Games for the iPad - Battle Fleet

For the readers of the blog who have an iPad: check out the naval game Battle Fleet.

If you get it, would you be so kind to report back, please? :)

It's a turn-based artillery game - you select ships, move them, fire their weapons, end turn and repeat.

Turns are relatively widely spaced - your ship can move about 5-6 lengths in one, and from turn to turn you can issue complete changes in speed (full speed ahead in one, reverse in the next).

Your ship's various guns have firing arcs, which seems to be the main reason to rotate your vessels. Firing is top-down angle + power (for distance).

I haven't actually hit anything yet.

Agree with the last poster. Just a moving artillery platform. Good for those of us starved for true wargames for the IPad but still very unrealistic.

Thanks guys for the detailed description. I will try to move your comments up on the main post.

Thanks for writing about Battle Fleet! The game was updated this week with new missions and a full app review on if you want to learn more about it.

It's interesting naval game for iPad. Game's strategy and tank style aiming is quite unique from any other iPad games.
