My Brute ($4.99; Free)

My Brute is a fun way to battle it out with others online and move up as a top Brute. It combines personalization of avatars with the online gaming community on the iPhone. If you like games like Mafia Wars/Mob Wars, read on. This app is probably for you!

Presentation

This game is very well presented. I really like the cartoony feel to the game with the avatars and the fighting in the arenas. The graphics are simple but impressive. It has a sort of anime feel to it. The theme is fun and colorful with lots of options for your Brute to be as colorful as you want. The animations of the Brutes and animals are fun to watch, but again simple. I think the developers did a great job on this part of the game.

Gameplay

There are a few different parts to this game. The first is creating a Brute. This is fun because there are a lot of different choices on what to make your Brute look like. The developers shied away from your typical looking person and went for the more anime-looking characters which I really like. You start out with the option to make three Brutes, but you can unlock up to eight throughout your gameplay.

Once you have your Brute created, you are ready to fight. You are asked if you have a master. If you know someone else who plays My Brute, you can ask them for their Master code, and you will unlock special powers for your Brute. Because none of my friends play My Brute, I was able to search online for a master code and unlock some powers. If you don’t have a master code, don’t fret, you can continue to play the game. I played the first few days without a master and then got one so that I could continue growing in strength. You also want to choose what type of fighter/dojo you want. Each type has a different advantage, so choose wisely as it will affect your skills.

Now you are ready for battle. Choose from 3 different opponents that pop up from the server, sometimes close to your skill level, other times, not so much. But even the skill level doesn’t show everything since you cannot see if they have special weapons or a helper, which can bring down health significantly. In all reality, it’s a crap shoot until you get into the arena and start the fight. But once the fight starts, there is nothing you can do. Watch as you battle it out with your opponent and hope that your Brute comes out victorious!!

my_brute_5

These are just the basics of the game. There are a lot of unlockable items as you play which can help enhance game play and help your Brute win more battles. The more you play, the more you discover for your Brute!

Controls

There is very little in the way of controls in this game since you aren’t actually fighting. Everything is touch based and very simple to navigate through. No guessing here; just touch and go. Simple iPhone style.

Suggestions

I think the big miss on this game was an instructional guide. I have never played a dojo styled game before, so I was a bit confused on how to obtain a master or get upgrades and more strength/power for my Brute. I also think that for this genre, $4.99 is a bit on the high side. I think it would be more reasonbly priced at $2.99 since there is little “game play” to it. Other than that, this game is very well layed out and simple to pick up and play. It has continuous replay value as you can always battle another player out there.

Conclusion

As seen throughout my review, this game is simple, yet enjoyable. For me it is great eye candy with the anime looking Brutes and animation. I really enjoyed it and will continue growing my Brute to be a lean, mean, fighting machine. If you’re having questions as to whether this genre is for you, try out Brute lite. It will give you a flavor of the game and help you figure out if you’re willing to pay the current $4.99 price.

    I’ve read so many comments saying that people could give you bears, wolfs and all skills. Crap I guessed – right until now. I tried one of those codes from a guy who seemed to be honest with what he tells and he really was!

    I got a wolf at level 2 and a polar bear at level 4, really amazing!
    And obviously i copied the hammer-ability from him. Really nice! :D

    Try his code: CIAJJHFE
    Or mine: MSIAFE

    Good luck! :)

    -fun, addicting app!! (got it last time it was free)
    -it will be a nice day, neither too hot/cold here in LA

    anyways, a helpful game tip: don't let anyone tell you otherwise—joining ANY dojo will only give you:
    -2x exp for all your brutes for 3 days after joining their dojo
    -a special power related to their dojo style (bear, snake, cat)
    -you WILL NOT necessarily get any pets or weapons just for choosing one dojo over another

    just throwing it out there, but my master code is J A E G I J F E, but why possibly join mine?
    -if you had initially created a Snake or Cat dojo, and want to learn "Bear Strength" from my BEAR dojo
    -MORE IMPORTANTLY–if you don't mind affiliated with a dojo by the name, "ANMA" :)

    -also, if you're the superstitious type and choose to believe the hype, my characters are quite the beast masters hehe. on my main brute I've gotten a polar bear, panther, dog, as well as Hypnosis skill (to steal pets) all before level 10!!!

    Contrary to some of the previous posters, the My Brute website states that the bonus you gain from levelling are not dependant on the level of the dojo, so don't believe those who say "Join my dojo and you will have a wolf/bear/…" The bonus is awarded at random based on some fixed probability for each bonus.

    So, I do not promise you anything, but if you want to join the dojo of the best looking brutes, Ikemen Paradise, use the master code:

    Any dojo you do join gives you 2x EXP for 3 days, and
    an extra unlockable Arena. First day you will be roughly level 5 if you
    win all you battles. I already have all types of Pets and got some
    really good skills, weapons, and supers. People are saying that helps in
    chance to get Rares, which are all the pets, and some skills, and
    supers. and weapons. I not really sure that is how it works. But it does
    seem to. So join Me, and let me teach you the awesome power of My
    Brute.
