60 Seconds! from developer Robot Gentleman is an extremely clever strategy survival game that was originally released on desktop way back in 2015. The premise is that the nuclear apocalypse is on its way, and you have exactly 60 seconds to rush around your house and gather up any supplies you might need as well as round up your family members and head down into the bomb shelter. The twist is that your house layout is randomly generated each game, so you never quite know where things are and, well, if you can’t find little Timmy within that 60 seconds because you don’t know which room he’s in then I guess that means more rations for the rest of you down in the bomb shelter, eh? This initial 60 second resource-gathering mode gets your heart pounding, but it’s once you’re down in the bomb shelter where things get really interesting. This is when things turn more strategic as you make decisions based on rationing out your food and supplies, heading up to the surface to scout things out, and more.
Like I mentioned, it’s a really clever take on a post apocalyptic survival game, and Robot Gentleman brought that clever experience to touchscreen mobile devices in the fall of 2016. Since that time numerous new content updates were released for 60 Seconds! on mobile, and its space-themed follow-up 60 Parsecs! also made its way to the touchscreen in late 2019. Now Robot Gentleman has announced that their remastered version of the original game, 60 Seconds! Reatomized, will also be heading to mobile devices next week. Here is its launch trailer from when it hit desktop a couple of years ago.
60 Seconds! Reatomized features the same core concept of the original game but with completely refreshed visuals which include high resolution assets and redrawn 2D art, a majorly improved user interface, a new interactive menu, and plenty of new content. This includes the new Survival Challenges which are “unique, short storylines which will put your survival skills to the test!”, a new way to play an extended storyline that spans multiple playthroughs, a new relationship system, new achievements, and more. I really enjoyed the original 60 Seconds! on mobile so I’m really interested to play this updated and improved version, which has garnered incredibly good reviews since its desktop launch in 2019. 60 Seconds! Reatomized is available for pre-order on the App Store right now at a price of $3.99 and available for pre-registration on the Google Play Store here, and its expected release date is next week on May 25th.
