App description: This is the "Lite" version of "Stranded Without A Phone", the desert island survival game for the iPhone.

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. In this "Lite" version, you will not be able to find all the necessary parts to be rescued.

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.
- Boar hunting & trapping.

The "Full" version includes more items to find and build, including the ability to be rescued from the island. Also included in the full version are rain storms, berry bushes, night sounds, and a day/night clock. Please buy the full version after you've tried the Lite version.

- The iPhone App Review

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.

I'll be honest, I either need some kind of demo, or already be familiar with the game before I'll pay $5. Even for an iPad game.

I will keep an eye on this, and if the iPod version goes on sale I might pick it up and use it to decide if the iPad version is worth it.
