The hits just keep on coming. Today's delightfully twisted game is Battle Bears Royale and, just like it says on the box, this game features bears. That battle each other. With sniper rifles, machine guns, and cactuses. If you've ever played Team Fortress 2,  you'll feel right at home (though it's hard to seriously say the quality is as high as the Valve game, but what is?) with the class system.

There are seven classes of Battle Bears. Everything from the Soldier to the Heavy, Sniper to the Engineer, and one simple called "Huggable." Though that may be a bit of a misnomer, as his arms are chainsaws. I mean, you can try it if you want, but I'm betting money you'll regret getting too close to this guy.

Again, much like TF2, the game is currently free to play, though there is no shortage of in-app purchases to acquire items, customizations, or hat-...wait, there aren't hats? How can you have a Team Fortress 2 clone without hats?! Oh well. In any case, if you're gonna play, you may want to start sooner rather than later, as the developer is currently running a sale on some of the in-game items. So, have at it!

    $19.99!!! What in the blue fuck?

      App is free in appstore, widget shows it as 19.99 though...

      Yeah, that price is definitely very off on Appbrain for some reason. Maybe they launched as a paid app by mistake and quickly dropped it to free after and Appbrain hasn't updated yet?

    Like a explosion in a rabid toy factory, or a one man quake mod...

    Free to play, fortune to get.

    Played it, seems to me to be more fun that SG: DeadZone - open levels with no narrow corridors help gameplay a lot, and controls are bigger than in the DeadZone. Also it's more light-hearted, and you don't care that much when you die. Character animation could be less clumsy though.

    It's more like Quake 3 arena to me. Anyway free + intrusive permissions (find accounts, use accounts??) + "$20 free stuff.." so paid stuff coming?... NO THANKS

    Reminds me of the very awsome Conkers Bad Fur day

    Terrible excuse of a game. How Google has come to feature this on the frontpage is beyond baffling.

      Shut up. Bitch

    What's so bad about the game? I would like to hear some detailed examples.

  • Guest

    I was referring to Battle Bears Royale to clarify.

  • Rob Ruiz

    The game is free, not $19.99. I like this game a lot. I'm interested to know why others on here are claiming it's not good. Please give some detailed examples of its downfalls. Thanks.

    I play this game. It's damn awesome
