With comic book style art and rocking soundtracks, it offers a unique experience that you can tackle solo or as co-op with friends while defining the next step in the story with your choices. TO PROTECT AND SERVE While answering a routine call on a patrol, Dolphin, Star and Trouble -the most popular officers of the super-powered law enforcement agency, Stronghold- find themselves in a sequence of events that will alter the fate of the entire city. EXCESSIVE FORCE Let’s get one thing straight; if you ever think that a day in the life of a super-powered law enforcer is easy, you couldn’t be more wrong, as there are greater threats than street gangs in urban fantasy themed Mayhem Brawler. Using your arsenal of combos and special abilities, you and your co-op teammates should make life miserable for those super-powered criminals, defend yourself from the fury of werewolves, resist the hexes of street wizards and confront the megacorp led by vampire houses that enforce their goons to do their dirty deeds. THE MAYHEM UNIVERSE Comic book inspired hand-drawn backgrounds and frame-by-frame animations coupled with a rocking soundtrack will deliver a jolt of adrenaline to your controller. With the choices you make, you will shape the flow of the story and finally reach one of the three different endings in Mayhem Brawler universe, where each corner has a story to tell.

If you have already played and finished the best on the market, Mayhem Brawler is a second choice to seriously consider for the fan of the genre.

The comic book aspect and way that the whole thing is framed is spectacular, sadly the gameplay and longevity, less so.

Visually-pleasing, but shallow and overly derivative. Far from a bad game, but there's nothing here to separate it from the pack.

Even with the little pathing issues, and text overlaps Mayhem Brawler is an absolute joy to play, wither in single player or in 3 player co-op. The eclectic cast of characters, the grungy yet colorful setting and the bass thumping, bad guy busting soundtrack really help to encapsulate that 90’s vibe the developers were going for, they have managed to not only make a solid side scrolling arcade game but they also delivered a fun and unique story at the same time.
