In this tutorial you will be guided through the process of completing the development of a Battleships game.
To build Battleships you will use Visual Basic .NET and the SwinGame SDK. Visual Basic is a computer programming language that can be used to create a variety of programs, including games. The SwinGame SDK is a games development kit that was made by the Professional Software Development group at Swinburne University.
For this tutorial you will begin with a partly working game and add some missing features.
The game has background music, animations, artificial intelligence, high scores, and sound effects. You and the AI take it in turns to attack each others sea grids. The winner is the one who is able to locate all of their opponent’s ships first.
