Battle Bears Gold (previously known as Battle Bears, Epic Bear Fight and Battle Bears Royale), is a third-person multiplayer shooter developed by SkyVu Entertainment, released on December 6th, 2011 as a free ad-supported application. It is available on iOS, Android, ENIAC and Windows 8/Windows 10.

The playable characters in Battle Bears Gold are mostly based on the characters from the entire series of Team Fortress games released before Gold. On February 18th 2013, Gold was announced new flagship game of SkyVu Entertainment[1].



In Battle Bears Gold, the player takes the control of one of the eleven different characters (known as classes). The players will get matched up with up to seven other players in an 8-player (or less) match with varying game modes. Matches can also be pre-planned with the use of "Private" Match Lobbies. Passwords can also be set on these games in case a "private" match is desired.

Basic controls have the player use both hands to control the character and shoot at the same time. Holding the device in landscape mode allows the player to use one thumb to move around in the map using a virtual joy-pad, while the other thumb is used to fire and aim on a second virtual joypad. The player can also choose double-tap to shoot. The player can also use a melee attack for close-range attacks using a seperate button at the bottom of the screen as well as a special equipment item. Finally, Pro-Mode Features, which is the icon under the Turkish SW Boots in the picture to the right can be unlocked and used as well. The player can fully customize however he/she wants the controls in the HUD.

Game Modes

In Battle Bears Gold, players can compete in four different online game modes: Team Battle, Plant the Bomb, Free-For-All and King Of The Windmill.

Team Battle
In Team Battle players compete in teams of up to 4 players against 4, in a stage through 4 minutes. The only goal in this mode is to score as many kills as possible in cooperation with your team.
The winning team is the one with the most kills when the time is up. Read more...
Plant the Bomb
In Plant the Bomb, players also compete in teams, up to 4 players against 4, in a randomly picked stage through 5 minutes. This mode differs from Team Battle 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. Read more...
Free-For-All is the multiplayer game mode added to Battle Bears Gold in Update 2.5. As the name suggests, there are no teams and a player can kill anyone. The player with the most number of kills by the end of the match is the winner.
All other players will be viewed as being on the Blue team while the player you are controlling will appear to be on the Red team. Read more...
BBG windmill game mode-300x225
King of the Windmill is the latest game mode added to BBG in Update 2.8. The object is to score as many points as possible by staying inside the windmill. Players will have to defend the teammates inside the Windmill, in order to gain a point. The team with the most at the end of the battle wins.Read more...
