A family of games evolving from Julian Courtland Smith's original 1982 game, "Survive!".
Each edition has slight to considerable variations on the basic mechanics of Survive!, though all titles share the overall disaster theme of escaping from a doomed island and attempting to reach safety through waters rich with adversarial fauna.
"An underwater volcano has erupted and an island it sinking into the sea! Unless they escape in time-all the inhabitants are doomed!
In this game, try to lead your "people" from the central island to safety on any of the four islands nearby. you can get there by boat or by swimming. But it will be a treacherous journey! You'll have to ward off sea-serpents, sharks, and whales as well as stay one step ahead of the ever-approaching water.
When the game ends, whoever has the most survivor points is the winner".
