    "Fan of Doom growing up? Love to watch the walking dead? In this survivalist game, you will find your love of the aforementioned entities shown on hand. Going into a futuristic planet, you will have to navigate its cumbersome atmosphere and find yourself just merely surviving on the land. This is an adventure game that will get you addicted in no time with its sleek design and easy to use interface."

    "This game has a great premise and okay execution. The graphics seem to be of GameBoy Color quality which is fairly disheartening. I think I'd enjoy the offline aspect of the game where I can focus on my own storyline rather than the online. The fact that it offers an online coop for a mobile game is what keeps this at the forefront of the mobile gaming community. Alas, it is essentially a mobile version rip-off of Fallout."

    "I played a few strategy games, but never one focused on survival. I had heard good things about They Are Billions, and thought to try it out here the other night. Let me tell you, this game is HARD, and will punish you for the tiniest mistake. However, it does feel rewarding when you do win, getting confirmation that your strategy worked. I like the zombie aspect, and the graphics are smooth and pleasing on the eyes."

    "How can you not like The Thing? The visuals and sound are top of the line. I found that learning the quick switch to flamethrower and then becoming professional at it a really vital skill but had to practice as to not seriously burn myself."

    "A first person shooter with plenty of loot and resources available to a skilled player should never be on a list with best survival games. I consider resource management essential to the survival genre so the story is good but it's not even survival."
