Human: Fall Flat is a quirky, open-ended physics-based puzzle and exploration game set in floating dreamscapes. Your goal is to escape these surreal dreams by solving puzzles with nothing but your wits and physics. You play as Bob, the wobbly Human hero who keeps dreaming about surreal places filled with puzzles in which he’s yet to find the exit. These puzzles have multiple solutions and will challenge your creativity, exploration and ingenuity are key and every option is welcome...

Review imageHuman: Fall Flat has been updated to provide 8-player online multiplayer as an added bonus to those who bought the game previously. For those not familiar with the game (which was originally released earlier this year - May 2018, for the Xbox One) it's a physics-based puzzle platformer that sees you guiding your character Bob, the featureless blob-like humanoid, through numerous levels and puzzles.

It starts easily enough with you having to waddle (Bob doesn't really walk all that well) around your environment, find the exit door and press a button to move to the next level. But as you progress to the next environment, each exit becomes harder to reach and the solution of how to get out become more problematic.

As a single player game it's fun, but challenging, but as an online multiplayer experience it can be hilarious. Here you can create or join public or private lobbies with up to 7 other gamers. Just watching everyone's Bobs trying to navigate the environment is amusing enough, but why not try throwing each other around for more fun...? Or you could try and play the co-op levels properly... but where's the fun in that

Review imageYou can also customise your Bob so that he/she looks different from the other Bobs out there.

For those that already own the game, this free update will be welcomed as it basically turns the game into something else altogether. You'll spend many happy hours rolling around onscreen, while you're rolling around your room holding your sides laughing.
