Fall Guys: Ultimate Knockout is an original multiplayer game that involves doing the weirdest tasks to get as many points as possible and stand on the podium. The game is created by Mediatonic studio, known from visual novel about dating pigeons - Hatoful Boyfriend. It was published by Devolver Digital.
Dozens of people are ready to take part in an abstract quiz show; the winner will receive an amazing prize. Players join this group, and there are some strange, funny and demanding tasks ahead of them. If players want to win, they must try, however, because the competition in the form of 99 other participants makes the proper execution of tasks not easy.
Fall Guys: Ultimate Knockout is all about multiplayer matches divided into a competitive mode, where everyone fights against everyone, and a co-operative mode, which revolves around team-based fights.
Each race is divided into rounds, during which some competitors are eliminated while the remaining players continure their efforts. The rounds consist of a variety of challenges: climbing a mountain full of obstacles, maintaining balance on a skateboard, reaching the finish line with a golden egg so as not to lose it, and many more.
The fun of the game also comes from observing people as they fall inertly, bounce off objects and each other, try to climb up a hill or try to stand still.
In the game there is also a possibility to personalize one's character by creating accessories. There are many of them to choose from, and their style is varied, so that everyone will find something to distinguish them from the hundreds of other participants.
The convention of the game resembles Japanese quiz shows, full of humour and absurd, whose style is additionally emphasized by the audiovisual setting. Catchy songs perfectly blend in with vividly colored visuals, associated with cartoons for children.
