Engage in a decision-based adventure title driven by an incredible story

DIY Island 2 is a survival adventure game and sequel Tinker Island: Pixel Art Survival Adventure. Players must survive alongside fellow survivors to establish bases and establish control of the island. The first Tinker Island game was actually quite a well developed and popular title. Now the question is whether Tinker Island 2 is also worth players time. In this article, we are going to review Tinker Island 2 and share our first impressions of the game.

Tinker Island 2 offers easy-to-grasp gameplay with an emphasis on decision-making skills

Starting with the review, Tinker Island 2 looks pretty good in terms of layout and pixelated visuals. The game has a good feel and begins by introducing players to other survivors and teaching them the basics. Hunting, setting up camp, and lighting a campfire will be some of the first activities players will engage in.

The gameplay is quite simple and nothing too difficult to learn. It gradually goes through the basics and most of it involves tapping and dragging things. Decision making is an important part of the game and players have to make a number of decisions while talking to other survivors and performing different activities.

The game has two factions: The villagers and Nationals the aliens being the main antagonists. Once players have chosen a side, they must complete a host of quests in order to help their side establish dominance over the island. There’s also a pretty good story that does a good job of guiding the player through the game and the decisions players can make allow them a bit of freedom although sometimes the game nudges you in the direction it wants you to. go.

Bug-free gameplay that gets harder as players progress

The island the game takes place on also hides some mysteries and has a bunch of places to discover (more than 50). Players will also have to build and install colonies and fight various enemies. The combat interface is quite easy to get used to as advertised by the developers and players will need to update their stats in order to keep up with the increasing difficulty of the game.

There are loads of wild animals, mutants and aliens to fight, so make sure your survivors are always ready to fight. There isn’t much character customization (players can choose from a small palette of pre-designed characters) but that’s not really a major drawback.

Also, the game gets hard and difficult as you progress, so although the game seems simple and easy, it can be quite challenging at times. No bugs or glitches were observed and it seems that the developers fixed the most issues during the previous testing phases of the game.

Simple controls but pixelated design falls short due to lack of soundtrack

Visually, the pixelated 2D look goes pretty well with the gameplay. There are sometimes illustrations added to help visualize the action of the survivors, which also adds a nice touch. The sound effects are pretty decent although there doesn’t seem to be a soundtrack like in the Tinker Island 2 prequel. The only issue here was with the gameplay where some animations could have been added to the battles for a better experience.

The controls are really simple since most of them involve clicking and dragging objects. The haptic feedback seems a little too strong, so it can be recommended to turn it off. The user interface is really clean and simple. The main menu and the actual game are merged but it doesn’t feel too cramped and there’s nothing negative to say here.

While IAPs help level up faster, grinding can achieve the same goal

The game has no ads (which is an upgrade from its prequel) although it has quite a bit of IAP. With real money, players can buy a bunch of in-game resources and currencies to get chests. This makes it easier to progress, but although the game is challenging and a bit gritty, it’s not that hard to play and put in the effort to progress. The game will give you many items for free, including chests of lower rarities.

final verdict

If you played Tinker’s Island: Pixel Art, it’s definitely an upgrade in terms of gameplay, visuals, and a bunch of other stuff. The only downside was the lack of soundtrack but that’s about it. This game also has no ads. If you love story-driven, decision-based adventure titles, Tinker Island 2 is a must-play.

The story is quite well thought out and there are quite a few witty remarks that make it even better. The game is not too difficult and is friendly enough for new players and it can hardly give anyone a bad time. It also feels a bit faster than its prequel in the series.

All things considered, it’s a very good game that deserves the attention of gamers looking for their next adventure game.
