Human: Fall Flat Review: Learning to Walk Again

Human: Flat Fall is an unusual physical puzzle, with a baby-like ragdoll character assigned to solve puzzles on a dangerous playground. Level by level you go through nontrivial missions to complete with your mind and your hands. You can download Human: Flat Fall for PC or another console and try it yourself.

Ragdoll World

It looks like a scene from a kid’s dream like they show it in cartoons. Pieces of toy kingdom, with castles, elevators and trains, fountains and windmills, and other wonderful scenes one can imagine. And there’s no one around: just you. Your character seems boneless, fragile and weak, but you must know: your powers are enough to do anything here. Just control your moves. If you fall down, you’ll return onto the same platform, reincarnating until you complete your mission.

You have just fallen from above onto this ground made for fun, and the game you’re playing is exploration and escaping. This little world of marble and electronics, clouds and castles can be extended and turned into some European fairytale of XIX century, full of mechanics and magic at the same time.

Beautiful Like You’re a Kid

The way the game is designed reminds of very big and expensive toy castles. Clean, with refined lines, snowy white and antiquely beautiful, with no rubbish and no dust – the world is your big automatized playground. All you need to do is control it right.

It’s too correct and clean to be realistic. Platforms floating in the clouds, all made for fun and pleasure, with their special sort of toy beauty. And yes, it’s 3D and almost fully interactive. You can climb up stairs unless they’re too steep. You fall down if you can’t keep the balance. You cannot move an item if it’s fixed, but a wagon on rails is rather easy to drag.

You can also select your appearance: from a plain white ragdoll to a princess, a pilot, or an animal. There is a built-in master to help you with that.

It’s even greater pleasure when you have someone to share it with. Then your experience from a childish wonderland turns into Hollywood adventure. You’ll need to leap from level to level, start and control machinery that requires coordinated efforts, and do together what one never can. That’s where you’ll really need your appearance customized to tell yourself from the rest of the party.

We should also praise the music in the game. Light and dreamy, it floats like a feather on a cloud, hard to tell one from the other. The album can be bought separately on Steam.

Learn to Move

The essence of the game is making your character move the way you want him (or her, as it’s perfectly uni). To walk along you use the conventional WASD, to fall to the ground you need to press T, and the camera moves with the mouse. The most interesting part is controlling the arms: to rise each one you need to press the left or the right mouse button. As you release the button, the arm drops.

This simple mechanism allows you to push elevator buttons, drag trains, and do even more complicated things. It’s even more efficient when you’re not alone: with one local partner, or up to seven online ones, you can do much more.

Human: Fall Flat for PC partly supports gamepads, but when we tried a generic one (neither Sony nor Microsoft), we could only move the character, but not the camera, so we had to use a mouse along with it. If you prefer feeling that vibrating artificial connector in your hands, you better play Human: Fall Flat for Xbox or Human: Fall Flat for PS4. Each of these consoles provides about the same features with HFF.

Sometimes one character is not enough to solve the problem (in fact, one is always enough in single player, but it’s more fun with a multiplayer party). So the game supports local multiplayer with two gamepads (remember, they should be Steam-compatible!) and online multiplayer with up to 8 players. Multiplayer, both local and online, is available both on PC and consoles.

What’s The Pleasure?

Enjoying your moves is an art (there’s more to it than some might think), and Human: Fall Flat game is here to remind you of that. This game is a dreamy, beautiful, elaborate version of any physical puzzle one can imagine, from escape room quests to Sokoban. And with all its hermetic fairytale feel, the game requires quite an adult logic and insistence in solving the most complicated puzzles. Even making out the entire power of controls is a sort of puzzle.

This unusual, dreamy and brain-training experience is reasonably priced and doesn’t require much space. So you can download Human: Fall Flat for PC, Xbox 360 or PS4 even now. It’s been first released in May, 2017, so the developers had enough time to fix all the glitches that could have been there, and now it’s as smooth as your ragdoll incarnation in it.

But the game still gets updates. For example, in April 2019 it received an update featuring the first Dark level, throwing you into the nighttime. There’s never been such an experience before, so this Human: Fall Flat review may soon get obsolete due to lots of innovations.
