Although Apple isn’t fond of apps with sexualized content, developers haven’t got discouraged from making them. App developer Doublesix has launched the Babeorella iPhone game, inspired by Jane Fonda’s Barbarella character, that takes the heroine to a whole ‘nother level of buxomness.
Doublesix calls Babeorella a “titular hero,” and one of the reviews on iTunes says that it is “so good its [sic] making me moist!” so you know it’s going to be good. It’s got robots, it’s got space ships, it’s got an arsenal of weaponry (including a ray gun!) and it’s only $2.99.
Babeorella wields a number of pixelated items of various size against a host of household appliances. There are two tiers of attacks grouped according to range, so attacking the roomba nipping at your heels will employ a surprisingly destructive whip, while the angular, floating dustbins may be dispatched with her hair dryer sidearm. For the heavy attacks, Babeorella employs a novelty-sized accordion/hammer, and a strange device that can only be described as a Shop-Vac of lethal invention. To assist, there are handy health, experience, and damage power-ups, as well as an intuitive experience-based upgrade system, which presents a promising, if unnecessary layer of complexity to the questionable character of this “interactive experience.”
Brawlers of this ilk usually go light on the finer elements of character and plot, and Babeorella is no exception. Yet on its own, the gameplay is already limited and monotonous; the halfhearted (yet occasionally witty) stabs at irony do little to alleviate this. While the tongue-in-cheek writing and comic-book design might suggest this is all not meant to be taken seriously, there is really no excuse for such boring and mediocre “entertainment.”
