In Brawl you have to strategically plant and detonate bombs, without killing yourself, while aiming to eliminate minions and other players, all from that classic top-down perspective. It sounds easy but quickly becomes quite tactical and chaotic. The single player campaign follows the story of 8 different eerie characters, all with their own back-story and special abilities.
The appearances of the playable characters are very unnerving to say the least. There’s a manikin doll missing an arm, a homicidal clown and a wheelchair-riding dummy to name just a few. The special abilities each character offers are varied too, from granting invisibility to allowing you to reverse other players’ controls.
