Death Stranding Mobile Knockoffs Are Now A Thing, Apparently
Death Stranding is a game where no matter how much we see, we still have no clue what’s actually going down. Is Norman Reedus the greatest package delivery man/babysitter in a post-apocalyptic world? What’s up with Mads Mikkelsen resurrecting dead people? Why does the rain make people old? These questions still linger within most of us as to what kind of craziness awaits us in a game from an un-shackled Hideo Kojima. Death Stranding doesn’t really have a firm release date other than that’ll come before the 2020 Olympics, so it may be quite some time before we can ACTUALLY see what kind of madness we are in for, but we may have an odd mobile game to tide us over.
In the grand tradition of Mario Clones and games like 2015’s X-War Clash of Zombies, Death Stranding has its own Mobile knockoff in the form of “Deadly Standing” from our friends at Sky Patrol. The game is a humdrum survival experience that has players use on-screen joystick controls to move, drive vehicles, and shoot the distinctly colorless “Handprint” monsters shown in the trailers. What is probably the best thing to come out of this game’s existence is not from the product itself, rather its description on the Google Play store:
You can finally try playing the great genius Kojumbo. Everyone knows Kojumbo genius. Therefore, the game is brilliant. There was a global catastrophe. The big explosion changed the familiar world and the water began to go away. All marine animals are stranded. Death spread all over the planet. There were strange dark creatures. The birth rate of children has stopped, but there is a small ray of hope in the form of a new child over the past many years.
Mankind will have to protect this child at the cost of his life. You’re a former prisoner and you have to take over this baton. You have a flask with a baby and you need to protect it from dark creatures. Survive, eliminate the danger, flee, hide. Find the necessary means for protection and movement. The car will make your life much easier.”
You can experience the genius of Kojumbo for yourself by downloading the game from Google Play to your devices now, the game is free with ad-support. What are some of your favorite mobile game ripoffs? Let us know in the comments below and follow us on Twitter!
