Gameplay Overview

Compete with 60 other players in 3 to 5 random mini-game rounds. At every round, players are eliminated and ONLY THE LAST ONE STANDING wins the crown.
There are 25 different kinds of rounds, most of them you will compete against all players and some are team-based. With 3 buttons (jump, dive, and grab) you will race, dodge, chase, use logic, push and grab to qualify for the next round.
RNG plays a huge role in the game and TO HAVE FUN WHILE PLAYING FALL GUYS be open to laughing about everything, even when you are the loser.

Step 3: Game Evaluation

Divider for Step 3 Section

Build your expectations about the game by learning what it offers and how was The Partisan Spy’s experience.

USER INTERFACE

Game UI Rated as Innovative

The GAME IS SO SIMPLE that even a 5-year-old kid can figure it out alone. In-game menus are self-explanatory and key labels will guide you through the way.
​The HUD brings only the essential and when a mini-game round has a special action it shows up in the top left corner of the screen.

STORY

Game Story Rated as Absent

Even though the game is set to give players the feeling they are at a TV show and every match is a new episode, Fall Guys has NO BACKGROUND STORY.
​The only thing players know is that they look like jellybeans and the more crowns they get more famous they will become!

COMMUNITY POTENTIAL

Game Community Potential Rated as High

The PVP mode is known for gathering players together and building huge communities. But Fall Guys brought SOMETHING NEW to the gaming industry and the community sees that. It connects generations as appeals to every age. Friends and family will gather around to play and laugh at each other.

MOOD ANALYSIS

Game Mood rated as excited

Fall Guys can make you laugh.  For +75% of the 25 hours gameplay, my mood hit CAN’T STOP PLAYING levels. Winning episodes can surely boost your mood, as it’s fun to win, but most of the fun comes from being a clumsy jellybean fighting your way to not being eliminated in every round.

GRIND FEELING

Game Grind Feeling Rated as Absent

One special thing about Fall Guys is that even though it is simple to play, competing with 60 other players makes it HARD TO WIN. Easy wins could bring the grind feeling. But as you have to master every round and learn different things the game keeps you entertained for dozens of hours.

LOVED THE MOST

It made me laugh as I never did while playing a game.


 

DISLIKED THE MOST

Game hackers and server instabilities can really ruin the gameplay experience.

EVALUATION SUMMARY

 

As easy as it can be to explain what Fall Guys is, there is a challenge to describe and put in words its gameplay experience. It feels like every element of the game was thought and developed to bring us a smile. The sensation grows to a level that even losing becomes a reason to laugh.

 

THERE IS SOMETHING SPECIAL ABOUT FALL GUYS as there was when World of Warcraft was released or when PUBG made the Battle Royale genre popular.

 

It is still hard to tell what’s so special about Fall Guys but something is really clear, we play games to have fun and this game can make you genuinely laugh-out-loud.

 

It won’t be a surprise if in the years to come an “avalanche” of new “Fall Guys kind of games” is released. And this will be more than enough to know how on point Fall Guys is.
