
