Blast Brawl 2: Bloody Boogaloo is developed and published by Mind’s Eye Games. The concept of the game is fairly simple and that is to survive as if you get hit once you will die. There are two modes that you are able to choose from which are competitive and survival. Competitive is where you can battle up tothree of your friends. You will each start with ten lives and the last man standing wins. Survival can be played solo or with friends as it will put you up against waves of enemies such as demons, robots, zombies and many more. You start with one life but each time you complete a wave you will also get another life.

There is a total of four different levels which you can choose from offering a different experience each time. You will have a total of 7 different characters to choose from which come with their own unique abilities. Learning each of the characters moves takes a little bit of practice bu once you get the hang of it, it’s smooth sailing from there. My personal favorite to use is the ninja as he moves at a very fast pace and his special ability is turning invisible which makes it easier to get the jump on your enemies. Each character has its own unique special ability and is useful in their own way.

I usually tend to stay away from indie games but as I kept on playing I found myself on the edge of my seat trying to see which wave I can make it up to. The graphics have a nice old school feel to it, and the game does this very well. I really liked how each level had its own set of enemies which kept it fresh as each different enemy cam with different attack move. This made you plan on which character would be best suited for the level and how to take on each enemy. You are able to choose from a variety of background music for when you’re fighting. This spices up the game play experience as you won’t hear the same repetitive tunes.

Playing with your friends is a blast; no pun intended; as if you can get a group of friends together it turns into all out mayhem. I was playing with two other people and even that had us at each others throats at times. It tests your speed and ability to attack at the right moment. I can only imagine how crazy a match would be with just one additional player.

The lack of content is the one bad thing that I found with this game. I haven’t encountered any glitches or bugs and it has kept me entertained for a decent amount of hours. As this is not the finished product, there will be updates added to the game in the future. I’m hoping for a story mode for each character, along with new levels and characters would be a nice addition. Being able to battle people online would be a nice addition as well.
