Survival Island: Episode 1 Overview

(¯`·.¸¸.·´¯`·.¸¸.-> Hi Gs, <-.¸¸.·´¯`·.¸¸.·´¯)

First off, the first thing you’re going to notice is the wind sound effect. It is stinking annoying. Second, the island is horrible if you’re writing a guide, because if you’re idle too long, your Poptropican freezes to death. But those are just my little pet peeves, let’s get on with the good stuff! 😆


First, we are confronted with some new interface icons. There’s a thermometer and a flag on the bottom of the screen, and plus a fire symbol when you have enough materials to make a fire. The thermometer is to keep your temperature up, and the flag is to determine the wind direction and speed. The last time we had special icons like this was the cell phone on Night Watch Island.

The story, as of now, is pretty vague: build a fire. At the end of the island, there is a hint that someone else is on the island, but that doesn’t really make up for the lazy story that they made. Islands aren’t supposed to be like this.

I do have to say that after all the episodes have come out, this island is going to be colossal.

They tried something new here, and that is that they made it harder by deceiving you. There are multiple things that you could do, although there is only one real path to take. The Handbook suggests that you can cut some grass to burn, and you leave a wedge stuck inside a tree. Some suspicious rats sleep inside a tree, and the Wet Kindling is never used once in the island. Are these possibilities for future episodes? It seems unlikely, though possible.

Those are my thoughts on Episode 1 (Crash Landing) of Survival Island. What do you think about the island? Tell me in the comments. 😀

  1. Awesome.

    Oh, and I wanted to say on the subject of Survival, look at the Info Page… The Google Play Store thing? The app will be coming to androids sooner I suppose then? And also, the Episode will be added *hehe*

      1. Eh, my ankle is propped up, and the Streaming is slow, so I have time xD

        Oh, and it’s not broken, so no cast, but stupid thing sprained so badly that I’ll be off of it for a month. (Sorry for offtopic.)

What's popping, Poptropicans?
