Bears vs. Art Announced by Halfbrick, Makers of Fruit Ninja

Hopefully you love bears and hate fancy museums, because you might need both personal qualities in order to really sink your claws into Halfbrick’s freshly announced mobile gaming title. Bears vs. Art is coming soon.

As the brand new trailer above showcases, players will take recently constructed museums to task as their hulking buildings and idle populations threaten the wilderness of one particularly testy bear. The press release that accompanied the announcement includes the tag line, “Fighting the battle against pointless subtext, one painting at a time!”

The release details Bears vs. Art as an action puzzler.

Bears vs. Art is Halfbrick’s first true puzzle game, with small elements of action and speed coming into play during hectic moments. Players venture through 125 levels of grid-based action, finding the quickest and easiest route around every gallery to slice up the paintings. Rory rolls and smashes into everything he sees, all for the glory of taking down modern art!

Each piece of art is protected by sneaky security measures including lasers, spikes and mind-bending portals. Not to mention snooty guests, nosy security guards and art-snatching thieves, who will all make Rory’s quest more troublesome.

Sounds like it’s right up my alley, to be honest. I’ve always been a fan of Halfbrick’s work, so snagging this one for a look is a no-brainer.

Bears vs. Art will be free-to-play when it launches soon. It will hit the iOS platform first, so Android and Windows Phone owners like myself will need to hold out a bit longer.

Halfbrick’s next game is Bears vs. Art

Fighting the battle against pointless subtext, one painting at a time!

AUSTRALIA, Brisbane – March 10th, 2014 – In today’s society, even a single painting can be sold for hundreds of millions. Art galleries are havens of emotion, discussion, criticism and analysis from the most discerning individuals. Do those scribbles on the paper really mean what people say they mean? Is it genius or a fluke? Some may be interested in answering these questions, but many people simply don’t care. You know who else doesn’t care about art? Bears.

In Halfbrick’s quirkiest game yet, Rory the bear is quite bewildered by the recent art galleries cropping up in his forest home. Snooty millionaires are admiring their latest collections and proclaiming their love of fine wines and cheeses, all while Rory is trying to enjoy a cup of tea and a nap. Art is dumb to him, so players can now join his fight to rid the forest of these pointless pieces invading his home!
