Avataria developer 101XP has released its newest title on Facebook, a naval combat game called Admiral. The game sees players building and commanding a fleet of ships in their own naval shipyard, and then taking those ships into battle against computer and player-controlled enemy units.

After the game’s tutorial, players will be in command of four small ships, and will need to balance the use of multiple resources to keep those ships in top operational shape, while also keeping enough supplies on hand to build new vessels. Players must collect fuel, coins, iron and more, with each being produced in buildings within the shipyard, or being available to earn out at sea or through quests.

Sea battles turn the game into something resembling the classic board game Battleship. Players can arrange their units on a grid, and opponents will do the same. Play becomes turn-based, as each user takes turns firing a shot at one individual square on the grid. The location of enemy ships is a mystery, but players have access to tools like mines and sonar that may identify their location without wasting shots.

In between battles, players can complete quests and will unlock new ships that require greater resources to construct. For social play, users can visit their friends’ shipyards, inspecting their ships for rewards, and also enter into friendly multiplayer matches that won’t cause any permanent damage to their ships.

Admiral currently has 145,000 monthly active players, according to AppData, our tracking service for social and mobile apps and developers. It’s now available to play for free on Facebook.
