Heute gibt‘s die Seeschlacht schon für nur schlappe 20 Huhns. Wer da nicht zugreift, ist selbst schuld! Battleships ist ein Uralt-Spielprinzip, simpel, aber super - einfach nicht kleinzukriegen.
ST Action (Jun, 1988)
Well, what can be said about a game that has kept thousands of kids fascinated since the dawn of sea warfare? The transition from scruffy bits of paper torn from the back of maths books to the computerised, mouse-operated game from Elite is certainly successful - it kept me quiet for a while, and it is the sort of game that will remain popular for a long time after the initial "play it to death" syndrome has worn off. The music is one thing, however, that I wish could be changed - too much stopping and starting makes the game seem very disjointed. Overall, one to have in the collection whatever age you are - simple, harmless fun.
Battleships is polished with some very nice graphics, which give the game solidity, and coupled with sound, the game does come alive. However, it is still only Battleships - the same game you'd play with pencil and paper - and that's where it tends to fall apart.
Zero (May, 1990)
Basically it's a competent conversion, with slight variations on the original gameplay. Instead of one shot each turn, you get loads! [...] Eighty two 'pee' for two biros and an exercise book in our local newsagents or £9.99 on ST or Amiga. The choice is yours. [Budget re-release]
Wir hatten bereits die - auch sehr gute - C-64-Version von BATTLESHIPS vorgestellt, aber der ST schlägt alle Fassungen um Längen. Die Super-Animation, der gute Sound und das restliche Outfit machen aus diesem doch eigentlich recht simplen Spiel ein äußerst spannendes Actionspiel. Bravo ELITE!
