Hundiyas – Battleship game in JavaScript (June 2007)

jalbam profile image Joan Alba Maldonado Originally published at on ・2 min read

“Hundiyas” is an open source Battleship (aka Battleships or Sea Battle) game totally written in DHTML (HTML, CSS and JavaScript). Highly configurable.


It is my eighth DHTML game and was made in mid 2007.

Players can configure the game with many options. For instance, you can change board size, decide whether to allow bombing same cell more than once or not, whether to allow to place two ships next to each other without any space between them or not, whether to mark already bombed cells or not, decide who will start playing first and choose among three difficulty levels (easy, normal and hard) that will change the AI (Artificial Intelligence) of the game.

You can also change the game behaviour easily by editing many of the configuration variables which are at the beginning of the script. To change the game images you just need to replace them with others.

Official languages are Spanish and English.

You can find other modified and adapted versions of this game on the Internet, including one Opera widget.

This game has been tested under BeOS, Linux, NetBSD, OpenBSD, FreeBSD, Windows, Mac OS X, BlackBerry Tablet OS, Android, iOS and others.
