1. Doomsday: Last Survivors


Doomsday: Last Survivors takes you into a world filled with zombies, lurking and ready to attack. Your main goal is to devise effective strategies, including building shelters, setting up barricades, and restoring locations damaged by the zombie apocalypse. In short, your survival is all that counts, and you'll need to find a way to survive.

You'll be playing the role of Liam, accompanied by other hardy survivors ready to lend a helping hand. Peggy, Cynthia and Charlie will join you as heroes, fearlessly venturing into battle.

In this strategic game, there's no need for you to directly combat the zombies. Instead, your responsibility lies in determining the most efficient attack strategy. Each hero possesses unique combat capabilities.

It should be noted that some of the characters in this game have similarities to popular figures from other zombie games. Take Cynthia, for example.

The similarities are striking between her physique, clothing and even her facial features to Jill Valentine, a famous character from the Resident Evil franchise. On the other hand, Peggy resembles the protagonists of The Walking Dead series, including Clementine.

In terms of visuals, this zombie apocalypse-themed strategy game has stunning graphics. The size of this game is relatively large, almost 1 GB. However, we tested it on a mid-range phone and experienced smooth gameplay with no noticeable lag.

Each facility you build enhances the community's viability and contributes to the happiness of its members. However, the more advanced the facility, the longer the construction period. The Carisinyal team found that using diamonds, earned by completing missions, greatly expedited the building process.

Additionally, the game allows you to recruit heroes for hunting and combat. These heroes, each with unique skills that can be developed, also assist in gathering extra natural resources.

The game begins in 2075, a period filled with challenges and dilemmas that demand your attention. Issues such as poverty, population, national security, and food shortages will require your astute judgment. The outcome of all these issues depends solely on the choices you make.

To make decisions, you will be faced with a card-based interface that allows you to swipe left or right. For example, if the governor reports food shortages among the population, you can choose to help by swiping right or refuse help by swiping left.

Lapse: A Forgotten Future provides an engaging and thought-provoking gaming experience as you navigate the complexities of rebuilding a country after a disaster.

If you choose to help, the population will increase, represented by the human icon turning from red to green. However, your financial resources will decrease.

On the other hand, let's consider another scenario where the military suggests strengthening the country's defense, which requires financial investment. If funds are limited, you can refuse, but it will lead to a decrease in the country's population.
