One of the Best Strategy Games I have played on mobile

My son, Jesus, showed me this game after he had played it at a friends house, at first I felt a little uneasy about this game, as the reviews say that it is for kids at the age of 12+, but after he showed me some gameplay, and after that I wanted to play too! We are now competitng to see who can last the logest. Very fun, Highly recommended!

Is It Any Good?

No one said the apocalypse was going to be easy, and this game will challenge you to think and prioritize your plans every step of the way. When the tension ramps up, as your health runs low and you're searching car trunks for bandages or something to eat, the tiny pixilated characters on-screen become riveting. There's certainly a constant layer of tension in Mini Dayz, but it's a game that eschews things like jump scares and in-app purchases. (The most commercial it gets is giving you the option to watch an ad for an air-dropped relief parcel.)

The controls aren't perfect (opt for the on-screen joystick rather than the point and walk), and it can be hard sometimes to see what's going on in the game because of the game's small print. But it's a title that will draw you back in to see if you can survive longer once you die (and you will die). And as your planning skills advance, you'll do much better, which will make you want to play more and more.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
