Ratings and Reviews
THIS GAME IS GREAT! This game has that sweet style of music that really strikes a cord with jazz fans, and the characters are pretty fabulous. (Hehe, just play. You’ll see what I mean.) Each character has a unique play style, though I have found a universal combo for most of the characters. [Start Strategy Zone] I love the unique abilities of each character, like Peacock’s Under-Uppercut (That’s what I think it should be named anyways, lol.), or Parasoul’s Tear Mines, they all have a unique ability that helps build on their combo. For example, if you use Peacock, swipe down twice, then swipe up if the opponent isn’t blocking, tap twice, then uppercut or use a Blockbuster, and their HP should vanish. As for Parasoul, since she has Tear Mines instead, use her charge attack to detonate against enemies. Tear Mines are more of an experience to achieve kind of thing, but once you get it down, melting opponents is easy. Whenever you aren’t fighting, block and wait until they’ve used up a combo or you can dash in. [End Strategy Zone] By the way, I have extremely potent RNG strength and can get Golds out of the singular Premiums, so don’t be like me. Save up, and get the 10. To the devs, I LOVE YOUR GAME! This is one of the more unique games I’ve found since... This is one of the first unique games I will ever find. I love this game like I love my teddy bear collection!
Hi Pony Man of Doom,
Awesome review. Thank you for the kind words! We are proud to be in the same rarefied air as your teddy bear collection! :)
Updated this review changed from 4 to 5 star
The game play look great and the story and the way they set it up, only issue I’m having is understanding how it works and how to put the characters in play, I bought a few items and have no ideal how to implement them I’ve tried going to help menus and even tech support but it sends me to another site I have to login and I don’t like how it uses your email as your name, i don’t really want company name on a game wish you could change that in settings , I looked in setting how to and couldn’t find anything, looks great and I’m an avid gamer I just wish the interface was more user friendly.
Updated review: so after playing more and just going with what I did know so far, i eventually started to understand the set up better and maybe that’s part of Learning the game mechanics I didn’t think about that I just assumed I’d get how works right off the start but that could also be my impatience at work! Changed my 4 star to a 5 star, this is first time I ever wanted to update a review, my main reason for doing so is that fact the developer actually takes the time to read reviews and will direct you where to get help if needed. Thanks for your time I’d try the game out and keep playing for awhile even if you don’t get it at first, you will!
Thank you for the kind words. We will be implementing a feature to allow you to change your name in an upcoming update.

Just play the game already
Skullgirls is a great, 2d fighting game with unique characters and an interesting, multi ending story (depending on each character). Though the story isn’t fully in the mobile version yet, it’s still amazing and completely worth it. Since each character plays differently, you definitely start favoritising some over others. Personally I love using Parasoul, one of my friends prefers Peacock, another is a big Double fan. The stamina function makes sure that even if you do choose a favorite, your other fighters get balanced out and you get practice with all your characters.
Since refighting battles gives less experience than the first win, daily events help train lower leveled fighters that need experience.
Some battles contain randomized fighters which keeps things from being too repetitive and stagnant.
My main issue would just be that sometimes the game crashes on me, though it’s not too bothersome.
My data was wiped during the big server crash, but all the relics and such ended up making up for it heavily. In fact I’m further ahead now than I think I would have been if it didn’t happen. The company clearly cares about its players and I hope things continue to be great.
