2D puzzle-platformers can quickly grow stale for me. Unless there’s an innovative mechanic or engaging story, most games in the genre lose my attention.

Despite originally coming out in 2018, it seemed everyone was playing Among Us last fall. Players clearly loved the cooperative Clue-like murderous debauchery, and other developers want a piece of that same success. Invisible Walls’s First Class Trouble now arrives to capitalize on Among Us fans who, A: are looking for a new entry in the same genre, B: didn’t love the new airship level, or C: just want more backstabbing treachery. Though certain aspects could be retouched, First Class Trouble has potential to be the next friendship-ending party game.
