ACS Brawl-Stars! is a 3D fighting game developed by Orange Soft and published by ACS Softworks. Released for Arcades (System 202: ENDYMION), XBox ONE, PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch and the Samsung Zeo.

Gameplay

ACS Brawl-Stars!'s gameplay is unique in conparison to that of other ACS fighting games. Fighting takes place in isometric 3D arenas, with characters being able to run in all eight directions. Stages feature platforms that players can jump on, as well as items that they can use for their advantage or disadvantage. The game also allows up to four players at the same time.

The game uses a 5-button system composed of Speed, Power, Special, Guard and Jump. Speed is used for quick, yet weak attacks, Power is used for the stronger, slower attacks, Special allows the player to perform the character's special ability (Kiyo's 2-hit knife attack, Yuko's lightning shoot, The Games Club Quintet's tag ability etc.), while Guard and Jump are used for blocking attacks and jumping, respectively.

The game's HUD consists of a Health meter that decreases as the player recieves attacks, and a Special meter which allows the players to use their Special attacks, as long as it dosen't run out. By default, each player has three lives by default. Once knocked out, the player will lose one life. Once all lives are used up, the player cannot return to the battle. Once all players are knocked out, the remaining player is considered the winner.

Each player also has a Panic meter, that starts off empty, but fills up as the fight progresses. When filled up, the Panic meter also allows the player to unleash their Mega Bash attack, an extremely powerful attack that deals a significant amount of damage. Mega Bash attacks are performed by pressing all three attack buttons simultaneously.

The game is presented in a chibi, super-deformed style, befiting the more light-hearted and humorous tone of the game. However, the characters' standard appearances can be unlocked in the console version by finishing Arcade mode with said character.

Items

There are three kinds of items: Powerup, Weapon and Trap. Powerup items grant the player buffs, like faster movement and stronger attacks, Weapon items are, as their name indicate, weapons that can be used against the enemy until they break after several hits, and Traps are items that are used to trick other players to their disadvantage.

These items can be found scattered all over the arena, with some of them hiding inside crates and other obstacles that the player can destroy during the match.
