Naval Warfare Multi-Shot for iOS is Battleships for The Mobile Generation

Tim Brookes 23-01-2013

Turn-based mobile games, also known as play-by-mail games, have proved themselves to be hugely popular over the last few years. Millions of players have embraced their tactical sides and spawned huge success stories like Draw Something 10 Cool Websites Featuring Draw Something Art Draw Something is a mobile app that started life at OMGPOP but ended up at Zynga after the latter bought the former for $180 million in March 2012.

Naval Warfare Multi-Shot is reminiscent of the classic game of Battleships, except with a few twists to the gameplay to make it more palatable for the mobile generation. The game has been developed by a small development team of two people for the iOS platform, which means it’s a truly independent production.

You Sunk My Best Ship

If you’ve not played Battleships before – and really, I’ll be surprised if there’s anyone reading this who hasn’t – then allow me to briefly explain the concept. Both players place their ships on a grid-based board before taking pot-shots at one another’s fleet. The locations of the ships are hidden from view but as more and more shots are taken there are less targets to aim at. The player who sinks all of the opposition’s ships is the winner. Simple, fun, board game fun.

To make this formula work on the iPhone and iPad, Naval Warfare Multi-Shot introduces a few tweaks to the concept. Taking single pot-shots at one another over mobile devices would take quite some time, and there’s a good chance you or your partner would get very bored before a single game is done. To combat the tedium, each player starts the game with five shots each. Mark your targets, hit fire and cross your fingers.

Every time a player loses a ship, the number of available shots is reduced. Before the end of the game you might find yourself taking one or two shots per turn, but with a vastly reduced number of targets this ensures it’s not all over too soon. Because ships can’t overlap or touch each other, each time a ship is sunk the cells surrounding it will be deactivated, meaning you can’t fire at them which also serves to speed up the game somewhat.


The game is a universal iPad and iPhone app, and though both versions are identical in terms of features the iPad version naturally provides more space to plan your shots and more information is viewable on-screen at one time. In short, Naval Warfare Multi-Shot is basically Battleships with a brisker pace that translates into a turn-based mobile game quite nicely (provided Battleships is your thing, of course).

In fact, this game follows on from a previous title released by the same two developers which stuck rigidly to the one-shot per turn rules. They’ve learned a lot since then, taken feedback on-board and come up with this faster-paced variant instead.

HMS Game Center

Apple’s decision to make proper use of Game Center as an actual matchmaking service like Xbox Live 5 Ways In Which Xbox Live Has Changed Gaming – For Better Or Worse [Opinion] It's difficult to remember a time when games consoles didn't connect to the Internet. I'm now so used to online features being an integral part of the gaming experience, that it's easy to forget that... Read More is taken full advantage of here. In fact you’ll need a Game Center account in order to play. This is a hugely welcome addition and completely removes the need to register yet another account with another developer with another password.

All games go through Game Center, meaning that notifications are taken care of and inviting people to play is as easy as picking them from your Game Center friends list. The option to pick a random opponent is also present and worth noting, especially because all matches must be played against human opponents. There is no AI, this is a strictly multiplayer affair – like a proper strategy game should be.

Players can have up to 30 active games at once, with multiple games against the same person also possible. There’s a chat feature included for insulting your foes on the right-hand side of the screen and a quick match status can be accessed via the anchor button at the top of the screen.

The interface might not be the prettiest on the App Store but it gets the job done, and the ability to scroll through the history of past moves using the buttons at the bottom of the screen is a very nice touch if you blinked and missed the last move. This makes it far more inviting to skip incoming moves if you’re sick of waiting for the animation to complete which you can also turn off from the settings menu.

Naval Warfare Multi-Shot is free and supported by adverts, which can be removed with an in-app purchase of $2.99. There are also additional skins that make the game look a lot nicer available for $0.99 each though neither of these purchases are required in order to play.

Naval Warfare Multi-Shot is a fun and well-executed free time-waster that will strike a chord with strategy and turn-based multiplayer fans. If you’re the type of person who enjoys a good game of Battleships then you’ll appreciate the modern twists added to this mobile outing. The fact that it’s the work of two dedicated individuals who have improved on their past forays into the App Store is just another feel-good reason to check it out.

    What if someone belongs to a non-giveaway zone? Will a US address work?

    • Tim Brookes
      February 5, 2013 at 2:24 am

      It will work, but the prize will be shipped to that address. Once the item arrives at your designated address it is your responsibility to get it to whichever non-giveaway country you reside in!

