Survival 456 But It’s Impostor is a free pop culture-inspired strategy game for devices running Android. The game takes heavy inspiration from multiple pop culture phenomena by the games from Squid Game, along with the characters from Among Us and the opportunity to unlock skins like the Joker as you play.
Pop culture references have become an important means of communication, but if you’d prefer a mobile strategy game that stands independently on its own virtual feet, try Kraken - Puzzle Squid Game. Supreme Stickman Battle Fight and Game of Thrones: Conquest are other great alternatives.
The squid games are among us
Survival 456 follows the same premise as Squid Game. You compete in childhood Korean games, try to win at all costs and face elimination. The only real difference is that, instead of the classic Squid Game characters clad in green tracksuits, you play as a character from Among Us. Your character is fully customisable, and as you complete levels, you can even unlock bonus skins.
You are participant number 456. Your objective is to get to the end of each game, and the piggy bank, with all your limbs intact. It won’t be easy, as you use patience, logic and general skill to beat the other participants and keep yourself alive. Play games like tug of war, Dalgona cookie carving and the worldwide favourite Red Light, Green Light.
This game holds its own as a good strategy game partly because of its graphics. It doesn’t feel like a cheap copy or a poor imitation. It is presented like a fully-fledged survival mobile strategy game. The graphics are smooth, with minimal lag even on low-end devices running Android 4.4 Kitkat.
The colours in Survival 456 aren’t overly saturated and lend themselves, along with the overall design, to a smooth, low-impact mobile gaming experience. The controls of Survival 456 are easy to master and require little more than a basic understanding of how to use touchscreen layouts. The game will get repetitive after a good while, as most games in this genre will, but it’ll keep you entertained and looking for the next item unlocks.
A good, small mobile game?
Survival 456 ticks many boxes when it comes to mobile gaming. It has a small download size, smooth compatibility with most Android operating systems, well-designed graphics and games that are sure to keep you entertained. Of course, it’s just another title that falls in the latest Squid Games trend, so it’s worth playing if you’re into that scene.
