This is a... reduced version of my first battleship game, Battle Boats. I made this because I actually have a piece of hardware I'm interested in using: a little SSD1306 OLED monochrome display with 128x64 resolution. PICO-8 makes a nice prototyping platform for it - I just have to restrict myself to using 1/2 the screen and only two colors.
If people are interested in the hardware I'll make this an ongoing series of posts or a blog or something.
My first PICO-8 game! What do you think?
