Console: Gameboy Color
Survival Kids is about surviving on a deserted island in the middle of the ocean – a simple enough concept on paper, but an intriguing, engaging game in practice. Featuring open-ended gameplay before it was the hot thing to do, Survival Kids features multiple ways to progress through and complete the game.
Of course, for its time, this was pretty mind blowing and is one of the game’s biggest selling points. Players must monitor hunger, thirst and fatigue meters in addition to the traditional Health Points that require the completion of everyday tasks like eating, drinking, and sleeping, as well as hunting, gathering, and finding a place to sleep for the night. If you’re looking for something a bit different on the Game Boy Color, Survival Kids is your ticket.
