Babble Royale is a free-to-play battle royal game based on the popular board game Scrabble. This one takes hints from player vs. player Tetris modes to make the game competitive. Use a random selection of letters to form words on a traditional scrabble board. If you use of your 15 opponent’s words to finish your own, you’ll do damage to them. What’s more, a danger zone around the board slowly shrinks, forcing you to use less and less. And being a word game, it’s notionally educational! (even if spamming short words is a viable strategy). Available on Windows and Mac through the Steam platform.

Super Mario is a Nintendo classic, but never really had a competitive element. Now, with Super Mario Bros. 35, the game has become a highly competitive battle royale where players show off their platforming skills to survive. Defeat enemies to send them to your opponent’s screens, and avoid the enemies thrown at you. Survive for as long as possible to claim victory. This is one of the slickest translations of Super Mario available on the Nintendo Switch, and the battle royale concept helps update it to today’s standards.

2) Tetris 99

Tetris has had competitive modes for decades, but Tetris 99 has taken that to a whole new level with the battle royale format. The classic gameplay of Tetris, where you must stack Tetrominoes to clear lines is matched with a steep learning curve. It’s instantly accessible, and frustratingly challenging, making you want to come back for more. A great game to hone you skills in over hundreds of hours. And it’s available on the Nintendo Switch.
