Each ship in The Lost Admiral Returns is best used against a different type of ship. For instance, submarines are effective against battleships, destroyers are deadly to submarines, and battleships crush destroyers. By utilizing the special nature of each ship you must force your enemy to make mistakes. Lure the competitive AI into traps, create blockades to protect resources, and feint to force the enemy AI to break their formation.
The game features a random map generator along with pre-laid scenarios, which allows for endless replay. Smaller maps can be as short as 20 minutes while larger maps can provide hours of entertainment.
