Developer HooAh is taking the concept of bench-clearing brawls and turning it into an action-strategy game, and if I gave out awards for "Awesome Things to Make a Video Game Out Of" this would win first prize. I'm not even sure if there's any actual baseball mechanics in the appropriately named Bench Clearing, but what I do know is that once a scuffle breaks out, you can choose an assortment of different units and weapons to trod out on the field and help put a healthy beatdown on your opponent's team. Check out the trailer.
The problem with cool game concepts is that they aren't worth a whole lot if they don't result in a well-executed game, and for that piece of the puzzle we'll just have to wait and see how Bench Clearing eventually turns out. But, I love the concept, and HooAh does have experience in making brawlers with their popular Gangsta's Paradise [$1.99 / Free] games. I'll be hoping for the best when Bench Clearing launches "soon" on the App Store.
