FAU-G has lastly launched on Android after months of delays. The sport went stay on Republic Day, January 26, and has already amassed over 1,000,000 downloads. FAU-G has been developed by nCore Video games, a studio primarily based in Bangalore and promoted by Bollywood actor Akshay Kumar, who was concerned within the improvement as nicely, and likewise got here up with the identify. With all that stated, how is the sport actually? We downloaded FAU-G on Android, and here’s what we thought of it.
There is not a number of content material in FAU-G. It options solely a single-player marketing campaign – for now – and has you play as Lt. Singh after his regiment will get ambushed by Chinese language opponents in Galwan Valley. The gameplay is kind of linear, that includes fist fights with teams of enemies that do not actually change a lot. There are melee weapons within the sport that enemies drop and you’ll choose up two at a time. And that is about all of the variation you possibly can anticipate from FAU-G. The brawler mechanics contain simply two buttons, ‘hit’ and ‘block’ and also you hardly ever want the latter. Alongside the best way, you may discover bonfires the place you possibly can regain well being, which is not potential in different components
It seems like you possibly can play via the marketing campaign by simply tapping a single button repeatedly. Oh, and there is a timer as nicely. The dialogue is repetitive and the graphics look fairly outdated for a sport that got here out in 2021. Nonetheless, it must be famous that nCore Games has stated that it’s going to launch a ‘Free for All’ and a 5v5 ‘Crew Deathmatch’ mode which ought to make FAU-G extra fascinating.
The sport does inform an authentic Indian story which was a part of the inspiration to make the sport, according to co-founder Vishal Gondal. However the sport might have featured much more, and the builders might have added issues like diversified transfer units that could possibly be unlocked, completely different enemies, parry mechanics, and different such brawler sport associated mechanics.
In its current state, the sport feels too brief and unfinished by way of the gameplay on supply. Hopefully, the deliberate updates will flesh out the sport sooner or later, however past that, it is laborious to say a lot about such a brief expertise. The builders made it clear from the beginning that regardless of the timing of its announcement, FAU-G was not meant as a alternative for PUBG Cell.
Having seen the sport now, it is clear that they needed to make one thing completely different and contemporary, and the group deserves credit score for that. Nonetheless, given the state of the sport as it’s right this moment, it might need been higher to make the announcement a bit later, when extra of the sport was truly prepared for gamers to strive. As of now, FAU-G would not actually supply a lot leisure for its 460+MB dimension on Android however with the addition of latest modes, the decision might change.
