Play OverviewPlay Overview

Brawlout (2017) is a fighting game with 4-player battles in levels with lots of platforms. You try to knock the other players off and win the round. As you inflict damage you can hit them further. Like, Super Smash Bros you also have dash, melee and ranged attacks, but here with original characters and maps.

There are 25 playable characters (including cameos from Hyper Light Drifter, Guacamelee!, Yooka-Laylee, and Dead Cells) each with unique attacks that are unlocked as you play, along with new arenas. The majority of characters can't block or grab which gives emphasis to large combo attacks, and building up your Rage Meter, which once full allows you to deal a high amount of damage.

You have the option to play against the computer or against online players, in normal, hard or arcade mode matches. There are some single player and online tournaments too. Winning battles in any more earns you currency to unlock outfits, characters and maps.

While there are a lot of brawling games to choose from, Brawlout stands out for its play for four people on the couch. It avoids the commercial feel of bigger franchises like Super Smash Bros, but still offers a polished experience that requires skill and learning of a large variety of movement mechanics.

Content Rating

Rated PEGI 7 for Violence. Violence consists of kicks, punches and the use of some weapons. There is no blood or visible injury. The character’s reactions to the violence are over exaggerated with bright flashes and smoke effects on impact. A character can appear worn down when it’s health bar is low but the violence is never up close or severe.
Users Interact: The game enables players to interact and communicate with each other, so may expose players to language usually associated with older rated games.
