Battle Bay is a pleasant surprise, and is arguably one of the smoothest multiplayer online battle arena (MOBA) games present on Android and iOS. It’s a top-quality game, and that doesn’t come as a surprise, since it was made by the same developers the acclaimed Angry Birds series. Basically, Battle Bay is a game wherein you participate in fierce, action-packed 5v5 battles against players from across the globe. Currently, it is only available in selected regions, and more people will get access to it in the future.

Battle Bay is an easy to learn game, with only a mild learning curve to face. You will be treated to a tutorial against AI opponents as soon as you launch the game. Here, the basics, including movement, shooting, weapons management, and aiming are taught. After the battle, you will then proceed to learning how to upgrade your ship and train your crew. There are three currencies in the game: gold, which is used to buy items and ships, sugar, to upgrade members and level up items. The last currency are pearls, which is the premium one in this game. After the first upgrade, you will then be brought to your first ever real battle.

Matchmaking is relatively well-done: as soon as you log in to the game, you will be in the queue, along with hundreds of other players. When you press the “Battle” button on the lobby, you will be brought straight into a match with nine other players. However, skill-based matchmaking can be a little inconsistent. You could end up going up against players with stronger ships while you’re just equipped with a cannon that is as strong as a peashooter. Nevertheless, it only takes seconds for you to find a match, and connectivity is never a problem.

The controls are relatively simple and easy to learn. On the bottom left corner, there is a joystick used to move and turn your ship around. One the bottom right, you will have a joystick to aim your turret and shoot well-placed cannon and mortar fire. On the right side, you will have access to your weapons tab. Here, you can switch between weapons, from sniper cannons to mortars.

Though the maps aren’t exactly varied, they’re enough to give you a fresh look of the game. Moreover, the waters aren’t exactly calm: the waves are extremely large, and although there’s no risk of sinking, you need to navigate and shoot carefully. Your cannons may get swallowed by the waves, giving you opponents a chance to fire back. It would be best to use the environment to your advantage: hide behind obstacles if you’re being shot at, use the waves to make your enemies miss. If your ship is still pretty weak, hide behind cover, let your bloodthirsty teammates charge and just snipe from behind.

Did we mention you can join battles in an unlimited number of times because Battle Bay doesn’t have an energy system unlike other freemium games? You won’t have to wait for hours to play again, and the developers definitely did a fantastic job excluding it from the game. However, this comes at a price: people who are willing to pay for items have an advantage against players who purely want it for free.

Overall, Battle Bay should be considered as one of the best mobile games of the year. Fast-paced and action-packed gameplay paired with smooth and quick matchmaking, easy-to-learn mechanics, and stable connectivity make it an outstanding game. We highly recommend it, and you will definitely spend countless hours shooting cannons and traversing through the waves. Ahoy, and set sail!
