Fall Guys vs. Stumble Guys — who takes the crown? Fall Guys and Stumble Guys are eerily similar to one another, even in name, but there are some major differences between the two titles. With that said, let's pit Fall Guys vs. Stumble Guys and discuss the similarities and differences between these two trendy platformer battle royales.

Fall Guys Vs. Stumble Guys: Similarities

Price

Fall Guys and Stumble Guys are both completely free-to-play.

Fall Guys and Stumble Guys share the same basic gameplay formula: platform battle royales where you compete against other players online in minigames to be the last one standing. At their core, these two games are nearly identical in function.

Stages

Not only is the gameplay formula similar, Fall Guys and Stumble Guys share many of the same minigames. Fall Mountain and Cannon Climb, Hex-A-Gone and Honey Drop, Fall Ball and Stumble Soccer, and the list goes on. While Stumble Guys definitely has some original stages, it's clear at least a few were heavily inspired by Fall Guys.

Battle Pass And Cosmetics

While you can hop in and play both games for free, Fall Guys and Stumble Guys together feature Battle Passes and other microtransactions. Both titles do offer free rewards, but to get the top-of-the-line cosmetics, you'll have to shell out some money.

The cosmetics available in Fall Guys and Stumble Guys are also similar. Both games allow you to customise your character in all sorts of goofy outfits, emotes, and even victory animations.

Platforms

A key difference between Fall Guys and Stumble Guys is what platforms they are available on. Fall Guys is available on all consoles: PlayStation, Xbox, and Nintendo Switch — plus PC. Meanwhile, Stumble Guys is only available on PC and Mobile, with the large majority of the playerbase using Mobile. 

 

Match Length

Matches of Stumble Guys are quick and easy, while Fall Guys matches can feel drawn out in comparison. Stumble Guys features near-instant load times, and with only 32 players in a lobby, games go way faster. Fall Guys, on the other hand, typically sets 60 players against one another and wastes a lot of time between rounds cycling through loading screens and reward screens.  

Game Modes

Overall, Fall Guys is more developed than Stumble Guys, offering a far wider range of game modes and limited-time events. 

What Stumble Guys does offer that Fall Guys does not are in-game tournaments. This competitive game mode lets you test your skills against talented competition with huge prizes on the line.

Graphics

Since Stumble Guys is primarily a Mobile game, its graphics are clearly inferior to Fall Guys. Stumble Guys' graphics aren't necessarily per se, Fall Guys is simply more polished with more diverse settings for their stages.

Fall Guys was first, but Stumble Guys is a formidable competitor in the fight for best platformer battle royale. Each title has its pros and cons, but as far as which game is better, that's in the eye of the beholder.

One thing Stumble Guys certainly doesn't have is Fall Guys Master Chief.
