One of the thirteen games developed by FredBear Games Ltd., ‘The Bonfire: Forsaken Lands’ has cemented its place among all the survival simulation games of the present time. This game doesn’t match the level as set by Clash Royale, Clash of Clan, and Ace of Empires. However, the creators have managed to make it super addictive on the first trial itself.
Speaking of the game, a lone man far across the sea ends up on land and begins his journey for survival. The name “Bonfire” is very symbolic as it lighted for the first time on a collection of the initial woods. It is from here that the actual game begins. Our duty is to strategically assign the different tasks to the workers who approach our hut in return of food. As our resources increase, we can hire more men and create assets on our lands such as farmhouses, workshops, and storage facilities. Not only the workers, but we are also even visited by strangers. If we help them by providing food, they leave behind certain amenities which indirectly increases our resources. Every night there is an attack on our place by wild animals. To fight against them, you have to create weapons from your resources in the workshop as well as assign the guarding duties to a few of your workers. This way, by each passing day, you march closer towards making a strong civilization.
The trial version of the game is available free for seven in-game days, and after that it mandatory to buy a full version. The price of The Bonfire is comparatively less than other paid survival simulation games. There are no ads present in both the version which makes the gaming experience even better. However, there are a few bots that we may trouble a gamer. Sometimes, a particular command is not accepted by a single touch on the screen. The process of assigning weapons is too difficult to follow for first-time users. Also, unlike Clash of Clans, the multiplayer option is not available for this game.
In relation to 93 MB game size, the graphics are just amazing! Snow loaded magnificent topography with minimalist aesthetics is praiseworthy. Each model of characters, habitats, and weapons look impressive. Unlike Clash of Clans, this game doesn’t take a long time to build the surroundings.
If you’re someone who loves to make independent decisions and assign certain tasks, then you will definitely love this game. As it is not a multiplayer game, it challenges you to make certain decisions leading to progress or decline of your civilization. The dynamic feature of the game is coupled so well with the realistic aspect too. During the gameplay, when the weather is harsh and strong winds are blowing rapidly, you will experience a decrease in the work efficiency of all the workers. Also, the music that plays during the background is soothing and apt as per the nature of the game.
