Gameplay

Tutorial-button-mode

In Battle Bears Gold, the player takes the control of one of the eleven different characters (known as classes) with a large variety of weapons of choice. 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 Game Lobbies. The lobbies can be made private by requiring a password to join.

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. Each character also has access to a melee attack for close-range combat using a separate buttonas well as a special equipment item. Finally, purchaseable Pro-Mode Features can be unlocked and used as well for an extra advantage. The player can fully customize the position of each control on the HUD.

Classes and Characters

Battle Bears Gold includes 11 different characters from the game series. Initally the player has access to 4 default classes, with the 7 remaining classes being unlockable through the 2 ingame currency types:

  • Joules - which is acquireable by playing, and
  • Gas which requires actual purchase.

Each character is assigned its own class, with each class having its own unique weaponry, statistics and playstyle.

Game Modes

In Battle Bears Gold, players can compete in four different online game modes:

Each game mode has different objectives for the player. While Team Battle and Free-For-All rely mostly on the individual players skill level, Plant the Bomb and King of the Windmill takes a more strategic and team-oriented approach.

Finally, the game also features a beginner-friendly Tutorial game mode where the player is introduced to the core functions of the game.

Certain stages also includes Jump Pads that will send the player flying in a certain direction to another place on the map.

Ranking and Reputation

Each player has a Skill Rating determining the players skill level. This is increased by winning games and descreased by losing games - the change in skill rating depends on a variety of factors from the game played. The skill Rating also determines the players rank, which can range from Green to Diamond. The base rating for a new player is 500.

It was first introduced in version 2.4 primarily in an effort to effectively deal with an increasing number of hackers in the game. Only players logged in with a SkyVu Network account is able to rate others.
