WiiShip is a BattleShips clone for the Wii!

The game Battleship is a guessing game played by two people. Although popularized in the United States as a commercial board game, first published in 1931 by the Starex Novelty Company of New York under the name of “Salvo”, it is known throughout the world as a pencil and paper game and predates World War I in this form. It was published by Milton Bradley Company in 1943 as the pad-and-pencil game “Broadsides, the Game of Naval Strategy”.

Players place their “fleet” of 5 ships on their “ocean”, hidden from the opponent’s view. Taking turns, players call out their “shots” attempting to get “hits” on the opponent’s ships in order to sink them. Strategy and some luck must be combined to be the first to locate and sink all 5 opponent’s ships to win the game.
