That Super Smash Bros. setting the standard for group brawls is as undisputed as the fact that new challengers appear regularly. Most recently, Warner has come up with the free-to-play hit MultiVersus cut off respectably, now the Danish block kings are stepping up Lego Brawls in den Ring.
This playfully relies on a low entry hurdle, the combat system could hardly be less complex: One button triggers the standard attack, which is equally strong for all fighters, two more activate extra attacks that are collected in the course of a battle, with the stick down you stomp. In addition to the free skirmish, in which up to eight players fight each other in the “everyone against everyone” format, there is a simple team variant of the “King of the Hill” concept and matches in which, for example, collecting objects is a victory condition pending. 14 themed areas from the Lego range (including three Ninjago variants) provide visual variety and the arenas are peppered here and there with specific peculiarities. Earning new minifigures should provide long-term motivation: over 250 pieces are included and their parts or attacks can be freely combined as desired – however, the activation procedure is very lengthy.
