    Start a baseball riot! Help Gabe Carpaccio take vengeance on the unholy alliance of his former team and a corrupt energy drink manufacturer Explodz Inc.!

    Baseball Riot is a sequel to the fan favourite Tennis in the Face.

    Baseball Riot is a fun physics based puzzle game packed with slapstick comedy and mayhem! Take control of retired star batter Gabe Carpaccio as he goes on a crusade to free his former team from the grasp of Explodz Inc.

    Smash baseballs at various Explodz fueled goons such as obnoxious fans, biased umpires, leery catchers and more.

    Bounce the ball of walls and platforms to knock out many targets with one hit. Detonate Explodz crates to launch the baddies sky high! See the enemies tumble as hapless ragdolls and try to master each level by collecting three stars. Conquer more than 100 levels and save the day!

    Baseball Riot is a great physics puzzler and with a 5 dollar price tag on the Nintendo store it could be a great little title for rainy afternoons or the morning commute. However if you tend to lean towards your phone for those times this title might be better off left in the dugout.

    While Baseball Riot has a simple, quirky, challenging and meaty campaign, there is a real sense of deja vu. The art style and core mechanics are virtually the same as its prequel, and although it is aesthetically vivid and satisfying to beat a difficult stage or line up a perfect shot to obliterate a row of nasty foes, the grind you go through to beat it might deplete that addictive nature that puzzle games such as this strive for. All in all, the game ends up being a solid, but often frustrating and wholly unoriginal experience.

    This is a fun little puzzle game that’s easy to pick up and easy to get addicted to.

    Baseball Riot is a textbook puzzle game that struggles to add anything to the core ideas, a fun setting and plenty of levels don't really hide that this game is relatively uninspired. It's by no means bad but can be hard to recommend to everyone.

    The variety sticks out because of its absence and the difficulty level provides no challenge, which, when added to its casual but very limited technical aspect and the lack of other modes of play, make it into just another game that lends itself to comparison with mobile games.

    With over 100 levels, cartoony graphics, a low price tag, simple controls and humour to boot this is worth a few hours of your time but don’t expect too much replayability above restarting the level over and over.

    There’s no fun to be had in Baseball Riot, just monotony.
