In its current early stages, Blast Brawl 2 will feature two modes: an eight-player Versus mode, and a four-player local only Wave mode. The developer, Mind's Eye Games, has plans to add more playable characters, enemies, levels, and even the possibility of co-op challenges. There's also a possibility of online co-op/multiplayer to be added, though that is a bit of a "stretch goal."

Tank Brawl Brings Classic Tank Combat to Modern PCsJohn Bardinelli

Tank Brawl takes everything that made Battle City so fun and brings it into the modern era. And in HD, to boot! The basic idea is this: you drive a tank, you shoot the tank's gun, and you blow up other tanks. That's... well, that's all you need to have a good time, right? Tank Brawl includes five different tank upgrades, destructible environments, seven power-ups, and simple controls anyone can figure out in like two seconds. Good for old retro gamers, but also good for kids.

In Space We Brawl is a twin stick shooter meets brawling game by developer Forge Reply. While the game supports up to 4 players competitively, two players can also form a team to go up against a team of two bots for some 2-player local co-op play. How well does the co-op work? Let’s find out....

Crawl is an arcade game that turns the concept of co-op play on its side. Here's the set-up: one player controls the hero, a typical sort of bloke who has weapons, items, magic and stuff. His job is to explore a randomly generated dungeon packed with traps and monsters, search for loot and gain XP so he can fight the final boss. The catch with Crawl is that those traps and monsters are controlled by other players, meaning as many as three of your friends could be working together to ensure you die. Even if the hero makes it to the final boss, the other players control that beast collectively, too!

I was worried that most, if not all, of the game would focus solely on single or multiplayer features, but luckily I was completely wrong. Yes, we can still set one to two computer opponents on one team and have one to three friends on the other, but that could be done since the beginning of the series. What modes specifically encourage a co-operative experience? At least four that we know of right now:

One of the focal points of In Space We Brawl is diversity in fighting styles. Players can choose from a variety of spaceships and weapons, mixing and matching eleven types of each for a total of over 100 unique combinations. Maybe you want a speedy but weak Pulsar ship that's got a plasma sword. Maybe you want something with a sniper rifle that's got an energy output to do some real damage. Or maybe, just maybe, you want to pilot a Striker, which uses grabs asteroids and slings them around as weapons.

Things are constantly in motion in Aces Wild. With fluid attacks, aerial combos, plenty of explosions and just-for-emphasis visual effects, there's no shortage of eye candy to keep you glued to the game. You play as Ace Wilder trying to defeat his brother Rex in a tournament. Well, Rex and everybody else in the friggin' world. Chain offensive and defensive moves together to build up your Wild Meter, which increases the strength of your attacks but also makes enemies more aggressive. Kind of like picking a fight with someone while working out at the gym. Only with more explosions.

As of this moment, Legend of Dungeon is available to purchase. The 2.5D sidescrolling roguelike takes a page from old school brawlers like Double Dragon and wraps everything in a moody, dynamically-lit RPG shell, complete with randomly generated content. The result is a challenging and great-looking game that throws everything at you from snakes to crawling things that latch onto your face.
