Do you like a good brawl? A fight? A brouhaha? But don’t like actually being hit… or arrested… or sued. If so, then you’re in luck! With Brawl Stars you can enjoy all the digital exhilaration of a good old time brawl without actually getting your hands dirty, scraped or bruised.
Brawl Stars is another addition to the Supercell’s burgeoning arsenal of great mobile app games. It’s easy to pick up, advertisement free, fast-paced and best of all, free to play! You can spend money in it if you want to fast track your progress but you can still be beaten by someone with the entry level brawler if they are more skilled than you.
The game is a 3v3 death match where you direct your brawler to shoot, punch or explode the other brawlers. Some stages have additional goals such as Smash and Grab where you try to collect gem stones that are generated in the stage and steal the other team’s gems by killing them. It’s definitely not a pacifists game but with the cartoon graphics it shouldn’t be too rage-inducing either. Unless of course you hate cartoon graphics.
Each brawler has a unique look and style of play. Some like to get in your face and smack you around while others run away and shoot you in the back like the coward Robert Ford. Speaking of cowardly, you can even hide in the long grass to try and get the jump on unsuspecting opponents! As you play you earn coins which you can use to unlock more brawlers which you can level up by destroying your foes and winning the match.
If you have friends you can even play co-op mode with them. When I get some friends I’ll let you know how that goes! All in all this is a game that delivers a winning combo with a knockout punch!
Overall Score: 5/5
