2D Platform Fighting Game
Brought to you by Ubisoft, Brawlhalla is a fun and addictive 2D platform fighting game with millions of fans worldwide. Although originally released for PC, the game is now available on mobile for Android & iOS platforms.
If you played the PC version that launched in 2017, chances are that you might be looking for something fresh. Fortunately, you can get that in the mobile release and still maintain a familiar feel by installing the new Brawlhalla on Mac or Windows using an emulator. The process is quite simple, and you can find out more about it by checking out the instructions shared in this post.
Whether you choose to play Brawlhalla on PC or not, the developers made sure it has excellent support for smartphones, keyboards, and even controllers.
When it comes to the gameplay, players fight each other solo or as part of a team. The brawls take place in dangerous, whimsical arenas consisting of floating patches of land and platforms. As a result, your goal is to knock your opponents off the edge. And, each time you send them plummeting into the abyss below, you score one victory.
As you fight opponents, their health gauge gradually transitions in color from white to yellow and eventually becomes red. The darker the color, the further they will fly when you land a successful hit, making them easier to knock off the edge.
So, what do you need to do to win? Out of three rounds, you get crowned winner of the match by dealing your adversaries at least two knockouts or falls. On the other hand, you will incur a loss after falling off the ledge by yourself.
Multiple Game Modes to Choose From
Another fantastic feature that Brawlhalla has to offer is multiple modes of play. For starters, anyone new to the game should start playing offline because there are plenty of options for practice-based gameplay.
Once you feel more confident to take on real players, you can take part in ranked matches. They entail real-time fights against players from all over the world. You can try dominating in ‘brawl of the week’ as well.
With online brawls, players start from the Tin tier and can climb up the ranks to Platinum. Additionally, ranked fights match you with opponents who are on a similar skill level.
You can try your hand at battle pass tournaments too for a chance to win skins, color schemes, and more. There are general, daily, & weekly missions in this mode where you can earn gems.
Finally, the custom game room offers a chance for players to invite up to eight friends. You can set up a huge variety of bespoke matches in this mode. For instance, you could choose to engage in a capture the flag brawl, shoot hoops in Bombsketball, best your adversaries in sudden death, or dish out lethal throws in Dodgebomb, to name just a few game modes.
Lots of Characters to Collect
Ubisoft adds new characters continuously, currently boasting over 50 unique Brawlhalla warriors from which to choose. You get free eight legends that keep changing every week, and you can unlock more with gold earned from winning matches in the online modes.
Fighters have varying levels of four stats, namely strength, dexterity, speed, and defense. They can also use two types of weapons in battle. For example, if you like the ranged style of striking your enemies from a distance, you can go for legends who use the blasters or bow & arrow. Alternatively, fans of melee combat are in for a treat. They can get their hands on fighters that use a spear, hammer, axe, sword, rocket lance, or pair of boxing gloves.
All fighters in the game can attack from the ground or air using a series of quick and heavy combos. Besides these basic attacks, every legend has three signature moves that are unique to them, depending on the type of weapon used.
Tips & Tricks for Playing Brawlhalla on PC
• Hone Your Skills First
Trying to fight on a platform without falling to your doom can be quite tricky, and that is pretty much what Brawlhalla is all about. There is a learning curve before you master the gameplay mechanics. As such, it is prudent to spend some time in the offline section that offers a variety of practice options. Here, you will find the tutorials that teach you about the game. There is also a training mode that lets you study moves against a passive opponent. Alternatively, take on AI legends in the tournament mode to find out how well you would perform against opponents that fight back. Lastly, you can play the couch party matches with friends.
Ultimately, the offline game modes prepare you for the tougher ranked matches against real players.
• Use Items in the Arena
When you start the game, you will have no weapon. However, you can still pick up items on the arena and use them against your opponents. For instance, sometimes magical swords fall from the skies and stake themselves into the ground. Pick one up, and it turns into a scythe that you can use to dispatch your adversaries.
Sometimes you may also come across the Valkyrie horn. Get to it and blow to summon sidekicks who not only bring you a fresh weapon but also barrel through enemies on the way
You can also use or throw gadgets like spike balls, bombs, and mines that appear randomly.
• Recover From Falls
When playing Brawlhalla, falling off the edges will happen a lot. Despite this, the game offers controls that can help you recover. For example, you can perform two air jumps or use your aeriel heavy attack move when you are mid-air to get back on the platform. For this to work, though, you have to use the dodge or navigation buttons that will direct your fighter where to land.
• Maximize Your Coin Collection
Coins are invaluable resources in this game. You can use them to acquire more legends, so it is essential to gather as much as possible. The easiest method to earn coins is by logging in every day to claim them for free. Also, make sure to complete your online missions, free for all (FFA) brawls, and custom single-player matches to win even more gold.
