Darwin's game is yet another survival/battle royal manga, but what makes it special? Well the conditions and setting. Yet while it is still to early to compare this with other examples of this genre, it is already apparent that this manga has lots of potential. Though it is full of cliched character and unnecessary fan service still the premise makes it shine and gives a hope for future.

This starts quite suddenly as the protagonist is invited to a mobile social networking game/mmorpg and he decides to give this a try. Then the chaos starts as he is thrown into a world of battles, of various read more

Darwin's game is currently new with only a few chapters but looks like it could be awesome, to me it looks like a cross between "Marai Nikki" and "Gantz". A death survival game that involves phones again, but instead a game app, it is psycho with a girl again which helps guide the loser main character through the game. It relates to Gantz as the game may look like its in a different world but it stilll effects the real world's people and enviroment. It also has the same gory like and bloody content as gantz as people just end up dying all around.

Both manga are intense psychological horror and contain a lot of killing.
People who are willing to kill in order to survive.
Both involve a protagonist gaining supernatural abilities

In other words, kill or be killed 
Average boy thrust into a survival game.
Survival game defeating enemies or solving puzzles. 
It started with a harmless-looking game and ended up in blood, desperation, and panic. :REverSAL and Darwin's Game feature what may appear as your conventional death game, albeit the former uses a more scientific approach. Both also have unique types of weaponries used by a vast set of characters. Furthermore, these characters are on constant war not only physically, but also mentally on who to trust or what or whom to believe in.
