I Rely On Poverty To Sweep Through Survival Games


Links are NOT allowed. Format your description nicely so people can easily read them. Please use proper spacing and paragraphs.

Xiao Lan was a pauper who couldn’t do anything that required money.

On the road after work, he was engulfed by darkness and opened his eyes to a frightening and dangerous survival game.


The app that can’t be deleted; the people it locked on to were unable to escape except through death.

Ordinary players: Save me, I don’t want to die!!!

Xiao Lan: Sorry, the phone is too broken and it froze. Can you wait a little longer?

A hand reached out from inside an old-fashioned television; the people caught would enter its world.

Ordinary players: Ahhhhhhh! What to do?!

Xiao Lan: According to my many years of experience repairing old household appliances, it seems that this model can be opened like this…


Finally, the bosses gathered around Xiao Lan one day, prepared to deal with this (game) bug.

But they saw him roll up his sleeves and stride forward on long legs, and he beat up the bosses until they doubted their ghostly births.

Xiao Lan: Do you think an overtime worker’s night travels are for nothing?

Luo: Mister is always this cute.

Passer-by (shivering): Isn’t your definition of cute a little strange…

I MTL'd the Novel because I couldn't wait for the TL'ed Chapters and I was right.. One of the best books I have read.

It's funny, engaging and is funny. You never feel bored and the plot is also kind of refreshing. I loved the book and although there are some parts where I am not satisfied with - No book is Perfect. But this book is damn near it.

It's a great novel which is funny and keeps your interest.

This story has slow romance, but when the mc-ML got together it's really good, a bit heart-warming and I can't help smiling. Also, some scenes are really hilarious!! XD And most of all, I like the chapters near the end!! I get to know the reason in some of my unanswered questions. I also feel bad (sad) to those who died in MC's father generation 😭 I wish that the extras were continuation of the story instead of a different stories with the same chara involved. The story is kinda... more>> unique, esp the skill in which poverty makes u stronger 😂 and also the rest of the players skill XD Though the game in this infinite flow is not as ingenious as earth is online nor card room (and some instances here made me a little bored), the game and story is still good and won't make me u disappointed!!!

I like the MC hardworking and not too OP. But I dislike his indecisiveness about his feelings.

MC didn't have time to fall in love before due to poverty so his sexuality is unknown. I find it a little annoying how he kept ignoring his feelings and always escaped from the ML. It's not like he was straight from the start, rather it was "unknown" due to his busyness


The ML has characteristics of 2nd ML, protecting MC from the sidelines (though in this novel, he protects MC directly). <<less

I'm giving it a 5 star, because I'm biased, as usual. I found the novel very enjoyable so far. Though I admit to speed-reading some of the arcs where they're in the horror games. Most of the arcs do manage to grab my attention back, and the different people they interact with add to the entertainment.

The MC is very admirable and lovable. I like his straight-forward personality and his various life skills. He's not really omnipotent - he had to rely on Luo or game items to get out of... more>> trouble. But he's resourceful and has a good sense for danger, so he's a sensible protagonist, which is especially important in horror.

Luo, the ML, is a butler type. His backstory isn't known yet, but there are hints here and there. He's also not omnipotent and has his debuffs, but he's still helpful to the best of his abilities. He has a cat form, which is a major plus in my (and the MC's) eyes.

The relationship between MC and ML is slow, but very gentle and smoothly progressing. It's the thing I enjoy the most in this novel, to be honest. It seems Luo is patiently waiting for Xiao Lan to depend on him, he's not pushy or aggressive at all. <<less

Wow! What can I say. This is actually a fun kind of survival themed story. What I mean by fun is that the MC is poor who cannot be more poorer than a poor boss in the survival game. He has no home, no car, no deposit. Such a poor ghost (not literally). The skill that he'd obtained is suitable for his condition. The comedy is great, I love it. This is much more of a relaxing type of survival game novel when compared to others such as ' kaleidoscope... more>> of death' which is kind of more serious one. It doesn't mean that there is no death in this novel. There is but it is some thing that already happened. You will know when you read it. The flow is great, not boring at all. The story revolves around MC and ml, not too much conflicts. I'm really satisfied with main chapters expect for the extras. The author is so strict. Come on! Since it is written on how they can meet in other world where there is no survival game give them a real happy ending will ya! <<less

Has both entertaining/ engaging protagonist and side characters. It also has a pretty solid plot as well.

Binged read it immediately and I gotta say, another great addition to the genre of multi-world survival.

When the hint of the "past plays a big role" tag was introduced, I honestly didn't think it would be something I would vibe that well with, but it was nicely executed.

Yes. YES to the complicated emotion XL has for his father. I really like the fact that though he understood his reasons, he also knows that XC can be a good person but not a good father/ husband.



Side characters are A++++

The Wang Brothers!!!

And many, many more.

The story is very engaging. Main characters and side characters have their own story, its making you feel close to them. IMO, each character has solid background which make their personality believable.

It has almost the same main plot as other reality game novel but this one is a little bit different.

The game kinda has less gameplay. Even a rookie player, they only have to play once a week. As for a senior player, they only required to play the game once every half year.

So the MC timeline is kinda fast. In a few ch, 2 years ady past. This because MC rarely voluntary entered a copy.


Try read one. Loved the story! <<less

a good addition to the infinite flow/survival game genre. The MC, especially at the start, is funny and the story engaging, plus the MC has a normal IQ, which is a relief. It dragged a little in the middle and I got pretty impatient with the MC blushing over every little thing and running away over and over again, but we all know I don't have much patience with blushing maiden MCs so that's not a surprise. MC gets OP pretty quickly thanks to his skill but there are still... more>> times when he has no choice but to run away so it's not too unbelievably strong,

though he does skip through the levels extremely fast; going from newbie to middle-tier in just a few games and then from middle to advanced in something like three games. Also, he has the very OP ML who is also a total workaround to his poverty requirement. Even though the ML is technically the MCs prop at the start he makes tons of money irl and it never affects the MCs poverty skill.


nice read and a good ending. <<less
