Babo Violent 2 is a top-down shooter multiplayer game in which players control a sphere called a Babo. The Babo is colored red or blue and is armed with one of six weapons. As a multiplayer game, it is played over a LAN or over the Internet. Players can choose from one of hundreds of maps available, and they can easily find games with a provided server list. A game may involve up to 32 players. There are different game modes such as the Deathmatch, Capture the Flag, and Team Deathmatch.
The basic objective is to kill enemy players using the weapons attached to the Babo. Players are given a large arsenal of weapons for their Babo, and more can be picked up as the orb rolls along the ground. Players can attack using knives and protect their spheres with shields. When a player dies, his or her Babo leaves behind a health pack, the weapon used, and grenades that can be picked up by other players. The health pack may be used to heal injuries sustained by the Babo.
Babo Violent 2 lets players “respawn” their Babos after certain amount of time specified by the server, so that they may continue playing. They can choose another weapon to use for the duration of the map. After a time, the map will change and the scores of the players will reset for another round.
