Survival Kids 2
In 2000 Konami released a follow up to their shipwrecked adventure Survival Kids on the Game Boy Color
. Although remaining a Japanese exclusive until the series was revitalised under the new name Lost In Blue for Nintendo DS, fan translation efforts have finally brought Survival Kids 2: Dasshutsu! Futago Shima
to English speaking audiences.
For those unfamiliar with Survival Kids, the game is exactly as it sounds - an RPG where your main aim is to survive against the odds of nature and find your way back to civilisation. Using the much loved top down adventure viewpoint, the first game in the series found our main protagonist washed up on a desert island. By combining items, bravely eating foraged goods and scouring the land, escape is made possible as long as the player remembers to drink often and recover through sleep.
