#GamingBytes: Is Survival Game better than PUBG Mobile?
PUBG Mobile remains the most popular Battle Royale on mobile platforms in the Indian market. However, it could soon be facing stiff competition from the recently launched Survival Game. Here, we take a look at both these Battle Royale games and compare the experience they deliver. Read on to find out if Survival Game is better than PUBG Mobile .
For now, Survival Game is only available on the Mi store, so you need to own a Xiaomi phone to play the game. PUBG Mobile, on the other hand, has greater ease of access, being available on Android and iOS stores. Coming to game size, Survival Game has a clear advantage as it is only 185 MB while PUBG Mobile requires 1.6 GB space.
Naturally, due to the game size of Survival Game, its graphics are not as good as PUBG Mobile's. However, this might actually be advantageous in a market like India as lower-end phones will be able to run Survival Game smoothly. However, if you are looking for a good experience, PUBG Mobile should still be your pick. Moreover, Survival Game has lesser features till now.
PUBG Mobile has playable characters which can be completely customized down to their hairstyle, hair color, skin tone, and gender. Survival Game, on the other hand, has only four playable characters. There are two male and two female characters, with small backstories. As gamers often express themselves through characters, PUBG Mobile offers far more options than Survival Game.
The gameplay is similar as players leap from a plane onto a shrinking map and loot and kill opponents. In fact, Survival Game looks futuristic in appearance, in terms of characters. However, the number of weapons in Survival Game is much lower than PUBG. Further, the shooting and driving mechanism of PUBG Mobile is far more polished than Survival Game at the moment.
Survival Game straps players with a jet-pack, for which they have to loot fuel. Not only does this make the looting process more complex, in terms of inventory management, but it makes movement and firefights far more dynamic. PUBG Mobile has a grounded approach to combat but in Survival Game the jet-packs will let players utilize a height advantage before opening fire on opponents.
Between PUBG Mobile and Survival Game, the former is better overall. However, Survival Game has time for improvement, and if it maintains game size, it might become more popular since lower grade phones can run it. Further, jet-packs add a new dynamic to the Battle Royale. For now, PUBG Mobile is still the best, but Survival Game could give solid competition in the future.
