What parents need to know
This game was released a few years ago, but it gained popularity by the time it became free-to-play in late June 2022. Players who have purchased the game in the past are entitled to additional items when the game is opened.
The levels are easy to navigate. The obstacles are big and visible. It’s easy to get good at this game. There are a lot of new players who have started playing Fall Guys since it became free-to-play, so the player doesn’t have to compete against experienced players.
Violence, fear, nudity?
The characters, who look like jelly beans, can push others into a precipice, but in itself, it’s quite comical. The game takes place in a universe resembling cartoons.
Language level used
No problem. However, when playing online games with friends, they can not control what others say.
The atmosphere of the game is very lively and jovial. Players are not penalized when they are eliminated, and they can quickly return to a new game.
Minimum reading level required
Must know how to read for a few years to navigate through the menus, but the parts in themselves do not require any reading.
Additional costs ?
The player is constantly asked to buy downloadable content, that is, costumes for his character. All these items are cosmetic, they do not allow the player to be better at the game. If the player plays without any purchase, his character will have a very dull appearance compared to other players who have decided to shell out money. This then motivates the player to spend in order to have a character that is much more aesthetic and attractive.
It is possible to buy the Season Pass : it is a feature of the game that allows you to acquire new costumes. The game is made up of seasons that each last a few weeks, and the Season Pass available each season changes the costumes that are possible to get. Some costumes are exclusive to the Season Pass, which could create a sense of urgency to buy them.
The costumes that can be purchased may not improve the player’s performance, it is only cosmetic.
Learn about parental controls to control possible purchases.
We also wrote an article about the Battle Pass of the fortnite game which is exactly the same principle as the Season Pass of the game Fall Guys. You can read this article here.
When buying items, there is no confirmation prompt, so if you click on the purchase button by mistake, the transaction is made automatically if a credit card is tied to the account. It is not possible to get a refund on purchases.
Minimum level of execution on the controller required
The controls of the game are very simple. During the games, you have to use 3 buttons, the left joystick to control the character and the right joystick to control the camera. Having to orient the camera with the right stick constantly can be confusing for people not used to 3D games.
Principle of the game
The game focuses on acquiring costumes in order to customize his character. By purchasing the Season Pass, the player unlocks costumes as he progresses through the rounds. The more rounds the player succeeds in the same game, the more costumes he unlocks. When he passes rounds, he gains levels, all of which are associated with particular rewards (costumes and money from the game, in particular).
We buy costumes with Émissous (the money of the game). You earn Émissous with the Season Pass or by buying them directly in the game store.
There are 2 levels to the Season Pass :
- Regular Season Pass – 950 issued under: allows you to get costumes faster.
- Season Pass Pack – 2800 issued under: allows you to get costumes faster, in addition to gaining 25 levels at once (and therefore, costumes).
We remind you that costumes have a cosmetic value only, they do not improve the performance of the player.
The game requires the creation of an Epic Games account. When the game opens, it will display a message asking to create the account (or log in to an existing account) with a phone or computer. Through this account, you can play with people on your friends list.
