Battleship is based on the popular board game of the same name. The goal of the game is to sink all of the opponents ships before they sink all of yours. You place your ships on a 12x8 grid strategically so that the opponent will have a difficult time finding your ships. You can also use powerups that fire multiple shots at once.
The NES adaptation of the game received mixed reviews, but slightly on the positive side. Whenever you fire a missile at an enemy, a cutscene shows whether the missile hit or missed the opponent.
The game has a short soundtrack, especially for 1993, but to be fair, its appropriate for a board game video game. This game was the only NES game composed by Mark Knight. While the rest of the development team was from the United States, they hired Mark who was at Mindscape's UK division.
If you look at the recordings here, you'll notice the North American recording has six songs while the European version only has five. This is due to the ending theme in the North American version being stripped from the European version. In that version, the title screen music plays on the end screen instead. It is presumed that the reason for its removal was due to the additional text for the other languages the European version provides, and that they couldn't fit the song in.
Mark's soundtrack was later used in the Game Gear version, which is a straight adaptation of the NES version. However, Mark wasn't involved with that version.
