This is the first game I ever made. It was in Intro to Programming at Colgate University, where I did my undergraduate studies. I wanted to learn some programming so that I could eventually learn more about making games. Our final project for the course was to create Battleship, and I made this. My background in programming started in that course.
I developed it in Java. It felt like quite the feat at the time, as I used graphics and made an opponent that was very artificial and vaguely intelligent.
