Survivor: The Flash Game
Apparently, there is a lot of frustration with this game in how it leaves you stranded on a desert island and leaves you only ten days to gather the materials you need to defend yourself from a tribal onslaught of cannibals, and make no mistake, it certainly is. Of course, this is a game that forces you very much to explore your environment to learn every thing you need to know about the game and how to beat it, so you can see how some people may whine about not having enough time to prepare or find anything, because three game overs is just the limit with some people. This game also allows you to fast forward the speed, so you can move as slow or fast as you want, but you might want to keep it at the slow setting so as not to die. The game may be paused as well to give you a chance to review your stats and materials. Nevertheless, if you're up for a real game of Survivor, I highly recommend this.
But for those of you who tend to come into games like a deer staring at high beams, here are a few tips to help you along the way:
1.) Go along the beach to collect every single item along the shore, especially the tools, bucket and Bible.
2.) There are only a few buildings in the game that need concern you: the altar, the rope maker, maybe the well, the plank house (it's in the first building tab), and the fortress, which you might end up building at the end of the game depending on your efficiency.
3.) As soon as you collect the tools, start collecting materials. First you want wood, and lots of it. You want to cut down about 30 logs over the 10 days, because 8 of those are going to the plank house alone. Once you got a good 10 logs, build the plank house and altar, and pray to the altar every day before and after bed (I'm not one for religion myself, but within this game, it's as important as eating and sleeping, so do it). If you can go without a well (water can be acquired at the river on the far left of the screen), that's fine, because you will need that stone to construct the fortress, and you can find all the stone you need in the upper-right corner of the level.
4.) As you're going through the game, be sure to collect lots of food. A bunch of coconuts will work so long as you keep all your other stats up. If you encounter the apple trees, SAVE THE FRUIT, don't bother with the seeds, and only eat the apples when your stats get too low or you're on the brink of death. Speaking of food, make sure you skin and kill the deer in the game as their hide and meat will serve you well.
5.) If you were fastidious in your labors--collected materials, maintained high stats, and of course, built your structures--you should have a fortress days before the cannibals come, which will give you time to build other structures as well as look for Wilson along the beach. If not, then may Wilson take pity on you.
