Oh my goodness what kind of a weird game is this? It’s called Raving Babies, a game out exclusively on Sony Ericsson Xperia PLAY being released on Verizon Wireless. The gameplay is simple enough – walk sideways and shoot your gun, defeating the enemies. Just like Ninja Turtles, Simpsons, NARC, and every other game from the 1990s. The difference here is that you’ve got it on your little screen and you’re playing it with an Xperia PlayStation controller. Also the objective is to placate a bunch of hostile babies with your pacifier gun so that you can scoop them up and let them know how bad they’ve been with a time out!
This is definitely a game for people with newborns, as any other time in my life, the idea of playing this game would have seemed just silly to yours truly, but now it’s a hoot. My wife recently gave birth to our first child, and using a pacifier gun to launch babies into a state of insta-sleep is more than appreciated by mine eyes. That said, the game is pretty darn basic once you’ve gotten past the simple charm.
On the other hand, if you are looking for some nostalgia and would like to play a NEW game with babies in it instead of the Foot Clan, you’ll be in for a treat. I must also mention that I don’t believe that the developers of this game optimized the still-sitting graphics well enough because I can definitely pick out some big pixels sitting around the title screen and pause screens.
Kind of yuck.
The ideal price for this game would be $1.99, but it costs a bit more than that in the V Cast store. Buy it anyway, have a laugh or two.
