Survivor.io is a single-player survival game that was developed by Habby. Throwing you into different maps, the game makes you fight thousands of monsters with the help of various weapons and equipment. Run around the map, ensuring you don’t get surrounded and survive as long as possible.
The game has it all, Gatling Guns, Lighting rods, Cyborgs, poison butterflies, and much more. Fend off the monsters and survive to take down the boss because you see them as “Survival of the fittest.” After thoroughly going through the game, we have written a review, so without further ado, let’s dive in!
The SFX and Soundtrack
Not enough praise can be given to the SFX and soundtrack of this game. Every click had such a satisfying sound, and the music is definitely something you would want to listen to while you take down monsters. Highly recommend using headphones while playing this game because it was a great addition.
Weapons and Supplies
Offering various weapons and supplies, each with its strengths and weaknesses, added to the game’s complexity. Each weapon and supply having a unique utility allows players to clear the same stage using different playstyles. Having 10 slots for supplies and weapons and the three random options to upgrade each time you level up during a game kept it interesting.
With each stage taking nearly 20 minutes to complete while containing over 50 stages, it’s safe to say you can spend a lot of time playing this game. The game’s simple yet appealing gameplay keeps you engaged for long periods. For example, it took me 40 minutes to clear the first stage, which was fun.
Survivor.io even has a slot mini-game in the middle of clearing stages. When you take down strong monsters, they drop a chest containing a chance to play that slot machine to get rewards. This game is worth experiencing once.
Great User Interface
A good UI makes or breaks the game. The developers of Survivor.io made sure to make the UI as simple and intuitive as possible while retaining its effectiveness. Offering an option to lower the graphics and control the in-game VFX. You can even toggle the joystick on/off in the settings. Vibrant colors and clear labels have made it easy to navigate through the game.
Coins Feel Lackluster
Coins in this game are so easy to obtain, and it’s evident why there isn’t much to do with them. Sure, you can upgrade skills and equipment using coins, but everything else requires you to use gems. Although coins do contribute to the game, I would like to see more use of them. For example, something customized character skins can be unlocked using coins would add another incentive to clear stages.
Internet Connection Required
Even though the game is practically offline, there is a requirement to be connected to the internet at all times. This wasn’t very pleasant because sometimes you play this game while moving around, and it stops the game. I could understand if the game has some online aspects, but in Survivor.io, there is nothing like that.
Survivor.io has an inadequate tutorial. It throws you into the game without explaining anything about it. You have to figure the game out through trial and error, which was initially annoying. You didn’t know how long you had to survive or how many bosses you had to fight per stage. You didn’t even understand the slot machine minigame initially, as no information was provided for it.
With fun and addicting concepts, Survivor.io is definitely a fun game you must try. Offering several unique and lengthy stages, along with a variety of weapons to choose from. Although it has a simple design, it requires strategic thinking and planning. This game has some downsides, like the constant internet connection requirement and certain aspects not being fully capitalized, but the good outweighs the bad. Definitely a game worth trying if you are bored and looking to pass your time.
