SuperCell's has done it again. They have a new game, Brawl Stars. It seems that every year, they are giving the fans a new sense of excitement with their new title. So, what is Brawl Stars as a game? Well, the game is basically Supercell’s take on MOBA or Multiplayer Online Battle Arena.
But if you asked me, then I will tell you that this is more like a third person shooter where your perspective view is behind the character that you are using. The ultimate aim is to take out your opponent just any shooter game is.
Unlike any other SuperCell game of the past, this game is played in a portrait mode. This may take time to get used to but this is the most optimal way of playing the game. On the other hand, Brawl Stars' controls is special in a way. Why? Because there are two ways of doing it. Joy stick and tap to move mode. These two types of control are there because others prefer one compared to the other. If you are asking me which is best for you, then I can't answer that question for you. The person who can answer that is no one but you.
It is within the player's preference and comfort. However, there will also be instances that a mix of two control modes will be employed. One player may prefer joystick if a certain character is in use, while, tap to move if he uses a different character.
One thing is for sure, when you are using the joystick mode, you are going to sacrifice the movement of your character. But the upside on this one is the fact that you will be a lot accurate in your attacks. So this type of mode is usually used with those characters whose primary aim is to damage.
In contrary to the joystick mode, tap to move is the best if you are prioritizing movement and agility instead of accuracy. This is perfect for those gamers who are support and prefer to engage less instead they are just there to help teammates or collect games as a team.
Based on personal experience, I do prefer joystick as my way of controlling my characters. This is because my philosophy in playing the game is "offense is the best defense". I usually engage in battles and accuracy is my priority. So that's it. I hope you learned something new from this new SuperCell game, Brawl Stars.
