One game that has taken the community by storm in such a short period of time is Fall Guys. This multiplayer party game developed by Mediatonic has everything you could ask for.

There are unique challenges, utterly hilarious physics mechanics, and plenty of opportunities to compete with many others head to head. Oh, and there is also cheating. It happens with pretty much every popular multiplayer game today.

Select gamers try to manipulate the system in efforts of coming out on top in unfair ways. It seems like Fall Guys is no exception. That doesn’t mean the developer is just going to sit idly back and let this wave of cheating activity continue.

They are currently working to address the various complaints, which range from running faster to floating around obstacles. These tactics have ruined a lot of players’ experiences. They take away from what Fall Guys is supposed to provide: never-ending fun until only one character remains.

It’s reassuring to see the developer recognize that some users are not playing by the rules, even though Fall Guys doesn’t have a lot of them to begin with. Before anti-cheating systems are put in — though — users can expect cheating to get worse before it gets better.

Undoubtedly, the news of how to cheat will spread throughout the community and more users will get bold and try their luck. It seems like users are using some third-party software to hack the physics mechanics.

These cheating efforts could spread like wildfire so if you’re put off by cheating, you may want to hold off until the right systems are in place. There is no word on when these systems will be incorporated into the game, but it’s safe to assume they’ll be here within a couple of weeks.

Aside from the heavy presence of cheating, Fall Guys is an outstanding game. It just shows what a developer can do when they make a game’s main focus on providing fun and hilarious moments.

The rounds are different in how they play out, whether it’s a competitive race through obstacles or a quick mini-game. The main goal is to survive each round until one remains. It sounds like an impossible feat, but so many players have enjoyed the thrill of the chase and the fun action keeps them coming back for more.

If you haven’t checked it out yet, you’re in store for some memorable multiplayer experiences from start to finish.
