What is The Tofu Survivor? - Apperance
Play as a Literal Tofu
The Tofu Survivor is a parody of The 4th Survivor, but this time, you play as a huge chunk of Tofu with S.T.A.R.S. beret (which somehow speaks high-pitched Japanese in Osaka-accent).
Designed For Players Wanting More Challenge
Though a joke mission, the Tofu Survivor mode is one of the hardest missions in the game. You're only given a few combat knives, and a couple of herbs. As with the 4th Survivor, there are no item pick-ups as well. Knowing when to use the counter attack will be the key to completing this mode.
Beat The Challenge for Bragging Rights
The Tofu Survivor gives players another chance to show off their survival skills. Challenge yourself to get the best completion time!
