Killer Klowns From Outer Space: The Game Review

Killer Klowns From Outer Space: The Game

You know, it’s really just a matter of time before IllFonic nails that perfect asymmetrical multiplayer vibe.

Sure, people have had mixed feelings about their past games, but each one has been like a little experiment, adding clever twists and learning more about what makes us love this genre.

Their latest, Killer Klowns From Outer Space: The Game, really brings all this goodness together, making it one of their best yet!

So, what’s the scoop?

The game features seven humans (Players) racing against the clock to find an escape route, grabbing all the needed bits and bobs—like a gas can and spark plug for a motorboat—while dodging three wacky Klowns.

These Klowns, with their sinister giggles and popcorn-spewing guns, are hunting them down in what starts as a tense situation and soon spirals into delightful chaos.

Now, if you’ve played games like this, the basics are familiar.

But here’s the fun part: it’s all about balance.

Humans scavenge for weapons, tools (like a handy compass showing exits), and items to boost health and stamina.

They’re small and quick, able to sneak through windows and hide after losing a Klown’s sight.

Sometimes, a brave human might take on a Klown alone, but teamwork really shines in this game.

The Klowns are a whole different ball game.

They’re tougher, have cool powers, and a ticking clock in their favor—if humans don’t escape in 15 minutes, it’s Klownpocalypse time!

Instead of just killing the humans, Klowns can zap them into cotton candy cocoons and hook them to generators, making for an early win.

It’s this tug-of-war that makes the game thrilling. Klowns block exits with cotton candy, humans try to stay quiet to avoid detection, and if you’re caught, death isn’t always the end—there’s a resurrection machine to bring teammates back.

This keeps the matches exciting and fair, with no role being too overpowered.

And oh, the mechanics!

Klowns can use silly but effective tools, like invisible cars and balloon dogs to track humans.

Meanwhile, humans get their hearts racing with last-minute escapes and intense face-offs with Klowns.

It’s all wrapped up in a fun, ‘80s aesthetic with vibrant maps and characters that look like they stepped right out of the movie.

Of course, it’s not all sunshine and rainbows.

There are some bugs—glitches with objectives, occasional crashes, and such. But IllFonic is on it, promising fixes for these pesky issues.

Despite these hiccups, the game is a blast, and the bugs didn’t ruin the fun for me (though losing my cosmetic unlocks was a bummer).

In its current state, Killer Klowns From Outer Space: The Game is a solid choice for anyone who loves asymmetrical multiplayer games. Its balanced mechanics, quirky humor, and respect for the original movie make it a standout.

If IllFonic smooths out the bugs and keeps adding great content, this game could easily become a genre favorite.

So grab your popcorn (maybe not the deadly kind) and dive into the wild, wacky world of Killer Klowns—you’re in for a treat!
