While it’s not a new game, is the phenomenon of what we’ve been doing since Septemberso we’re going to explain how to play it, where you can download it and everything about this game.
Among Us is free and we can play both in games with friends and in open games with players from all over the world. It’s fun, fast and easySome of the possible keys to their great success.
What is Among Us and how to play
Among Us has a relatively simple mechanic: you’re in a spaceship with several players, and there are one or two impostors in between. While the players, from 4 to 10, go on small missions to maintain the ship, impostors can sabotage the ship itself or kill the other crew members.
The point here is that impostors must act without being discoveredwhile the rest of the members have to try and find out who these impostors are. In other words, we cannot go around killing left and right because, as soon as someone sees us, a vote will be taken to see who the murderer is and we will be thrown off the ship.
The mechanics are simple: the crew members do missions and the impostor tries to sabotage and kill them. When someone sees something strange, you have to try to find out who the impostor is
When the game starts we are inside the ship, with several missions to do and a small map that shows us the parts of the ship (in the different rooms there are different missions to do). When a crew member discovers a body he reports it, the game is temporarily halted and a vote is taken on who might have been the culprit to throw him off the ship.
If there was a tie in votes or we didn’t all discover the impostor, the game continues, with the remaining players doing missions and those who have died helping to do them. Impostors can also do missions to hide, and they can sneak through escape hatches. In case we are very clear about who the impostor is, even if there is no body, an emergency meeting can be called to force a vote.
The visual aspect of the game is casual and unpretentious, something that helps the game run on virtually any phone. The controls are also very simple, as you only have to move around by pressing the screen and interact with the small missions. When we kill someone the blood makes an appearancebut with the aesthetics of a cartoon, nothing excessively violent.
