It's a game about fun and customisation. You create your brawler's appearance and can change their head, torso, legs, and weapons before the fight. There are multiple game modes to pick from, including the 4-versus-4 score rush team battles and all-against-all fights where the aim is to be the last person standing.
As you win more fights, you work your way up global leaderboards, unlock new maps to play on and extra customisation parts to make your brawler unique. Mini-figures you unlock are categorised by the theme they originate from, and include characters from Ninjago, Jurassic Park, Alien Conquest and Pirates. As you customise your characters' weapons and abilities, their moves and attacks in battle also change.
The result is a brawling game ideal for younger players with a lower ability threshold. New and unique game modes like team matches add an extra layer of complexity that makes communication as vital as practice, skill, and ingenuity.
Cross-Play: Play between all different platforms.
You can play this game in the following styles:
In the US, ESRB state: Players' characters brawl and battle in themed platform levels, using swords, bats, hammers, and power-ups (e.g., crossbows, robot suits, rocket fists) to drain opponents' life meters. Battles are frenetic, highlighted by impact sounds, large explosions, and screen-shaking effects.
8+ year-olds usually have the required skill to enjoy this game. It's designed to be less challenging to learn than a game like Super Smash Bros, but it still has reasonable complexity in its controls. Players should also be able to cope with losing to other players.
