A massive jellybean race for the crown
Fall Guys is a party game, but it's also battle royale. The two mix together beautifully in a creative amalgam of lighthearted tasks and ruthless opponents that's hours of fun.
Accessible gameplay and seamless graphics
You'll enjoy Fall Guys: Ultimate Knockout's goofy design and frantic atmosphere, which makes it highly competitive and yet super-fun to play.
This game puts you against 59 other players and the last person standing wins. You'll go through increasingly tricky obstacle terrains. Your goal is to get to the end the fastest, with players getting expelled in every round.
Fall Guys plays out throughout five rounds of randomized courses that require strategic thinking, and luck. They will involve jumping, diving, and most frequently, foot races.
These minigames might be simple, but they all have unique flavors. Sometimes, random slime will make you slip from a rail, or giant oranges might fly your way. It's never dull thanks to the casually represented cartoon violence.
The gameplay lacks finesse, but it's exciting and fast-paced enough to justify it. Fall Guys is easy to grasp and master without getting too repetitive in the process.
You play a jellybean that you can customize by choosing a skin tone and an outfit among the vivid selection of mascot suits. The personalization won't affect your gameplay, but it will make you memorable.
After each victory, you earn points that count towards various cosmetic improvements. If you win, you can spend the crowns for rarer, brag-worthy items.
Where can you run this program?
For now, this game runs only on PS4 and 64-bit Windows 10 PCs.
Is there a better alternative?
No. Fortnite, the most popular battle royale, lacks the flavor of Fall Guys, while casual party games like Mario Party and Jackbox can’t host as many players.
While it lacks some finesse in execution, Mediatonic made a killing with this game. It’s unique and thoroughly entertaining, promising to become a hit.
Should you download it?
Yes, as long as you have a stable internet connection and enough patience for its laggier sections.