      As long as you have a valid US postal address you can enter, basically. Just don't expect us to chase it up on the final leg of the journey ;)

    I find it utterly unbelievable that people are complaining they don't have a chance to win and how not "fair" this is. How are you people grown-ups and still carry this sort of childish mentality?

    Winning an ipad isn't a right! This is a kind gesture on behalf of the developers! Are you people kidding me?!

    Why everyone who doesn't have iDevice is complaining. As someone previously suggested do a google image search and you can very easily find the code within 2 try. Some one in the comment have also provided the answer. Please check it as well.

    I actually entered the contest and only then noted that my country is excluded from the contest. Too bad for me.

    Sweet Mother of Pearl, people! This really isn't rocket science.

    1) READ the Review. (Kinda goes without saying, doesn't it?)
    2) DOWNLOAD and INSTALL the app. (Just like you would any other app...)
    3) RUN the app. (You can't play the game if you don't run it.)
    4) Watch the initial splash screen (it's all blue, just like the picture above), and
    5) Write down the name of the object you see in the middle of the blue splash screen.

    If you don't own an iPad or an iPhone, borrow one or just read through the other comments--someone has already let the cat out of the bag anyway.

    That's all, folks!

    And most of all, please cut the guys at MUO a little slack--they're kind enough to give us the opportunity to win some VERY cool stuff as well as give us some VERY good info on a variety of techie toys, so ease up a little and be thankful they're available.

    You need to put the code in the newsletter. You also need to set up a way to register for your site without sharing a login and all the contact info etc. Even if I did use Facebook, Twitter or their ilk I wouldn't want to use them to login to another site. Plus it seems a person has to put a post on their wall to get the code. Lotta crap, not worth it.

    • Tim Brookes
      January 24, 2013 at 11:37 am

      Actually we don't need to do anything. We set up a system for users to login, comment, share and get rewarded for doing so. We've also tried to make it a bit fun, have a whole Rewards section for claiming free software and products (in exchange for points accrued from on-site activity) plus our users don't need to remember ANOTHER login and password.

      Without sounding rude, if you want to use this side of the site you need to follow the system in place. We're not going to change it.

      • CB
        January 24, 2013 at 11:54 am

        You either think the folks that come here are too stupid to remember a separate login for your site, or you'd rather mine the logins, contacts, etc from other accounts. Using a login direct from one account to another is sloppy security in anyone's book. Of course you're not going to change it.

        • Tina Sieber
          January 25, 2013 at 9:09 pm

          Personally, I hate to create a separate account for each site I'm a member of. I love social logins. And trying to make it easy for people is one reason we are offering social logins on MakeUseOf. We are definitely not mining user data.

        • CB
          January 25, 2013 at 9:40 pm

          Right. If one tries to login with a Facebook ID and pays attention, this is the info you're giving away; "Includes your name, profile picture, gender, networks, user ID, list of friends, and any other information you make public."

          Why does MakeUseOf need a list of someones friends for instance? If you're lazy and want sloppy security then using this type of login is fine for you. Not for me.

        • Aibek Esengulov
          January 26, 2013 at 10:15 am


          We need access to the user's list of friends (only user IDs) in order to be able to show the actions completed by his/her friends in the Activity Feed section on the profile page. No one but the user himself can see the contents of the page.

      When I opened the app it appeared for just a second only the first time I opened the app. 2nd, 3rd so on it wasn't there so be mindful of that. Someone has already said what it is in the comments above.

      It's logical because we're not exactly running a vanilla iPad giveaway. It's sponsored by the game developer.

  44. Anonymous
    January 23, 2013 at 6:21 pm

    So let me get this straight. You have to own an Apple device to get the code, so people who want an Apple pad/phone and don't have one cant enter to win one. The other members who DO own one commented that there is no code offered, or there are other issues with running the app, so THEY can't win either. Well, let me just throw my hat in and say that I HAVE an older Apple touch device and the app isn't compatible with my older OS. Having an older device is a a really good reason to want to win a new one, 'cause I already know how good things can be, I want the latest, I've already invested in Apple, bla bla bla.....

    Tim, you need to do two things: 1) RE-EMAIL the code and post it here so we can all enter and 2) honor the 64GB version to the winner, regardless of the developer's original intention. It's not Untapped's fault if they were misrepresented. If they are offering the 64GB version, great - if not, sorry but it's on you.

    You can make this right, Tim. We all know you can and we're counting on you! No judgement> everyone makes mistakes!

