Author's Description: "G6! ...Hit!" Many people grew up playing "Battleship." Let's get one thing straight: Battleship 88 is NOT that kind of Battleship. Citing the inspirations for its gameplay mechanics as Mechwarrior 2 and Asteroids, the game plays more like a naval drive-by-shooter at 30 knots.
Now's your chance to take the commander's seat inside of Battleship 88, an American 1-ship-army raging the Pacific while evading the merciless crossfire of enemy Kamikazes, Torpedo Bombers, Junyo Aircraft Carriers, Destroyers, and Battleships. With tens of thousands of downloads worldwide, ranging from Japan to Australia, India, Europe, South America and all over the United States, Battleship 88 has attracted quite a fanbase.
