Bad controls
Based_stacks on 7/18/2018
The controls ruin the game. The tap to walk is bad because it just makes you attack half the time. If you hold and drag to walk you have to stop to attack...Really holding the game back.
R.I.P. Dead Island
GoodyTwoShoesNotTaken on 7/17/2018
Horrible controls. Frustrating. Don’t let the Dead Island name fool you. This is a cash-in on a franchise name. If this is the future of the Dead Island franchise, I’m done. Not worth the download time.
Romerox6 on 7/17/2018
This game is Good to pass the time.
RiverMonster01 on 7/17/2018
Can’t open crates after they’ve been unlocked fix plz
It’s a trap!
seancassidy999 on 7/17/2018
I haven’t seen a good TD game on iOS for a very long time. And it’s a good one. The strategy aspect is well designed. Of course, it’s a pay to win game, which unfortunately means you’re either rich or playing in 5 minute spurts. So... not really a game, in my view. A game is something you can play for as long as you want. And here’s the rub. There are two buttons that instantly spend gems during gameplay... RIGHT WHERE YOUR LEFT THUMB IS FRANTICALLY TAPPING WHILE ZOMBIES ARE AFTER YOU. Gems are the microtransaction currency. Yes, kids. This game is designed to make you accidentally spend your real money on grenades and soda cans that you didn’t want and don’t need. And you probably won’t even notice.
A Nice Dead Island Throwback
AmishHacker on 7/17/2018
I loved Dead Island and Riptide despite its flaws so Dead Island Survivors is a nice return to Banoi with many of the same characters and same environments as the original games. It’s a nice mix of tower defense with hack and slash that has kept me entertained for quite a while now. I’m even inspired to possibly reinstall the originals and play them again. However, the game is not without its quirks. It would be nice to have a zoom option when the hordes attack but I assume the designers limited the FOV to give the sense of a “fog of war”. Micro transactions abound but it’s possible to play the game effectively without having to buy rubies or resources if you’re strategic and patient with your gameplay.
Lags after 2 levels
Krypton1an on 7/16/2018
This was a very fun game for the first 2 levels. Then, it lags and gets very choppy—almost unplayable. Shame, I was really looking forward to finishing this game.
Don’t get it

Make Playable Offline
Monroe_Scott_Combs on 7/16/2018
And more people would play, buy currency, and more.
Great but
Miabuelaesun21 on 7/16/2018
I love the Defense/Strategy games and this one is in the top on my choice but my problem is that there are only 4 slots to open suitcases.... but only 1 at a time unless you spend $$$ for GEMs that are needed to speed up it up. That means play 4 times and wait for 2hours , 4hours , 8hours etc.....for something that might be good (upgrades,money,new stuff) for a suitcase to open OR spent more $$$ for more GEMS. Other than that, the game is great.
GiggyHorn on 7/14/2018
I give this game 4stars out of5 for the disconnection all the time I have to restart it.. extremely painfully slow on upgrades and suitcases but other then that the gameplay is a ton of fun..
tasered rat on 7/14/2018
It’s a good game, sure a little slow but it’s free!
Tower Defense ( BruhMonJee )
BruhMonJee on 7/14/2018
This Game great to pass time but it’s not a Survival Game like the tittle says, it’s a Tower Defense Game and if you don’t like those then you’ll definitely not like this because the only difference between your normal Tower Defense Game is that the enemy’s are Zombies. This Game is good at bringing the typical Dead Island look with the starting character Sam B and the overall design of the Game as well but the feel isn’t there whatsoever. I thought this game would’ve been like Grim Soul which is a Survival Game here on iOS that is displayed in a diagonal top down setting like this Game is but Grim Soul is a Semi-Open World Game that has customization options and a serious point of survival while this Game is not an Open World Game, it’s a Stage by Stage Game that has a 3 Star tally attached to it based on your performance and only has default based customization options along side no serious point of survival. It’s a good try tho, just not good enough for the disappointment us serious Survival Game junkies like myself feel after finding all this out. 3 Stars ✨ - BruhMonJee ( #DJ #Entertainer #Producer on #SoundCloud - Media Chillaxer and Social Activist on #Twitter - @BruhMonJee and #Instagram - BruhMonJee and BRUHcorp. - Serious Couch Potato on #XBOX - GT: BruhMonJee and Mobile - Reviews on #iTunes #AppStore and XBOX) •— Soon to be on —•
Cool game
Marcel IV on 7/14/2018
It’s cool, I mean my only gripe is that you have to wait so long to unlock the chest, or you can play but then you may need them cards to upgrade your person or weapons. I don’t know. It seems to me that you want people to spend money on the gems or whatever otherwise you have to wait hours (sometime 8 hours for the good one) to unlock a chest. I do like the game though so 3.5 stars from me which puts you at 4 because I have no choice

How do you accept a friends invite??
Last update ruined my game!
PrincessLeiaOrgana07 on 7/14/2018
Super fun game but since the last update the game is sooooo slow and continues to disconnect from the server! Also... 3 and 8 hours to open a suitcase is kind of ridiculous, please shorten the time so we can play longer each day.
