Bears are the enemy of art in Halfbrick's new game, Bears vs. Art

The latest game from Halfbrick, the Australian studio behind Jetpack Joyride and Fruit Ninja, is a puzzle title called Bears vs. Art, the company announced today.

As you can see in the debut trailer above, Bears vs. Art concerns a mild-mannered bear who lives in a forest and becomes irate when humans bulldoze his habitat to build, of all things, a museum for modern art. The bear takes it as his task to destroy the artwork housed in the museum, so he must solve puzzles to get past security measures such as lasers, spikes and portals, as well as human obstacles like museum visitors, security guards and thieves.

More than 125 different pieces of art, and the puzzles blocking the way to them, are available at launch in Bears vs. Art. The game is free-to-play with in-app purchases, and is currently available on iOS in Australia and Canada, with a worldwide release date to be announced soon.
