Get Ready to Rumble – Hands-On with Brawlout at PAX South

Are you a big fan of Super Smash Bros? How about other party fighters like TMNT: Smash-Up or PlayStation All-Stars? Well, you are in luck! A new game is coming out soon featuring the same party/fighter gameplay. I was able to interview the CEO of Angry Mob Games, Bogdan Iliesiu, to talk a bit more about the game, Brawlout. Check it out in the video below.

A Knock-Down, Brawlout Fight

So, as you can tell, the game features the same damage percentage as Super Smash Bros. As you take more damage, you will be sent flying off of the stage. This “King of the Hill” style gameplay is fast-paced and takes a lot of skill to master. Thaddeus and I decided to play a few matches before the interview to see how it felt. A few others jumped in with us, and the shenanigans began! It was funny, intense, and satisfying all at the same time. Definitely an experience that gamers want.

The Best Defense? A Good Offense

You may be thinking, “Cool, Hound. But, what makes this game different?” Well, the big difference in this game is that you are unable to block… Like, at all. There is no dodge-rolling around the arena. You can’t block an attack and make a quick counter attack. No, this game is all about being offensive and landing your hits when the opportunity is open. Also, this allows for many more combos than other games. Juggling opponents to build damage and then finishing them off will turn an “easy to pick-up” game into one that is “difficult to master.” Once you become a master, though, it’ll be even more fun!
