Stumble Guys: Multiplayer Royale is an online game that was released on September 10th, 2020. The game was developed by Mediatonic and published by Devolver Digital. The game is currently only available on PC, although there are plans to release it on iOS and Android devices in the future. 

The plot of the game is simple: players are placed in an arena with up to 24 other players and must battle it out until only one player is left standing. The game is inspired by battle royale games such as Fortnite and PUBG, but with a twist: instead of being armed with guns and other weapons, players must use their wits and platforming skills to navigate the arena and take out their opponents. 

One of the unique features of Stumble Guys: Multiplayer Royale is its art style. The game is cartoonish and colorful, and the characters are all zany and unique. This gives the game a really lighthearted and fun feel, which is a refreshing change of pace from other battle royale games. 

Another unique feature of the game is its physics. Instead of feeling weightless and floaty like in most games, the characters in Stumble Guys: Multiplayer Royale feel like they have actual mass and weight. This makes the platforming sections of the game more challenging and engaging. 

The positive aspects of the game are its art style, its physics, and its overall sense of fun. The game is also quite challenging, which is sure to appeal to gamers who are looking for a more demanding experience. However, there are some negative aspects to the game as well. 

One of the biggest complaints about the game is its controls. The controls are not very responsive, and this can make the platforming sections of the game very frustrating. Additionally, the hit detection in the game is not very good, which can lead to some frustrating moments where you think you hit an opponent but they don't take any damage. 

Another issue with the game is that it is very gritty. In order to unlock new characters, you must first complete a certain number of matches. This can get very repetitive and tiresome after a while. 


Overall, Stumble Guys: Multiplayer Royale is a fun and challenging game that is unique in its art style and physics. However, the game is marred by some frustrating controls and a very gritty progression system.
