Positive messages?

Encourages competition between players. It is also possible to play cooperatively and as a team against an opposing team.

Additional costs ?

Additional characters are available for purchase separately on the digital stores of consoles or computers. The game pushes a lot to buy by frustrating players or asking them to repeat unnecessary actions many times to earn points.

Has a virtual currency (Gleamium) in the game in order to confuse users about the amount they have spent. Naturally, it does not correspond to the equivalent in dollars.

Local game modes

Training, tutorial, and fights of 1 to 4 players. Nothing more for now.

Online gaming modes

As the game is free, there is no need for a subscription to play online on console. However, you must use a WB (Warner Bros.) account to play the game. This allows you to keep your progress between the different consoles and computer.

Possibility to play in all-on-all mode with 4 players, in 1 vs 1, or in 2 vs 2. The game is clearly optimized and planned for 2 vs 2 in order to differentiate itself from the others.

The game is crossplay! Playstation players can play with Xbox and PC players, and vice versa! This is rare enough to point this out.


The game is free to play and download but has an aggressive monetization naturally in order to compensate for the costs incurred by the development of the game.

It is very pleasant to play, very well done and can entertain you for many hours if you linger a little.

However, it will be necessary to agree with the child, on the characters he has the right to obtain or not.
