About This Game

Brawlhalla: An eternal battle arena where the greatest warriors in history brawl to prove who's the best that ever was, is, or will be. Competitors from all eras slug it out in devious and challenging arenas. Every match is an epic test of skill, speed, and strength, and every victory brings additional glory and bragging rights to the winners.

Clockwork VALKRIs salt these slugfests with powerful weapons and gadgets. Fighters scramble to grab swords, axes, hammers, blasters, rocket lances and more! Every weapon changes your play style and your options. Gadgets like mines, bombs, and spiked spheres add even more danger into the mix, letting fighters change the course of battle with a well timed-throw or carefully laid trap.

Brawlhalla is a free to play, 2D platform fighting game featuring both online and local singleplayer/ co-op modes. When the final version launches it will include:
  • Online Team Brawl - The most popular format, two teams of up to four warriors face off in a frenetic, no holds barred brawl.
  • Online Ranked 1v1 - A personal test of skill where you match up against a single opponent to claim untold levels of personal glory in Brawlhalla.
  • Online Ranked 2v2 - Bolster your ranks with a friend to prove your mettle, wit and teamwork in frenetic 2v2 battles.
  • 4 Player Online Free for All - Ranked or casual matches where four fighters enter, but only one can win.
  • 8 Player 4v4 & FFA - Because the only thing better than four legends vying for bragging rights is eight legends battling for bragging rights.
  • Official Crew Battle Support - Teams, clans, crews, guilds and bands of Brawlhallans can challenge one another in crew battles to claim which crew has the most powerful contenders.
  • Local Free for All - Up to 4 players can play in free for all mode on one computer - perfect for friendly face-offs.
  • Local Custom Teams - Team-up on your local machine, by adding up to 4 bots into the mix for living-room level mayhem.
  • Alternate Game Modes - Brawlball, Bombsketball and more provide ‘casual’ ‘party game’ ‘just for fun’ alternate game modes with completely different objectives and just as much competition.

Early Access Available now for free!

Brawlhalla will always be 100% free to play, with no pay-to-win advantages and no in-game purchases to keep you from the action. In Open Beta there are a few things that we’ll be continuing to improve on, and a few things you’ll have special access to as a player who joins us in Open Beta.

Get this game in BETA for FREE here. Currently 8947 keys left at the time of writing!

If you’re looking to get your Smash Bros fix on the PC, this is worth checking out.

Really entertaining with 4-way multiplayer and the potential of future content looks promising. A great game to easily relax and play with friends.

Early Access Review
great fighting game. originally thought this game was going to be a "cheap flash-knockoff" of smash, but was surprised by how solid the game is.

netcode, balance, and matchmaking is all pretty top notch, better than an indie game of this type ought to be. art and animation is pretty good as well. it's simple yet stylized so gameplay doesn't suffer for the "flashy visual porn" that the new games suffer a bit from. gameplay is tight and responsive. hits feel substantive, and the wedapons are satisfying to use.

community is pretty good; and very competitive, so that's a good sign. the devs seem really "on the ball" with what their time should be focused on for developing a solid competitive little brawler.

game plays like the original smash bros on the n64, but with weapon-loadouts. so if you like the old smash bros more than the new ones, this game is for you. you'll probably like this game even if you like the new smash's better than the old ones.

Early Access Review

Very simple 2D game that is a lot like SSB. You get put on a little map with 3 other people and you try to knock eachother off the edge to score points. You can buy more characters with ingame gold or you can just use the free character rotation. For being a game that is in early access it is very well made. The nice thing is it's a very small sized game so it doesn't really take much to run it. Definitely recommend this to anyone who is a fan of SSB or just 2D fighter games in general.

Final Verdict;
