The basic rules in Stranded II remain the same as in the first game, Stranded I: The player plays as "Mr. Stranded", who finds himself (in the adventure mode after being shipwrecked) on a lone island, trying to survive. To do so, the player has to watch their vital stats such as hunger, thirst and fatigue which are displayed as bars in the upper left corner of the screen. Once one of these bars is filled completely the player starts to bleed and loses heath periodically which is also shown in the upper left corner. When this indicator lowers to zero the player dies. Furthermore attacks from wild animals or sleeping without a shelter will provide direct damage to the player. In order to restore some health they can eat or drink certain foods and drinks.
|Stranded - once again!|
|In Stranded II you face up with the struggle for survival again. However this time there is much more to discover and to explore compared to the prequel.
The whole island world is now better designed and has more details. It's possible to tame or poison animals or to burn trees for example.
One of the best improvements is simply the huge number of new possibilities and objects. Far more than 100 different items want to be found, used, combined, eaten or used in construction. Many new buildings allow you to build a powerful camp which offers protection and unexpected comfort.
Of course there are also single missions again. For example an island where you can play tower defense, a raptor hunting island or a mysterious color game.
That's not enough for you? Take a look at the editor and create your own islands. A clever scripting system offers nearly unlimited options. Objects can be changed with definitions and scripts as well. It's even possible to add completely new objects and to modify the whole game this way.
