# Python : battleship you should write a simplified version of game

Battleship You should write a  simplified version of game Battleship. While the game is normally played  with two users, we consider only one player. You don’t need to write  any artificial intelligence for the other player, this is a simplified  version – I will play as a player trying to hit computer’s ship with the  lowest number of shots possible. There are many different versions of  Battleship game. You can read about then on Wikipedia. However, you will  have to make a simplified version and here are steps you need to have:  1. Ask player about field size N and then generate a square field NxN  size. The most typical size is 10 by 10 but your game is flexible and  accept any size. Put zeros in every empty cell of the field. Example:  empty field of 6 by 6 [0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0] [0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0] [0, 0, 0, 0,  0, 0] [0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0] [0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0] [0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0] 2.  Create and randomly place just one ship of length 5 cells. The ship can  be placed vertically or horizontally (again – randomly). To place a  ship, you change values of the cells on the field to 1. Obviously, the  ship can not go beyond the field. Example: playing field with the ship  (but you don’t show it to the player) [0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0] [0, 1, 0, 0, 0,  0] [0, 1, 0, 0, 0, 0] [0, 1, 0, 0, 0, 0] [0, 1, o, 0, 0, 0] [0, 1, 0,  0, 0, 0] 3. Final stage-playing. Ask a user about their shot location  and report if it is “hit” or “miss” and count a number of shots till  user hits all ships (or just gives up trying). Example: playing field  with three misses (8) and one hit (2) – you can use any numbers you  like, just make it clear for the player [0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0] [0, 2, 0, 0,  0, 0] [0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0] [0, 0, 0, 0, 8, 0] [0, 0, 0, 8, 0, 0] [0, 0, 0,  0, 0, 8] 4. Hint, you might need to create a custom function to print  out your game field as the standard command “print” will produce output  that is difficult to read
