Rubber Duck Battle
Rubber Duck Battle is a children’s version of the classic "Battle Ships" game. Instead of trading shots to sink different warships, Rubber Duck Battle depicts two duck ponds sitting side by side in close enough proximity that the ducks can toss small boulders over to the neighboring pond to capsize opposing ducks. When all five ducks in a pond are capsized, the opposing team wins.
Rubber Duck Battle can be played using two different devices (phones, tablets, etc.) provided they share the same WIFI network. If no WIFI opponent is available, the user can choose to play against the computer (“Solo Mode”).
Rubber Duck Battle features two different Game Modes. In Single Game mode, games are played until there is a winner, then the option of playing another game is offered.
In Tournament mode, games are played continuously until the tournament game limit is reached, then a tournament winner is declared and an option of starting another tournament is offered.
The game is played with multiple scoring options, depending on how many hits are required to capsize the opponent's ducks. Thus, to accommodate "older" players competing against "younger" players, the older player's setup could require targeting all four squares of the younger player's ducks, whereas the younger player would only need one or two boulders to capsize the opposing player's ducks.
In Solo Mode (non-WiFi), the Computer becomes the opponent and the scoring options are the same. In addition, the user can select the "Auto-Fire" option which automatically launches the Computer's boulder right after you launch yours.
When playing interactively, the setups of each two devices must match. The game takes care of this by automatically connecting the devices and then synchronizing their setups.
A 24-page full color User's Guide in PDF format is included, which can be viewed on the device or transferred to an online printer, an email service or to any "notepad" type application.
