Brawl Stars is a Multiplayer Online Battle Arena (MOBA) game from Supercell. In other words, it’s a shooter game with the camera view behind the player.

Choose your Brawler!

Brawlers are heroes, troops, characters or champions (not sure yet, you choose) that you select to join battles. There are currently 21 Brawlers to choose from, each one with different skills and special abilities.

All Brawlers have different skills, type of attack and special abilities (called SUPER).


On most game modes you are engaged on 3 vs 3 battles, except for Showdown, a free for all mode. Here is the gameplay explained:

Gem Grab Game Mode

- Let's start with the controls. The blue joystick (left) is your movement control. The red joystick on the right is your weapon control, use to aim and shoot on your enemies. The yellow skull button is the SUPER, the special ability of your brawler.

- On the top of the screen you can see the game score. This is the Gem Grab mode, the team that holds 10 gems for 15 seconds wins the game.

- On the top of each Brawler you can see number, that's how many Gems each brawler is holding. If he dies, all gems are dropped.

- ChiefTom is my nick.

- Green bar: current life. The life also regenerates over time. If you are about to die, find a safe spot and wait a few seconds.

- The orange bar is how many shots you currently have. On this pic the bar is full, so I can shoot 3 times. Every time you attack the attack bar must regenerate. The regeneration time is different on each Brawler.

- Bubble on the bottom brawler: after spawning you get a shield that lasts a couple of seconds.
