Brawlhalla is a free to play fighting developed and published by Blue Mammoth Games. It is available for Windows, MacOS and PS 4. It is one of those types of game where you forget to keep the track of your time and you plunge into an endless source of entertainment. People might hate it because it is similar to Smash Bros but it is free and amusing to keep your mind getting filled with joy and happiness.
You can play Brawlhalla for 0 $ on steam or PS 4 but if you buy the legends back you can get all current and future legends unlocked. Otherwise if you are a F2P then you get rotating roster of 6 legends. Legends are the cartoonish styled characters that you play as in Brawlhalla. They can be bought using gold that you earn after each match played. The advantageous part is, any pc even potato pc can run this game well as this game does not require you to have pc with good specs.
Brawlhalla matchmade online games can hold 4 people. You can play online or locally with others player as a group of 4 or play with your friends vs other players. You can queue up for 1 v 1, 2 v 2 or fight everyone else except you and even experimental queue. If you are experienced than there’s a ranked queue for you to play with other experienced players. Matchmaking is swift and, if an opponent leaves, a well-trained AI quickly replaces them. There is even an offline queue for you to practice, train and play with AI.
In game, you have a health bar but the more damage you take, the more your health bar rises and the more your health bar rise the more chance you have to get knocked out of the platform. In game, you get weapons by picking up the sword-like thingy (you can see it in the screenshot, in this case it is those orange swords) and it gives you specific weapons for your Legend. You can get axes, swords, spears, guns, bows depending on your Legends.
Gameplay can be very fun and simple but it needs strategies to win a match. There are many strategies you can use and make good plays using moves especially wall climbing moves and dashes. After you finish a match, you get gold but it takes a little bit of time to save up enough gold to buy a Legends. So in that case if you cannot wait to save up enough gold, you can always buy the Legends or buy the All Legends pack to support the developers. You can always make new friends by playing online games and you can even join clans to play together with them.
