Stranded Without A Phone

Desert Island-based iPhone survival game from the Space HoRSE chaps.

Stranded Without A Phone from independent developer Gilligames is a desert island survival game set in the Space HoRSE universe. Four passengers on a space ship were on a mission to colonize a new planet when the ship crash landed on a planet that is almost completely covered by ocean. You, yes you, are the sole survivor, an upper-management executive from the Decoo Corporation, the company that sponsored the original mission. In this visually attractive game you must use your survival skills to stay alive long enough to get rescued. Build shelter, find food and drink, and collect salvageable parts from the wreckage that wash ashore. Use the parts to build a space radio and call for a rescue team to win the game.

Stranded Without A Phone features a familiar RPG-style inventory system, an incredible amount of items to utilize (more than 70!), randomly generated maps and realistic environments including day / night cycle and weather changes! To survive long enough while waiting to be rescued you must search for natural resources, and then use them to create other items using various combinations. For example, you need to search dirt areas for small boulders to build a fire pit, you can find coconuts as an immediate source of nutrition and hydration and if youre good enough you can find fish in shallow waters.

Since the games original release in October 2009, Gilligames has carefully listened to consumer feedback and made available several updates to the game to include new enhancements, features and a web-based item guide on popular demand. The developer has also released a free Lite version allowing prospective players to get a taste of what it would feel like to be stranded, isolated and stuck without a phone on a desert island!
