The original Lost in Blue won a legion of fans with its clever setting and use of the Nintendo DS’s touch screen capabilities. For Lost in Blue 2, Konami has worked to build on the basis of the original game to create an even deeper, more involving sequel. Once again, the player is cast as a young man who, along with a female friend, is washed up on the beach of an apparently deserted island. Working together, the pair must search for a way off the island, but also survive the many dangers that lay ahead. The game has been designed to force the player into thinking about how they would survive in such an environment. Initially, this involves finding food and weapons, before exploring the island. But, as in real life, exploration is tiring, so the pair must rest, drink water to avoid dehydration, and find further means of sustenance – especially as the mountainous nature of the island also necessitates the heroes climbing steep rock faces and hills.
