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.
