IGN writes: "Developer Play Brains describes Babo: Invasion as "casually hardcore," at the same time admitting this term sounds like empty marketing jargon. What it means is the game is easy to pick up and play but has plenty of depth to be found for players that want to invest the time. From what we've seen and played of the game so far, this is one to watch for. The Madballs tie-in may be a little misleading, but the game seems to be a lot of fun and that's all that really matters. Look for it this summer".
