Atypical Games’ popular iOS game Radiation Island is available on the Mac App Store as of today. First launched for the iPad and iPhone January of this year, Radiation Island earned itself thousands of downloads and rave reviews from the iOS gaming community.
Positioned as an open world survival game, Radiation Island transports players to a mysterious island where they must battle radioactive undead, scavenge for food, build shelters, and find treasures, all while looking for a way to solve the puzzle of the island to escape and return to the real world.
Players will need to hunt down resources to cook food, build weapons, and craft tools, which are necessary to survive the hordes of undead and dangerous forest animals during the ongoing day/night cycle. There are also abandoned villages and military compounds to explore to uncover the island’s secrets.
Follow your own path in an environment of breathtaking beauty and gigantic scope. Explore huge forests inhabited by dangerous wolves, bears and mountain lions. Investigate abandoned villages and old military compounds where zombies guard vital tools, weapons and clues to the secrets of this world. You can even swim and dive, if you can avoid the hungry crocodiles.
Hunt wild animals, fish or gather fruits to overcome hunger. Mine for resources and craft weapons, tools and basic vehicles. Find hidden treasures, equipment and fire arms to prevail in a world full of perils: radiation, anomalies, harsh weather and enraged zombies.
Our sister site TouchArcade reviewed the iOS version of Radiation Island when it came out, finding it visually stunning and a “stupid value” with a lot of replay potential. “It’s a massive, and immensely enjoyable experience.”
Radiation Island for Mac can be downloaded from the Mac App Store for $2.99. [Direct Link]
