  • The first Peer to Peer iPhone game.
    What? Yeah its true there is finally a p2p iPhone game allowing you to play real live people instead of an AI. What is it? The classic game battleship.



    The game works just how you think it would. Hop on your phone, place your ships, and then play. You hop into the public game and you are automatically connected to someone else waiting to play.

    What else? A live chat is included so you can talk smack to an opponent.



    I know I know ya'll hate web apps, but I personally find this refreshing. It's about time the iPhone's capabilities were put to use and a game was created to compete against a real live human. Also for you diehard web app hates the developer has mentioned that if this is a success he might take the time and energy to code this up into a Native App .

    I for one hope to see more peer to peer iphone native and web app games in the future.

    You can play the game by pointing your iPhone's browser to http://www.teamtpfl.com/iPhone/

    of course this will be added to our web app bookmarking program soon.

    -cash out!

      Were you playing on your iPhone?
      Otherwise, what browser were you in?
      How did you know you hit?

      I'll be sending you PMs as well.

      Regarding the "invincible" bug, we'll have a fix for that uploaded soon.

      Thanks,

      I got the invincible glitch to work by going to my history and then selecting a previous page from the battleship game. The screen that i got to said "Hack" (screenshot attatched) and then i went back and continued my game and everytime my opponent chose my ship it said miss and there would be a silver square behind my ship.(Attatched)

      Also, if for some reason the game is finding you an opponent and you press the x on the top right and then refresh you end up playing yourself.

      Also, when you say only one person can hit, and the others miss .. is this confirmed by the other person, or does it just seem like you're missing everytime because they're hidden so well? Does it only happen during certain times (first time you registered, private games first person to join, private games 2nd person to join, after you click "new game") etc.

      Good effort on this one - Is the technology resident inside the existing iPhone to be able to play two player games with another iPhone without the web much like the Nintendo DS?

      sky - I imagine there is a way to connect them to play games through wifi when you're connected to the same network (or even diff. ones). Also its possible through Edge, it would just require the program to consult a webpage and send back results.

      I wish somebody would port a race game or flight simulator that is controlled by the accelerometer and is just the full screen no buttons exept maybe multiple taps

      Dash - would you be satisfied with a drag-racing type p2p game, or would it have to go around a track?

      it seems glitchy with the positioning of the ships, but sweet!

      I'd definitely prefer a track. Only because drag is just shifting a couple times and it's over. Track requires steering which changes all of the time. (I do know it would be harder of course). Maybe start small? Like a "micro machines" thing, then if that works, step it up to 1st person and life size.

      i have just played the game and it worked fine, no bug, nothing....but I lost

      I thought that the bug was gone....but no, now I have the same problem again... the old bug!!

      I haven't played since the bug but will try again soon. As far as the details of the bug it was a public game, my first game, and if I hit the enemy it was impossible to know because it would register as a regular miss. I must have filled 50% of the screen in a diagonal line pattern and didn't have a single hit

      Just played and it went fine but thats not to say its no longer a problem

      Hey. I just pushed an update to fix the invincible bug. Let me know if you run into any more problems with it.

      Also, you should no longer be able to "play yourself"

      Let me know if you find anything else.

      Thanks,

      Ive tried it a few times but never gotten past the waiting for opponent screen (short attention span)... One thing, if you go to another page on your phone while at the waiting for opponent screen it brings you to a "hack" page. I'm guessing this is the patch for the play against yourself thing but just incase

      I'll try it again now!

      Its kind of hit or miss (no pun intended) with getting an opponent, kind of have to get on the game at the right time. That's why we're working on a computer version and also a way to tell how many people are currently playing games so you know if it will be long. For now I suggest you get a friend and start a private game :-). I'll be on it as much as I can so people can get a chance to play.

      Is is just me or has design been forgotten?

      Functionality is great but if you really want people to play the game and enjoy it, a clean and well designed interface is essential.

      Are you talking about how the design looks on an iPhone or browser? I realise that it probably doesn't look the best in a full browser, however it was meant to be played on the iPhone..
