Battleship Sci-Fi 1.6

Battleship Sci-Fi v1.6 has been released.
The main feature is the multiplayer over Bluetooth. This feature is available exclusive for the FULL version (The LITE version will not let you duel over Bluetooth!). Further there are small fixes in code (stabilized network code) and updated Ads library (which does not require the LOCATION permission any more).

This blog gets reactivated in hope to get more feedback from the Battleship users and have an easy to use back channel. Please write to me first, if something goes wrong, I will try to explain or fix the issue!

Feel free to put your comment to this version to this blog entry, especially, if you want my feedback!


  1. Q:
    Hi, my name is Chris. I just wanted to know if I could play this game using (Bluetooth multiplayer) with a person that does not obtain this game. Can multiplayer Bluetooth be played with someone that has the lite version..

    Hi Chris,
    this won't work.
    At least not yet, it is a good point to think about. It is not easy to make a good cut between the lite and full version.

  2. I love this game and have played over wifi many times but it keeps saying connection timeout when I try and play it with a tablet. Plz fix this problem

  3. Hello shawn,

    this problem seems to be specific to your devices or network settings (it works on mine). Unfortunately I cannot help without detailed information.

    Please send the log file to me, so I can analyze, what is going wrong (see for instructions).

    Thank you for support!

    PS: Make sure both devices are connected to the same WiFi network (have the same SSID).
