Mayhem Brawler: Beginner’s Guide, Tips and Tricks


Mayhem Brawler offers a nostalgic experience reminiscent of classic arcade games like Streets of Rage & Final Fight. With both single-player and multiplayer options (including Remote Play Together), fans of the brawler/beat ’em up genre will find themselves right at home. This guide offers essential tips for beginners, ensuring a smooth entry into the world of Mayhem Brawler.



Beginner’s Quick Start Guide

Grabbing Enemies

  • Many players might not know that you can grab enemies, including bosses, and throw them to the ground. The game doesn’t explicitly explain this technique, but you can execute it by pressing the attack button near your opponent. Keep in mind that your foes can also grab you so be prepared to use your special move to break free & turn the tide of battle.





Weapon Pick-ups

  • To keep things fresh and exciting, Mayhem Brawler lets players pick up and throw environmental objects like barrels and boxes. These items are often strewn across stages, waiting for you to hurl them at your enemies and deal significant damage.





Food for Health

  • Unlike real life, picking up food off the ground and eating it is a great way to regain health in Mayhem Brawler. You’ll find a variety of food items, including doughnuts, pancakes, drinks, apples, and yes, even the infamous floor chicken. Keep an eye out for these tasty treats to stay in fighting shape.



Difficulty Options

  • Choose from four difficulty levels in Mayhem Brawler: Cadet, Officer, Superhero, and Legend.





Character Selection

  • The game features three playable characters: Star, Trouble, and Dolphin. Star excels in swift, telekinetic attacks and cosmic energy blasts. Trouble provides a balanced experience with punch-based moves similar to Wolverine’s claw attacks. Dolphin boasts the most strength, but at the cost of speed. Feel free to swap characters between chapters and find your favorite fighter.



Condition List

  • Familiarize yourself with the condition list for optimal gameplay.





Controls & Special Attacks

  • Learn the default control scheme and special attack mechanics to maximize your potential in combat.





Unlock Arcade Mode

Upon completing the story, players unlock “Arcade Mode” a one-credit, limited-lives experience designed for those who crave an authentic arcade challenge.



Misc. Tips and Tricks

  • Use your character’s special ability throughout the game.


  • Regular attacks replenish your power meter.


  • Take advantage of environmental pick-ups when possible.


  • For solo players, focus on defeating enemies one at a time.


  • Experiment with different characters to find your favorite.


  • Combine special attacks with regular attacks to create powerful combos.



Final Thoughts

Playing Mayhem Brawler feels like a trip down memory lane to the golden age of arcade games in the 90s. With three different endings available, there are multiple ways to complete the game enhancing replayability. A must-play for any arcade enthusiast.
