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.
Developer Response ,
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!
This game is legit as good as some pc games
I downloaded this game a couple weeks ago and i’ve been grinding a lot, almost every day, and I can’t seem to get enough of the game. I haven’t spent a cent but I can still get as far as everyone else by just playing. this game is hilarious, from intro/outro lines, but it even has JOJO REFERENCES. I could leave the review here from that last point alone but I have more praise for this game. I love the gameplay mechanics, they’re easy to learn and when you can eventually hit like 30 hit combos you feel untouchable. Another good aspect of this game are the constant updates and daily/weekly challenges. they keep the game interesting without necessarily getting repetitive. I’ve never gotten bored playing because as soon as i’m getting tired of fighting AI in story mode and prize fights, I can challenge myself on versus where you can win with numerous strategies and there are infinite possibilities of good teams to destroy people with. this game runs incredibly smooth, and i’m playing on a 4 year old iphone 8 with pretty much no storage left, but this game is the smoothest game i’ve ever played on IOS. hard to believe this is a phone game. basically this game is god tier. admins if there’s one thing i’d like to see different is that i’m coming to the end of story mode even tho i’m lvl 48, and the story is mad interesting too, so i’d love to see continuation if that’s possible.
