Gang Beasts is a ragdoll-physics-based team fight game that allows up to 8 players to engage in fun fights on a variety of different arenas. It features a variety of fun punches and kicks, as well as special moves such as headbutting, throwing, and throwing your opponent onto a meat hook. The number of moves is pretty limited, but the fights are fast and fun, and the physics adds a lot of variety. The controls are really simple, and it's easy to pick up and play. The graphics are also pretty good, and the animations are quite smooth.

Gameplay

In this game, you are playing as one of the ragdoll characters engaging in fun fights against characters of your friends. The game offers a variety of maps, each with its own special features. The gameplay is based on cartoonish graphics and physics. The action is not intended to be realistic, but rather enjoyable and funny. The physics may be a bit different from classic physics, but I assure you that it still counts as a physics-based game.

Graphics

Graphics are very simple, they are 3D but they have a very small number of details to boost performance, so in the end, the picture looks cartoonish. This gives a fun and lighthearted atmosphere to the game.

Replayability

Gang Beasts replayability is one of the best features of this game. You can play again and again, not only because it's fun to smash around arenas with friends using different characters, but also because if you are one of those who really care about high score, you can always try to improve it.

Controls

Gang Beasts controls are quite simple, you can move with WASD or arrow keys, move punching with mouse or left click, you can also use mouse wheel to zoom in and out, pressing the space bar or right-click on punching mouse will jump.

Conclusion

This game is suitable for people who love to smash everything around with silly characters, mainly because it has very simple graphics, but it is funnier than most of the games with realistic graphics.

  • Cooperative gameplay
  • Funny characters with different abilities
  • Cute cartoonish graphics
