BATTLE FLEET is similar to the Milton Bradley Battleship game.
The ships in your fleet have the following values:
Carrier - 5 spaces
Battleship - 4 spaces
Submarine - 3 spaces
Destroyer - 2 spaces
PT-Boat - 1 space
The ships are placed on the lower grid by specifying their starting
points. The starting point is the intersecting point on the grid which
corresponds to the letter/number or number/letter combination selected.
If you were placing the carrier and selected the letter/number
combination B4, then the carrier would be placed HORIZONTALLY across
B4, B5, B6, B7 and B8.
If you were placing the battleship and selected the number/letter
combination 6C, then the battleship would be placed VERTICALLY across
6C, 6D, 6E and 6F.
A peg is placed on the lower grid where the enemy called his shot. (White
peg for a "miss", red peg for a "hit".)
Using the upper grid to keep track of your shots, you respond with a
letter/number combination such as F3. If you called a "miss", a white
peg will be placed at F3 on the upper grid. If you called a "hit", a
red peg will be placed at F3 on the upper grid and a red peg will also
mark a ship on the left side of the screen, indicating which enemy ship
was hit. The pegs on the left side of the screen indicate which ship
was hit; they do not represent where the "hit" took place on the ship.
A new feature has been added which allows you to use the direction
arrows to move a highlight box to the coordinates you choose on the
upper grid. Once you've placed the highlight box, simply press the
space bar and your shot will be made.
If your keyboard does not have a set of separate arrow keys, make sure
the NUM LOCK is turned off when arrow and number keys are combined on
the same keyboard area.
