HTML5 developer CoolGames has partnered with Hasbro to bring its board game Battleship to Facebook's Instant Games platform.

The game is a faithful adaptation of the original board game, with some power-ups thrown in to give it a fresh feel. Players can battle against several of their friends at once in turn-based matches, or face-off against random players not in their Facebook contacts.

CoolGames was an early adopter of the Facebook Instant Games platform. It has already produced games such as Arkanoid, Snake, and Jewel Academy for the service.

Iconic

"We're excited that we could bring this iconic game, in close collaboration with Hasbro, to the largest social network in the world," said Laurens Rutten, Founder and CEO of CoolGames.

"Enhanced by the many social and rich gameplay features that Facebook Instant Games offers, millions of new users can now experience Battleship on their smartphones."

Facebook Instant Games launched almost one year ago to allow Messenger users to play games with one another from the app. It has only recently started to experiment with monetisation.
