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!

Keeps crashing


I have been a long time fan and player of this game and have seen many improvements and updates- such as making the loading screen a whole lot faster! But as of now, I can’t even play it because it’s keeps lagging and crashing. I’m forced to open the app every time only after one battle because it would not stop crashing. It’s incredibly hard to fight when it keeps lagging and it makes me lose streaks and energy. The game was working fine for a while since the last update, so I’m not sure what’s the problem is, but I would really really appreciate if you could get this fix. Also a side note but a while ago when you are selling your moves the scroll bar doesn’t scroll all the way back to the top of the menu whenever you sell a move. Now that it does it makes it incredibly frustrating when I have to scroll back down and find out what I was trying to sell, especially if I have a lot of moves and was trying to sell multiples of them. But anyways
I would be really grateful if I could be able to play this game properly again. Hope you guys can find the problem and keep up the amazing work!

Game Master Infinite

This is a game worth downloading. Try it for at least fifteen minutes, and you’ll be hooked. Take me, for example—I only came because of the character Painwheel, and I got utterly invested in the entire Skullgirls story, along with all its quirky, lovable characters, including Filia, Peacock, Beowulf, and even the more hate-able characters like Valentine, Eliza, and Double.
It honestly feels like BlazBlue: Revolution Reburning mixed with Marvel: Contest of Champions. It has a number of the same systems as Marvel, but with the fully fleshed-out battle system of BlazBlue. In fact, it improves on both. While microtransactions are present, they’re not at all necessary to get the most out of the game like in BlazBlue—in fact, you’ll almost never even feel the need for them, as the resources they provide are surprisingly plentiful during normal gameplay, and you can get a lot of bang for your buck (so to speak). Also, unlike in Marvel, getting the characters you want at the tiers you want them isn’t as agonizing as it might appear. It just takes patience and tenacity.
Overall, this is an amazing game. Come for the character you like, stay for the rest. Ladies and gentlemen...Showtime!
