    "Has a big learning curve, need to study and have a lot of knowledge to know what routes to pick when X areas are being restricted. A lot of characters to choose from and definately fun to play a 2D Battle Royale. The only downside is that a game can take up to 30 minutes and you can't play with friends unless you manage to queue up together and enter the same lobby. Custom game works fine but not as rewarding as a normal game with league. If you marathon the game by yourself, your friends will be left out as you can't enter the same league for normal game which sucks. Otherwise a very fun and stressful game when it becomes hectic."

Did you know that the current trend of shooting-and-survival games like PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds and Fortnite are based on the controversial Japanese dystopian thriller film Battle Royale, which is in turn based on the novel of the same name? In 2000, Kinji Fukasaku and his son Kenta released Battle Royale, a film where a group of junior high schoolers were put on an island and were forced to fight to the death by the government. It was based on the 1999 novel of the same name written by Koushun Takami. Both the film and the novel were controversial that the film was given an R15 rating, a rating rarely used in Japan. Members of the Japanese National Diet criticised the film for its portrayal of the Japanese government and the scenes where 15-year-olds were harmed or were hurting others. In the US, American lawyers warned Japanese film distributors against releasing the film because of its extreme violence, especially with teen actors, while a court in Germany decided to ban the film because it was against its Criminal Code, though the ban was later lifted. Only in December 2011, 11 years after the Japan release, was the film publicly released in US cinemas, when the Cinefamily Theater in Los Angeles screened the film for 15 days.

    "This game is very realistic like PUBG. I liked it as it has the same survivor format. The whole point is to get to the end and be the last standing. Good gameplay and graphics. I was reminded how much it was like PUBG while I was playing. It is a good game that is very similar. Handles well on iOS and the movements are fast."

    "The concept of the game is great but the performance does not appear to be as great. Looks like an update is needed to fix a few issues but overall it is a good app for the price."
