As a huge fan of the Lost TV series, I was really pleased when I found the Shipwrecked game available for Android phones on Google Play and I started to play it immediately. And even though it can’t be compared with a “Lost” experience, the game is colorful and fun and really addictive. However, there are some tips and tricks to consider when playing this game and I am here to share that with you.
So let’s start checking out a Shipwrecked guide below with Shipwrecked tips and tricks that will make your stay on the island a lot more pleasant!
Learn to time actions!
Everything in Shipwrecked requires your survivors to spend some time doing it. Therefore, make sure you time things right and start performing the less time consuming tasks first and leave the long ones for the end, when you can log out. One of my strategies is to assign one of my survivors to a 5 minute task as soon as I get into the game and then start collecting and performing shorter tasks with the other two. Usually, when I am done, I can again use the first survivor for some even longer chores!
Block your survivors!
Trapping your survivors in a small area is a great way to have things move faster for you as they will no longer walk to perform the actions (since they can’t get to that place) and instead they’ll immediately start it from their current position. As an example, you can see the path blocked below and still the action performed:
You should never ignore the debris (the rocks and shells and logs that wash up on the island) EVER and make sure you keep cleaning them regularly to let others take their place. Not only that they give you valuable resources, but also silver, which is the currency used in the game and it is really hard to get!
How to get more silver
As I said, silver is the currency of the game and it’s pretty hard to get. The easiest way to do it is to plant crops and harvest them, so make sure that you constantly do that otherwise you will soon run out of silver!
Don’t get too much ahead of the goals
Shipwrecked is a goal-oriented game, meaning that it should be your goal to only focus on completing these missions. Because if you perform some tasks before they are required by a mission, you will have to do it over again. If usually this doesn’t hurt much, at least retain from cutting too many jungle bits – you will need the swords for the quests!
I have decided to leave the right side of the island for exploration – usually, when you get a mission that requires you to cut some jungle to find something in there, you will find it after the first try. Therefore you can plan the design of your island early on and have things easier to accomplish.
Don’t rush things!
Shipwrecked for Android, just like any other casual / time management game, is not a game to complete fast. You need to invest time and log in regularly in order to get the most out of it. This is actually the best part of it – it can be easily played in short bits during breaks or dead times. So take advantage of this and don’t rush things! There’s really no hurry!
And these are the tips and tricks that I had to share with you in this short but hopefully helpful Shipwrecked guide. If you have other strategies or tips to share with fellow players, don’t hesitate to comment below and let us know about them!
