review and a quick start guide for winning the game is a fun new .io browser based game inspired by my favorite tank game,, and a pirate ships game called The game can also be considered a more sophisticated and digital version of the classic battleships game that you play with your friend and have to guess where their ships are located on a piece of paper. This article is going to be a quick overview on how to play the Doblonsio game and I’ll also share with you my personal strategy which always helps me climb the scoreboard quickly.

Getting started

You start out as a puny and vulnerable battleship equipped with just two small side cannons which cannot fire all that far. Your first priority should be to collect the various gold, silver and bronze coins scattered around the sea as these will be used increase your wealth in order to upgrade your cannons and other features of the ship later on.

About the upgrades

Upgrades such as hull strength, auto repairs, cannon range and reload speed should all be familiar to most of us from the tank game These are the abilities that help your ship become stronger, repair itself, shoot cannonballs farther away and fire them at a much faster rate.

However there are a couple of quite interesting additional upgrades available in that you can’t find in other similar games. For example the fishing boat upgrade allows you to spawn a small fishing boat on the map which will then sail off, but not too far away, and will start to collect money for you.

The Battleship and Man of War upgrades help you by spawning an additional battle ship near you that will attack enemy vessels and protect you from them. The Battleship upgrade is a weaker version of Man of War and they cost 500 and 1000 coins to summon, respectively.

The strategy

My strategy usually relies on upgrading to better weapons as soon as possible and once I’m happy with the firepower (3 cannons on both sides), I start to concentrate more on maneuverability like turn speed and movement speed. I’d say turn speed is more important because most of your cannons are going to be on the sides anyway and with a high enough turn speed you can easily turn your battleship around and aim your weapons directly at the enemy.

By now I have almost always spawned a fishing boat to help me collect the coins. It really does make a difference! After that I start to work on my hull strength and of course the auto repairs which is incredibly useful in case you have just barely escaped from a battle with a much stronger enemy and need a moment to recover.

Final words

I personally found the movement a little annoying and had to spend quite a lot of time just to figure out exactly how the ship responded to the way I moved my mouse. It didn’t make sense to me for some reason and I’m usually pretty good at these types of games. Other than that it’s a great game with a lot of potential, but I still believe to be the best .io game that’s currently out there.

    Hmm. The auto repair works for me although it’s a little bit slow at first. Have you tried maxing it out?
