In Rules of Survival your character parachutes on to a massive island unarmed along with 300 other trigger hungry players. The goal is to find a weapon and kill anyone that moves. Its not as easy as it sounds. Loot weapons and gear from building and watch your back.

Rules of Survival ran a bit slow with all settings on high. So cranking them down helped my frame rates and it still looked fairly decent. Sometimes its hard to know exactly how to login becaues the barcode screen will be unfocused behind the launch screen. So an Alt+Tab can help to focus it. Other than that, have fun with all the banner ads. If you can last longer than 3 minutes it can actually be fun.
