What is Fall Guys?

The game lets up to 60 players compete online with a battle royale style gameplay. The objective is to qualify for subsequent rounds by successfully completing each of the randomly selected mini-games. Players who cannot clear the rounds to advance are eliminated, and the last one standing is declared as the winner.

Why is it so popular?

The game is immensely popular because it’s very easy and fun to play. A few months back, the traffic on the title was so excessive, that the developers had to take it down to make the desired changes. The game is very addictive and everyone from children to old people loves the game.

The simplicity of the game surely makes it different from other battle royale games. It sets an example in the gaming community that you don’t need a $100m budget to make a successful and entertaining game.

The developers need a few sweeping changes and additions to keep it relevant and fresh.
