Gameplay

You’re lost at sea and you need to survive – what do you do?

Picture this. You’re on a plane, it crashes and you end up in the middle of the sea with only a raft. It’s your job now to survive long enough until you’re finally saved.

Raft Survival – Ocean Nomad is a survival game where you collect materials and make survival weapons with them. You can also explore islands in order to find materials and to check if there’s anyone living.

To start off you’re made to fish for some food and water. To start, you need to make a net to catch the fish, and you then place wherever you want on your raft. You can then pick the type of fish you want to eat, however, to begin with, you can only choose Anchovies so it won’t keep you full for long. To get the water, you have to make a rain catcher which gathers the moisture of the ocean, accumulating it in a bottle. Again, choose a place on your raft to place it and start collecting drinking water! Further down the line, you can also make your raft bigger!

Graphics

The graphics are great!

I was unsure about the graphics for Raft Survival – Ocean Nomad when I first entered the game as the starting scene was just a bunch of photos. But through persevering, I realized that once you start the gameplay, they become noticeably better.

Music & Sounds

There is no background music in Raft Survival – Ocean Nomad and I think it’s perfect. I feel as if music would ruin the whole feeling of being lost at sea. However, there are lots of sounds. For example, you can hear the ocean waves, splashes when you search for things, and wood creaking from the raft. These all add to the gameplay and help the feeling of being abandoned at sea.

Controls

Control with the toggle button!

Despite thinking the gameplay looked pretty hard when I first entered Raft Survival – Ocean Nomad, the controls are really easy to use. On the left-hand side of the screen, there is a toggle button and you use this to move and look around. On the right-hand side of the screen, you have a load of buttons that’ll help you build with your materials.
