Released by Sollmo, Buddy Rush 2 is the sequel to the original Buddy Rush, and is being rolled out onto Android. Like the first one, the game’s visuals are focused on being “cute’, so the characters are all rendered with large heads on smallish bodies, in an almost doll-like fashion. All the characters, controlled by players or NPC, good or bad, are known as “buddies”.
Players will have 14 of these buddies to choose from, with more to come, that have five levels of evolution each, as well as three elements. When players assemble a team of buddies, they will need to be mindful of how they work together, each complimenting the weaknesses of another. Players will also be able to try their hand in the asynchronous PvP arena, as well as perform raids on over-sized bad buddies. In a feature that is ‘coming soon’, players will also have be able to engage in the Castle of Crisis, where players must defend their own castle while attacking their friends’ castles.
Buddy Rush 2 Features:
– Simple but challenging leveling system with async PVP arenas
– 14 Unique Buddies (currently 14, more to be released) with 3 Elements and 5 Levels of Evolution
– Each Buddy is equipped with their own unique skills (differs between elements) and evolution system.

Lastly, players can gather materials to evolve their characters, as well as pick up dropped loot, or craft their own, to upgrade their equipment, to say nothing of the thousands of cosmetic possibilities. The game even includes a “Gacha” system for players to acquire random weapons and gear.
