Take the Battle Royal genre, remove the weapons, get inspired by BattleRoyal TV shows like Takeshi's Castle and WipeOut instead, and combine it with the cuteness factor of the Minions, and you've got the simple but ingenious concept of Fall Guys: Ultimate Knockout.
Join a battle that escalates chaotically round after round with up to 60 players online. Fall Guys: Ultimate Knockout unleashes hordes of participants. Fight against bizarre obstacles, push your way through unwelcome competitors and overcome the merciless laws of physics on your way to true greatness. Surrender your dignity at the door and prepare for many defeats before you can claim the crown. The idea is that the contestants are eliminated in successive rounds until there is only on survivor left. And of course, foul play is allowed. All this is seasoned with the possibility of disguising our long-suffering participants with elegant pigeon suits, Mexican hats, pirate, or dinosaur costumes. Combined with exaggerated physics, which make moving more difficult, but also much more fun.
The game characters play a large part in the constant fun of the game. They are basically, a colourful blob with arms and legs, called Beans - or simply Fall Guys. With all their slapstick animations, cute noises, and funny costumes, the characters are designed to make you laugh. Especially when you're in a group with up to four friends and make fun of each other's failures. The colour, pattern, and face of your personal character can be changed. The cosmetic options are earned through advancement in a seasonal progression system and can also be purchased in an in-game shop. For the latter, you will need one of the two currencies Kudos and Crowns. Kudos are available after every game, depending on how far you have come. Crowns, however, are mainly earned by winning, while Kudos can also be bought with real money.
