The game is set in an urban environment where players control gelatinous characters and fight each other using various improvised weapons. In the game, two to four players control gelatinous creatures in a fight to the death in a variety of settings

Gameplay

Gang Beasts is a party game that can be played by up to 8 players. The objective of the game is to either fight the other players until they are knocked out or to force them off the map. The game is played in a series of rounds, and the player with the most points at the end of the game wins.

There are a variety of stages, each with its own hazards and obstacles. Players are able to pick up and throw objects around the stage, as well as punch and kick other players. The controls are very basic, with only a few buttons used.

There are two main game modes, brawl mode and versus mode. In brawl mode, players are free to attack each other however they like, and the last player standing is the winner. In versus mode, players are split into two teams and must try to either knock out the other team or force them off the map.
