LifeAfter Review - Can YOU survive the Zombie Apocalypse?

Behold as another zombie apocalypse survivor game, makes its way towards all the gaming frenzies out there. It’s not a race against survival as a human but this time the game allows you to choose between being a human or a half-zombie survivor. Can you survive this crude world while being a half-zombie? Find that out by playing LifeAfter brought to you by Netease. 

The best thing about this game is that it takes you on a guided gameplay session. So, you wouldn't feel alien to the story or the experience. The longer you play the game, the better living conditions you get & the deeper you have to go into the wilderness to get tasks accomplished.

The game includes the best 3D graphics we’ve seen so far & had pretty realistic weather effects that impact one’s gameplay. When it rains it gives an impression as if the display is actually wet.

If you catch a cold that'll not only slow you down but also makes your stats go down. To get the necessary materials to make jackets and rags you have to rely on your basic survival instincts. This increases the armour HP of your Avatar. The game allows you to be your own thing & define your own objectives.

Now, is this game the first of its kind? Certainly not. I did find this game very similar to the Last Day on Earth that was released by Kefir in 2017. It was awarded the most innovative game on Google Play for that year. The game is very similar to the one I mentioned in terms of many features. However, the two major differences I spotted were the better & more realistic graphics & the very unique revenant mode that was launched in season 4 of this game.

The graphics are an absolute spot on and only add to the entire gaming experience. The recent & updated season 4 included a very unusual feature in the game. It introduces a new revenant mode that you mightn’t find in any other zombie apocalypse game. This mode allows the players to choose between whether they wish to become a Revenant which is a hybrid between a human & an infected or remain a human.

The concept of revenant came from the idea of saving infected humans. So, if your Avatar has been infected then they can become a revenant without having to become a brain-dead zombie. By becoming a revenant your Avatar gets superhuman abilities & strengths. This increases the chance of your survival in a zombie-infected world. Changing into a revenant character also changes your Avatar's appearance giving them a cooler superhuman look. 

The game allows you to play as a human over one server & as a revenant over some other server. Another way is that you can create two different Avatars over the same server. This way you can retain the perks of both identities without having to choose one.

One unnecessary feature that the game comes with is that you can’t carry back the things collected while being in a certain area in your backpack unless you mail it through a postman. The postman here is an MPC character. Honestly, I find this an unnecessary feature, instead, it would've been far more helpful if the user could carry these items in their backpack. However, due to the limited inventory space, you have to properly think through & carefully strategize between what you really need and what you already have. 

The coolest highlight I felt worth mentioning is that at the beginning of the game you can pick a doggy companion for yourself & just like that you’ll never be alone in the wilderness. The game also allows you to interact with real people, once in a while, you'll come across another survivor trying to survive. The funniest detail is that the game allows you to loot zombies as well.

Mining, combat, crafting & gathering actions only adds to one’s ability points. The game has a built function that allows you to build your base however you want it by gathering all the necessary materials.

A major drawback of the game is that it has a monthly subscription service. This provides the user with some bonuses paired with bigger inventory space. Which is a bummer. Another major drawback is that the game sometimes lags, I played it on an 8/128 GB phone and it still showed delays. It takes up massive storage of 6.31 GB and in case of a new update, it’ll exceed even this. The game is available on Android, iOS & even PC via a PC client. 

All in all, initially it takes some time for the user to get used to the gameplay, but once you’re past that stage the real fun begins.
