Stumble Guys Vs Fall Guys



It must’ve been a real stinger, Mediatonic having to sit idly by and watch as Fall Guys succumbed to the immensely popular, and let’s face it, total rip-off IP, Stumble Guys. But it happened, and the feud that it has caused as a result has only brought fans of both series to the same question: which one is better? And while you could easily argue over which one hosts the wider demographic, the fact still remains: Stumble Guys and Fall Guys are both as equally fit for the throne as any other two warring factions of another genre altogether.

Wherever it is you stand on the front, that burning question is still just as present in 2023 as it was a couple of years back. So, to cut to the chase and find a definitive answer, we thought we’d unpack both titles and locate the root of their joint success. Interested in joining us for the ride? Here’s everything you need to know about the two rivals, and of course, the IP that brings the most to the table.

What Is Fall Guys?

Tips for Beginners

Fall Guys, just on the off chance that you’ve yet to fully immerse yourself in its chaotic world, is a multi-tiered party game. It’s a free-to-play game, too, which alone makes it one of the most commercially popular IPs of its kind. The only drawback to this, rather annoyingly, is that it isn’t available on mobile. But as luck would have it, there is another option, and one that ticks all the same boxes. And in case you haven’t guessed it yet, we’re talking about Stumble Guys. But more on that shortly.

Going back to what we mentioned earlier, about Fall Guys being a multi-tiered party type of gig; it’s a 60-player battle royale game, and one that brings the best of platforming with a boatload of wacky physics-based action. Its premise is simple: be the last guy standing. How do you go about securing your place on the podium, exactly? Why, by scooting your opponents over the edge of a Total Wipeout-like arena, of course.

It goes without saying that Fall Guys, as much as it attempts to come into its own with its jellybean-type characters, is really just Takeshi’s Castle in a candy-encrusted skin. Nevertheless, it’s arguably one of the most entertaining party-starting hits on the modern market. And with the full support of Epic Games under its belt since 2021, it’s safe to say that it’ll be around for quite some time — even with the weight of Stumble Guys slumping down on its shoulders. Speak of the devil…

What Is Stumble Guys?

Stumble Guys, much like its opponent, is a candy-coated 32-player battle royale game that draws the majority of its inspiration from the likes of Total Wipeout and It’s a Knockout. In a similar vein to Fall Guys, the overall focus is on a last player standing type of scenario, in which the victor is crowned by surviving the chaos that ties in with its various obstacle courses and mini-games.

Like Fall Guys, characters in Stumble Guys can be kitted out with various cosmetics. There’s also a slew of seasonal patches and events that roll out on a regular basis — again, like Fall Guys, only with fewer prominent crossovers to flesh out its roster. Needless to say that, for a mobile clone with fewer featured icons and a slightly rougher design, it’s still one of the best alternatives on the market. But is it the all-round better choice? Well…


If you was to take a gander at both Fall Guys and Stumble Guys from a bird’s-eye view, then you’d likely suffer from an intense case of deja vu. Both battle royale games with a habit of leaning on their game show influences, anyone could quite easily see why the two are often placed in the same bucket. And honestly, that doesn’t help our case in the slightest, as on paper, both games are basically the same, only with the odd crossover or cosmetic to separate the bond.

It’s a tough one to call, as both games share a similar amount of mini-games; the inflatable arena and soccer modes, being the go-to choices for both sides. When all’s said and done, though, with each game boasting an equal amount of dynamic levels and seasonal content, it mainly boils down to each player’s preference of platform. If it’s the textbook console copy you’re after, then there’s honestly no shying away from Fall Guys. Stumble Guys, on the other hand, is slightly more convenient, as it brings an almost identical experience to a much smaller vessel, i.e Android and iOS. So again, it all boils down to preference of platform.


As much of a cop-out answer as it is, the simple truth is, those who adore the competitiveness and the wacky aesthetics of Fall Guys are bound to find all the same qualities to love in Stumble Guys. It’s as simple as that, and it’s almost surprising to see exactly how far the latter was able to get without having to endure countless lawsuits and backhanded accusations from the former. Needless to say that, with both names now having an established player base and reputation, what’s done is done, and no amount of effort from either side of the fence is likely to change the future for the other. So, seeing as it’s a leveled playing field that we’re hawking over, there’s no use in favoring one particular team.

Having said all that, both Fall Guys and Stumble Guys have certain aspects that separate themselves from the same gene pool. The fact that Stumble Guys is available to play on mobile, though, is what makes it the more accessible of the two. Sure, it allows less players into the lobby, and therefore misses out on the full pandemonium that Fall Guys conjures without fail, but it’s also equally as fast-paced and competitive.

Anyway, unless you’ve a habit of streaming your games through the Cloud, there’s no reason why you should knock Stumble Guys before you try it. If, however, you’re an avid console or PC gamer and prefer to utilize a wider array of functions, then definitely stick with Fall Guys. There’s no right or wrong answer, to be fair, but more the preference of which platform suits the user in question. Either way, you’re in for a great time.
