Minute Commander really brings me back to the days of playing Battleship, but even better since I can see the enemy! The game is about naval strategy where two teams battle each other and the last man standing is the winner. You can play against the computer or against your friends via play-n-pass.

Turns within the game consist of 1 minute blocks where you can do as much as you can in a single minute. You must move your ships around and also attack the enemy ships. There are also upgrades that you can pickup as you are navigating your ships around.

There are two modes while a vessle is selected: move and attack. During the move mode you simply touch on the screen in the direction that you want to move the ship. You can easily see where your fleet is located and also the enemy fleet with the radar. The attack mode is much more interesting as you select which weapon you want to fire, choose the direction, and adjust the aim vertically in order to hit your enemy. The air strike that is sent from an aircraft carrier is really awesome and very effective!

The graphics and sound are all top notch. I think this game is great right now and the planned updates sound really awesome: tutorial & nuclear torpedo (we can’t wait to see the torpedo). You should really give Minute Commander a try if you enjoy a good strategy game!