Am stuck
Buchan54 on 7/14/2018
Thanks to the game I cannot move on because of a chest am supposed to open but I can’t
Great Game but more pay wall
ChaoticReview on 7/14/2018
I really do enjoy this game but I hate how this and other games have these “loot crate timers” and having to buy workers just to open more than one.Progression in this game seem fairly ok thought but getting new characters doesn’t matter unless you can get enough cards to upgrade then to do some sort of damage.I found this out on the second island which is terrible the card upgrades are ok but when the campaign gives you a free person they should at least give you enough cards to upgrade it. At least in the beginning of the game End game I wouldn’t do this how ever because things are supposed to be more difficult to get and more rewarding, with that being said I feel little to no satisfaction for winning because my reward is a suit case that I have to wait to open.All that being said the core gameplay is really
Has potential
Arkainos on 7/13/2018
Starts out as a really fun game and has the potential to become amazing. Here is the cons that should be addressed: I get that this is a company and you want to make money but gems should not be so imbedded that in order to progress at a reasonable rate you must purchase them. The chest times are 3 hours or more each and workers are extremely expensive. You may get lucky every 4 hours and get two island missions that only award 4 gems each. Sorry but that is just ridiculous. The character movement is a bit wonky too. Sometimes my Zara runs backwards or gets stuck in a certain spot on the map. Hopefully you guys will change some things around and your player base might become huge and still profitable with a more reasonable platform. Update: On island #6 and game has become almost unplayable with constant lag and disconnects. Fix your servers please and I’ll bring my rating back up some.
Close to good
Supermanskidbrother on 7/13/2018
So it’s a pretty fun game, very slow paced. Its got tons of bugs right now. The game is very laggy even with great connection, the moves only work 30% of the time. The cash flow is a major issue. It’s super hard to upgrade stuff even in the beginning. With a little work this game could be worth it
I’m glitched
wulfmanwolf on 7/13/2018
When I was using my data I was opening a chest but it was taking to long so I closed the app and reopened it, but now there’s no chest and I stuck in the dialogue we’re it says to open a chest, even though there’s something in my collection that’s new. I need help.
Horrible timers and pay wall.
Jryan03 on 7/13/2018
When you hit the 3rd or fourth island you have to wait hours upon hours to wait for loot boxes to open. Idk if it’s cause I haven’t made it far enough but it seems like the game is completely solo. Just all around a terrible game. Do not download save yourself time and possibly money. If you spend money on this game it really isn’t getting you anywhere but the next island where you do the same thing over again.
vesli222 on 7/13/2018
always has network error
Was fun but now stuck in the reward screen
TheDeagler on 7/12/2018
The range is good... Until you get stuck on the island progress screen which keeps popping up as soon as you close it. Pretty useless game if you can't play 😢
Should be in Beta
Swamp_Donkeys on 7/12/2018
*Update* requested to have my account restarted over a week ago, finally started getting into the game and getting somewhere, and they finally reset my game, after I made it places!!! Obviously didn’t test this enough bc they hardly explain anything, took me ages to realize how to go back to previous islands, and now I can’t find out how to replicate. Pretty bland bc you rarely change maps, a lot of things are locked behind huge pay walls, or it’s too difficult. On the off chance that you’re doing well, you may be able to just let the turrets kill the zombies for you, and just farm easy.
Lame cash grab
Peloquin1981 on 7/12/2018
Judging by the high ratings a LOT of people don’t mind spending a LOT of real money on this game. The simplistic gameplay is just bland, the forcing of micro transactions on top of that is even worse, and I just can’t understand how many people must be sinking money into such a weak game. What a waste of what could have been a cool little dead island game.
Complete Trash
Nickão on 7/12/2018
I would give it 0 stars if I could! So d@mn boring! You can’t build defenses while waiting for cases to open! (Unless you open your wallet) honestly don’t waste your time!
I’m in my 30s, Game went from easy to overwhelming, and I spent money
Willingandchillingnyc on 7/12/2018
It was fun, easy and slow. However once normal mode came around it became overwhelmingly difficult to the point I cannot win the game and I’m in my 30s, I played plenty of strategic games. I spent money because I do support good games, the pace of the game is really slow, I’m fine with that. It’s just a huge instant change in difficulty, I spent 1 hour trying different combinations and I still cannot win that one, first normal game. Don’t waste your money on this game...
Dead island
NurseNae13 on 7/12/2018
So far so okay Pros so far 1) easy but not too easy 2) don’t have to check in every hour or so to survive 3) main story characters are in this yo Sam B! 4) graphics are superb my cons are 1) too much money to level up ( real$) 2) luggage openings take too long 3) no actual story line/Mission progress 4)cannot zoom out while dealing with a horde Please fix this and don’t ruin one of my all time favorite games
This is retarded and rushed
jotho2922 on 7/11/2018
This game has too many bugs and it won’t even let me finish the first mission
Very fun
Jer-bear27 on 7/11/2018
Very fun and creative. Spent nothing and still enjoy it.
