Genre: Survival / Strategy / Simulation
Developer: Robot Gentleman
The twisted sense of dark humour of this game will give you some laughs about the situation you‘ll find yourself in after the nuclear strike in a post-apocalyptic scenario. The story plays in the 1950th and except to the very first scene you will have only paintings leading you through the game. You start out with a tiny video that lasts 60 seconds. You will have to gather supplies during this short time and bring your family into your cellar. You will need to make the most of it and ration food and water now.
The first few days you should not even leave your cellar because radioactivity will be too high, so lets hope you collected enough food and water. Your little journal to the right lower corner will show you what to do and tell you what‘s going on. Random things are going to happen while you try to get time passing by down there in your bunker under the wasteland. You also need to prepare for trips to the surface and you will also need to cheer up your family and get enough rest. Face upcoming problems, illness and surprises.
You can send someone to the surface to scavenge and collect air drops. Don‘t forget your gas mask and come back soon. Unfortunately you can not watch what‘s going on outside, you‘ll just see the cellar room. The neat little game will keep you busy with decisions you will have to make careful. You also need to make contact to the military if they are coming to rescue anyone, but be careful not to let any bandits in.
The graphic and music aren't mind blowing, but funny. Everything is minimalistic and text-based. The endings are different depending on how much you screw up. You can play on 4 different difficulties: Atomic drill, apocalypse, scavenge or survival. The tutorial called atomic drill will explain the game mechanics to you. The game is diverting and short-lived.
We recommend: If you like that kind of point and click games, buy it when it is on sale!
