Fall Guys Clone Stumble Guys Has Taken Over Mobile Gaming Charts
There’s a Fall Guys knock off available now on mobile that might just be an even bigger success than Fall Guys ever was. It’s called Stumble Guys, and it comes from a team of five developers at Finnish studio Kitka Games.
According to data from Appmagic (via VGC), Stumble Guys has been downloaded 163 million times since its soft launch in October 2020, and has generated over $21 million in lifetime sales. It’s currently number one on the iPhone free-to-play charts in the US and UK, and it's in the top 10 for the Google Play free-to-play charts in both countries.
As the name suggests, Stumble Guys follows the same general format as Fall Guys. Up to 32 players are whittled down to just one after a series of knockout party games. Most of them appear to be races on obstacle courses full of slides, bumpers, cannons, trampolines, and more, while a few levels are about surviving on platforms for as long as possible.
Stumble Guys and Fall Guys both came out around the same time, but Fall Guys hit PC and PS4 to start while Stumble Guys launched on PC and mobile. It’s the mobile sales that have really taken off for Stumble Guys in recent months as downloads have skyrocketed in 2022. In January, Stumble Guys was downloaded almost 9 million times, but that almost reached 33 million in June. The game was downloaded 1.5 million times on June 25 alone. And all those downloads have led to $6.6 million in microtransaction spending last month.
Kitka says Stumble Guys averages around 18 million players per day, which is significantly more than Fall Guys even after it went free-to-play in June. Fall Guys has also expanded to the Nintendo Switch, PS5, and Xbox Series X|S, but it was removed from Steam in favor of the Epic Games Store. Previous Steam owners can still play Fall Guys on Valve’s platform, but new players will have to buy the PC version on Epic.
