    ALERT THE INTERNET! Just when you thought Spring was over, IT... IS. Presenting, ALMOST before the official beginning of the Summer season, BATTLE BEARS -1!

    Join OLIVER, RIGGS and the rest of the BATTLE BEARS on a space odyssey none of them are anywhere close to thrilled to be experiencing. Defend the flagship Ursa Major from an onslaught of confused creatures hewn from the deepest, darkest corners of the cosmos' disturbed imagination. Discover new situations where excessive hugging becomes extremely inappropriate and unwelcome as you traverse the many cells of the Ursa Major (now with REAL bipedal action!) mowing down hordes of Huggables colored brightly in appearance and disposition in extremely amusing and satisfying manners.

    Somehow improving on the divine essence that was BATTLE BEARS: ZOMBIES, SkyVu Pictures is proud to present (made possible by the overwhelming support of our first BATTLE BEARS game <3) the prequel of its best selling franchise. 

    *Enjoy free range movement as you dodge the excited embraces of the Huggables and swiftly return their attempted sentiments in hot lead.
    *Revel in Power Ups from the satisfying to the soul-completing as you end the insignificant existence of each Huggable with extreme prejudice.
    *Ride the "LOL Sled" down the snowy hill of brand new cut-scenes linking together the compelling story line of the BATTLE BEARS' adventures.
    *Cast aside your reliance on your dad's GPS and learn to read a freaking map as you navigate the many action-packed rooms of the Ursa Major.
    *Take the fight three feet off the floor with the more difficult RIGGS campaign.
    *Fight queasiness and stomach upheaval as you battle against thrilling and mostly disturbing BOSS MONSTERS.
    *Plead for sweet rapture as you attempt at least 35 VERY well deserved OpenFeint achievements. 
    *Get your hair blown to the back of the auditorium with, honestly, some of the best original music in any App EVER.
    *Anticipate some of the best and most exciting updates ever planned within the walls of SkyVu including new campaigns, mid-bosses and weapons (FREE if you've already purchased the game). Seriously, it's time to GET EXCITED.

    INSTRUCTIONS:
    Use your LEFT Thumb to move around.
    Use your RIGHT Thumb to HOLD DOWN THE RED BUTTON to look around & fire. No need to tap continuously.

    To activate SAFETY: Tap on OLIVER or RIGGS' backpack. Tap it again to ARM your weapon.

    A successful, improved prequel to the original. Its game play, saturated with intense action, colorful graphics and humor, is fun and satisfying.

    The amount of carnage on screen as you hurl rockets at a swarm of brightly colored bears can hardly be described, and the action in Battle Bears -1 is intense.

    Just about every action fan will want to grab a copy of Battle Bears -1 for its hilarious style and non-stop rainbow-spewing brutality that could only be improved with a multiplayer mode.

    We're all for the brand-new control scheme, but this pre-prequel has lost some of the series' more unique qualities.

    Too similar to the fluffy one's previous outings, Battle Bears -1 consists of overly familiar, repetetive gameplay in a sterile setting.
