A former student of mine, Ira Fay, worked on this, so I thought I'd check it out. It is mostly the old Battleship we all know (or "Fleet" as the real old timers call it -- I remember playing Fleet with my grandfather, who would draw out grids on carbon paper so we could each have one), but juiced up with powerups you can earn. It's real simple, and pretty fun. Good lord, we are drowning in quality games here in the future... It's like the Renaissance of games... I wonder if we'll look back on it like that?
