Rules Of Survival

Rules Of Survival is a free 3rd person shooter from NetEase and was originally released on the 17th of November 2017 and is available on both iOS and Android platforms. There is also a Windows version. Rules of Survival takes the general battle royale genre (games like Fortnite Battle Royale or Realm Royale) and brings it to mobile while giving players the chance to participate in a 300-player free-for-all that no other game in the genre has currently tried to attempt; at least on a mobile device.

The Game Review

With Rules of Survival being a solely online title, there is no story to speak of. Instead, each game starts off with the player flying over the map, looking for the perfect place to drop, and then diving towards the ground until landing, which is where the real game starts.

After players have reached the ground, it’s then their job to look around the nearby area for some loot, such as armor, weapons, and general attachments to make certain weapons easier to use. This loot is ladled all across the map for players to find and pick up, so towards the beginning of the game it tends to be a snatch-and-grab scenario, where the quickest player to pick up some of the better items is the one who is more likely to survive.

Once some loot has been found, players then have to spend the next 30-40 minutes in the game looking for or staying away from other players. The goal just like in any other battle royale game is to be the last player standing while killing any and all players that try to threaten that. As time goes on, the map that players are safe in slowly starts to close and encircle a specific spot, eventually making the only safe area in the game incredibly small, forcing the remaining players to fight.

When it comes to the visuals, Rules of Survival uses a similar style to PUBG and tries to make the game come across as a little more realistic than others in the genre, without going overboard. With this in mind, it’s quite clear that Rules of Survival takes a lot of its design choices from PUBG. The visuals and the general gameplay are very similar to one another and for anyone that’s found themselves enjoying PUBG on PC or Xbox One, then they’re bound to enjoy what Rules of Survival brings to the table.

Rules of Survival effectively takes the battle royale genre that Fortnite and PUBG have made so popular over the last year and has ported it onto mobile devices, without forcing the user’s device to worry about much slowdown due to performance. A unique feature of the game is the fact that the number of players per match can go all the way up to 300 and while that can make things rather difficult and chaotic, it manages to create an experience no other game in the genre is currently doing. That, along with the ranked system just gives fans of the genre even more reasons to pick up the game for themselves.
