In this review, we will determine how good this game really is! You will discover it’s good aspects, the bad ones, and even suggestions on how this game could improve. is a free to play, role playing, action, survival game. That is to say, you select a survivor/hero and try to survive through multiple waves of enemies. As you can see in the images on this page, the game is a lot like Vampire Survivors.

The object of the game is to fight through each chapter and then beat the boss at the end. Before starting a chapter or battle, you can equip your survivor and a pet, so that it has a better chance at surviving.

Every time your survivor levels up, the action pauses, and a screen pops up with 3 options. When this happens, you can choose a weapon or a buff to upgrade and assist you. When you match a maxed weapon with its corresponding buff, you gain access to an even stronger weapon!

I played with the starting hero for this content, because it’s hard to get more characters!

The Bad

  • It’s easy to lose track of where your survivor/hero is, specially during boss fights when it matters the most. Also, at times you can’t even tell where the boss is.
  • As a colorblind person, the color of the “Better” and “Excellent” items looks the same.
  • I find other games of this genre easier to control.
  • At the present time, only 1 hero is available at the beginning, and it’s not easy to unlock more.
  • There is no official PC version available yet, only emulated.
  • The game is a bit too loud, even on the lowest volume on my Android phone. review gameplay videolucas screen screenshot image living sand boss weapon

Cartoon-like graphics Review – Quick Tips

  • Get a good maxed Weapon quickly, to keep you alive. Then get another one maxed out.
  • The Bat weapon and its evolution(Lucille) are very strong, and so is the reduce CD buff.
  • To kill bosses faster I like the Lightning Emitter weapon and its evolution, Supercell.
  • I recommend getting the pickup range buff. This way you can level up much faster.
  • I like the HP regen buff, so that you don’t have to depend on the meat pickups to heal yourself.
  • Test different weapon combinations to see what works best for you in
  • Analyze your weapon damage stats after battle to see what is best for you in the future.
  • Don’t upgrade all your equipment, only the best that you will use for a good while.
  • Save up and buy the x10 packs/chests in the shop.
  • Complete the easy daily quests at least.
  • Also, play in the Events for free loot.
  • Join a clan for extra rewards.

How can be improved?

  • More original weapons could be added to the game.
  • Access to new heroes could be a bit easier and less grindy.
  • The weapons could show what buffs they correspond to.
  • Take into account colorblind people when you design the game. Avoid using similar colors on different item rarities.
  • The map/ground graphics are okay, but could be improved.
  • Add ground obstacles such as boulders to give some protection on the tougher waves.
  • Although probably difficult implement, a non-local cooperative mode for would be awesome!

The Verdict: 7.5/10

I found and started playing this game some time ago because it was like Vampire Survivors. I recently came back to it to write content for this review.

This is a great casual game to pick up if you have some free time. You can quickly jump into a game due to its fast loading time.

The competition in this genre is fierce and I think this game needs more gameplay variety. I say this because the events I played were all very similar.

All things considered, is a fun, free game with no visible bugs, and receives a 7.5 out of 10 rating from me.

I appreciate you so much for reading up to here!
