Weekly Time Waster - ‘Knight Brawl’

What do you get when you put a bunch of sword-fighting knights together with wacky, bouncy physics? You get “Knight Brawl.”

In “Knight Brawl”, you play as a knight who battles other knights in gladiator-style battles. Instead of being a grim serious take on sword fighting, “Knight Brawl” instills physics that just plain don’t make sense, with a weightlessness that creates some hilarious battles for fun and enjoyment. Instead of slashing and stabbing, your sword swings around your body, which propels you in the air and lets you do somersaults and flips. This spinning of your weapon is both how you fight and move around.

In the beginning of “Knight Brawl,” you are armed and protected with a simple weapon, a barrel for armor and a plate for a helmet (no one said you were a WEALTHY knight). With some victories and gold collected under your belt, however, you get to upgrade your knight with better weapons and armor. When you face off against other knights, your goal is to smash their armor so that you can strike a final blow against them. You are just as vulnerable as they are however, so they can take you out just as effectively and easily as you can them.

There is a lot of scenery in “Knight Brawl,” with battles in many different locations, as well as different game modes. For instance, Tower Climb has you climbing to the top of a tower and fighting enemies along the way, simply using the wacky physics to go upwards. Castle Rush is the best one though; you storm different castles and rob kings of their greatest and most valuable possessions.

“Knight Brawl” has a lot to give and doesn’t ask for anything but your time. There are plenty of laughs to be had, which is a big part of what makes it one of the most enjoyable games I’ve played in a long time.

“Knight Brawl” is free to download on the Android and IOS stores, as well as free to play in a web browser on various websites!
