Batter Up! Bench Clearing Reinvents Baseball As A Battle Royal [Video]

Think sport should be less about good sportsmanship and complex rules, and more about violence?

Clearly developer HooAh agrees on some level, because its upcoming iOS game Bench Clearing re-imagines baseball (a.k.a. “America’s favorite pastime”) as a massive free-for-all battle.

It’s a neat idea, which immediately makes an otherwise interpenetrate sport (for me, a non-sport loving Brit) look like something I’d quite happily play.

Of course, there’s no knowing how well Bench Clearing¬†works until it lands in the App Store “soon,” but Hooah does have previous experience making fun brawling games like Gangsta’s Paradise.

Cult of Mac will be back with a full review as soon as possible.
