Fall Guys: Top 10 Tips To Get You The Win!

Fall Guys.

The one game that has taken the internet by storm since launching on the Playstation Store for FREE via their PS Plus Free Games Initiative during August 2020 (It’s available Now for £15.99 if you missed out!) and on Windows.

It’s been all over Twitter and Twitch got involved when famous streamer TimTheTatman struggled to get his win.

For those unaware, Fall Guys is a massive multiplayer party game that pits up to 60 online players in a free for all struggle though various rounds of crazy games which are either played in teams or as a lone ranger.

A bunch of people get eliminated on each game until the final round where only one winner remains.

Jump over a range of bizarre obstacles, avoid mental contraptions all designed to knock you on your ass. All at the same time with some incredible physics.

Just look at the cute way that they walk…..awwww.

Leave your dignity at the door because you won’t need it here. Be prepared to avoid rebels who try and push you off the edge, falling fruit and waving pendulums.

Fall in style all to grabbing that win. That illustrious win that not many achieve….

Fall Guys is ultimately the video game version of Takeshi’s Castle the amazing Japanese game show from the 80’s & 90’s and Narrated in the UK during the early 2000’s by Craig Charles. Health and Safety didn’t exist it seems during those times and boy did it make for some amazing TV. Amazingly allegedly not one person was injured or hurt during filming, but we’re not so sure ourselves…..If you’re too young to know what Takeshi’s castle is, you missed out on some incredible Tv, we urge you to check out some clips of it…after watching this video of course!

Without further ado here are our Top 10 ways to get the Dub!

Push people off

Use Right Trigger to your advantage and grab people, be a right mean bastard and push people off, it’s a great way to win and it looks funny too! Word of warning it is possible to fall off yourself whilst doing this so do it at your own risk! This is one of those situations where it’s annoying and very frustrating when it happens to you but when you do it to other people it’s hilarious! Though the first time it happened to me, I was like “OH MY GOD! He just pushed me off!” – then for some reason ended up in a fit of laughter! So it just depends on what type of gamer you are I guess……wonder how many controllers have been smashed as a result of this technique…..

Be rebellious

On team games it pays to be rebellious. Who said that cheats never proposer?! Pick on the team that has the least amount of eggs or balls and keep them at 0. No matter what your team has, you will always get through, as, well, there is nothing less than 0! This is a tried and tested technique and it is the easiest method to win on team games. Let your teammates to the hard work and you just focus on stopping the other team from completing their tasks. It’s sneaky but it’s a surefire way to win. Sure it’s annoying when it’s get done to you, but it works.

Don’t panic and take your time

Even if you are at the back of the pack you can still make it to the end in time.

Don’t panic!

Don’t Rush!

You can still make it to the end zone in time. Whilst the others are all rushing to get to the end zone, getting in each others way, making each other fall over or fall off the edge. This frees up space for you. Simply take your time and get to the end. Don’t rush. This is especially apparent on games that require great timing, such as Gate Crash and Whirly Gig. Wait for your moment and jump across, if you rush and put no thought in it you’ll just keep failing.

You know what they say, slow and steady wins the race.

Take Risks

Sometimes it’s good to take risks on Fall Guys, especially on levels that require jumping! Levels such as Tip Toe are perfect for just taking risks.

Tip Toe is the best example for this. Tip Toe is a level that consists of a bunch of squares which separate you from the goal. Walk across the wrong one and you fall to your demise. Walk across the correct one and it solidifies. With this level, the best way to get ahead is to simply leap right at the start, you’ll get it wrong a couple times but when you get it right you’ll be further ahead than the rest of the pack. Sure you may make the wrong move on the next go, but at least you know where to go on the next attempt.

Practice Makes Perfect

Practice makes perfect!

Yes, even that applies to Fall Guys, the more you play the better you get. As you are able to work out the best ways to complete the games in the fastest manner possible! You know what’s coming and you know how to tackle the obstacles coming your way. The more you play the quicker you’ll get to the end. There’s been a recent update which will change the levels up a bit on each attempt, but even then it just requires you to play more so when the variation appears again you know how to tackle it.

Use the swings to give you a boost

Use the swings or the bars on levels such as Whirly Gig and other game modes to help give you a boost and YEET you across the map. It may take a couple attempts for you to get hit at the right time and at the right angle, but once you know where to stand you’ll be ahead in no time! That being said, do it wrong and you’ll keep getting pushed back, I know we said that being at the back isn’t necessarily a bad thing, but get knocked back too many times and you’re going to be left in the dust! Sometimes these things that are designed to punish you in fact give you a little help!

Dive rather than jump

Diving rather than jumping on various levels help to negate the chances of you falling over and losing precious time! Your dude isn’t the most balanced of creatures, so is prone to falling over a lot, if you dive just before you fall over too, you’ll be able to get up quicker. Jumping whilst it gets you to where you need to be, will occasionally cause your guy to fall over and lose precious time. This diving method is especially helpful on levels like Door Dash, Whirly Gig and Gate Crash! Diving gets you further and helps with balance, what’s not to like!

Use the sides

On games such as Slime Climb, Fruit Shute and hit parade, there is slime and revolving walkways which are designed to slow you down and frustrate you. The best way to get across these and to the end is to use the sides. This way your character is able to walk across them easier, quicker and a lot safer from elimination or falling off the edge! It seems to work and we don’t know why, but going through the middle is a lot more dangerous and a slower method!

