Ratings and Reviews
A fantastic game, but with a concern
SkullGirls is very clearly a passion project and I love it. The animation, the music, the gameplay, and structure of the game is wonderful, and I’ve definitely put a lot of time into this game in the past few months I’ve been playing! And unlike other mobile games, SGM only requires that you spend some time playing rather than spend actual currency to make progress in the game, which is actually really nice and makes it far from being pay-to-win! The developers clearly put so much time, care, and attention into this game and have created something so beautiful and fun.
However, if you’re planning on getting into SGM or you’re a parent of a kid who plays/wants to play, I highly recommend turning the chat function off. While the game could be arguably rated 12+, the chat is absolutely not. There are countless people that use the chat function not to ask for advice or discuss gameplay, but to spew a LOT of inappropriate things. Whether it’s about underaged children or graphic adult drawings of characters from the game— or even just straight-up hate speech— the developers just don’t seem to care what goes on in their game chat. I can usually ignore this and move on as an adult, but what bothers me is that this game is rated 12+, so I really do think this is a massively inappropriate problem to have.
But again, bravo to the developers for creating such a masterpiece; I just hope they can make the chat more of a safe and comfortable experience.
This game is truly the BEST fighting game on mobile
I was very surprised of how well made and great this game is. The controls are simple but yet effective. The gameplay is good for beginners but you will need practice to be good. (Personally love that game design). The design of the graphically is AMAZING to say the least. It’s runs very smoothly (around 60-80 FPS witch is unheard of in mobile) the graphics and game art style is AMAZING. The character roster is really really great with characters for every different play style. And I love how that added a competitive mode with all of the characters unlocked and all moves unlocked. But Man I wish mobile would let us the skin of the character you own in competitive, like it would still be competitive but it would let me use my other big band costumes but only the skin not the stats, like an ult in smash bros or other fighting games or like in 2nd encore we’re they let you use a skin, and I want it because I want to show people cool looking characters and stuff but I don’t like playing free for all because not only people with characters that have the power level advantage would win 90% of the time, but the good thing is you can show off the cool characters. So if the game devs are reading this please add a feature we’re we can use the character costumes in competitive. This game is really really worth a download and playing and I’m only asking for one thing and that is to let us use our character costumes in competitive.

Thanks for the great review!
Expanding the options and features of the online Versus mode is definitely something we want to do eventually. I can't give any specifics yet, but it's definitely on our radar!
I am BLOWN away!
This game is absolutely great in every way possible. If you know you can handle it. It’s not for everyone. You need good hand eye coordination, and just being mature enough as you will enjoy the game even more. Getting premium credit is not difficult once you master how the system works a and how to properly use a good number of the 12 different fighters. I currently use Peacock, Squigly, Ms. Fortune and Beowulf really well now. Just playing a good amount that you get comfortable using combos and adapting makes it even more enjoyable. It will get slow after day not gonna lie but once I persevered and continued to keep players by I was rewarded with having lots of fun and getting excited to start getting silver tier and hopefully soon enough a gold tier. If you get stuck, you must remember as I don’t see too much help online,
Don’t sell anything (yet)
Upgrade Bronze even if you know there are silver and gold characters. (They are still good to have)
Take risks that fit how well you play.
I also love the comments some of these characters make after winning a match. I’m still laughing after the fact. Getting fully immersed in the story will be amazing for you. There are so many good things to say that you should just stop reading and play already. Thanks for this awesome btw, developers. Music is great, graphics is 200% on point, no glitching EVER and I’m happy to be playing! 🤩🤯🤗🤟🏻👏🏻👌🏻