    • Hani Abdel Halim
      January 23, 2013 at 7:45 pm

      I agree :)

    • Jackson Chung
      January 24, 2013 at 12:18 am

      Downloading the game is a requirement for participating in the contest. And it's a fair one since the developer of the game is sponsoring the iPad.

      Plus, obtaining the code is not difficult if done right.

    • Tim Brookes
      January 24, 2013 at 8:26 am

      The giveaway will be for a 64GB iPad, as Jackson has already pointed out it was initially to be a 32GB model but got swiftly updated to a 32GB model. So swiftly that the copy seemed to have not been updated, we've now rectified this. Untapped were not misrepresented at all.

      Secondly we run a lot of giveaways, most of which subscribe to our traditional "points for entries" rules. You can find a list below:


      Because the developer is sponsoring this we've taken a different approach. I am sorry you don't agree with it, but the fact remains there are plenty of other competitions to enter and to change the rules would make no sense from the sponsor's point of view.

      Finally I'd like to say that the game really is great, so I hope when you do finally get an iOS device you check it out!

      • Charles Orlando
        January 25, 2013 at 12:44 am

        Well Tim and Jackson, I have to admit: after thinking about it further - and then checking my drivers license and passport, I realized something -> it IS a free country! At least the internet is, except its not a country. But if it WAS a country, it would be free too! Except for the parts you have to pay for.

        I think you should be free to create any limits you want on a contest, but you don't need me to tell you that. I was completely forgetting the whole "marketplace of ideas" thing. If people don't like what you're selling, they're free to go somewhere else, others are free to try to create what they think people want, we're all free to fail and try again, bla, bla, bla...

        I think its a testament to you site that the extreme usefulness and helpfulness of everything you have going on is enough to generate a feeling of entitlement among our members. I admit that I got caught up in it myself. After going over all the original posts with your replies, I thought of two things: 1) like others, I have a tendency to want to post early or not at all and 2) I can easily let my own sense of fairness get clouded by a commonly found, but not necessarily just, desire for equality (the Leninist kind, not the Civil Rights kind) I wonder if you'll get backlash now from cross-talk on other sites (not to mention right here).

        Take heart and stick with it. The day this site becomes a public utility is the day it becomes "MakeUseless" (sorry, couldn't help that one). You will be able to count on my continued participation.

        BTW: I took Jackson's advice from an earlier post and played on a friend's machine the same day as my first post. What ever specific demographic you and/or the dev are going for, you certainly have made it open enough. The game is FREE, after all. (ha)

      the giveaway code is the name of the item shown on the first screen after launching the game.

        Ok, I downloaded into my iPhone which is slower. I saw it this time and I can honestly say, ""It did not show on my iPad"". Honestly, it did not show. Guess it loaded too fast. Just so you know.

          Hey Don did you try killing the process? Double tap home, tap and hold on Multishot then click the X. Try launching the game again and be quick. As far as I'm aware we've had no problems reproducing it on our own hardware.

          Don't forget to check out our other giveaways too!

    Can't win an ipad unless you have an ipad. What a waste of time.

      iPhone and iPod Touch owners can also enter. We have plenty more giveaways that subscribe to our more traditional route of entry - i.e. points in exchange for a chance to win:

    I downloaded the game, or at least attempted to...on my iPhone and iPad it says waiting. Waiting? Waiting for what????

      No idea. Your password, perhaps?

    Nothing showed up

    • Jackson Chung
      January 24, 2013 at 12:15 am

      It appears for a very short while. If you don't see it, press the home button and launch the game again.

  49. Boni Oloff

    Where is the code, i have playing this game.. But nothing shown like you said in step one. Do i need to do inapp purchase to unlock the game?

    • Jackson Chung
      January 24, 2013 at 12:15 am

      No, you don't. Press the home button and launch the game again. The splash screen is the first thing you should see but it only appears for a split second so if you don't see it, repeat the process.

      • Boni Oloff
        January 24, 2013 at 3:30 am

        I at least got it.. :D

      Try entering some of our other giveaways, you can find them at the link below. We will also inevitably be giving away more iOS devices in the future, it's what we do!

    January 23, 2013 at 5:18 pm

    Well this is too bad... I don't have an iPad or iPhone. But I wish I could win the iPad ;( Not very fair contest. Shouldn't people who DON'T have an iPad get to win iPads and Apple products so they could try it out?

  52. Kshitij Verma
    January 23, 2013 at 5:18 pm

    Download the app to get the code? Ain't nobody got time for that!

    Thanks for participating! You'll receive an email from us shortly.. if I win you mean? coz I'm not receiving any.Also true of the transformer pad.

