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 growth as effectively, and additionally 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 variety 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 sort of linear, that includes fist fights with teams of enemies that do not actually change a lot. There are melee weapons within the recreation that enemies drop and you’ll be able to choose up two at a time. And that is about all of the variation you’ll be able to anticipate from FAU-G. The brawler mechanics contain simply two buttons, ‘hit’ and ‘block’ and you hardly ever want the latter. Alongside the way in which, you will discover bonfires the place you’ll be able to regain well being, which is not doable in different components
It appears like you’ll be able to play via the marketing campaign by simply tapping a single button repeatedly. Oh, and there is a timer as effectively. The dialogue is repetitive and the graphics look fairly previous for a recreation that got here out in 2021. Nonetheless, it must be famous that nCore Video games has stated that it’s going to launch a ‘Free for All’ and a 5v5 ‘Staff 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, in accordance with co-founder Vishal Gondal. However the recreation might have featured much more, and the builders might have added issues like diversified transfer units that may very well be unlocked, totally different enemies, parry mechanics, and different such brawler recreation associated mechanics.
In its current state, the sport feels too quick and unfinished by way of the gameplay on provide. Hopefully, the deliberate updates will flesh out the sport sooner or later, however past that, it is arduous 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 substitute for PUBG Cellular.
Having seen the sport now, it is clear that they needed to make one thing totally different and contemporary, and the staff deserves credit score for that. Nonetheless, given the state of the sport as it’s in the present day, it may need been higher to make the announcement a little bit later, when extra of the sport was really prepared for gamers to strive. As of now, FAU-G would not actually provide a lot leisure for its 460+MB measurement on Android however with the addition of latest modes, the decision might change.
