Bear Bovver is a 2D action title involving an innocent little bear that must get rid of his enemies. Levels are made up of various ladders and hazards. While the bear can access and use these ladders to climb to higher portions of the level, the enemies can use them as well. In order to succeed, you'll have to demolish all the enemies on the screen without losing all of your given lives.
Rival bears and lizard men can be killed using different methods, including bombs and massive logs. The innocent bear has a limited number of bombs that can be detonated, but he can try to collect more if his supply runs low. Once a bomb has been lit, the bear has just a few seconds to move out of the blast radius. Anything in the blast radius will be burnt to a crisp!
If the bear runs out of bombs, however, the logs must be used to get rid of enemies. These are dropped on the enemies' heads from above. The bear must climb a ladder, wait for one of the enemies to wander under the log, and then walk across. Once the bear has walked all the way across the log, it will drop. When an enemy is killed, points are awarded.
The action continues until all the enemies have been eradicated or the bear has lost all of his lives. The bear will die when he comes in contact with the bomb's blast radius or one of the enemies. Bear Bovver offers various options, including the "Baby Bear" and "Big Bear" difficulty settings and three sound volume levels. Get in there and help the innocent bear fend off his rivals! ~ Matthew House, All Game Guide
