Among Us is a game for Android (and maybe Apple) that simulates a classic and retro style of space themed murder mystery using simplistic and classic graphics, an online connection and a reoccurring theme of mystery.



While the game is rated a PEGI 16, I’d say this is unfair as the most graphical thing is the animation deaths, and even so they’re no more than equal to the violence portrayed in old cartoons, like Tom & Jerry and Bugs Bunny.

You’re given a randomised role between innocent and “Impostor”, a role of whom has a main objective of attempting to prevent a space ship from launching, by either causing a system malfunction or killing the other crew members. When a body is found, or when a meeting is summoned, everyone can vote on someone to kick out the ship, and if that person is the Impostor, the innocents win. As an innocent, your job is to catch the Impostor and complete various jobs around the ship, such as fixing wires or shooting asteroids.

Review
The graphics in this game are what make the experience to classic. It gives a feeling of mobile gaming in its earliest days, with low-quality graphics and simplistic mechanics. Controls are simple and easy to get used to, with only two buttons and a joystick/touch, and the overall gameplay is addicting.

Overall, I’d rate it 10/10.
