Gameplay

Get through the obstacles!

If you’re still waiting for Fall Guys to make it to mobile, the chances are you’re probably going to be waiting a long time. The good thing is that there are a few alternatives available. We’ve already reviewed Play Guys and Stumble Guys. Stumble was definitely our favorite out of the two as it was most like the original game.

Run Guys was the most like the original game we’ve played so far, to the point where we smell a lawsuit, however, it’s a lot harder to play. As you can see from the gameplay video, I had a hard time qualifying every single time. Not to mention, my own character moved a lot slower than all the others so it felt as if I was destined to fail.

Graphics

The graphics were very similar…

The graphics blew my mind – they’re so similar! Seriously… this is illegal, surely? Anyway, despite any legal issues, the game plays really well with no lagging or glitching. I enjoyed the graphics.

Music & Sounds

The music, again, is like the original game. It’s very upbeat but can become slightly jarring after a while, making me not want to play for too long.

Controls

Drag your finger to control!

The controls were awful if I’m honest. The control button was placed wherever you drag your finger which was a nice addition. However, the jump button was in the right-hand corner which made it really hard to use at the same time. Infuriating.

In-app Purchases

The Verdict

What did you think?!

I feel a bit cheeky rating this too high as it is essentially a rip-off of another popular game, however, I had fun playing it. I do feel like the gameplay needs to be made easier but apart from that, it was pretty standard.

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