Naughty Bear slices up App Store

$3 version of Artificial Mind and Movement's homicidal brown bear game now available in Apple's virtual marketplace for iPhone, iPod Touch.

In late June, a sanguineous tale of murderous ursidaen vengeance titled Naughty Bear hit shelves behind cold reviews for the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. If the hefty price tag of the console version was too much to bear, a $3 iteration is now available in Apple's iTunes store.

Like its console cousin, the iPhone/iPod Touch version casts players as the naughty bear, a creature bent on exacting revenge on those who have wronged him. The portable version sports 30 levels set on Perfection Island and includes a number of distinct weapons, objects, and scare tactics for gamers to use.

Further, the game sports two distinct modes: story and arcade, where players can kill for naughty points and race against the clock respectively. Players will also be able to display their bear-killing prowess to the world, as the title supports online, global leaderboards.

The murderous bear takes his fight to a new front.

The portable version includes touch-sensitive controls and a new camera view. Said view will be from a top-down perspective and will zoom in during kill sequences.

I understand it's not really hardcore......at all, and that the online is only 4 player, but is it really as bad as everyone is making it out to be? I'd grab it, maybe not for full price, but if goes down to $40 or $30 dollars, then I'm sold.

It could work. If they did it right, they could salvage the brand. Backbreaker took a critical drubbing on consoles but has a great app.

Why is everyone so hard on this game? Gees, what's wrong with it? It looks awesome, I'm gonna give it a try for Xbox 360. But seriously, what's wrong with it? Is it to short, or to little in the way of gameplay? Us Wii owners would greatly appreciate it, if it was on Wii and not a hardcore game console like Xbox 360 and PS3 gees

I don't think the console version is worth three bucks.

Thirty levels for $3. Metal Slug 7 has 7 missions with 3 levels of difficulty. DS games are severly overpriced

Ehh, I'm waiting for the console version to hit the bargain bins or a fair price in the used circuit. I actually think the game sounds funny but if it is as bad or repetitive as the review says then it's better I wait.
