Disney Melee Mania brings fan favorite characters to the battle arena on Apple Arcade
Disney melee mania – a new multiplayer game from Mighty Bear Studios, makers of Apple Arcade’s Butter Royale – joined on Friday catalog of more than 225 games. Your favorite Disney and Pixar characters will battle it out in colorful three-on-three arena matches to become the champion.
Disney Melee Mania launched with 12 characters, including Buzz Lightyear, Moana, and Elsa, each with three specific abilities related to their character’s personality. The game offers two modes: Team Rumble and Spotlight Dash. The simple objective of Team Rumble is to knock down your opponents and earn points. Spotlight Dash is a bit more complicated. To earn points, you have to stand on different spotlights on the map, some of which move around, making them more profitable.
Ben Chevalier, artistic director of Mighty Bear Games, noted that the latest Apple technology, like iOS 15, along with the A15 Bionic chip will deliver an ultra-smooth and responsive gaming experience. In a recent demo session, developers Mihoyo and 2K Games demonstrated how the new technology elevates Genshin Impact and NBA 2K Mobile, respectively.
Disney Melee Mania is reminiscent of League of Legends, with several characters competing for objectives in an enclosed setting. The view is top to bottom, rather than from the side like Nintendo’s, another brawler with a diverse cast of characters. Unlike Legends, which is serious esports, Melee Mania was designed to be a fun experience that all family members can enjoy together. The developers wanted to make the experience as accessible as possible, according to Mighty Bear Games. Shorter battle sessions (each lasting around five minutes) and limited character abilities provide a more streamlined experience than other multiplayer online battle arena games.
Mighty Bear Games included a social aspect to the game without compromising on security. To rally your team or interact with other players, characters can emote to signal what they need during battle, without any other chat function. This way, parents don’t have to worry about children playing on their own.
âWe want to avoid toxicity as much as possible when creating games,â Chevalier said.
Disney Melee Mania supports third-party controllers and up to six players. The game features special in-app events related to specific characters, where players can earn additional rewards, according to Chevalier. Additionally, he said the game focuses on fun Disney and Pixar characters that aren’t always in the spotlight.
If you want to experience Disney Melee Mania, you can subscribe to Apple Arcade through the App Store for $ 5 (Â£ 5, AU $ 8) per month.
