Lifeline: Whiteout is a mobile title from 3 Minute Games that’s been around for some time as a paid title. As the game’s makers describe it, you are the last line of communication to a lost adventurer who has no memory of how he found his way to a frozen wasteland. In this game, your choices will determine what happens next in the story, and each decision could be a literal game-changer; you can always replay the game once you’re done completing a play-through, and see how a different set of choices would impact the story. As such, this game continues the tradition of the Lifeline series, but in here, 3 Minute Games is introducing the new character of V. Adams – that’s the mysterious adventurer whom you’ll be helping, hopefully with the right choices.
This is a unique mobile game as it’s mostly text-based in nature, but given its ostensible complexity, you may be wondering how you can go about things and make the most out of each choice that you make. Read on, as we will be giving you some pretty cool Lifeline: Whiteout tips, cheats and tricks that could help you have the best possible ending, regardless of your decisions.
1. Use Your Instinct
Now this might sound like a rather odd piece of advice for a mobile game, but just to reiterate what we said in the game overview, Lifeline: Whiteout is mostly text-based, meaning it doesn’t rely on physics or hand-eye coordination or the quickness and precision of your moves. The only thing dictating the flow of the game is your decision-making, and in this game, it’s best to rely on your instinct. There is no real right or wrong decision, and if we may give you a teeny-tiny spoiler of what happens to V. Adams, he won’t die if your choice isn’t the best one available. It will just take you longer to complete the game, and that shouldn’t be a big deal in the grand scheme of things.
2. The Game Flows In Real-Time
It’s quite an interesting feature, and one that may or may not work to your advantage. In fact, it’s a game that shouldn’t take up time that can be spent on more pressing concerns in your day-to-day life. You may often be asked to go online again after a certain period of time, so there’s no point in sticking around with the app turned on when you’re specifically asked to wait for a couple hours or so. But with this in mind, you should be taking note of the times when you should be logging in again, so that no time is wasted while you’re online.
3. Play The Game Normally
At the end of the day, this is what you will want to do, instead of referring to cheat sheets or walkthroughs. Of course, a walkthrough could spoon-feed you with the things you need to do to guide V. Adams in the best possible way, but you have to keep in mind that Lifeline: Whiteout is, like the other Lifeline games, very story-intensive. Play the game like you normally would, don’t “rage-quit” if things don’t go your way, and if you must, avoid the spoilers! Think about how you may feel if somebody let you in on the ending of a TV show or movie before you even watch it.
4. Replay Value
In relation to the above tip and what we said in the overview, you have the option to replay the game once you’re done finishing the story. Take advantage of this opportunity, and see what will happen if you make a different choice than the ones you made in the earlier play-through. And don’t worry about trusting your gut feel; this time, play the game with the intention of doing things completely differently. Remember as well that some of the sections will have you choosing from more than just two options. That’s more possible outcomes, and more interesting twists that may take place as you give the game another whirl and see what you should have been doing differently. Who knows – you might finish the story faster in your second (or third, or fourth, and so on) time around!
