Dominate the heavenly platforms in this free fighting game

Brawlhalla is a free-to-play action mobile video game wherein you have to be quick on your feet. Developed by Blue Mammoth Games and Ubisoft, this colorful platformer features combat reminiscent of Nintendo’s Super Smash Bros series. You fight against other characters on a small floating map until either one player is left standing or the timer stops. Eliminating someone awards you one point while dying deducts one, so be careful not to fall off.

Is Brawlhalla a good game?

The goal is simple: eliminate everyone else and rack up points. To send your enemies flying, keep damaging them until their health bars at the top-right corner turn red. The controls feature the movement pad on the left and action buttons on the right. You can easily distinguish the Quick Attack, Heavy Attack, Dodge/Dash, Jump, Throw Item, and Emotes buttons. Their settings allow repositioning them on the screen and adjusting their scale and transparency

This game has online and local co-op match modes, supporting up to 8 players. There’s also Ranked and Battle Pass modes. For casual matches, you have the chaotic Free-for-All; Strikeout 1v1, wherein you pick 3 characters and play 1 stock each; Friendly 2v2, wherein you can play solo or with a friend; and Experimental 1v1, which lets you try out test features. There are also some party modes available, like Brawlball and Capture the Flag. 

The playable characters here are called Legends and there are currently 50 available—some of which are crossover characters. All of them can use 2 weapons, pick up throwable items like bombs and mines, and fight unarmed. Every week, there’s a selection of 8 free characters called the Legend Rotation—but you can unlock the rest by either earning gold or buying the All Legends Pack, which unlock them and all future characters except crossover ones forever.

Become a Legend

Overall, Brawlhalla is a great choice for a multiplayer platformer game. It’s available on PC, mobile, and gaming consoles, allowing for full cross-play across all platforms so you can play whenever and wherever. Plus, you can create custom rooms for online and local play. Much of its issues lie in the online servers and the lag on touch controls when up against those on keyboards and controllers. However, it’s still a great game to try out.
