Fight for the Right to Life in Survival Simulator!

Survival Simulator drops you off on a island wearing only your white underwear, but you come surprisingly well equipped outside the caveman style clothing. For example, you have two guns—a revolver and an assault rifle, and two hatchets and a pickax. Your inventory has been loaded to keep you stocked and prepared for the long haul ahead.

Survival Simulator drops you off on a island wearing only your white underwear, but you come surprisingly well equipped outside the caveman style clothing. For example, you have two guns—a revolver and an assault rifle, and two hatchets and a pickax. Your inventory has been loaded to keep you stocked and prepared for the long haul ahead.

The Graphics

In terms of graphics, Survival Simulator looks mediocre at best. In fact, some more varied terrain would help this game along. For example, everywhere you wander on this island feels like the same place you visited before. At first, it doesn’t matter much because you have sensory overload, but after a while, you start to wish you had more variation from the landscape of the game. To be fair, the graphics don’t look bad for a game of this type, but they’re certainly not beautiful.

Enemies in the Game

Like with the landscape, this survival game (wikipedia) needs more variety in the enemies you face. For example, you have wild boars, zombie-like cavemen who attack you relentlessly, and presumably wild chickens on the run. Finding other NPCs is impossible. Chickens will simply run from your attack and wild boars will eventually give up, but God help you if you run across a caveman, and you have a bad aim because he will charge you until you drop dead from the thirst. A little expert advice: Don’t try to take on a caveman with a throwing spear. You will keep missing in Survival Simulator until your spear runs out, and he will keep charging you even after you have no weapons.

Directionless and Lacks Challenge

The game itself feels unfinished because it has no mission, and because you start out with everything you need and next to a base with everything you could craft: an anvil, sleeping bag and campfire, you have almost no need for everything found in your inventory. In fact, it’d be better if they had started you out with nothing so that you had more strategy to go from there. Even if they had only done that, it would’ve been a major improvement to the game.

In truth, Survival Simulator may hold your interest for a half hour, but it probably won’t be too appealing after a couple hours. It needs more improvements to stack up to the other games on the market. That’s why we give this game two-and-a-half stars out of five. It’s not necessarily bad, but it feels undeveloped.

A child of Wormateio and Slitherio is born – welcome WORMAX IO!

Fans of addictive gameplay and simple yet beautiful interfaces will love Wormax, also known as Wormax.io. This game is modeled after the classic arcade style of gameplay, and it is highly reminiscent of other Snake-based games like Worm and Nibbler. The object of the game is quite simple; players must survive as long as they can while avoiding other players in the game arena, and they must collect ‘food’ littered throughout the map in order to grow larger in size. Obviously, larger worms have a distinct advantage over smaller worms since they have much more surface area that others can collide with.

Bloble.io – The Tank IO Game

While most IO multiplayer games opt to keep things simple, Bloble.io touts itself as a complex multiplayer strategy game. Bloble.io demands a huge time commitment from its audience, so most players looking for something they can drop into for just a few minutes will walk away frustrated. An average game of Bloble.io takes upwards of 20 to 30 minutes and requires your full attention. Outside of this time commitment, the lack of an in-depth instruction manual or tutorial is one of the biggest faults about Bloble.io. However, gamers who stick with it and learn the ropes will find one of the most satisfying multiplayer experiences you can have in a Web browser. Continue reading Bloble.io – The Tank IO Game

Legends of Honor is a castle building defense game

The play style is akin to Farmville, Civilization, and games of this nature, and also has an isometric view. The first thing you are introduced to is the advisor, whose name is Jasmine. Jasmine walks you through a simple point and click tutorial that seems to drag out longer than it should. You will find the resources available in the upper left-hand corner, while your building abilities are at the bottom of the screen. In most cases, when you select an option from the interface, like a building that you have created, additional options will then appear for you to choose from.  Continue reading Legends of Honor is a castle building defense game
