How do I make a Battleships game for the Iphone?

I'm new to programming, I've done some tutorials and I feel I'm making progress with this but I would like to make a full game like battleships.

Can anyone help me out with this?

I'm trying to learn cocos2d-Iphone so I would like to use that if possible. David

  • \$\begingroup\$ I've been playing around with cocos2d, made a bunch of tutorials, simple games from tutorials, reading, trying different things with xcode and interfacebuilder, learning photoshop..... I want to know if there is source code to look at as a reference, someone to tutor me and teach me the tricks, help me solve problems etc. \$\endgroup\$ – David Holmes Aug 7 '10 at 23:51
  • \$\begingroup\$ My suspicion is that the question you should be asking is not "How to make a battleships game" - because if you're familiar enough with programming, battleships will be easy. Instead, as bummzack suggested, start with something ridiculously simple. \$\endgroup\$ – Smashery Aug 10 '10 at 1:23

Since you already started learning, why not go ahead and try to implement something? Maybe start with a simpler game-concept (like Tic-Tac-Toe) to get a grip of all the things involved (code, graphics, sound, etc.). Then post more specific questions here as you move along. Since your question is a bit "broad" to say the least.
