Gameplay

Giant.io
The gameplay is like a budget Fortnite!

Like all battle royale games, you start off by being thrown into a waiting area. This is where you wait for other players to join – and it lasts about a minute or two. On Giant.io, it lasts over 5 minutes, and it gets boring after a while. Luckily, there’s a football game you can play with the other players while you wait – but it still doesn’t make up for it.

Graphics

Giant.io
The graphics glitch a lot!

Giant.io’s graphics threw me off completely. I downloaded the game because the screenshots on the app store made it look extremely similar to Fortnite – but it’s not in the slightest. The concept of it as a battle royale game is exactly the same as Fortnite, but the graphics look extremely low budget.

When I was jumping out of the ship, I noticed on the map there was a space station that had crashed into the map so I thought it might be a good idea to land on it. I expected a lot of guns and other helpful items to be all over it. Wrong, so very wrong. I went straight threw it, and the game started glitching a lot. I couldn’t see exactly what I was doing, and it felt as if my character was moving like a snail. It’s now understood that the space station was probably just for show, but for me to be able to walk straight through it – that’s not good. Just a tip, Gyulane Boros, if you don’t want players to land on something, block it off.

Other than that mistake, the map, in general, lacks a lot of detail. The trees, houses, and other places all look very blocky and unrealistic. If you wanted to play a very low budget version of Fortnite, then this is for you. But I can only assume that there are absolutely no gamers that want that.

Music & Sounds

During the gameplay, there’s no music thankfully. But the sounds include birds tweeting, gunshots, and groans when you get killed. Honestly, this is probably the best part of the game because I didn’t find it unbearable.

Controls

Giant.io
The controls are hard to remember and access during the gameplay!

The controls for Giant.io are also a letdown. I found myself frantically trying to figure out which button was which every time I came across another player. But all that happened was my death.

The right side of the screen has all of the controls such as:

  • Shooting
  • Target
  • Hunch over
  • Emoticons
  • Jump
  • Build

The Power of in-app Purchases

Giant.io
Purchase coins from the store!
  • Follow on Instagram for 15 coins
  • Share for 10 coins
  • Watch video ad for 5 coins
  • Make a video on YouTube about Giant.io for 300 coins
  • 100 coins
  • 250 coins
  •  500 coins
  • 1000 coins
  • No ads

For some reason, I wasn’t able to view the prices of the coins as I couldn’t click on them. Gyulane Boros made the buttons for Giant.io too small for the average finger. This needs to be changed if they actually want people to spend money on their game.

The Verdict

Giant.io
What did you think of Giant.io?!

Giant.io is definitely not what I expected the gameplay to be like. It was obviously very cheaply made, and a way to make some quick cash – well, if they actually made their store clickable. It isn’t very often that I don’t have good things to say about a game, but this was an exception.

If you decide to download Giant.io, let us know what you think and if you agree or disagree with any of the things we said. Happy gaming and stay casual!
