Hidden Survivor from Joy Brick is a hide-and-seek survival game for Android and iOS

Posted by Cameron Bald on February 5th, 2020
+ Universal App - Designed for iPhone and iPad

Joy Brick's Hidden Survivor is an interesting title of two halves: part story-focused survival experience, part intense hide-and-seek multiplayer game. Both elements come together to form a compellingly strange and enjoyable whole.

The hide-and-seek arena battles task you with scouring your surroundings for useful items. Knowing when to use these items is key to remaining successful and earning as many points as possible.

The twist is that you can disguise yourself as any object in the level, hopefully allowing you to go unnoticed when one of your rivals becomes the player-hunting 'Seeker'. As the match progresses, certain areas of the level will grow dangerous to linger in, causing you damage over time.

Out There is an old go-to recommendation for a lot of mobile stalwarts, but I could never really get into it. This sci-fi survival game that blended elements of interactive fiction and roguelike mechanics just felt a little off-balance and a little too random for my liking. After being out for six years though, Out There has gone through some changes. The latest of which is a content update entitled “The Alliance” that looked just interesting enough for me to try and pick up the game all over again.

Headshot ZD Guide - How to Survive Just A Little Longer

Posted by Campbell Bird on February 2nd, 2018

Surviving in the zombie apocalypse can be quite tough, particularly if you’re dealing with the kind of zombies that can only be dispatched with shots to the head. Headshot ZD gives you that exact task in a free-to-play, survival-action format, and it’s one of those games where it’s surprisingly easy to fail if you’re not careful. In the interest of saving you and your zombie team from being eaten alive, keep these tips in mind:

Skeleton crew

As you play Headshot ZD, you may run across survivors that will want to join your crew. In most zombie games, you might want to take these people under your wing, but Headshot ZD is not most zombie games. This is a game about survival, and the more people you bring into your settlement, the more mouths you have to feed. Unless a survivor has some unique weapon or really great stats, you might just want to keep your crew to one or two members, particularly in the early game.
