It is a survival game wherein the player needs to find and kill the fake villagers at the same time pose to be a normal villager so that no other player attacks you.
How do you know who is the fake villager? The villagers who look down or up, or walk backwards or sidewards, or run or jump unnecessarily are supposedly the ones who are the fake villagers. You need to spot them and kill them and survive till the end.
While playing the game, you can collect weapons such as smoke bombs and advanced swords, bows and arrows. You can also collect power-ups in the form of bacons that will help you regain your energy. There is yet another special weapon known as the revealer that will help reveal the players from the villagers for about three seconds.
When you kill the opponents or the fake villagers, you not only receive points but also extra smoke bombs and an extra heart — extra heart means extra lives. So you keep going until you are the last man standing, of course unless you get killed.
The only strategy that you need to follow in this game is to hide, which suggests that you pretend to be a legitimate villager. If your opponent find out then turn invisible and run. Spot the suspicious villagers and kill them. Last but not the least, don’t forget to collect power-ups.
