I remember all those commercials, “You sunk my Battleship”, and enjoying the game of Battleship. SeaBattlSE by Toysoft Development INC. is a fun game, but recently they changed it to include using BBM and playing with your friends! Check it out…
I had to try SeaBattleSE and try it out for myself, especially since it’s available in the BlackBerry Sync Store. I have to admit, the game is fun. On a rating of ease of use and the way it works, it scores a 4.5, however in the rating of speed of the game, it’s in the 2.5/3 out of five stars. But my outlook of the game wasn’t about the speed so much as the novelty of using it on my BlackBerry through BBM with my friends. We had fun with it trying it out, and it doesn’t work until someone signs on to play.
I installed this game on my Bold 9650 with OS 6 and BBM 6. It installs easily. With SeaBattleSE, you can change your status of BBM to “Playing SeaBattleSE” , you’re also enabled to invite friends to play you through the game as well. Playing is fun, after finding a friend to play, you line up and position your ships(Carrier, Battleship, Submarine, Frigate and mime sweeper) and then take turns trying to hit each other’s ships. You can message through the app too. The first one to get all the opponents ships wins. The sound effects and graphics are nice too. I had fun playing the game, and we were able to get the idea playing back and forth.
It’s still a little slow, but I’m sure this will change with future updates. It works great through BBM and when you’re done, it asks if you want to change your status back to the previous status you had. For now, you can only invite others to play who have BBM v6, which you can find on the BlackBerry Beta Zone if you are a registered member or want to register, which is free.
SeaBattleSE is available in the BlackBerry Sync Store for only $.99! For a fun game you can play with your friends and use BBM in a new way, you don’t want to miss out. The previous version didn’t work for me, but since the new update it has worked great, the only con I could find was the speed, but the concept of it is something that I really like. The rating reflects the speed because I don’t want anyone to expect a fast game, but you’ll love what it can do and the idea of it is great as far as how it works with BBM.
If you’re interested in a game to play over BBM, have fun playing, and is priced under $1.00, then SeaBattleSE is a game you won’t want to miss.
