Notes

Published on the Best of PCW software for the BBC Micro compilation from Personal Computer World magazine.

These compilation cassettes were published by Century Communications Ltd.

The PCW book accompanying the Best of PCW Software For The BBC Micro cassette states the program was originally written by John Edyvane, and converted for the BBC Micro by James Byrne.

It also contained the following description:

A version of the classic game of Battleships, in which your fleet is
engaged in action with that of the computer. The shelling is
accompanied by appropriate explode/splash sound effects!
   After positioning its own fleet, the program asks you to set
yours. This is done by specifying grid positions on the screen
display. After this, you get to fire three rounds, followed by three
for the computer, another three for you, and so on, until one or
other's fleet has been consigned to Davey Jones' Locker! The
display is continually updated to show the current state of events.
Co-ordinates must be entered in the form 'letternumber' with no
spaces or commas.
