Not in the mood for sub­tlety or nu­ance in your games this month? Maybe May­hem Com­bat will fit the bill in­stead. Vivid Games’ brawler fo­cuses on but­ton­mash­ing brawls, tak­ing cues from Nin­tendo’s Su­per Smash Bros. se­ries as you face off against other on­line play­ers or work your way through cam­paign mis­sions against AI op­po­nents.

It’s all about smash­ing the com­pe­ti­tion and be­ing the last player stand­ing, and while the depth of the com­bat leaves a lot to be de­sired, the abil­ity to pum­mel ran­dom on­line foes is nice – es­pe­cially with up to 10 play­ers in a match. The char­ac­ters are about as imag­i­na­tive as the ti­tle – so, not very – plus the car­toon­ish vis­ual style strongly re­calls Fort­nite, but May­hem Com­bat still de­liv­ers quick, chaotic fun.
