Developers Notes

Dottyback Battle Sim 2000 is a game similar to Battleship but with additional abilities to better simulate a battle. Player is able to move ships and has two grids, surface and underwater. Typical ships and boats occupy the surface grid, The underwater grid is for placements of the submarines. Submarines are able to raise and lower themselves between the two grids.

At the start of every turn the player is awarded 2 gold bars. Every command requires at least one gold bar, some require more and additional inventory items. For example firing a standard missile at the opponent requires one gold bar but moving a ship requires 2 gold bars. All unused gold bars are destroyed at the end of the turn. Gold Bars will and can go negative thus some high cost actions will prevent the player from performing any actions in the next turn.

The ability to move your ships and subs as well as send your scout plane is powered by your Command Center. The command center occupies 1x1 on the grid and can be place either on the surface or underwater grid. If command center is destroyed the player is unable to move ships or send scout planes but can still fire weapons

a space on the grid can only be occupied by a ship or sub a total of 3 times.
