Am I The Baddie? Review

OverviewOverview

Am I The Baddie? is a running and collecting game of hide and seek. You control a character on a simple maze of streets. Up to five people compete on separate devices or computers. One person is the baddie who tries to collect the clues without being touch by the others. The other players can't see the baddie apart from then they collect a clue, and must track them down to catch them.

Play is like Luigi's Ghost Mansion in Nintendo Land, with a little bit of Pac-Man and Among us thrown in. Each game, a randomly-selected player is the baddie. If you are the baddie you need to develop strategies to get the clues and then move away before you are caught. If you are the catchers you need to communicate to work together and catch the baddie with pincer tactics.

There are four themes: grassy, night-time, desert, and snow. There are three maps. And a virtually infinite number of layouts. We especially love the night-time, with glowing windows and working chimneys in the cozy town.

The result is a family-friendly game for all ages and everybody from kids to grown-ups.

AccessibilityAccessibility

You can play in single player as a practice mode against computer characters that slowly improve as you win.

The game is easy to navigate with its bright maps, and the clues you need to find are outlined and move to offer a visual indication of where to go next. The clues you need to collect have a bright outline.

When you collect a clue there's an audio note to indicate this. If you are one of the chasers you get a sound to indicate the baddie player is temporarily visible. You can't adjust audio levels, but there are only sound effects in the game.
