Third-person multiplayer shooter


iOS: iTunes
Android: Google Play

Battle Bears (previously known as Battle Bears Royale), was a third-person multiplayer shooter developed by SkyVu Entertainment. It is SkyVu's flagship game. It was released on December 5th, 2011 as a free ad-supported application and has remained free since then. It was available on iOS and Android.

The name was changed from Battle Bears Royale to Battle Bears in update 1.4.2.

"Due to the tremendous success of BATTLE BEARS ROYALE, we are making it our flagship game and calling it simply BATTLE BEARS in the next update."  -Ben Vu

Battle Bears was the '#1 Adventure game' on the App Store in the United States for a two-day period from July 18th 2012 to July 19th 2012.[1]

With frequent updates, new content has been continously added to Battle Bears, giving the game more variety, including new classes, stages, weapons, and skins.

On December 14th 2012, the game was released for Android devices through Google Play.

The v2.0 installment of Battle Bears Royale saw Battle Bears Gold. This took form as a completely separate app including a whole new range of content along a redesign of existing features. The original app's support was discontinued, requiring a transition between versions to be made.


In Battle Bears, the player takes the control of one of the seven different characters (called classes). The players will get matched up with up to seven other players in a 4 versus 4 match.

Basic controls have the player use both hands to control the character and shoot at the same time (with button or double tap). Holding the device in landscape mode allows the player to use left thumb to move around in the map using a virtual joypad, while the left thumb is used to fire and aim on a second virtual joypad. Finally, the player can use a melee attack for close-range opponents using a seperate button at the bottom of the screen as well as a Special equipment item. The steering controls can be altered through the Settings menu to four slightly different modes.

Classes and characters

Battle Bears includes 7 different classes from the game series. 3 of these are bought through in game currency - Joules. The rest are much more expensive, requiring the purchaseable and hard to obtain Gas. Each characters have been assigned to an individual class in this game to not mix them up with the rest of the series. When talking about the Battle Bears characters, people usually just refer to them as classes.

Character Class Price Picture
Oliver Soldier Default Oliver-steamshot
Riggs Heavy 1 Joule Riggs-heavy
Huggable Huggable 1 Joule Huggable-suction-pose
Tillman Demolition (Demo) 1 Joule Demo-darkmatter
Astoria Sniper 100 Gas Astoria-sniper-viperifle
Wil Chub Scout 100 Gas Wil-pyro
Graham Engineer 100 Gas Engineer-Graham
B-1000 Assault TBA

B -1000

B 1000 is an upcoming class for BBR, said to be coming in Update 2.0.

Game modes

In Battle Bears, players can compete in two different game modes: Team Battle or Plant the Bomb .

In Team Battle players compete in teams of up to 4 players against 4, in a randomly picked stage through 6 minutes. The only goal in this mode is to score as many kills as possible in cooperation with your team.

The winning team will be decided on which team had the most kills in the battle. Upon a draw, the winner is decided by the amount of damage dealt. Read more...
In Plant the Bomb, players also compete in teams, up to 4 players 
against four, in a randomly picked stage through 8 minutes. This mode differs from Team Death Match as it is not the team with the most kills that wins the game.

Instead the teams have to co-operate and get your team's bomb to the opponents' bomb tube. The team with the most bomb deposits at the end wins the game. Read more...
A third game mode has been announced for future release on the official Battle Bears website, but has yet to be developed. SkyVu Pictures let out an announcement that they were seeking for ideas to a new game mode, together with the picture to the left.

if you have any suggestions for this new game mode, you can leave them in a post on the official forum, in the official game-mode suggestion thread. For the suggestion thread, click here...
