Finding fun games to play on all of your screens has become something most — if not all — do. So far the pickings on Android Wear devices has been pretty slim, and with good reason. The battery life concerns alone are enough to make you wonder. You Sunk might be changing that, with a fun and engaging game available to be played entirely from your wrist. Sink enemy battleships, avoid hitting friendly ships, and knock enemy torpedos out before they sink you.
You need to time things so that ships go down on your first volley as well, or you may end up having to shoot down multiple enemy missiles aimed for you.
Playing the game might be more fun that it ought to be, and that's a good thing. You shoot down enemy vessels while trying to make sure that neither you, nor friendly ships in the water go down instead. Your radar will let you know where other naval vessels are sailing, which is handy particularly if there is a torpedo coming your way. To navigate the high seas you just need to swipe left or right, and your periscope view will swing, showing you what is in that portion of the sea. You need to time things so that ships go down on your first volley as well, or you may end up having to shoot down multiple enemy missiles aimed for you. It's a simple premise, and the gameplay is just as simple, but it's an awesome way to simulate playing an old school Nintendo, and right from your wrist.
The gameplay has three difficulty levels; easy, medium and hard. The game itself is both simple, and addictive. The top half of your screen is what you see looking out of a periscope, or view finder. At the bottom of the screen is a radar showing you other vessels, an array of missiles you can use, and a red button used to fire your ammunition.
Ships appear at variant distances, which means you need to time when your torpedos are fired to make sure they hit. Enemy ships appear in black, and will fire missiles at you as well, they are red shapes moving towards you through the water. To avoid getting blown up, shoot the enemy torpedo while it, or they are inbound. Be careful when you're firing though, white ships are friendly and blowing them up will end the game for you.
The game is split into levels, and they become progressively harder as you move along. Up at the top of the screen, you'll see your high score displayed. There are three different kinds of ammunition to use, and each one is a bit different. This comes in handy when enemy ships try to hide behind friendly vessels to keep you from sinking them.
From top to bottom, You Sunk is a fun, addictive game. It's challenging without being frustrating, and getting your high score up can easily become addictive. For the awesome price of free, it's definitely worth at least a look. With the variety it offers, and a different take on what an Android Wear game looks like, we definitely recommend checking this one out.
