Legendary Australian developer Halfbrick Studios has just announced its next game. Following up such notable hits as Jetpack Joyride, Fruit Ninja and Colossatron: Massive World Threat (reviewed in Issue 1 of our game discovery app) will be Bears vs. Art. It's about a disgruntled bear who wants to fight back against the art gallery that has invaded his forest by sneaking in and destroying all the art. It's the developers first true puzzle game, using grid-based movements and time-based gameplay as you solve the 125 challenges presented. We have the trailer below for you to examine at your own leisure, but here is a snippet from the developer's spiel:
"While pompous guests admire perplexing paintings, you get to rip them to shreds in this new puzzle game from the creators of Fruit Ninja and Jetpack Joyride. Watch out for lasers, spikes, bumbling security guards, art-snatching thieves and more surprises. Who knew art galleries could be so hazardous? Plan your moves carefully or race the clock to destroy all the art in over 120 puzzling galleries."
Halfbrick has a knack for finding fun gameplay in the simplest of places, so we're optimistic this will be yet another winner. The game is available right now on soft launch in Canada and Australia - so if you are one of those lucky few, you can grab it here.
