Lockdown Brawl is a multiplayer battle royale card game developed by Bombay Play. The game looks pretty good and well made. Starting it up, you get an introduction to how the game works. The game is actually a lot like UNO (The game by Mattel) except you need to defeat your enemies by fighting them. Your cards have characters on them and each character has its own powers. You go up against people in multiplayer battles and each card you use against them will deal some damage. The goal is to be the last one standing. Here in this article, we will review Lockdown Brawl and share our first impressions of the game.
Play multiplayer battle royale with unique cards
Starting off with the Lockdown Brawl review, the gameplay is pretty easy to understand and get used to. With the help of your cards, you attack and deal damage to your enemies. Each player gets a chance to play and playing a card deals damage to the person in turn after you. Like the game UNO, there’s a color and character scheme and you can only choose a card that has the same color or character as the card on top of the playing deck. At the start of the game, each player has to give out some money. And you get some back at the end of the game. If you win, you also get health tokens, in-game cash, and cards.
The game also has special attacks that can skip the next player’s turn, reverse the playing order, change the current card’s color, and deal damage to all the players at once. By playing the same card as the person before you, you can counterattack your opponent’s move. If you don’t have a card, you can draw one. Keep in mind that you only have a limited amount of time to play a card so you’ll automatically have to draw a card if you don’t play within the time you have.
There’s also the option for buying emojis with the in-game money you win and reaction messages are free. As you progress in the game, you can get access to newer and more powerful characters and the game does match you with other players of your own skill level. You also get things like chests as rewards and chests take a certain amount of time to open. The game has a health system as well and if you upgrade your health, it’ll help you later on during matches. Special cards can also be upgraded to increase effectiveness.
Simple graphics and easy controls
The in-game audio isn’t anything special… It’s more of a muzak kind of soundtrack and it does get to you after a while. The game has pretty good graphics and the graphics follow the comic book-ish theme the rest of the game has. There’s a lot of attention to details and the overall look of the game is pretty appealing.
There’s also not much in the way of controls. You just pick up cards and drop them onto the playing deck if the characters/ colors match. The game is in portrait mode (which suits it) and the UI is okay. You don’t really get an introduction to the main menu and how things outside the battles work. But once you get the hang of things, you’ll know your way around.
Exchange your cash for chests
The game does have a bunch of In-App Purchases and they will give you an edge over other players in the game. With real money, you can buy in-game cash which can get you chests. Chests contain cards that can make games easier for you.
Chests can still be obtained for free by playing and the game has free chests which you get after a certain amount of time. You can also watch ads to get in-game money and luckily, the game doesn’t have those annoying ads which pop up after every game.
The game is a pretty good multiplayer for some casual fun. It’s a very creative concept and the execution is pretty good too. The game is well designed with easy to understand mechanics and you’ll learn how to play well pretty quickly.
Overall, the game is pretty easy to understand. It’s like a battle royale but instead of guns, you’re equipped with cool looking 2D characters with special powers. What’s more, you can also add your friends to the game from Facebook.
