Battleship is a strategy game where two enemy players attempt to destroy each others' fleets,
by guessing the position of their enemy's ships.
Boka Battleships is a Macintosh implementation of this classic strategy game.
It includes 7 different levels of computer opponents (4 if unregistered),
ranging from 'Little Johnnie' to 'The Grand Master'.
It also allows two human opponents to play each other, either on the same computer or two Mac OS X computers connected by a Local Area Network.
