Among Us - Murder mystery at its best

The game to play in 2020.

What is it?

In the past couple of months, this game has emerged gaining immense popularity. It is a micro-budget game produced by three developers at the gaming company Innersloth.

Compared to other games that have gained as much popularity, this game is relatively simple, developed simply, and designed to be simple to play.

Just how popular is it?

Among Us earned 18.4 million mobile downloads in August, almost eight times as many downloads compared to its July count of 2.4 million downloads.

Additionally, it is currently the fourth most popular game on steam. Just to offer some understanding of what it's like, the game is very similar to game mafia.

How do you play it?

The characters in this game are based on colors. No two people can be the same color in one game.

Each game consists of a 10 person limit and you can choose the background on which you play the game.

The settings for each game are determined by the host. The people in the game are known as "crew members" and usually one or two are selected as imposters.

The idea is that you, as a crew member, have to complete different tasks around the area. Once completed you and the other crew members win the game. And the tasks are relatively simple.

The imposters, on the other hand, have to prevent the crew members from completing tasks while staying alive. Imposters can kill other players or sabotage the field making it easier for them to kill. They can also travel through secret passages called vents.

Once a crew member finds a dead body, they can report it in which all activity is temporarily ceased and the other members are brought together to discuss who was killed, where, how, and who the imposter might be, and vote someone off.

Therefore, because of the simplicity, yet astounding effect, I give the concept of the game a 5/5.

Looks Simple Enough

This game is a mobile game usually played on either PC’s or phones. Generally speaking, the graphics and audio of the game aren’t necessarily anything too complicated or sophisticated.

The audio and graphic qualities are simple, intuitive, easy to follow, and have an almost retro vibe.

While the audio and layout are enjoyable, the graphics could be improved so I give the audio and graphics a 4.7/5.

A Fun Murder Mystery

The only, barely noticeable, drawbacks are on the app version of the game. The controls in maneuvering your character don't function completely smoothly, and it's a little difficult to click the buttons.

Also, the game isn't too addictive to which point you waste your whole day but does provide a pleasurable experience while playing it and can help you relax if you're having a stressful day.

Based on my experience playing this game, I would give it a 4.8/5. A 4.8 because there are still some things that could be improved, such as server improvements, adding more layouts, etc...

Conclusion

The game has found increased success through various media outlets such as Youtube and Twitch. It’s a fun enough game by yourself, but even more so when you play with friends.

As an overall rating for the game, I would give it a 4.8/5, and that rating will only increase considering there will be future improvements to the game.

Why you should you play Among Us

It is an entertaining science fiction/murder mystery game that’s easy and compelling to play and will make your day a little more fun.
