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 as a word game, it's educational (even if spamming short words is a viable strategy)! This gives it an edge over other would-be PG battle royale titles on this list. It's available on Windows and Mac through the Steam platform.

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.