      Well, I was wrong. I received emails for them both.. sorry

    It is unfortunate that I have neither an iPhone nor an iPad to load this software on to get the code in order to win the iPad which I want. Most sweepstakes don't require purchases, and I know the game is free, but I still have to purchase an iPad in order to win an iPad. I would have to say that the "giveaway" is biased towards those that already have an IOS device. I do have a MacBook Pro and it is unfortunate that this game was not also developed for the computer (OSX) as well.

    • Jackson Chung
      January 24, 2013 at 12:10 am

      I'm afraid downloading the game is a requirement for this contest. It's not bias, it's just a requirement.

    January 23, 2013 at 5:03 pm

    I do not own either an IPad or an IPhone & I'm sorry that you feel that you have to make it so if you do not have one than you are out of luck
    If you want to be truly honest than your contest, now & in the future, should be for everyone
    Sorry if you feel that the wayt of the I**** is the way to go but I do not truly think so

    • Tim Brookes
      January 24, 2013 at 8:12 am

      What's not being honest? We organised the giveaway with the developer who wanted to offer an iPad for downloading his game - this is a nice gesture, and great for iPhone and iPod Touch users or (as some have proven above) search sleuths who found out by other means.

      I don't mean to sound rude, but there's no entitlement to entry. We have tons of other giveaways for you to enter, but even then you need to exchange points - they're still not open to "everyone".

    January 23, 2013 at 5:03 pm

    I would enter but I, like other commenters, don't have an iPad or iPhone, so I can't enter to win one. I don't think you all thought this through very carefully.

    • Jackson Chung
      January 24, 2013 at 12:08 am

      Then just sit this one out. We organise giveaways every week. You're not missing out on much.

    • Jackson Chung

      Borrow someone else's. Problem solved.

  58. Peter Stewart
    January 23, 2013 at 5:00 pm

    Yes - I speak English. Maybe MUO does not given that the email subject line and article header list the giveaway as a 64GB iPad, but in the body of the article it downgrades to 32GB.

    Attention to detail, please!?

    • Tina Sieber
      January 23, 2013 at 6:13 pm

      Thanks for the heads-up, Peter!

    • Jackson Chung

      Originally, we planned on giving away a 32GB iPad, but decided to sweeten the deal.

    the code is something you would find on a boat, to keep from floating away

    Great idea!! give away the product that would play the game that has the code to win the product that plays the game. Brilliant idea!!!

    • Jackson Chung
      January 24, 2013 at 12:05 am

      Nope, you could also play the game on an iPhone or iPod touch. Or borrow someone else's device. Don't give up so easily!

    January 23, 2013 at 4:32 pm

    oh' c'mon guys, i dont have any apple products YET, but on the third try I got the answer right! :D (do a google image search for hints)

  63. Derryl
    January 23, 2013 at 4:24 pm

    Um, you need an ipad to run the game to win an ipad.

    Okay, I'll pass this time!


    • Jackson Chung
      January 24, 2013 at 12:04 am

      Actually, you can also use an iPhone or iPod touch. Doesn't necessarily need to be an iPad, but you would have known about that if you read the review.

  64. Anthony Russo
    January 23, 2013 at 4:14 pm

    I don't have an ipad or iphone either!

    • Jackson Chung
      January 24, 2013 at 12:04 am

      Chill out and let others contend for this iPad. We'll give something else away today and on Monday, and next Thursday. In fact, we have giveaways every week, so you can look forward to that instead.

    No Giveaway code ever appeared after downloading the game and opening it up..

    downloaded the game, launched it.... stared at the screen for minutes... nothing appeared, no game code....

    • Jackson Chung
      January 24, 2013 at 12:02 am

      The splash screen is the very first thing you see after launching the game. If you don't see it, press the Home button and start the game again. It's only visible for a split second.

      • Austin Halsell
        January 24, 2013 at 9:41 pm

        Oh, it's kind of a puzzler! I thought I was having the same problem, but I wasn't. I expected there to be a word, but the code is actually the picture on the splash screen, rather than a word that flashes. Tricky tricky!

    • Dale Miller
      January 23, 2013 at 10:18 pm

      Agreed, how are we suppose to get the code if we don't own an apple product. It isn't a fair giveaway.

    • Jackson Chung
      January 24, 2013 at 12:01 am

      It's an entry requirement. If you don't have an iOS device, you'll have to sit this giveaway out, I'm afraid. But don't sweat it. We run giveaways every week.
