VERDICT

Babeorella is another 'bubblegum' endless action title that's certainly juicy to enjoy at first, but doesn't lend itself to repeat playthroughs.

Babeorella by doublesix knows its audience and much like Daisy Mae of the Alien Buffet, she's a spicy heroine that's not afraid to put her body on the line. Jane Fonda references aside, Babeorella is an endless action brawler that tries hard to keep your attention in almost any way possible.

Movement is controlled by an analogue stick while attacks are grouped in to three buttons for variety. Two buttons are used for light and heavy attacks, with three variations available to each depending on your distance to the enemy. While a single large button can be held to release her ultimate ability, the Bimbo Bomb.

There's only one arena to fight in, but clever positioning of powerups and pathways keep the small variety of enemies on the move. Upgrades for different skills are available, but they can be avoided you're after the 'hardcore' achievements. The game's bright designs have a great retro feel and thankfully aren't as sedate as the palette used from the game's movie inspiration. The music is catchy, but on longer sessions you'll wish iTunes was supported.

Despite its risque content, Babeorella keeps things relatively toned down. The 'smart weapons' are a great feature and make the game far more dynamic to watch and enjoyable to play. Unlockable content should motivate gamers to keep returning to the game, but after a few rounds it's evident there's not a lot to keep you coming back. A fun casual title for those after a snack-sized game.
