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.

i found the "invincability" hack, lol. you could sure irritate the hell out of someone with this (keeping it a secret)
11-24-2007, 06:57 AM #10
it works pretty well over edge, and were working on optomizing it even more with smaller file sizes and better code structures. Finding opponents is kind of tough right now which is why we are building a vs comp version. If your invisibility hack was done in ie or safari please let me know how its done. I know its possible in firefox but it will be fixed asap. I didnt think people would want to play in their reg. Browsers but I was wrong

There's a bug that only allows one player to hit the others ships! I would guess right and it would say miss.

anyone want to play me in a private game?
11-24-2007, 02:05 PM #17
I developed this game with Zealth. Can you go a little more in depth with the bug where you hit your opponent but it says you missed?
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.
