Madballs in Babo: Invasion
Madballs Are Attacking the Xbox Live Arcade
Written By
Although some of the younger gamers here may not remember the beauty that was Madballs, I'm sure a lot of you remember having a couple growing up.  One of the fads of the 80's and early 90's, these angry little balls are looking to make a return in the new millenium.  Not only in toy form, however.  That's right, Madballs are making their way to the Xbox Live Arcade!
 
Titled Madballs in Babo: Invasion, players will take control of memorable Madballs such as Major Stone and Oculus Orbus.  The game will feature a fast-paced shooting aspect, and seems like it will have some multiplayer components as well.  More information will be brought to you when we get it, but for now enjoy the debut trailer!

I had all these when I was a kid. Only 2 of them (Oculus Orbus and Horn Head) are original Madballs. The rest are new for this game.

the later figures did but the madballs were originally baseball sized freaky things u could throw around, they changed the look once they started getting banned from schools and stuff, strangely the figures proved more popular and even had a cartoon show.

looks fun but im not gonna pay more than around 800 points for it as i dont think any arcade game is worth more atm.

I remember having quite a few of these.

@45 I even have 2 boglins still in very good condition.

There sure were a lot of scary looking toys when we were kids. Maybe we'll get a My Pet Monster game soon. While on the subject anyone remember Rock Lords? They were basically transformers that looked like rocks.
