Garena Free Fire, also known as Free Fire, is a battle royale game, developed by Garena and published by Garena for Android and iOS. It became the most downloaded mobile game globally in 2019. The game received the award for the “Best Popular Vote Game” by the Google Play Store in 2019.
When players join a game, they will enter a plane, which will fly over the island. While the plane is flying over the island, the players can jump where they want, thus allowing them to choose a strategic place to land away from enemies. After landing, the players must then go looking for weapons and utility items. Medical equipment, medium and large weapons, grenades, and other items featured can be found throughout the island.
The ultimate goal of the players is to survive on the island with a maximum of 50 players online; this requires eliminating all opponents the players encounter along the way and ensuring that they are the only survivor remaining. The available safe area of the game’s map decreases in size over time, directing the surviving players into tighter areas to force encounters. The last player or team standing wins the round. The graphics were described as having “a benefit for mid and low specification phones”, but a reviewer stated that “if games with good graphics are your thing then we don’t recommend that you play Free Fire Battlegrounds. But if you like battle royale games and want to have fun with your friends, you should definitely play.
