Gameplay

Battlelands Royale
Fight to the death!

Battlelands Royale doesn’t have a story, instead, you’re a random character that’s dropped onto a battlefield to fight to the death. As the number of survivors goes down, so does the size of the battlefield – this lowers your chances of finding new weapons, ammo, and other helpful items.

Unlike other battle royale games like Fortnite for example, you are shown a map before you enter the game and you get to tap on where you want to land rather than jumping out of a plane. Once you’ve picked your place to land and the correct amount of people have entered the game, you will start falling from the sky on a parachute ready to land in your desired area.

Graphics

Battlelands Royale
Enjoy the cartoony-style graphics!

Battlelands Royale’s graphics are cartoony and cute, which makes a difference from other battle royale games where the characters look a little nastier and more detailed. I actually enjoy the cartoony vibe as it contrasts against the violence of the actual gameplay.

Music

The music and sounds are a little bit annoying but it fits in with the whole cartoony vibe of the game. The characters make weird noises when they land and I’m not entirely sure if you can turn the sound off.

Controls

Battlelands Royale
Control your character with two joysticks on either side of your screen!

Right off the bat, the controls are pretty complicated despite how simple they look. You use the left joystick to control where your player walks and the right joystick to aim and shoot your weapon. It’s very hard to aim properly, especially because the camera is from a birds-eye view. However, this also works to an advantage as you’re able to see if anyone’s creeping up behind you. So it’s easier for you to get prepared to defend yourself.

The Power of in-app Purchases

Battlelands Royale
Purchase items from the Battle Shop!

There is a battle shop collection where you can purchase collections, battle bucks and featured items. The majority of these purchases are really to improve what your character looks like, not to improve your skills. When you’re thrown onto the battlefield, you have to find yourself a weapon – they’re dropped around the map. I don’t know about you, but I don’t think looking good is relevant unless you’re a hardcore player.

Prices:

  • Mushroom parachute for 500 battle bucks
  • Umbrella parachute for 800 battle bucks
  • 1500 battle bucks for £13.99
  • 500 battle bucks for £4.99
  • 3500 battle bucks for £25.99
  • 7000 battle bucks for £43.99

The verdict

Although this game is pretty similar to Fortnite, I find it unique. From what I can tell, it seems as if Battlelands Royale is aimed at the younger children who want to play Fortnite but their parents won’t let them. Unlike Fortnite, Battlelands Royale doesn’t have an option to speak through the mic so there is no chance of anyone being horrible to you.

The cartoony vibe also adds to my theory that this is aimed at children, it’s friendly, bright and the characters look approachable rather than scary.

I would definitely recommend this game to anyone who likes Fortnite and I believe that 9+ is a suitable rating for Battlelands Royale.

Battlelands Royale Overall Rating: 3/5
