Brawl Stars is a free third-person shooter game. From the publisher SuperCell, to which we also owe Clash of Clans, Clash Royale and Boom Beach, the title offers you to take part in fights of less than three minutes in solo or online by team of 3 players (called Brawlers).

The game allows you to embody several types of characters that have specific characteristics. As you progress, new characters will be unlocked, and you can upgrade the ones you already have. You can measure your performance using local and global leaderboards. A club system allows you to simply find your friends and exchange strategies. Finally, the title also offers items for sale to facilitate your progress.

The game is available for download for Android and iOS (iPhone, iPad).

Why play Brawl Stars?

Brawl Stars is one of those no-brainer games that allow you to let off steam and take your mind off things. Getting started with the game is not necessarily the easiest, but a small tutorial guides you in the use of the various game buttons during the first launch. The game is fully translated into French which makes it accessible to as many people as possible.

In Brawl Stars, you direct a small character through a kind of labyrinth where you must collect gems and other bonuses while knocking out enemies with your mini cannon (or your weapon depending on the character used). The game buttons (joysticks) are placed at the bottom of the screen to the left and right where your thumbs are when you hold your screen in your hand (this can be changed in the settings menu). Remember that Brawl Stars is a mobile game for smartphones and tablets, to download for iOS and Android.

The game is played in teams of three players (Brawlers), it is a battle royale type game. When you click the Play button, the system searches for other available players and creates two teams of three players. This allows you to play solo, in a way, in the sense that you don’t have to wait for your friends to be online to play. All you have to do is do what is necessary to help your team win their match (keep as many gems as possible for as long as possible). If you die, you lose the gems but still return to the arena. You will then earn points and bonuses.

You can also play with your friends. To help you do this, Brawl Stars gives you the option of connecting to your Facebook account. Also note that by default friend requests by other Brawl Stars players are blocked, you can change this if you wish by going to the settings (three-line menu at the top right of the home screen) . You can also join a club to play with members who are online at the same time as you. When you create a team, a little built-in chat (instant messaging) allows you to chat with other members and you also have an email-like messaging system.

As you earn points in the game you can improve your character (brawler). You can even unlock new brawlers, each with different characteristics, so you can change characters at any time if you wish. Note that you can test a new character before entering the arena with it. Be aware that bonus chests contain upgrades for all the characters you have, so they all evolve at the same time.

The brawl points and green gems you earn during gameplay can then be spent in the store to purchase upgrades, skins, bonus boxes, and more. Of course the game includes in-app purchases that allow you to acquire packs of green gems. Regularly skins and other gifts will be available for free in the store, don’t forget to read the info to keep up to date.

Brawl Stars also offers you to follow match videos of other players as a spectator. To do this, go to the menu and click on TV Brawl.

The game is quite fun and addictive, you won’t like to lose and you will love to win. You will like to test new characters in order to make better achievements on the battlefield.

What’s new in the latest version of Brawl Stars?

In addition to the usual bug-fixing updates and other practical improvements, Brawl Stars is one of those games that offers content or events depending on the time of year. Special skins and new characters are thus accessible for free or for less than usual so that you can acquire them: Christmas, Halloween, Chinese New Year, etc.

In addition, new seasons are regularly appearing with new types of arenas and additional levels for your characters. Everything is done so that you always want to play.

Which OS is Brawl Stars compatible with?

What are the best alternatives to Brawl Stars?

To stay light and fun you can turn to the other SuperCell games: Clash of Clans and Clash Royale. In Clash Royale you will find the game in arena (with towers to destroy) but this time you will have campaigns to lead and the game is played in portrait view. Clash of Clans meanwhile offers you to build a village and attack the villages of other players.

In the long list of multiplayer arena games here is a small selection. These games are available on mobile devices for free, most are games with polished graphics and take place in a fantasy or heroic fantasy universe.

The brand new League of Legends: Wild Rift will dazzle you with its beautiful graphics. The player chooses his character from a list of 50. The game is played in teams of 5 players. In the same style you can also embark on the adventure with Arena of Valor.

Still in 5 against 5 you can also test Heroes Evolved, there too beautiful graphics for a Fantasy type environment. The game also features a Battle Royale mode and an Exploration mode.

If you prefer vintage pixel-like graphics, don’t hesitate to test Warspear Online a cross-platform game (Windows, Mac, Linux, Android, iOS). Still in a Fantasy type universe whose graphics are very similar to what we could find in the first Zelda. You can play it alone or in a team.

To finish this small selection, players preferring computers to mobile devices will be able to test DOTA 2 for free. Initially a simple Warcraft combat mode, Dota has become a game in its own right. It is played 5 against 5 in the fantasy universe of World of Warcraft.

battle royale games

Brawl Stars belongs to the genre of 3v3 or 5v5 player arena games. But you may also be interested in the Battle Royale genre where a multitude of players are dropped into a game level and only one can survive.

The Battle Royale genre has mainly been brought up to date by the famous Fortnite, whose mobile versions are currently not available on the Google and Apple stores, but it is still possible to play on PC. Its direct competitor Apex Legends is also only available on Windows. They are both free.

If you like crazy games where only one will survive, you can also turn to the phenomenon of 2020: Fall Guys. Only for Windows 10 this game is paid.

If Fall Guys is too crazy and Fortnite not cartoon enough, then treat yourself to Battlelands Royale, a battle royale game with fun cartoon-like designs. Can be played alone or in a team.
