You are helping Robinson, who came ashore on your island, fight against many hazards. At the beginning, Robinson is not very skillful. With each fight he wins you will improve his abilities, but defeats are also helping to get rid off of his worse habits. However, life on the island is energy-sapping, so that Robinson not only gains experiences during his time there, but also starts aging and tends to get clumsy.
In this game, Robinson is represented as a card stack of different behaviors. You are forced to improve this card stack, so you can collect the cards at the end of the game to give Robinson the best chance to win against the tough pirates!
The App allows you to play the game on all 4 levels and also includes a new fifth level as special challenge .

Nice addition to my phone card game collection
Never played the board game, but once this clicked with me I was able to enjoy the depth that is not as apparent at first.
My only issue is that it's hard to take the game seriously when I see the main character's face. He looks so ridiculous, haha. He could have a more serious Castaway look or something 😉
One of the best solo games out there!
I own the physical game and this is a gem. I recommend you still get the box game which is the price of about 3 lattes. The app handles all of the shuffling and setup. If you know how to play already, you will understand the app version after your first game. The best way to learn before you get started is read the instruction manual on a PC first. Love this game! Solid mechanics and skill will prevail over luck.
For the developers it would be nice to see when your deck is reshuffled which acts as a mental note that your played cards are now back in play again. Also I tried to see which cards I had played during the green phase and don't think I was able to see them. I was down to the last two cards in the challenge deck and wasn't sure how many of our 5 total starting attack points that make up the starting deck I had played. I wasn't sure if I had what I needed to beat the level 1 card I had chose.
Decent port of a fun solo card game that need UI improvements
As far as solo card games go, Friday is one of the best (up there with the Oniverse series like Onirim). The theme is fun and this is one of my favorite games from that designer, Friedemann Friese (along with one of his newer economic games, Futuropia). However, the UI (User Interface) on this port needs some work. I find that the touch controls are not responsive enough and sometimes I press an arrow or button and I’m unsure if it registered the action (this rarely happens in other apps so I know it is this UI). I know the programmers are working on this so with any luck this might be an issue that will be remedied. I wouldn’t mind a higher resolution interface as well (especially for tablet use).
While the vertical layout of the game works great on my iPhone (when I’m on the move), I much rather prefer playing this game on a tablet when I’m at home. Such is the case, a horizontal layout would really benefit this game. Similar games have adopted that option (Onirim for example) so I know it can be done.
I’ve played this game on an iPad Pro (1st gen), iPhone 5C and XS and haven’t had the game crash once so I can at least attest to it being a stable build.
If you like solo games I would recommend supporting the programmers who are still working on this fun little game and buy it!
