Survival sequence

Video game concept

Includes one or more sequences where the player must simply survive for a short time.


The first video game about Survival sequence was released on March 31, 1998.

Deep Silver, Blizzard Entertainment and Activision has published most of these games

* Timed sequence

* Escape sequence
Usually there's a notice that a transporter is inbound in ~3 minutes and the player must survive until it arrives. Player is usually confined in a small area with limited resources and so forth. Player has no way to progress other than simply staying alive, killing opponents has no effect besides slightly improving chances of survival but the enemies likely (abnormally) respawn endlessly.

Note that if this is finished by killing, destroying or disabling the opposition, then consider it a case of elimination sequence.
