Gameplay

The Survivalists Review
Craft materials but don’t die!

In the Survivalists, the aim of the game is to well, survive. It’s one of the best survival games I’ve found so far on the app store and this is due to the resemblance it has to Stardew Valley. When playing this game, it feels like you’re playing a proper console or PC game, rather than a mobile game and it’s great fun! You can customize your character, chop down trees, craft recipes, and craft items.

Graphics

The Survivalists Review
The graphics are similar to Stardew Valley, however, they have their own special touch!

Just like the gameplay heavily reminds me of Stardew Valley, the graphics do too. If you’re looking for a high-quality crafting and survival game that won’t break the bank, this is a brilliant option.

Music & Sounds

As you’re stranded near a beach, you can hear a lot of seagulls and waves crashing as you go exploring. This is a nice touch and honestly makes the game feel so chilled and relaxing. A lot of survival games on the app store are pretty intense and expect you to do so much in a little time, but this gives a much more chilled out vibe.

Controls

The Survivalists Review
Drag the joystick to control!

To control your character, move the virtual joystick around. If you want to perform an action, there are 4 buttons on the top left-hand side of the screen and a few down at the bottom. These will all come in handy depending on if you want to craft or explore so get familiar with them.

The Power of in-app Purchases

The Survivalists Review
The Survivalists is a part of Apple Arcade, therefore, has no in-app purchases!

As this is a game included in the Apple Arcade subscription (£4.99 a month), it contains no ads or in-app purchases.

The Verdict

The Survivalists Review
What did you think of The Survivalists?!

As I am a big fan of games where you can craft, this is a brilliant game in my eyes. If you’re big on Stardew Valley, Animal Crossing, or even Terraria, you’re going to love The Survivalists. I’m definitely going to keep this game on my phone for some time as I’m already addicted.
