It is now the opponent’s turn if you cannot hit a ship during your turn. If you strike one, your device will provide you with haptic feedback; on your screen, you will see smoke coming from the block you struck on the grid. Now, to completely view and destroy their ship, you must fire many bullets by estimating where the surrounding blocks are and touching on them.
You will be able to see the entire enemy spacecraft on your screen once you have completely eliminated it by destroying it. A dark dot will appear in the center of every surrounding unoccupied block as soon as a ship has been blown up.
Remember that it takes numerous missiles to take out a single ship. Therefore, if you want to win the game, you need to be one of the two of you to destroy all of the ships that your opponent is using.
