Miniaturized Shooter Batla Now On Steam

You can sum up giem.pro's Batla in just a few words: "Tiny, violent alien robots in search of sugar."

The Kiev-based developer released the F2P shooter on Steam in May, after three years of release in Eastern Europe where the company claims to have 10 million registered and 150,000 daily active players. Batla offers three classes -- soldier, scout, and tank -- with 10 different skills apiece and 15 maps across four game modes, with a PvE mode planned for addition in September.

As for the name? According to Google Translate, "batla" is the English equivalent of "батла," which means "battles." All right, so geim.pro doesn't score bonus points for originality in naming, but the gameplay speaks for itself.

I played it yesterday for 5 minutes. The Only good thing about the game is that I can run it maxed out with 200 FPS.

Looks like Time Splitters just with much much less characters.

Just like Quake Live, if Quake was a Korean MMOFPS with an art style that caters to preschoolers. Actually, that sounds a lot like Call of Duty...

Cant believe steam put up this p2w crap up, when good quake engine based games like warsow have not yet been added to steam F2P list even tho its already been through green light a long time ago.

Bloody ridiculas.

The speed on this plus the gameplay they for some reason selected makes this look like an MLG tryhard trickshot game full of people that dedicate their life into bouncing everywhere while spraying their guns until they get a kill. No thanks.

More like BADla... amiright guys? .... guys? Anyone?

Seriously though, it looks like Quake, except all of the mods are made out of kiddy toys. The maps feel so out of place and stupid.
