Boat Blasters is a battleship-like game where you choose to support either Admiral Gully or Captain Arf . It is run by the ever so fearless Spivey, who can be found over in Tugg Harbour. It is a strategy game that increases your petpet's memory.
How to Play
The object of the game is to find all of your opponent's ships before he find yours. To start the game, you will need to place your fleet on your board. To do this, drag the ships to the board area, and when you are ready, click the "done" button.
Now for the fun part; playing! First you need to click any square on your opponent's board. If a fire appears in the square you clicked, then you found a ship and score some points. In order to sink the ship, you need to hit the other parts of it by clicking on the adjacent squares. If you are successful, then you will get more points.
If, instead of a fire, you see a wooden peg on the square you've chosen, that means that you have missed and you get no points during that turn.
If you sink your opponent's entire fleet, then you win the game!
When you get some consecutive successful hits you get a power up! Here you have all of them and their effects:
|Allows you to clear an entire row on your opponent's board.|
|Allows you to clear an entire column on your opponent's board.|
|Allows you to place a box on your opponent's board and clear 9 squares.|
|Allows you to have a free turn... one after the other!|
|Allows you to move any of your ships that have not been hit.|
|Allows you to hide your ship from your opponent.|
|Allows you to see four squares on your opponent's board.|
Hints and Tips
You should avoid placing your ships on the edges of the board, or next to each other. By avoiding this, if your opponent hits a section of one of your ship's, he/she won't accidentally stumble onto your other ships while trying to sink the one that they found.
A good game strategy is not to click on adjacent squares while looking for your enemy's fleet. The smaller ship has two parts, so if you click on one square, don't click on the next one, and then click the following one, and so on. You will be able to find them all and it will save you some turns.
