PUBG Mobile is a mobile version of the multiplayer PC shooter Player Unknown's Battlegrounds (PUBG for short). In this free-to-play game, you play a combatant in a death match, dropped onto an abandoned island with up to 99 other players. You must scavenge weapons and equipment and fight to be the last man standing.
Bringing the action to the small screen
PUBG Mobile is a full-featured translation of the main game to mobile devices. The on-screen controls include two sticks to control movement as well as fire buttons on both sides of the screen and commands for switching between weapons. In keeping with the mobile platform, aiming has been simplified, and some aspects of looting have been made automatic: for instance, you automatically loot the bodies of fallen opponents of ammunition that fits the weapons you're carrying. For players used to the PC version, the movement and aiming controls of the mobile version will take some getting used to, and gamepad support isn't perfect.
Winner, winner, chicken dinner!
Despite the size and complexity of the game, PUBG Mobile succeeds in bringing the Battlegrounds experience to mobile platforms. It's a compelling challenge for competitive shooter fans.
