Battleships are lots of fun in Lost Admiral Returns.  Unlike most Battleship Games, you can maneuver these massive killing machines to dominate the battle ocean.  You can also enjoy the flavor of famous wwii battleship combat with your choice of famous ships such as the Yamato battleship, Battleship New Jersey, Battleship Texas, Battleship Missouri, or any other battleship that comes to mind.

"Battle of Jutland" Instant Game #1

Battle of Jutland icon for Instant Game.  Experience the spirit of the largest clash of dreadnaughts in naval history.  Take charge of an elite group of battleships, or an overwhelming force of cruisers.  Carry the fight to the enemy, and prevail by outmaneuvering the enemy.

Play as the Battleships, or as the Cruisers in this world war I Battle of Jutland...

  Red starts with a core force of battleships, with some sneaky submarines and a few destroyers for speed.  Yellow has many cruisers and more destroyers.  Yellow is more numerous, but Red's battleships have a big edge in toe to toe combat.  Destroyer flanking actions are important for both sides.

  Victory is based on keeping your own home cities while attacking the enemy home cities.  Do not lose track of the warship fight, as the enemy will overwhelm you in detail if you concentrate on just raiding cities.

  Remember that transports are the key to holding cities in most Lost Admiral Returns battles.  Keep a transport in a city to keep earning victory points for that city.  If your transport leaves the city or is sunk, the city will go un-owned.  Win the battle by earning more victory points than the enemy.  The harder the difficulty level you choose, the more VPs you will have to earn compared to the enemy side.

"Jutland" has different warship distributions and layouts for every battle, depending on the AI level you challenge, and which side you play as (red or yellow).  If you find the current level too difficult, try a lower level.  To win a Gold patch, play against level 8 or higher, and win by as large a percent ratio as you can.  Post your scores online as either yellow or red and see what kind of scores other people have achieved for the same level.

 

Specific hints on how to fight the battle of Jutland start here:

  When playing as Red, keep your battleships alive as long as possible to crush the enemy destroyers and then cruisers.  But do not let the numerous enemy warships slip past you to your vulnerable home cities.  Keep your submarines together and strike at enemy cruisers before those pesky destroyers find and sink your submarines.  Slip your own destroyers past the enemy forces to his home cities, or use them to kill enemy destroyers.

  When playing as Yellow, be careful of the enemy Battleship's edge in toe to toe combat.  Maneuver past the enemy to strike at home cities, but do not lose the main battle of warship against warship.  If you do, the battleships will scrub your remaining forces off the map before the battle ends.

Instant Battles like this one can not be projected, so you will have to fight out every turn of the battle, squeezing out every victory point you can each turn.  Be careful not to let the enemy turn the tide of battle on the last few turns.
