Aim of the game
You have to try and sink all your opponent's ships with mouse-clicks.
At the beginning, each player has to place his ships; as soon as this is done, simply click on "Ready" and you can start, The playing field on the left is your own field, and the one on the right is your opponent's.
You can place ships by clicking on them in the "dock" with a left-click, moving them to the desired position on your own playing field, and then confirming this with another left-click.
The ships are automatically positioned horizontally. In order to turn a ship by 90°, simply use a right-click whilst placing the ship or press the space-bar. The ships may touch each other, but not lie on top of each other.
As long as you have not clicked on "Ready", you can re-position your ships at any time. To do that, simply click on the ship in the field and re-position it, or click on the corresponding ship in the "dock" and place it in the desired position in the field. If you have already clicked on a ship to place it, but want, instead, to place another one first, you can return the first ship to the "dock" with the ESC-key.
The first player chooses a square in the opponent's playing field and shoots it with a mouse-click. If he does not hit anything, the field will become dark-blue. If he hits something, a small explosion will appear in the square. Now, he has to try and sink the entire ship, i.e. to try and hit all the fields which contain a ship. He can only find out whether the ship is positioned horizontally or vertically with further shots.
Each player has only one shot per round, whether or not he hits anything. After the opponent has tried to hit something, an explosion will also appear on your own playing field, or a dark-blue field; in this case, he did not hit anything.
The fields which contain a ship to be sunk will be colored red under the hit explosion.
Whoever sinks all his opponent's ships first is the winner.
