Among us is a world-known multiplayer social deduction video game. It first launched in 2018 but became truly popular in 2020. The developer of the game is InnerSloth. Among Us is like the game of “Mafia” but in space.

Graphics and Sound 8/10

The graphics of one of the most popular games right now are not what you’d expect. They are very simple. But the 2D format with its cartoony aesthetic has some indie game charm. The graphics and animation of the game have the atmosphere of the mid-2000s games and we find it pretty nostalgic.

The sound of the game corresponds with the graphics and is too very minimal. You can hear a variety of beeps or boops while interacting with different stations. The sound of tour footsteps will also change when you’ll walk on different surfaces.

Controls 9/10

The controls of the game are quite simple. One tap is to interact with an object, two taps are to activate it. It is extremely easy to get used to it. you don’t need any special skills to play Among Us at all. All you need is to click on some buttons and to think critically.

Gameplay 10/10

A small group of astronauts (4-10 people) got into trouble: the spaceship is broken and the are plenty of tasks that need to be done. However, there are some imposters on the ship. So if you are the normal peaceful astronaut, you have to do some tasks around the ship. Also, don’t forget that there are some imposters around, so you should pay attention to every other player. And if you are an imposter, you have to pretend to do some tasks as well as peaceful astronauts and murder them without causing any suspicion.

Lasting Appeal 8/10

After playing the same game with the same people you’re most likely to get bored at some point. If you already know everybody on your team too well and can say when the person is lying immediately, it won’t be interesting to play. But you can always play with some other team. It can be your friends or just some random people online.

Final Thoughts

Playing Among Us is definitely a pastime you won’t regret. The atmosphere of the game is amazing and playing it with your friends is very fun. It is pretty addictive too: once you get used to being suspicious about every character and guessing who the imposter is, it’s hard to stop!

Pros:
  • Nostalgic 2D graphics
  • Easy to play
  • Lots of customization options
Cons:
  • Lots of cheaters
  • No voice-chat
