PUBG (Player Unknown’s Battlegrounds) is a first-person shooter, battle to the death game. Players require good co-ordination, strategic planning and fine motor ability. Because of recurrent graphic violence and social/online connectivity this game is not suitable for anyone under the age of 18.
Player Unknown’s Battlegrounds (PUBG) lit the world enthusiastic in 2017. It sold millions earlier than it even left early access on Steam, and finished the battle royal gaming trend we’re experiencing currently.
PUBG Game Concept
PUBG is an extremely violent and graphic game and the principle of this game is basically: kill or be killed. It has an easy concept with plenty of room for complexity. Player lands on an island with other 99 people and only your fists. Player has to find a gun and stay in the circle and last one standing wins.
Parents necessitate being aware to that in this game the communication between players is possible, not just through messaging but through the devices microphone also. It allows the players to talk with each other in real time (however, this is optional and needs to be switched on by the player). Players can also sign in to this game through Facebook.
PUBG Game Play
Players start the game by parachuting from an airplane, onto an island. After landing on ground, they must rapidly find guns, ammunition, helmets, bullet proof vests etc, by looting abandoned houses and sheds. This allows the player to engage in fight with other online players.
Movement and direction is attained by coordinating the virtual joy stick (left) and swiping (right). Other movements are attained through corresponding buttons (jump, crouch, aim guns etc).
Mission & Aim
The aim of this game is to outlive the other 99 players on the island and to be the last person standing alike in concept to the movie “Hunger Games”. Players also have to move on the island in accordance to the zoned region.
A circle which goes beyond the island and steadily shrinks which make certain that players cannot remain hiding on the outer edges. Being jammed outside of the zone for too long will ultimately kill the player.

As the principle of this game is basically: kill or be killed which is mostly achieved through gun fire. On the other hand, you can also run players over in cars, attack them with frying pans and sickles and blow them up with grenades. Generally, attacks result in blood splatter.
This game has different modes of play which include: Solo, Duo, Squad and 1 vs Squad. Four players can play as a team in Squad mode and when a team member gets shot (although does not die) he/she fall to the ground and can only crawl, other team members can revive them.
But if other players are too busy in defending themselves, the downed team mate is often finished off when the enemy arrives close and shoots them in the head.
The Mobile version of PUBG has virtually all the features of its PC counterpart, with a small number of exceptions. The game only offers PUBG’s original map, Erangel — an abandoned, unclearly Eastern European 8km x 8km island. From the abandoned military base to the burned out nuclear power plant everything from the PC version of this map has made it to the Mobile version of the game.
When PUBG first launched early access are here, all the weapons, gear, and vehicles vacant too. The guns it is added since are not present, as is the game’s second map, Miramar.
The game is completely free and you can login as either a guest or with Facebook to play. Daily login and gameplay rewards will earn battle points and your account experience, which can be spent on crates which contain a random piece of clothing for your character. Unlike in the PC version, you do not begin with any available clothing, but getting at least a pair of pants does not take too long, getting crates is pretty quick.
Chatroom & Matchmaking
The matchmaking works pretty fast when queuing in squad, duo, or solo mode, although many of the options from the PC version are missing. Creating a private custom match does not appear to be possible just yet. There is a menu option for forming a “room”, but it appears to be for creating chat rooms, and also does not seem to actually work until now.
I never had to wait long to be matched with a squad, although connection problems were very common. Almost every team I played with had at least one player disconnect at the outset of the game.
PUBG has built-in voice chat, which works, however it feels like many players just use their phone’s speaker for a mic. If the mic is on the bottom of the cell phone, as it is common, it can lead to some very annoying extra noise when players’ palms rub against it.
