Rules Of Survival : Players Unknown Battlegrounds On Mobile – If you are a fan of massively multiplayer online (MMO) games, then you’ll surely enjoy Rules Of Survival.
What Is Rules Of Survival ?
Rules of Survival from NetEase Games fits you against one hundred and nineteen other players in a free to play third-person battle royale shooter. To be the last player standing is the main goal of this game.
The game starts as each player parachutes out of an airplane to land on the game’s vast island. Drop in strategically on the island and quickly gather armor, weapons and other items to help you survive the intense battle. There are numerous buildings in the island (armory, gas stations, houses, office building and more) which players can explore to find the badly needed weapons and other arsenals.
There are 3 ways to do battle in this game – go in solo, with a teammate or a squad of four players. Players have the option of getting random companions or fight with a squad of friends. Teammate and squad play offer the best advantage because, as they say, there is strength in numbers. For instance, if one of your teammate or anyone in your squad dies, you can revive him within a certain period of time.
Aside from the usual battle equipment, there are a number of vehicles players can use to their advantage. The battleground is massive and using these vehicles is a must if you want to cover a lot of ground. Remember, your “safe zone” is ever so slowly shrinking and you must be within this area to stay alive. Be wary though, other players are also trying to avoid this fatal area and soon enough you will have to face all your enemies eventually.
I installed the game on my Android tablet to get a first-hand experience of what other’s described as “intense” battle.
To start, this is the first time I played this game but I didn’t have a problem following the instructions on how to play Rules of Survival. The game’s graphics are okay and the controls layout are well-placed. I knew exactly what buttons to touch if I wanted to crawl, hunker down, run, shoot or just stay still.
Since I was new at the game, I entered the battle area using the “solo” gameplay. I dropped from the plane in an area where there were lots of building I could use for cover. As I landed, things started slowly for me but soon became frantic as other players were already trying to kill me. I haven’t even found anything yet – not a weapon – so I used my fists to fend off in incoming adversaries. Of course I got easily killed.
One thing I observed – every players looks almost exactly the same at the start of the game. Perhaps I haven’t played long enough yet and haven’t had the chance to get some “rewards” for the kills I’ve done. From the game’s description, I should be able to customize my character after collecting some rewards to buy “outfits” from the gamestore via in-app purchase.
Knowing that this is a “survival” game, I should have a strategy to stay alive and win the game. The second time I dropped in, I ran to the nearest building and collected what I could find. Luckily, there was a Desert Eagle and some bullets which I quickly picked up and stayed foot inside the building. I wanted other players to kill each other before I come out of hiding.
This seem liked a good plan. All I had to do was wait and defend my “fortress” when other players came close. I can easily see where they were coming from and easily killed them with just my pistol. But the waiting game became a bit boring so I ran to the adjacent building where I found more powerful weapons and other stuffs. Here, I continued my “waiting game” until only about twenty-four players were left.
I came charging out, found a shotgun, some ammo and started shooting at the other players. Finally killed two and was able to collect some rewards for my kills! This is more exciting than my “waiting” plan! Unfortunately, there were better players than I was so, again, I got killed.
Anyway, I had a taste of the game and I could say that Rules of Survival is good enough for those who are fans of the genre. There were a few glitches, game freeze and lag while playing the game but overall experience was okay. I’m sure the developers are busy fixing these issues and perhaps the next update to the game will give users an even smoother and more immersive gameplay.
