Nickelodeon All-Star Brawl Review
Nickelodeon All-Star Brawl is a unique fighting game that features stars from extremely popular shows and games by Nickelodeon. Download Nickelodeon All-Star Brawl and meet Mutant Ninja Turtles, SpongeBob SquarePants, Patrick Star, CatDog, Aang, Louds, Helga Pataki, and other playable characters to see who’s the strongest!
What do you expect from a game by Nickelodeon? It’s a rich, colorful animated festival in pseudo-3D, featuring original designs of popular characters. Despite being a classical 2D platformer, the game features three-dimensional models of all stars and layered backgrounds. As a result, it looks terrific. Animations of characters jumping and falling, beating and pushing each other, ricocheting from walls, and landing on platforms will surely make you laugh.
Spectacular as it is, the game does not require a very powerful PC (if you prefer to download it to PC). An old machine with 4 GB RAM and GTX 960 2GB (or similar hardware) will handle it well. But prepare 15 GB on your hard drive, because these characters need much space. On consoles, there will be no issues at all, even if you are still on last-gen ones.
The game takes place in a pseudo-3D environment, on a set of platforms that changes with each level. Your character can move in any of eight directions, easy to control with the left joystick of your gamepad… or with WASD if you please. There is a unique feature named “strafe”, preventing you from losing aim when you move and attack at the same time.
You can install Nickelodeon All-Star Brawl for PC and on consoles – not only PlayStation and Xbox, last-gen and next-gen but also on Nintendo Switch. Hardly will this heavy game appear on Android or iOS. But if it does, preorder it immediately: it may look even finer on smaller screens.
Brawl games are similar, and if the thought of Super Smash Bros. just crossed your mind, it’s for a reason. You control your character and fight others on various stages, designed as imaginatively as the original shows. The mission is to push the opponent beyond the stage. Though the violence level in this game is quite conventional, and (like in all kids’ shows) it has no serious consequences, the gameplay is still engaging. Each character has a unique set of attacks that a player can apply versus others. There are few if any boundaries to what you can do to your opponents… or them to you.
The game supports single-player and multiplayer modes, both online and local. There is never a lack of players, so you can find someone to play with even if lockdown keeps your friends away.
