BABY: The Bollywood Movie Game for Android is a first person shooter based on a popular Indian action movie. It’s stationary target practice, with waves of terrorists running into the scene, ducking behind objects, and shooting at you. The terrorists seem like a motely crew. Some wear vests and tight black jeans; others are in mafia style full suits and sunglasses; still yet others are suicide bombers in Islamic dress, who keep running straight towards you unless you shoot them.
The hero is a slightly overweight Indian cop with a moustache. You’re part of a secret anti-terrorist unit called BABY, protecting India against all sorts of sketchy characters. There are four locations, which are all highly detailed, with plenty of convenient hiding places for the bad guys to duck behind. There are also sometimes random explosives scattered about, which you can tactically shoot to blow up the bad guys. You’ve got to watch your ammo in this game though, cos once it’s gone it’s gone, and you’re going to have to buy an infinte ammo powerup with game coins to keep going. Sometimes there are also civilians running away, who you have to avoid shooting.
BABY makes up for the fixed-position gameplay by looking good and having decent control over aim - with head shots, arm shots etc. all possible. But the limited ammo thing is kinda annoying.
