Game: Badland Brawl

Genre: PvP Action Fighting Game

Platforms: Android and iOS

We have all played Angry Birds and most of us have played, or at least heard of, Clash Royale. Badland Brawl is a fun new experiment that is a combination of the two.

The main mechanic in the game is an Angry Birds type physics-based slingshot that you use to throw various types of characters and weapons at the opponent. It is a real time PvP game where you fight against real players. Just like in Clash Royale, the main objective is to destroy the opponent’s tower. Each player carries a set of eight cards or weapons that are randomly given out during the game. Each card needs energy to use and it then regenerates over time. Different cards require different amounts of energy and this difference keeps the game interesting. Do you use the powerful card that requires more energy or the weaker one that requires less energy? Physics plays an important part in the game. Cards that bounce a lot can be fast but can also easily be bounced back by the right opponent card.

The cards and their powers is what makes the game fun. The main weapon is a bomb that you throw at the opponents. You can also throw arrows and fireballs. There are warriors that walk towards the opponent and push any bombs that might be in the way. One can also use kamikaze birds that explode on contact. Each card has a particular strength but is also weak against some other card.

At the end of every game, you get eggs that give you cards, which you can use to upgrade existing characters. You can also buy cards and eggs from the store. Winning fights gives you coins that are needed to upgrade as well.

A timed, league-based tournament is the main mode in the game. As you defeat different opponents, you climb the leagues and uncover different locations that are wonderfully animated. That give players different cards to fight with. There are also limited-time events where you can get special rewards.

You can also be a part of the clan and help the members. You can give them cards or ask for cards that you need. Every fight adds to the points of the clan, which unlocks gifts for all the members. You can also have practice matches between clan members. The community channel built within the game gives you the ability to watch fights between the top players of the game.

VERDICT: Badland Brawl is a beautiful game that combines two very fun mechanics. However, what is lacking is variation in the different characters that is needed to keep the game interesting for a long time. That said, the game is a lot of fun and highly recommended for anyone who enjoys a multiplayer experience. I would rate it eight out of 10.
