UmbrellaCalibur is a 2014 Umbrella 3D fighting/party game developed by Unversed Entertainment. The game is a hybrid of Super Smash Bros. and Soul Calibur, and includes elements of both. Unlike most umbrellas it has a small roster of 12, with 8 starter and 4 unlockable. Customization is also a big focus. The story mode involves the Soul Trinity, a team of Miyamoto, Sakurai, and Reggie, important gods. When armies of forgotten game characters attack the trinity and steal the powerful Umbrella Edge, a team of champions are summoned to recover the power, and some villains join in to steal it as well.
The gameplay is similar to both Soul Calibur and Smash. It's a 3D fighting game with party and platformer elements. Each character has three weapons and a horizontal and vertical attack, as well as 3 special moves. Doing combos and guards increases the player's Umbrella Meter, and when it's full they can use their Umbrella Smash, a powerful attack. The goal is to knock your foe of the stage, or deplete their health bar. The envinorment can also be interacted with. The main mode Scuffle uses this gameplay, and players can either battle CPUs, against three others at home, or online.
Umbrella Edge mode is the story mode of the game, where players go across maps and go through various fights, minigames, beat em' up stages, and Dungeons, where the player must clear a series of challenges, and lastly Bosses, where the player must fight giant foes which require strategy. Boss Rush can be played when this is completed.
Classic is a series of single-player fights leading to an ultimate boss battle. Training Mode also makes an appearance, as well as Sumo Smash, where there is no health bar and the goal is to knock the foe off the stage. The mode Umbrella Run is a 3D version of Smash Run. Lastly, Minigames allows players to replay Minigames from Umbrella Edge.
|Dr. Mario||One of Mario's many professions. Mario has excellent air game and is fairly balanced. His weapons and moves revolve around Megavitamins and other Medical Supplies primarily.||
|DOA Dancer||Umm. So this happened. DOA Dancer attacks with dance moves and is a bit floaty with bad air game, but is overall one of the fastest characters and has decent power.||
|Loki||The love of women and men alike everywhere, Loki, son of Odin and brother of Thor(with whom he shares a sibling rivalry) joins the battle. Loki is a fast powerhouse immune to magical attacks, but takes double damage from all attacks, leading him to be a risky character.||
|Big Barda||A heavyweight gal, Barda is an obscure DC heroine. Her speed is low, but her attack power is incredibly high, so her power can be used to dangerous levels on some foes, but anyone with high speed is practically invincible to Barda.||
|Scrooge McDuck||The richest duck alive. Scrooge McDuck is fairly fast and has good power for his size. However, he is lightweight and can be launched forward very easily.||
|Maleficent||An evil sorceress who casts a horrible spell on Aurora. Maleficent has excellent range and powerful attacks, but is slow and has awful air game due to her robe.||
|Bill Nye||The science guy. Despite his jokish appearance, Bill is a full-fledged character who utilizes various scientific devices in battle. Bill Nye has medium-low speed, medium-low attack, and medium-low jump. However, he has a range of attacks that can boost him up, making him a risky but powerful choice.||
All stages can also be played in Boring mode, where Stage Hazards are non-existant and the layout is basic.
