Gameplay

Get to the end without being caught!

Play Guys is essentially the Red Light, Green Light game from Squid Game, but a hell of a lot more suited to kids. Instead of being shot down dead when you’re caught, you have a basketball thrown at you. Once you’re knocked down, the game is over.

Graphics

The graphics are very child-like and cartooney!

The graphics aren’t brilliant but if we’re assuming this is a game made for a younger audience, I don’t think it’s a bad thing. Everything is pretty cartooney with different characters you can play as. You start off as a dog but can also be a boy, pig, or even a banana!

Music & Sounds

The audio you hear in the background of the game is that typical royalty-free music you’ll find on most YouTube videos. I feel like Popa Radu can do better than this, but if we’re going back to the thought of this appealing to children, I don’t see a problem!

Controls

Drag to control!

The controls for Play Guys could not be more simple. All you have to do is drag your finger around the pitch to move your character. Once the doll turns around you must stop straight away – any movement will end the game.

The Power of in-app Purchases

The only way to update your skin is by playing!

Unfortunately, there’s nothing you can purchase in this game. It’s a shame because they could’ve easily made some of the skins available through transaction only. The only way you can unlock new skins is by simply playing the game.

The Verdict

What did you think?!

This game would be a solid 4/5 if it wasn’t for the poor audio and lack of in-app purchases. I think this is a great spin on the deadly Red Light, Green Light game from Squid Game.

I probably won’t keep this on my phone for much longer but it was nice to play for a bit!
