Brawl Stars is a multiplayer online battle arena game where players battle against other players or AI opponents in multiple game modes. Players can choose between several brawlers that they have unlocked, each with their unique offensive or defensive kit. As brawlers attack and do damage to enemy brawlers, they build up their special ability, called a “Super”. Each brawler has their own “Super” ability, which can, for example, spawn a damage-dealing turret or a complete heal. Each brawler also has two unlockable (passive) abilities called “Star Powers”, which can be found in “Brawl Boxes” (the game’s version of a loot box), or inside the in-game shop once the brawler reaches their maximum power level. Furthermore each brawler also has one unlockable ability called a “Gadget”. A brawler’s gadget appear in Brawl Boxes and in the shop once that brawler reaches power level 7. These abilities are, once unlocked, usable 3 times per match and are activated by pressing a certain “Gadget button”. Additional brawlers can be obtained through Brawl Boxes as well. In addition, it is possible to purchase “skins” in the shop, which may alter the appearance, animations or sounds of Brawlers.
