The spiritual successor to the massively popular freeware top-down shooter BaboViolent2, Madballs in Babo:Invasion is an arena based 3D shooter offering players a satisfying and immersive experience in both single-player and multiplayer, including 'Invasion Mode' where players are able to design their own combat maps almost instantaneously by placing a combination of map tiles to create a never-before-seen map before gameplay starts. Truly, no two games are ever the same.

Featuring the recently re-released Madballs™ characters, Oculus Orbus™ and Horn Head™, from the popular 1980s toys best remembered for their outrageously bad looks and graphically colourful names, Madballs in...Babo: Invasion is a feature laden 'casually hardcore' action shooter.

Key Features:

  • Single Player — Hours of repeatable gameplay through 10 epic levels
  • 2-4 Player Online Co-op — challenge individual campaign levels with your friends or play the whole campaign in ‘Enduro’ mode
  • 16 Player Multiplayer — 21 maps to match all game sizes
  • 'Invasion' Mode — the signature mode of the game, players take turns placing map tiles to create a unique multiplayer map prior to each match
  • Voice Chat — Talk to the other players in-game
  • Classes — 10 character classes (each with 2 special abilities) over two warring factions, with each faction having 5 unique weapons each with two distinct firing modes
  • Madballs Characters — Oculus Orbus™ and Horn Head™ from the infamous 80’s toy craze as in-game characters
  • 5 Archetypes — Assault, Heavy, Runner, Flyer, Support
  • Deployables — active (rocket turrets) or passive (healing towers) can be placed in Invasion mode
  • Unlocks and Secrets — 50 unlocks and 50 Secrets to find during campaign gameplay
  • Action — emphasis on fast-paced, visceral action that is easy to pick and play, yet offers a real strategic challenge for hardcore gamers

Madballs in Babo:Invasion reviews and comments

I was quickly bored on this repetitive game as possible. I found the camera angle uncomfortable, the majority of the weapons found in the levels (at least the first levels) are blocked which created some feeling of frustration... I could not test the multi because it is empty, pity because it could have been a bit more interesting...

A game of the lot that does not stand out... And yet I have spent pipe playing and unlocking weapons and skins, as in the games of yesteryear. I Suggest you give it a try and by the way, I do not recommend buying the DLC Madballs Campaign Deserters Pack or Anarchy unlock Pack as its content you can get just playing. Unless You like it easy, of course. Xd

A very nice game. The graphics and audio are of good quality. The bonus brick break-that I can no longer get to work-(iPhone emulation) is fun. Playability is a bit borderline sometimes. Vision of the top, we advance we solve some puzzle but above all we Frag!! It is a pity that there is no longer the community that there was in the beginning with a multi-spirited party and events made by the devs!

A fun, entertaining game. Diversity of weapons and characters, each with their special abilities differentiated and their inertia also in terms of receding weapons, depending on the weight of the Madball more or less backward when shooting; The possibility of changing characters in the middle of the game, only those that make you available in Exchange machines, which gives a touch of strategy to a title that in principle premium skill. This seems a "biological" evolution of that Marble Madness, a ball in mazes, full of traps and many enemies but in this case you can defend yourself with a large number of weapons, find hidden stays, and save the ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ with the final bosses. Skill, strategy and a touch of humour in history turn this title into a fun game that increases a little more if you fit the variety in multiplayer with various types of game. It Amuses and fulfills its function, to entertain.