See Saw – Walk rather than jump

See Saw is a difficult game at the best of times…..does no one know how to use a See Saw?! But the best way to get through on See Saw, in our opinion is to walk off the See Saw’s instead of jumping off. This method links to our diving and not jumping tip, your dude isn’t the most balanced and if you jump you’re putting yourself at a disservice as he’ll just fall over and roll to the end of the see saw and off into the abyss. Walking off each one is much safer and will provide you with a clean walk towards the end as you don’t lose as much balance!


…& finally winning on Fall Guys is luck. Of course, there is skill involved but also a lot of luck also is at play here. The stars have to align and things have to go your way to get the dub. You could also argue that you make your own luck at that is also true.

But we’d say that getting the win can also be down to luck.

So go out there and keep all these tips in mind and have fun! That’s what games are all about and Fall Guys is definitely an embodiment of that. Get out there and chase that crown!

We recommend collecting all the costumes that are available to you, at the end of each round you get some credits that you can use to customise your fall guy.

You want to win whilst looking good right!

Top 5 Facts About Online Gaming

Since the first video game was released in 1958, the popularity of online gaming has rapidly increased. A million-dollar industry, it has developed into a staple of modern culture. 


There are many reasons as to why people play video games. From escapism to gaining a sense of community, it opens up a gamer’s imagination to a world beyond anything they have ever imagined. However, as with online casino games such as those offered by eurocasino casino, it’s important to know when to stop and put down the controller. 


A fascinating industry in itself, there are many amazing statistics and facts related to it. If you’re interested in the world of online gaming, here are the top five facts to dig your teeth into!



  • The Most Expensive Game Ever Made Was Grand Theft Auto: V


Grand Theft Auto has to be one of the world’s most famous video games. And its fifth edition is to date, the most expensive to be created. Costing over $265 million, Rockstar North spent roughly equal on the creation and the marketing. However, even though this figure seems crazy, the amount of money that the developer has earned back from its sale has no doubt made it worth it. 

The second most expensive video game is Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2, which comes in at $250 million – with $50 million spent on development and $200 million on marketing.


  • There Are More Women Gamers 


Often, people think that video games are only played by men. Well, they couldn’t be more wrong. Over the years, the market has heavily diversified to introduce an impressive 48% of female video game players. With more women now identifying as gamers over men, it’s clear that the industry is continuously changing.


  • Online Gaming Improves Concentration and Decision Making


People often associate online gaming with a lack of concentration. But the complexity of video games means that gamers tend to have better decision-making skills, have an exceptional attention span and can multitask when need be. Having the determination to work out each game and the tasks set by it requires a certain type of mind.



  • Over 50% of Gamers Are Over 50


Continuing on from the discussion above, another clear sign that the industry is ever-changing is that it is now heavily populated by those over the age of 50. Holding an incredible 58% across all of the social online games, this new audience is swiftly taking over. This boom can be seen at online tournaments, such as the e-sports show that recently played host to a team of over 60s called ‘The Silver Snipers’.


  • The Chinese Video Market is The Biggest


It might come as a surprise (or not) but the Chinese Market makes the most revenue. An ever-growing industry, in 2018 Chinese consumers spent over $38 billion on video games – which makes them hold an incredible 28% market share. Within this statistic, they spent $23 billion on mobile games and $15 billion on console and PC games. 

Skyfront VR

Skyfront VR: Find out who the peacekeepers are!

Skyfront VR: Who’s the champ

Skyfront VR, it’s time to decide who really is the best shooter around.

We  love virtual reality and feel as though it’s the next best thing for gaming. (Whilst also the most logical step in next generation gameplay) There are an array of great games currently available for the various VR systems out there. However, one caught our eye recently. Skyfront VR. A team based multiplayer shooting game that’s set in the future!

An idyllic future (2300) at that and all of your favourite city’s and landmarks were once a war zone. In AD 2700, society is now rebuilt and thriving after a terrible few hundred years. A zero-gravity battle arena is formed to prevent this from happening again. Teams take each other on to determine who are the best in town. What Skyfront are calling ‘The Final War’ it is up to you as a team to help determine who are the ‘Guardians’ – otherwise known as ‘Keepers of the Peace’ To find out who exactly are the peace keepers, a challenge was set. A battle, if you will. ‘The Skyfront Tournament’ is that challenge where players take on each other to preserve the memory of a violent past.

Skyfront VR: Gameplay

While the story is a lot of fun and one of the most original we have seen. Most of all the gameplay is incredible. The movement mechanics take advantage of the characteristics of your VR motion controllers. So, for example, move your wrist left and aim the controller sideways, the hand/gun mimic this behaviour. Paving the way for one of the most innovative and immersive gaming controllers that we have ever seen. Plus the game is incredibly fast paced, you can get hit from any angle so it’s a good idea to keep your witts about you! Plus don’t forget the arena is zero gravity, which adds another layer of uniqueness to this truly amazing game.

Most of all, and those who suffer from motion sickness will like this. The game developers are claiming that it’s nausea free!

We have to say we haven’t experienced any yet!
