The Government of India has banned 118 Chinese apps on September 2 which includes the popular multiplayer game PUBG. Now right after the ban, we saw Akshay Kumar flaunting the new FAU-G- the desi PUBG rival. However, scouring through the Google Play Store one can see another multiplayer game- PABJE.
No, we are not kidding, the PABJE game, or as it is called on the Play store as PABJE: Player And BattleJung Ends is developed by one called Dipak Kattikar. The game which looks heavily inspired by PUBG has a difference. Unlike PUBG, PABJE is a game where one can “find enemy and kill enemy” and not a battle royale.
The app description also stands out altogether. It reads, “Winner Winner Chicken Dinner. This game is developed by Indie game developer ( Player And BattleJung Ends )” which is followed by “Please Don’t See Bad Comment Because The Many Users played 57 version of game but 77 game version is fixed bugs please Play And Support me please.” Oh, there is also PABJE Lite, just in case. Although for iOS users both remain unavailable.
“For legends to survive this top action games 2019 will take you to the battleground to fire freely for the survival as sniper hero in the best offline shooting games with amazing battleground fire in this best action game 2019,” the description added. So the app has been in the Play Store since 2019.
The game has more than 100,000 installs and a 2.5 rating in Google Play Store. So its highly unlikely for the game to come into PABJE while searching for PUBG unless they made a typo. However, after the PUBG ban on both Apple and Google Play Store who knows PABJE might become the next hip thing.
