Your task is to build up damage on enemies to make them vulnerable, then knock them out of the arena with a mighty blow. It's a classic formula that works here because of its well-balanced yet varied characters.
Each arena features a new mechanic that players must master to win. Some crumble over time, while others feature deadly traps.
As you progress, you hone your use of the attacks and abilities of each character. Hurl boulders as Hercules, swing Excalibur as King Arthur, or wield Mjolnir as Thor. Some players focus on perfecting the use of one character while others enjoy switching between characters depending on who they are fighting.
The result is a fighting game that retains the direct and high-impact pleasure of brawling classics like Smash Brothers but expands this in new directions with the 3D arenas and god-based characters.
