Battleships is a Qt Quick example game of the well-known guessing game played by two people. This demo uses the Bluetooth connectivity module of the Qt Mobility API. In this game you have to guess where your opponent's battleships are on the 10 x 10 grid and sink them before the opponent sinks your ships. The game has both single player and two-player modes. In the two-player mode, two devices are connected over a Bluetooth connection.
