How to Play Sea Battle on iMessage on an iPhone

Millions of people send messages through iMessage each day, but it’s also a fun way to play mini-games with friends. If you enjoy naval combat, you’ll have a blast with Sea Battle on iMessage. The game is available through GamePigeon, and our guide will walk you through the process of playing Sea Battle on iMessage using any iPhone.

GamePigeon Explained

Mini-games have been popular for decades, and GamePigeon is an app that allows you to play them through iMessage. Launched in 2016 by developer Vitalii Zlotskii, this all-in-one iPhone app contains more than a dozen games with a little something for everyone.

The app acts as an extension of the SMS messaging service and is free for any iPhone user to download. Their game catalog is subject to change but currently contains titles like Chess, Shuffleboard, Filler, Tanks, and Sea Battle.

Sea Battle is essentially a miniature version of Battleship. That game is perfect for two players, and so is Sea Battle. While you can’t play this title or other GamePiegon games with people on Android, we’ll show you how to get started with the game on any device with iMessage.
