Exactly As It Should Be - Classic Gameplay

I’ve had this app for quite some time now and it’s the only game I consistently play whenever I have time. It’s also my go-to time passer when I’m in the treadmill at the gym. Gameplay is exactly as it should be. It’s classic Battleship with cool graphics. The updates have just been making it better, including the new 3D views. The online mode has never failed to connect, and its pretty neat to play against people all around the world day or night. I did pay for the “ad free” version because, like all games, the ads can be annoying. (This is an overall app industry annoyance, not specific to this game.) Overall, this is the best game out there in my opinion.

Thanks for the kind review Will! :-) If we could, we would do away with advertising. Thing is, about 0.1% of all players buy remove ads (or anything of the optional stuff) and we would have to close down smuttleHQ in a matter of month. It doesn't feel good to be dependable on ads and I hope we someday find a way (or the industry changes) to change that. Enjoy the game! :-)

Don’t support this company

The game is pretty fun but the advertisements are all for an app where young girls dance around without much clothing. Not what I want my 3 and 5 year old to see when we are sitting around on the couch. Looked up what the app was to see if I was misunderstanding and it is exactly what it seems like, a video chat that encourages kids to strip for strangers. Developers of fleet battle need to get a grip on their advertisers and not help promote this haven for predators.

Response to developer:
First of all, you and I have never talked via email. This is our first interaction but the folks who grew up playing battleship are now to the parenting age so the idea that only one person would take issue with the advertisement is a little naive. If there are “thousands and thousands of ad campaigns” I would think you would be more concerned that this ad is appearing so frequently in your game and not at all in other similar games (probably good information for a developer)
Just because the ad isn’t pornographic doesn’t mean it Isn’t suggestive and inappropriate. I don’t have the name of the app but I am sure you can easily find that out if you truly don’t already know. You’re correct, I did have a responsibility too, which I took seriously. I deleted the app and warned others via a review (which I would gladly change if you are sincere and follow up with Apple)

Developer Response ,

I talked to you via email and was 100% transparent about all this. There are thousands and thousands of advertising campaigns getting generated each day via tens of different ad-networks. How should we, a 3 man company be able to check each ad-campaign? I'm also pretty sure, that the ad you saw was in no way pornographic, I mean you say yourself they had clothes on. And why is an ad showing young girls a haven for predators? That's a strange logic. Nonetheless, I copy/pasted the Email you sent us before and showed it to our ad-network, asking them to look for an ad like that and ban it. I asked you to take a screenshot and help us ban it, but instead you feel the need to damage our reputation. The chat in our game can be locked down (it's in the options), page 1 - we did this to protect children. My nephew and niece play our game, too. It was the first thing we talked about when we added a chat. We actually care about these things. But in the end, it's the parents responsibility to shut it down. Same goes for ads: why not just buy "remove ads" if you like the game? It's not as if there weren't options. You have a responsibility, too. Thank you. EDIT: A video chat that encourages kids to strip? Really? Was it an app for iOS that got advertised? Please send me the link via email. I will immediately take action. What's the apps name? Please also contact Apple. If what you say is true, this app has to be removed from the store. Not only that, Apple's review process shouldn't have allowed the app on the market in the first place. EDIT: Hello again! Since you wrote the first review, we haven't got any Email or review about inappropriate ads (and we get many Emails and reviews). As I said, I took action immediately and informed our ad-company, although all I could tell them was very vague. You might have noted that I'm concerned about our reputation, esle I wouldn't bother replying. I would inform Apple myself, if I had any idea what the app or whatever you saw was called. For that, I need your help. YOu said you looked it up, please give me information. Without information, Apple, just like us, can't do a thing. I respect your views, I really do - please accept my apologies for the ads you saw. I would undo it, if I could. But calling us "supporters of predators" makes me, and I hope you understand that, very angry. How would you feel?

Not quite good enough for me

I was playing Battle Ship as a kid in the 60s. I played this three times and not sure how long I’ll last. The single biggest thing I want or don’t know how to find is: seeing my ships and seeing everything my opponent has done to me. I play against the computer for now so I can’t comment on how it plays against someone live. I have to tell you tho - as a kid I placed the pegs in my ships myself. I also tried to track just where my opponent was going with his shots. This is not part of the game from what I can tell. It flips to my ships boards when it’s the opponents turn real fast then is gone. Don’t like that. Not for me. Back in the day you saw two boards. Your ships and where you land on his side. Everything was called out. You inserted colored pegs your self. Maybe some of you are too young to remember that. I like knowing my ships board so I could tell what my opponent was doing and how close I was to losing. There is a piece of strategy missing in your game. And I want it. I need to toggle between two boards please.

Hello Fizzoko! First: thanks for playing our game! I am an 80ties kid and played the game with pen&paper and also with pegs, so I know what you're talking about. During gameplay, have you noted the side button with the arrow on it, on the upper right side of the screen? Tap on it. Once activated, you will see both boards, once it's the other players turn. It's not 100% what you want, but at least 50%. :-) Mobile devices suffer from limited screen size. We have to compromise here, especially since we decided to go "portrait" mode only. We might add landscape mode later on, which will enable us to show both boards on both players turns (although we might still go with our current, optional variant and add special effects instead). Have a great time!
