The description of Survival Game: Lost Island 3D
There are games in the survival sandbox genre that provide a true grip of the experience. Survival Game: Lost Island 3D has a cool title, but the same can’t be said about its gameplay, and there’s nothing that marks it out as different.
Essence of Survival Game: Lost Island 3D - 3/5
This is a true survival game at its core. You are lost on an island and have to survive the harsh environment and unfriendly elements that pose a potential threat to your safety and wellbeing. You have to scavenge for resources such as wood, water, gold, metal, and food. You can then use some of these resources to craft items such as tools. The game is played in a sandbox world meaning the game has no time limit to playing. An on-screen hand appears to give you directions. You can pull up your inventory list to check which items you have or need. You’ll also come into unfriendly elements such as wolves which you have to fight against.
Graphics and Audio - 3/5
The visuals are poorly rendered and seem like they were uncompleted in the development process. Everything looks so generic, and there’s nothing that distinguishes this game from the next 3D sandbox model. Even the maps are simply labeled ‘Island 1” or “Island 2”, and there’s no creativity to the entire setup. The textures look unrealistic, and there’s little contrast which means the game won’t have you remembering some impressive sight days later.
Controls - 3/5
This game has such a lacking control system, but this is less to do with Android devices and more with poor game design. An onscreen joystick would be better suited for this game as you have more control over your movement. There are on-screen icons which you can use to access your inventory, and there are also prompts, cues and visual hints that appear to guide what you do.
Immersion - 2/5
This game plays terribly, and lots of players have complained that this might be a consequence of bad game design. The crafting system at times simply doesn’t work, and even when it does, you might end up with another missing link. For example, lots of players have complained about finding a fishing pole which is essential but not being able to equip it. The weapons system is also terribly made, and the controls lag so painfully.
- Offers a tutorial and an active hint system;
- Meat and potatoes gameplay;
- Could be fun if it’s your first game in the genre.
- The game has too many ads;
- The controls lag or are unresponsive at times;
- No overhead map;
- Uninspired graphics.
Everything about this game is below standard. The gameplay feels stale, the graphics are uninteresting, and the controls are clunky and unintuitive. This game does little to provide a unique and worthwhile experience. The sandbox model was terribly designed, and it seems like a game that shouldn’t have made it beyond the testing phase. Don’t spend your time on this one, there are far better survival games out there.22 Jul 2019
