Sink Your Enemies (or Parents) with Navy Battle 3D
We all love good old fashioned board games. One that has seen many variants over the years while being ported to virtually every mobile platform due to its time killing appeal is Battle Ship. In this case, XDA Forum Member lemp brings us another version of the timeless classic. The premise of the game is the same as the original: You guess the location of your enemy’s hidden ships and you try to sink them by blindly shooting at a grid array—simple, fun, and entertaining.
Navy Battle 3D is built from the ground up, with good 3D animations and graphics along with special options that can be purchased in-game such as the ability to have a multi-player volley with your friends and family over WiFi (WLAN party!), specialty weapons (takes some of the “guessing” out of the equation), and more. The best part is that the game is completely free and ad-free as well, so no intrusive pop ups will get between you and your mom’s battleship. Lastly, according to the dev, the game supports multiple resolution and works great on lower end devices, which means that it no longer matters if you have a HTC One X or a G1, you will be able to play this game with ease and smoothly.
The developer has provided a few codes to unlock special features in the game, exclusive for XDA community members! So, if you feel like having some good, clean fun while testing something new, please take a quick crack at this game and provide some feedback for the dev if you can.
Based on the classic game Battleship, NavyBattle 3d uses the same rules: You put your 5 ships on your grid and you try to sink the ships of the opponent.
