OverviewOverview

Unspottable is a puzzle game where you try and work out which of the identical characters are controlled by other players and which are computers. It's a race to punch your friends before they punch you, but the more times you get it wrong the more likely you are to give away who you are.

It's a simple hide-and-seek premise that makes it fun for players of all abilities. The skill is not in reaction times or accuracy, but observing how the other players are moving to discern which character on the screen they are.

You can use the different environments to try different tactics to not getting spotted, as well as tempting other players to give themselves away. Sneak, mind-games and tricking the other players is all part of the challenge.

There are 15 environments that include a playground, a sushi bar, theatres and factories. Each one offers new ways to trick other players and new ways to blend in with the crowd. Different arenas have different rules as well, for instance in some levels the robots slowly run out of battery until only the players are left. There are also side quests on some levels where you also need to collect items for points. There are two rhythm levels where you need to follow the DJ's dance instructions so as not to stand out. In the Expert mode you can't see when a player has been punched, and controllers don't vibrate (so not to give that away) so you can pretend to still be in the round.
