"That one game that brings everything you've experienced up to that point sharply into focus. A gaming epiphany... Friends, I have found that game, and it is Battle Bears."

BATTLE BEARS stars OLIVER, a teddy bear stuck behind enemy lines who must fight off unending waves of Pink Bears wishing to HUG HIM TO DEATH.

Game play is simple and fun. Use one thumb to aim and the other thumb to tap-and-fire.

AR mode requires iOS 11 and ARkit on iPhone X, iPhone 8, iPhone 7, iPhone 6s, iPhone SE, iPad Pro, or iPad 2017. AR mode is best experienced in a well-lit open space with AirPods or headphones if you dare!

Great game with a few glitches

Great play through & humor! I loved it! There are some problems with the main menu such as: the openfeint button won't work, none of the forum links will open, many of the screens in the store section only come up blank. Once these get fixed, I'll give the final star.

Simply Amazing!

So glad I wrote down the name of this game to redownload years prior. I didn’t have the storage space back then but I do now and this game was so fun! Third thumb joke caught me off guard 🤔 I can tell it took a long time to make and was very refreshing to find a mobile game so different from modern trash. Only features I think are missing is a level select and a sensitivity slider. I was misled playing the AR mode first, that’s for sure 😆 Also encountered plenty of gameplay bugs but no softlocking so it didn’t bother me. You should’ve included a theater so I could watch all the game over cutscenes I missed! Because trust me, I’m a pro gamer 🤓 The wolf was definitely the best looking, had to retry a couple times because the gun wouldn’t fire but he sure looked cool! Loved the concept art and it makes me wish the building backdrop was included. I can’t believe you even made a Battle Bear song 😆 Fantastic. Wish this game was more popular so more people could experience the sheer amount of work put into this game. Thanks for making it, very fun experience 🙏

A Legendary Classic Reborn

Battle Bears Zombies is back and its never been better. Originally one of the most popular games in the early days of the iPod Touch, BBZ is what sparked a legendary franchise that influenced the mobile industry in fantastic ways.

This time around, we get to see the wonders of AR in the new AR mode. I’ve played a bit of AR, but not to an extent. AR I always found to be a bit “gimmicky”. However, this game’s AR really impressed me and is probably the most fun I’ve ever had with AR.

The game itself? A true classic. In this remastered version of the first game in the Battle Bears franchise, you play as a young, robotic bear named Oliver who’s stranded on a pink planet filled with “Huggables”, pink bears that want to hug Oliver to death. You fight waves of them while finding new weapons, fortifying your base, and trying to survive until the other Battle Bears come to bring you home. This game truly shines with its hilarious humor, creative story, and beautiful atmosphere. I do not exaggerate when I say Battle Bears Zombies has better atmosphere than any other mobile game I’ve ever played.

The gameplay is simple enough to play, yet complex enough for strategy, skill, and a true sense of “playing a game”. A lot of mobile games are just “Tap to jump” runners that lack the immersion of normal gaming. BBZ showed us 8 years ago the peak of what mobile games can be as a game and as an art, and now it’s going to show us it again.
