RIP Ralph Baer (1922-2014) I really, really hate writing obits. I really do. But I take it as a personal honor to be able to say good things about the men and women I respect, whether in this industry or just in my life, and Ralph Baer is the reason all of this exists in the first...

Backyard Battles Screenshots



It’s everyone’s childhood dream come true as neighborhood kids arm themselves with broom handle swords, PVC pipe cannons and tennis racket magic wands to attack and defend their cardboard box forts. Playing either single- or multi-player matches, users take turns placing their heroes on a three-lane backyard board and compete for victory.

Key Features
- Bring Out Your Inner Child – Backyard Battles brings childhood memories to the digital age on mobile devices and browsers. Each player has to defend a cardboard box fort behind their team of heroes, using creative weapons crafted from everyday items found in their parents’ attics, closets and garage.
- Easy to Learn, but Difficult to Master – Though deep with collectible card game (CCG) strategy game mechanics, Backyard Battles leaves plenty of room for room for players to be creative. Each player defends their team’s cardboard box fort and takes turn placing their heroes and items in a three-lane battlefield in one-on-one matches. On each turn, they can choose from an assortment of heroes and weapons that are included in the selected squad.
- Balance is Key. No one squad is tougher than another as balance is a key factor in Backyard Battles. Players can customize heroes and items to be included in different squads. They might choose to go with all power while another can focus on defensive heroes and items, all while carefully anticipating their opponent’s next move.
- Asynchronous Multiplayer and More – What is a strategy game without multi-player action? Backyard Battles features asynchronous multi-player over Wi-Fi and LTE, as well as play-and-pass style multi-player mode for some in-your-face gaming. The game also includes single-player challenges
