Players brawl their way to the top by dominating adversaries in head-to-head card matches, deploying goons to take over rival headquarters while defending their own safe houses. Join a squad to gain protection, survive in four-player rumbles and earn new cards to progress through perilous cities.

Become the ultimate mob boss in Goon Squad by mastering key gameplay, including:

  • Head-to-Head Brawls - Battle rivals in real-time to take control of an opponent's headquarters, and win Skulls and Safes, containing rare cards, chips and cash.
  • Family Business - Become the Godfather by gathering a team of goons to do your dirty work or join an established squad to gain protection and cash.
  • Become the Top Brawler - Hone brawl skills in co-op and four-player deathmatch modes, each with its own leaderboard, ranking system and reputation points.
  • Last Man Standing - Defeat and outlast other players in Rumble Mode, a four-player free-for-all fight to earn coveted trophies.
  • Rival Base Attacks - Send in hired goons to overthrow an opponent's headquarters, while still defending against assaults.
  • Turf Wars - Progress through iconic yet perilous gangster locales like Chinatown, Reno and the Boardwalk to claim special cards and improve your reputation.
  • Risk it All - Play slots after each battle won, wagering the safe for a chance to win a better prize -- or even the coveted jackpot. Or play 5-reel slots every couple of hours for even more chances to win.

"Set in the illustrious era of mobsters and criminal empires, the gameplay in Goon Squad is equal parts lighthearted and mischievous," said Fred Chesnais, Chief Executive Officer of Atari. "With this launch, Atari builds on our experience in the simulation game market and our growing mobile portfolio, while taking a note from the increasing popularity of digital card games."
