Managing its multitude of interconnected systems requires a deft touch, and while its difficulty isn’t for the faint of heart, there’s a real sense of accomplishment in keeping your growing troupe of survivors alive for days on end. While not as effective as other forays into the well-trodden post-apocalypse, as well as being a victim of its own procedural generation at times, there’s still a morbid curiosity to its pixel art survivalism.
Sheltered is a complicated game that will remind mobile gamers of Fallout Shelter - a game with which it shares its aesthetics and its modus operandi. Resources are scarce, time is money, and good decisions have to be made in the creation of objects in order not to waste resources and save as many lives as possible. It'll be crushing at first, but it rewards those who persevere and learn from their mistakes, even if they might make a lot of them to start with.
Sheltered makes for an engaging time killer in short bursts, but very few of its survival themed mechanics serve in benefit to the overall experience. Where Scenario actually makes good use of the premise, Survive suffers considerably due to poor RNG, a tedious loop, and a difficulty curve that, while adjustable, does very little to accommodate newcomers.
