Games in the genre of strategy, survival, and adventure have long been firmly entrenched in the hearts of gamers. Survival is a basic human instinct. Even in the most terrible situations, people seek at all costs to save their lives. Such games give what is so lacking in real life of ordinary people – thrills, adrenaline and unexpected plot twists.
You can face a terrible accident at a nuclear power plant, repulse the invasion of genetically modified plants, fight with whole armies, and also try many other scenarios. Of course, there is no desire to face all this in real life. But tickling the nerves in the game is just what you need. We have compiled the best games in this genre for smartphones on iOS and Android. All you have to do is select one or more options from the list.

At night it should be a fire or a torch, otherwise darkness will swallow you. And the monsters hiding in the darkness will simply kill you.
Management simulates the movement of the mouse, which can not but rejoice fans of computer games. But this is not the main feature of Don’t Starve. The main thing here is the atmosphere of fear.

You can resist not only monsters, but also the elements. Ocean Nomad – in which you find yourself on a raft in the open ocean. The task is quite understandable – not to die. It can be even harder than surviving a zombie apocalypse. During the post-apocalypse, you will have to explore the endless waters of the boat, survive on the island, look for tools and food. Remember – the world around is fraught with many dangers. This is not a peaceful vacation in the tropics, but severe hourly trials.
As you know, in the ocean there is a dangerous predator – a shark. But she can help you too. Intercept its prey with a hook and thereby provide yourself with food. Want to catch the shark itself? This can also be done. In the chests around which sharks swim, you can find many valuable items, as well as the necessary resources to improve the raft. Be careful: the shark suddenly becomes aggressive and can attack. That’s why armor and weapons are so important. With them, avoiding death will be much easier.
On the island and in the ocean, you explore the post-apocalyptic world, build a house and arrange water trips. On the water you need mainly to fish, while simultaneously protecting yourself from shark attacks. Walking through the jungle, you can stumble upon something new, interesting or dangerous. For example, it is a fallen plane or wild animals.
