Battle of Warships Review

May 31, 2017

There are several warship battling games on Google Play, so it ain’t that easy to stand out. Good luck, Cube Software; Battle of Warship is on deck.

This one has one get right into it. Literally. One might be forgiven if they missed the tutorial button when they encounter the “Battle” button, but don’t fret; learning on the go is the name of the game.

But even before that, the graphics do make a great first impression. The cutscene shows the developer’s attention to detail and visual perspective, and even for the player that might not be a seacraft buff, the scenery should be a treat. The ships look like hulking sea beasts, and one can almost taste the metal. The physics are nicely done, with explosive explosions and screaming collisions.

The gameplay involves WWI and WWII era warships. The player goes to go into a battle consisting of two factions, arena style; the team that takes out all the opposing team ships wins. Simple. Rewards and goodies go to the winning players.

To start, one gets a “starter” ship, and can then upgrade it and/or attributes with game currency. A lot of the gameplay is intuitive, and strategy does matter when the actual battling begins, with time-restricted weaponry. In this war of attrition, you cannot take too much damage, lest you get knocked out and can only observe the battle conclude.

Fun all the way through, really.

The biggest complaint one might have is the absence of a tutorial. Now, figuring it as one goes is a worthy effort, and even somewhat adds to the game’s allure, but it does help for there to be an option in most cases.

A little bit of clarity with regards to the comparative strength of ships could be useful, especially with regards to advanced choice.

All in all, this one is a really enjoyable game. It allows for creativity, and the RPG elements just add to the whole package.

Nothing beats being a captain. The captain.

    It is a fun game that I really enjoy. I love it when ppl play it fairly and correctly. However, there are times when I’m left so p/o’d that I need a time out, lol. Some examples…
    The aircraft carriers are a complete joke in my opinion. The players who use them go hide somewhere (like in a cove behind an island) so that they’re out of gun range for most of the battle. From their “safe space”, they launch multiple torpedos that appear out of nowhere that wipe you out while you’re engaged in a great battle with another ship. Complete BS. Nothing personal…but the players need to grow a set and go fight like everyone else.
    While engaged on a long battle with another ship/player, your “teammates” will often steal a “sink” (and your reward) from you by firing one shot after you’ve done 99% of the damage.
    A major flaw by the developers is that a player can bail out of a battle at any point they choose. The usually do so when they are seconds from being sunk. They just bail after you’ve used up much of your HP and you get no reward…they are no penalized at all.
    Lastly, the battles are usually very unfair in terms of balance. What I mean is the game will start with one team having a far superior team of ships…ends up an unfair slaughter.
    I do love the game…it just sucks when ppl decide to suck too

    You should give the carrier a try. It’s hard to figure out but cool after you do. BTW. You have to hide because it doesn’t have any big cannons on it and it makes the game much more fun and realistic. You don’t ever steal a sink? Ya lying if u say no. Relax and e joy the game dude
