Default [GAME] Navy Wars (now in the Market)

Hi everyone,

I've been working on a multiplayer game for a little while now and it's about to the point where I need to get some more people using it. It's called Navy Wars and it's a turn based game where you try to take out your opponents fleet.

Here are a few screen shots:







The game is a work in progress, so there will be bugs and there will be changes. It was developed on a Nexus S, a Nexus One and a Nook Color. It hasn't had much exposure on other devices yet, so this should be a good test. If you run into any crashes, please email as much detail as you can to navywars@dogsbyte.net and also use the built in crash reporter being as detailed as you can be when submitting a report.

I think the game is pretty straight forward to play. If you register, post your username here so others can challenge you.

A few notes:
  • Just a heads up before you install the game, take note that it does use Google Analytics to collect anonymous usage data as well it can also send anonymous error reports to the server if an unexpected error occurs.
  • Also, this being a beta, there will be a reset of stats before the game goes public.
  • The final version will have a few undecided limitations with the option of purchasing the full game.
  • The beta version requires permissions to access your logs in the case of a crash!

Where to download

Edit: The game requires at least Android 2.2

This looks like Battleship. I'll try it out!

Mentioned some things in game chat, but another would be possibly some kind of fix so you can spin a ship if it's on the edge of the board.

You can drag it to "open water" and rotate it

DONATE TO ME
It is kind of funny that BootsSiR tried really hard not to mention that it's Battleship (well sort of).
You don't have to worry really, the game has never been properly patented (Hasbro own the board-game though).
Just Don't call it Battle Ships (Easy enough). Cool thing it's the same turn based style like words with friends and Wordfeud,
you are definitely onto something here, wish I could test and try it on my tablet (Honeycomb) but the link seems to be down .

EDIT: tried link via my 3G and it worked.
EDIT 2: Can't create Account. It doesn't matter what username I want to use, It's never available and won't let me

Make sure your username is at least two characters long and is only letters and numbers. Let me know if that works

Received a few good detailed error reports but a lot of ones with no user comments. Please leave as much detail as you can!
