Butter Royale

Butter Royale is a battle royale online multiplayer game exclusive to Apple Arcade. It is similar to the games with the last-man-standing ultimate goal. The gameplay features cartoonish characters that battle with food-based weapons such as bread loaf clubs, baguette rockets, or mayo guns. The players are not provided with a complicated plot behind this combat – the characters simply move and shoot, blasting each other with food with great enthusiasm.

We should mention that the game is nonviolent: it’s less battleground, more food fight. Allegedly, the goal was to boil the genre down to its essentials so that virtually anyone could pick it up and play.

Our testing portfolio holds several mobile gaming apps, and our QA specialists keep working to help game developers make their solutions compliant with the latest quality standards. This is our take on how Butter Royale can be improved.

Butter Royale is an absolutely fantastic royale battle game. It has a slick design and a good multiplayer for 32 gamers. To join the game, a user needs to have an Apple Arcade account. For users to get the promised rich gaming experience, the Butter Royale bugs should be eliminated. Namely, some functional, control, and UI/UX errors that I’ve spotted during testing.
