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!

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.

Addicting and Fun! A+++


I played the old LINE version of Skullgirls, and loved the game to death even then. After anxiously awaiting the release of this new version, I have not been even slightly disappointed. The artwork is still beautiful, the characters still animated and fun, the controls still tight and responsive, and the game still amazingly fun and addicting. The fighting is deeply satisfying, and each character has a varied style that lets you find certain characters that work better for the individual. Plus they’ve added a bunch of cool little tweaks to the game, such as the original Japanese voices for the characters, and damage text for damage over time effects in game. In addition, while it does have in-app purchases, this is another one of those games where it’s not P2W. I haven’t paid for anything and the game is still addicting and fun to play, and I never feel like my experience has been ruined in any way. A big shout out to the developers for making such an awesome app, and for making the transition to the new app easy and painless. You created an awesome game with an awesome following and you guys don’t get enough credit for it. Can’t wait until Ms. Fortune comes out! Stay awesome!
