    It's not the most complicated game, but Trial By Survival makes up for it with feeling, making it well worth checking out in my book.

    While Trial by Survival gets the setting, atmosphere and look just right, it can't provide the sense of exploration, nor the palpable sense of progression that would make it essential. [Nov 2013, p.78]

    Trial By Survival’s potential is hobbled by its greed.

    Trial by Survival fails to realise the potential for cautious exploration and surprise discoveries in such a post-apocalyptic scavenging setup, and includes an ill-suited twin-stick combat system to boot.

    Ultimately, Trials By Survival feels a lot like Zombies Ate My Neighbors: with its randomized levels that are filled with dozens of the similar background objects, hundreds of zombies that all look the same, and its frenzied top-down control method. Unfortunately, Trials does not have anywhere near the charm that Neighbors had, and is just a failed attempt at trying to take bits and pieces from tried-and-true areas of both gaming and fiction in order to appeal to a specific niche of fans.
