Totally Accurate Battle Simulator, but It's a Battle Royale!

Totally Accurate Battle Simulator is a neat and fun indie game that is fun when you have nothing to play.

But, kids these days like games that are like Fortnite and PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds, a trend that a lot of developers are starting to jump on - including Landfall, the developers of TABS.

And so, as an April Fools' joke, they released Totally Accurate Battlegrounds. Is it good? Let's find out.

How Does it Play?

TABG is a first-person battle royale game. You jump out of a convoy of flying trucks (?) and fight in an arena against around 30 to 40 opponents. You scavenge the world, looking for weapons, armour and ammo for your weapon. Without a weapon, you are able to move, jump and duck. While holding a weapon, you are able to do all of the things listed before, together with aiming and shooting.

It plays just like PUBG, if it weren't for it's, let's call it, "unique" physics. They're really funny. Since it is an Early Access title for now, it has a lot of bugs, thanks to it's physics, but as I said, the physics are really funny - if you jump, you may see your head, your limbs start moving like tentacles until you hit the ground again.

Character Customization

Unlike in games like PUBG or Fortnite, TABG offers a variety of wearable items right from the beginning - all you have to do it is choose. It has no in-game shop or currency - it's completely microtransaction free! All you have to do is pay the listed price, which is currently $4,99, and you get access to the entirety of the game.

There's also an easter egg that I found while wearing the Adidas-like tracksuit.and the Adidas-like pants - when you press B on your keyboard, you enter "Gangster mode! and the slav anthem - Three Stripes - starts playing. It's a fun Easter Egg if you're a fan of memes like me.

Available Modes

TABG currently has 3 modes: Solo, Squad and Shooting Range.

Solo, is, as it's name suggests, is your regular Battle Royale where everyone is against everyone.

Squads is a mode in which 2-4 people team up to destroy the other teams. You are able to revive people from your squad, but other than that, it plays just like Solo.

Shooting Range is a training mode in which you have access to all of the weapons and you get to shoot dummies. This mode is great if you need to practice your aiming and reloading skills, since there is no way to set auto-reload yet.

That's Cool and All, but Where's the Negative Stuff?

Okay, you're right. This game isn't perfect. There are still a lot of bugs and glitches (It IS an Early Access game, after all!).

The game will also sometimes drop you into a completely empty game and it takes quite a lot of time until people start showing up in the game - it's best if you leave the game and find another one.

There is also no option to fill in teammates during Squads games, which kind of sucks.

It is still a playable game, however - it has a solid foundation and that's what matters.

So, how good is this game?

4 stars for Totally Accurate Battlegrounds

This game is fun and addictive. It's best to play it with friends with voice chat (Which I don't have, unfortunately.)

Even if you don't have friends (Same, buddy. Same.) it's a cheaper and preferable alternative to PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds.
