Among Us is a game of strategy and survival that is set in the aftermath of an alien apocalypse. Players will find themselves in the shoes of a single survivor out for revenge against the invading force. From the trailer, there is a lot of emphasis on the grim and gritty feeling of survival and the desperate need for resources. Being an indie game, the graphics are expected to be simple, but they are functional and will be adequate to tell the story.

Among Us is a 2D puzzle platformer game where you have to save your fellow citizens from a pandemic. The game is not an easy one, and the path is not always clear. The game is a mix between classic platforming and puzzle solving. With a little bit of everything, the game is an interesting and challenging experience.

Graphics

The graphics in Among Us are relatively simple and basic. Player models are well-detailed and offer some visual variety. However, the environments are very simple and provide little to no detail. The game is set in a post-apocalyptic world and the environments are very bleak and dark. Lighting is very dynamic and changes as time progresses.

The graphics of the game are not the most beautiful in the world. They are, however, not bad. The graphics are not a strong point of the game, but they are not distracting either.

Gameplay

Players are put in the shoes of a single survivor, with the goal of taking back the world from the invading aliens. The game is very open-ended and provides players with a lot of choice in what they do. Players can spend time exploring and scavenging for supplies or spend time fighting the aliens.

The gameplay is the strongest point of Among Us. The puzzles are interesting and challenging, and the controls are easy to understand. The game is short enough to make it replayable.

Controls

Among Us is a third-person game with a heavy focus on melee combat. Player can attack with their weapon, use cover, and flank opponents. Controls are very straightforward and the game does not require a lot of button presses to do what you want.

The controls of the game are without any flaws. They are not difficult to understand and the player can not make any mistakes.

Replayability

The open-ended gameplay allows players to do what they want. However, the lack of variety means that it will be hard to get to the end of the game.

Since the game is short enough, it is easy to replay it and try to solve the puzzles in a different way.

Conclusion

Among Us is a good game. It is not perfect, but it is quite enjoyable. The puzzles are interesting and the controls are easy to understand. The graphics are not the best, but they are not distracting. The game is short enough to make it replayable.

Pros:
  • The game is really fun and can be done with friends
  • You can send messages to other players
  • You can have a leaderboard
Cons:
  • You have to download the app
  • It's a little time consuming to set up
