Radiation Island is a survival game from the first person in style of Rust and ARK. The player should survive on a certain island, uninhabited by guess. Survival means that you should support two lines – health and bellyful. Of course for this purpose you have to find food. Also a craft system is available for the player – for his personal things, various furniture and elements of environment.
Also for this you should collect appropriate resources – trees, stones and so on. Some useful things you can’t create by yourself, so you have to find it around you. There are different enemies and you will kill them with the help of produced weapons. Besides them, there you can meet other dangerous things, for example – radiation. Now the game is on the level of development, creators plan to develop the project.
The plot of Radiation Island.
One of the game peculiarity – it is a plot. In most cases it exists for… how to say it) for beauty – the plane crashed, the ship sank or something else. But here developers look deeper. In the focus of attention there is a legendary Philadelphia Experiment. If you don’t know – it’s a fairytale about an experiment, performed by the scientific of USA in 1943. The sense of experiment was in teleportation when the destroyer “Eldridge” has been ported for several kilometers in a moment.
Moreover, it was transferred to another reality or something like that. And in the game we will play for one sailor, who was on the destroyer and fall into the drink. And of course he appeared not in native reality. Now he is on some unknown island. What a horrible thing! The hero should survive on this island and also to find out the way to come back home. It’s a quite fresh plot, isn’t it? Actually, I didn’t see something similar in movies. So, it deserves attention.
The gameplay of Radiation Island.
First, there is a system taken from Minecraft and analogs. In the afternoon there is more or less calm. But at night different monsters and zombies become hunt our hero. The second thing is an accurate commitment to the plot. Unlike analogs, the player won’t survive on any usual plot of land. There we can see a great lot of the most different constructions, often of uncertain usage.
The player also has to search places at his own risk, looking for various things, inaccessible for crafting. For example, a suit protecting from radiation. Ah yes, it is possible to meet there various anomalies, radiation, and the other shit, well-known from “Stalker”.
Graphics and design.
Graphics in the game is rather good. Though, it depends on your device. There are dynamic shadows, various reflections, flashing and so on. It is a pleasure to look at it. Animation is a little bit clumsy, especially it is noticeable at production of a stone with the help of a pick.
Actually, not for everyone these details can be important. Sound here is very good. The surroundings is also good – the player, constantly being in any place of the island, understand that he is in unusual conditions and any shit may happen. Also I appreciated an introduction of the game – of course it is made not as in PC games, but still not bad.
The control in Radiation Island.
Control is rather convenient in the game. There are even some elements which help in the process. For example, during hunting for animals the player can capture the camera on them and concentrate only on movement and usage of equipment. It is really convenient.
Also selection of things is realized well – it is enough to come closer and to click an appropriate indicator of the hand. And there are a lot of such details, which make the game very pleasant to play. In addition you can see an access panel, where you can place necessary equipment. It’s a beauty, my friends.
