Stranded Without A Phone 1.33
the author of this app says:
Stranded Without A Phone is a desert island survival game set in the Space HoRSE universe.
Four passengers on a space ship were on a mission to colonize a new planet when the ship crash landed on a planet that is almost completely covered by ocean. You are the only survivor - an upper-management executive from the Decoo corporation, the company that sponsored the original mission.
Now you must use your survival skills to stay alive long enough to get rescued. Build shelter, find food and drink, and collect salvageable parts from the wreckage that wash ashore. Use the parts to build a space radio and call for a rescue team to win the game.
Search for natural resources, then use them to create other items using various combinations.
- Familiar RPG-style inventory system.
- Over 70 different items.
- Randomly generated map with each new game.
- Day/night cycle.
- Rain storm weather effects.
- Boar hunting & trapping.

Overall I'm having fun with this game and am impressed with the whole setup/gameplay. Graphics and sounds are good enough. Presentation is decent. The game is interesting. A worthwhile game. For $2, I recommend it, I give it an 8/10.
Stranded is a unique addition the offerings in the App Store... The game's excellent graphics and sounds are noteworthy, and the controls are easy and intuitive to use.

*** Hints ***
-Search dirt areas for small boulders to build a fire pit.
-Use coconuts as an immediate source of nutrition and hydration, but also find fish in shallow water.
-Boar meat provides the best nutrition and health.
-Search beaches often for useful items from the shipwreck.

My apologies go out to earlier buyers of the game that ran into a bug in the 1.32 update that would crash if running iOS 3.1.3. Apparently Apple doesn't actually test on all versions of their OS like you'd expect during the 2 week approval process. Note to self: Get an old iPhone device for future testing.
What's New in version 1.33
Fixed launch bug for devices still running iOS earlier than 4.0.
- Requires iOS 3.1.3 or later
