What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“This game features a unique mix of various playing mechanics and we want to hear the community's feedback about it all. Also in order to develop the game further, we would like to involve the community to the process. There are plenty of possibilities to develop new kind of weapons, shields and enemy species. By bringing this kind of new content to the game, we can create more campaign levels and maybe totally new game modes as well.

The game has been developed using techniques that support multiplayer gaming. To be able to actually implement the online (and why not shared screen) gameplay, we will need the customer support and feedback.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“We expect the game to be in Early Access at least for a year.”

How is the full version planned to differ from the Early Access version?

“The full version could contain more weapons, levels and other content, like new enemy species with special abilities. Also online multiplayer death match game mode with public score board has been planned. We could consider building shared screen multiplayer modes as well.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“Currently the game features single player campaign for ten stages and three difficulty levels. Multiplayer is not included at the moment.”

Will the game be priced differently during and after Early Access?

“Price will not change when we leave early access.”

How are you planning on involving the Community in your development process?

“We are planning to use the community to get feedback and new ideas for developing the game further. We think that involving the community is very crucial for Early Access development.”

About This Game

Being a pirate doesn’t depend on the species. The battle for the dominance of the Caribbean is ruthless. Take a part in the epic struggle between moles, monkeys and other BATTLE SPECIES!

Battle Species is a fast-paced game where animal characters are fighting against each other in a pirate theme. Playful game mechanics, destroyable terrain and clear graphics make the gaming experience interesting. Your job is to control a mole on a catapult and try to eliminate a bunch of pirate monkeys that have conquered your castles. Monkeys will use their cannons to make it as hard as possible for you as a player. Luckily you will constantly receive some help from above, in form of air drops containing special ammunition to be thrown at the monkeys. Air drops can also carry medikits and special kind of shields to protect you.

The single player campaign includes ten different levels which can be played on three difficulty levels. Each level features a randomly generated terrain, which will be different every time you play. Levels do not have any time limits for completing them, but destructing terrain and slowly rising tide make the job harder as time passes.

Default keyboard controls


Arrows left / right: drive the catapult backwards and forwards
Arrow up: the catapult jumps
Arrow down + arrow left / right: see the ammo trajectory and adjust the catapult shooting force
Enter: use the current special item you have collected
Space: release the catapult arm == shoot!

We also have preliminary gamepad support configured in. Feel free to experiment on that if you will (we have tested briefly with old Logitech pad).

We know that the launcher provided input configuration is totally crappy, and we are sorry about that! The plan is to build proper configurability to the in-game options menu soon.
