My thoughts on the game

Its isn't fair that a free to play game requires a Playstation plus subscription. (i.e. Thats for PS players not sure about other platforms.)

Is It Any Good?

This is a good bet for kids itching to try battle royale games who may not yet be ready for grittier fare such as PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds or Call of Duty: Warzone. Super Animal Royale strips the genre of blood and gore, replacing these more mature elements with cute cartoon animals and generous dollops of humor. And by setting it in two-dimensions rather than three, the game becomes accessible to a much broader array of players, including those who may find first- and third-person combat too frenetic and intimidating. Despite these changes, the core battle royale tenets remain intact. Players still need to start off scavenging for weapons and gear, are still pushed into a progressively smaller safe zone, and the main goal is still to be the last player standing -- which, it's worth noting, requires no small amount of skill and practice. This may be a more kid-friendly game than other entries in the battle royale genus, but it's not child's play. You still need to be good to win.

And it has plenty of nice touches that help flesh out the experience, like a shooting range in the lobby where you can pick up and test out a variety of weapons before diving into the game, fun modes of transportation such as hamster balls and emus, and a line-of-sight mechanic that cleverly allows for strategy and hiding despite the top-down view. There are even bits of story you can uncover by talking to any non-player characters you happen to run into. It's a simpler variety of battle royale experience, to be sure, but it feels fully baked and is brimming with fun little surprises to be discovered as you progress. Super Animal Royale is a welcome addition to the category, providing a friendly competitive experience suitable for a broad range of ages, from elementary school kids to adults.
