Review: HyperBrawl Tournament – A Fun And Frantic Arcade Handbrawler

The Beautiful Maim.

Milky Tea’s HyperBrawl Tournament sees teams of futuristic handbrawlers compete in chaotic 2v2 matches where they duke it out — literally kicking, punching, stabbing and hammering each other into submission — in order to stick a great big metal ball into each other’s neon nets for a GOOOOOOOAL!
