Game of the Week

Brawl Stars

When you think of Supercell, your mind might, understandably, jump to Clash of Clans or Clash Royale. But the Finnish developer has other popular titles up its sleeve, including this week's Game of the Week, Brawl Stars.

While it's been around for some time, the multiplayer title recently got a huge update called Hypercharge. It introduced a new feature for a select number of brawlers, giving them the option to bolster their strength after building up enough Hypercharge energy. It looks to shake the action up and is worth checking out, whether you've played the game before or dropped off for a while.