It’s not working
dpontocom on 7/11/2018
I don’t now why but it’s not working on my iPhone
Blxckxllx on 7/11/2018
It takes so long to progress through cases so I don’t see myself playing daily. More like 5 minutes a week
Andy tha bau5 on 7/11/2018
They couldn’t handle the 3rd installment of their space game so they decided to ruin zombies instead? What a shame, I used to like Dead Island too. This isn’t worth downloading, just a basic tower defense ripoff with terrible fake accents and a pay to win aspect.
Pay to win at its finest
DixiesDaddy on 7/11/2018
Mildly entertaining but by the 4th or 5th island, it’s either pay to win or wait weeks and weeks to get strong enough to function. Meh.
I love it!
Gigglebot on 7/11/2018
I love this because I love zombie games and I finally get a good mobile one 5 stars for sure!
Ros for life on 7/11/2018
It’s way to slow and the wait time is so long you can’t even upgrade multiple thing at once cmon this is a dead island game for crying out loud at least make it good
I like it.
Trustin C. on 7/11/2018
I really don’t like having to wait for chests to open and the time it takes to open them is a little bit harsh, otherwise I really enjoy the game. The chests slow you down, but in my opinion that’s good because you’ll be encouraged to wait for the chests and not just play the game for a really long time in one session. This makes the game last longer before you complete it.
Wish it was playable!
Havok Zangana on 7/11/2018
This game looks great. But, slow, laggy and crashes that much that I deleted the game two times, and this will be the third and the last. At least they should have had lower graphics setting!
Love it❤️
paytonisalezbo on 7/10/2018
It’s really fun and a lot easier than the real game
The pay wall is real
WillemDafoe on 7/10/2018
The game on its own is okay. Decent tower defense game with a tap and click hero. Game has cards and leveling similar to a clash game. All this is okay, but the need to spend money is apparently clear and early. Boxes are ridiculously long wait times for little benefits. The worker system in the game is very slow paced. Ive played for about 2 days and have become pretty bored of the game already. Maybe if they add in a login event type thing, lower box timers, adjust it so you don’t use a worker for boxes, this would certainly help speed the pacing of the game. Honestly I would suggest adding some more substance to the game. There is nothing that sets the game apart and I would expect more from this title.
Eminex33 on 7/10/2018
The voice acting is soooo bad lol
Great game for fun
Liu Kang MKX on 7/10/2018
Perfect to kill the time
Good enough
ionicreviews on 7/10/2018
It’s a good game no need to make a big deal about it but the third person mixed with clash of clan is a good experience
i love fork knight lol on 7/10/2018
So so I downloaded this game because I thought it was a freestyle game but the thing is I never got to the main part it all ways crash and I have the newest iPhone 10 so don’t download
It’s ok but funky controls
KatKat120001 on 7/10/2018
This game is a ok game and is a good time waster but the controls really aren’t that good and get annoying really fast.
Effort put in the wrong game
eevee5063 on 7/10/2018
Yes it’s a fun game playing with the old gang with some new faces and weapons and crazy defense towers that look like someone with Limited supplies at their together but we’ve been waiting on Dead Island 2 for a long time now so plz deep Silver and who ever you have working on it with you plz give us Dead island 2 we know you can do it
Not the worst!
Cabreview on 7/10/2018
If you want a friend, my player name is: spesscarp It is probably true that this game is pay-to-win. At least if you want to go anywhere quickly. However if you are ultra patient and find gore and ragdolls amusing, then this is a good distraction. Buy the cheapest bundle offered for a goodish character and have fun.
Great game locked behind timers and IAP
Zaemonus on 7/10/2018
This is actually a really refreshing entry in the tower defense genre. The traps and heroes are a lot of fun and the gameplay leaves you hungry for more. However there is a huge glaring issue that prevents me from having much fun with the game.. The timers! Ugh.. Why do you companies keep doing the loot crate nonsense?? Whenever you win a battle you get a loot crate which takes a minimum of 3 hours to open (they also have 8 hour ones). You can only work on opening one at a time unless you buy more workers (500 IAP currency which = $5, per worker). This essentially means I can only play 1 round every 3 hours. Why do you companies do this? Yes u severely neuter a games potential to place it behind a timer paywall so that you can gouge cash whales and little kids that their parents don't know any better. I would easily pay a premium price to do away with the timers, because it is a very fun game without them. As it stands I will be deleting this game because the hours of waiting isn't worth the minutes of gameplay before waiting hours again. And I sure am not paying money for these predatory IAPs, I will never support that. This is why people don't take mobile gaming seriously. Pokemon GO has made literal boatloads of money because they let their consumers have fun in the game and be excited about the game without IAP. If you make a great game that people can enjoy without spending money they are more likely to get invested and one day spend money on it. If they made it where a loot crate took 20 minutes for an easy crate and 40 minutes for a hard, and unlock all the extra workers for $5, then you would have a much more engaging and rewarding experience.
Best toilet game
undeadbryce on 7/10/2018
This game is amazing I love the dead island franchise I grew up with so I support any game they come out with its not a good as dead island or dead island riptide but it’s free and not bad I’m happy to see Sam B again
