Crimsonland for OS X Now Available

Crimsonland is now available on OS X! Normal Steam features like leaderboards and achievements are naturally supported. The game also supports at least PS4 and PS3 controllers on OS X at the moment. In addition several other brands of modern controllers should work too.

In other news we're also working on the Linux version. We don't have a release date yet since we have Linux controller support to implement and one Linux sound engine to write still but we're getting there!

Great news for OS X gamers: Crimsonland for OS X is now available in the beta branch. To try it, activate the update_beta beta. There's some awesome stuff there like support for Retina Displays and support for game controllers. We've mainly used PS4 controllers as they work out of the box on the OS X. Some controllers might require additional software depending on the model. So, give it a try and give us feedback! Once we've weeded out any bugs in this beta version, we'll go public with the release.

À propos de ce jeu



Thousands of aliens, zombies, giant spiders, mutant lizards, and more are on the attack - can you survive the onslaught? In Crimsonland you will unlock new weapons and perks constantly improving your abilities and arsenal. Your screen will be filled with literally hundreds of monsters and thousands of giblets. Grab your gun and prepare for endless hours of intense top-down shooter fun!

The original Crimsonland was released in 2003. After the game was greenlit at the end of 2013, 10tons decided to give the game a complete tune-up. The brand new 2014 version introduces countless gameplay fixes, a new chapter with new enemies, new perks, and new weapons. On top of that we've done a complete art overhaul!



What are perks? Perks are like talents in an RPG game. You earn XP by killing monsters and with XP you earn levels. After leveling up you get to choose a perk. For example, a perk called Fastloader enables you to reload extremely fast. During a session perks will stack up a and every game will be a bit different. You'll unlock perks during the quest mode after which they become available in the survival game modes.



We've created a huge arsenal of 30 unique weapons ranging from the humble pistol to the mysterious Shrinkifier 5k. The weapons are unlocked by playing the quest mode and they become available in survival game modes as well. The better your arsenal - the better chances you have at scoring higher outside the quest mode.



Crimsonland features up to four player local co-op. All game modes including the quest can be played in co-op mode. There are also separate leaderboards for co-op games so gather your friends and show the internet who wields the gauss shotgun like a pro!



  • Quest mode with six chapters
  • FIVE survival modes: Survival, Rush, Blitz, Weapon Picker, and Nukefism
  • 30 unique weapons
  • 55 awesome perks
  • Steam leaderboards: global and friends
  • Leaderboards for co-op: Gang up on them!
  • Steam achievements & stats
  • Full controller support
  • Up to four player local co-op

Le mode principal est soporifique au possible mais nécessaire pour s’amuser en survie (puisque vous devrez auparavant débloquer armes et perks). Le pire est que les 60 niveaux sont très mal équilibrés et que si vous n’avez pas la chance de voir apparaître telle ou telle arme vous serez bon pour recommencer le niveau ! Une seule arène (avec tout de même quelques variations de couleur), assez peu d’ennemis différents et un personnage au déplacement bien trop lent pour ce type de jeu, on pourrait penser que Crimsonland était un échec total.

Pourtant, une fois les premières heures d’ennui passées (ou les nombreuses pour les fous furieux qui voudraient boucler le mode principal dans les trois difficultés différentes), il faut bien avouer que les cinq modes survie sont variés et addictifs ! Le système de perks est réellement amusant et permet de jouer encore et encore sans avoir l’impression de faire deux fois de suite la même partie. Les armes sont très variées et le mode multi jusqu’à quatre est génial.

Au final, si vous avez la patience de vous ennuyer quelques heures avant de profiter pleinement d’un jeu et que vous aimez les top down shooters, donnez-lui sa chance. Si vous ne correspondez pas à la description précédente vous pouvez passer votre chemin sans regret.

Original Crimsonland (2004) is one of my most favourite games ever. But the Steam version is a serious step backwards. New graphics and not as pretty, new UI is bland and forgettable, and the worst crime of all - the Perks are gone from the quest mode. That's right, they only exist in Survival, which I know some people don't even play.

You would be much better suited by playing the original version 1.9.8.

Let's start with the most important thing. This ISN'T Crimsonland.

You may have distant, fond memories of a little gem of a game called Crimsonland, bearing a striking resemblance to this one, but don't be fooled. That Crimsonland was beautifully designed, with a perfect difficulty curve, perks that allowed you a miniature progression tree through each level, and well balanced stages.

This Crimsonland is not that game. This Crimsonland has NO perks in quest mode, ensuring that each quest is a bland survival exercise. Oddly, they've not rebalanced the levels to account for this, so you'll find that certain levels are just BROKEN. This Crimsonland has been redesigned for controllers, which seems like it ought to be a good move, but the way it's been implemented is hamfisted and poorly thought out.


This Crimsonland isn't the game I loved. That makes me sad.

This game has a lot going for it...but not enough.


Lets start with the positives:

I love the updated graphics, the new perks, the more streamlined leveling system, the ability to have four players at once, and many other details about this reboot of the classic crimsonland. Killing enemies is as fun as ever and almost every weapon is great and feels good for different situations (except you blowtorch!) and has a legitimate strategy. Perks are incredibly important and add a deep aspect of thought to the game (Do I get regeneration to keep my health up or choose fast reloader so I can kill enemies more?) and the sheer addictive nature of the gameplay will keep you hooked. Its a solid title...or should be...

Which leads me to the negatives:

Outside of the story mode this game isn't really as fun as it used to be. They took out a lot of things that made it fun. In solo survival the average player can expect to get to level 8-9 if they get a decent weapon before being absolutely annihilated by the hordes of enemies. If you add friends to the mix the difficulty ramps up even more and you will be lucky if you clear level 6. Its almost a broken level of hard. Theres no fighting it. No matter which perks you pick or which weapons you have the survival mode reaches a certain point early on that just immediately kills you. Your choices feel useless and it becomes kind of a drag when you get the perfect weapon combo with the perfect perks and then you just get slaughtered anyways by the sudden wave of splitting spiders and zombie lords that surround you out of thin air instead of coming out of the sides of the screen like they used to. The previous version of crimsonland slowly spiked the difficulty more and more making the survival last longer. It really felt like you were, you know, surviving?
This version of crimsonland has no such subtlety or flair. They let you gain a couple levels and then just murder you outright with a frustrating amount of enemies that are impossible to fight. Let me put it to you this way. I was the 3rd highest ranking player IN THE WORLD in the previous crimsonland but in this one I can barely top level 10 in solo survival. They have taken one of the greatest and most fun modes of the game and just smashed it and made it unplayable. If they had a difficulty choice I think it could mitigate this. This is the only game I think actually NEEDS an easy mode.

Another thing that is absolutely broken in this game is the enemy spawning system. In the previous crimsonland enemies came out of all 4 sides of the screen giving you a chance to plan ahead. You could see a horde of zombies and decide which way you want to bait them to try and get an opening to dive for that powerup or weapon. You can find the big monster that is spawning little ones and put that sucker down before he overwhelms you.
This crimsonland has destroyed that too. It is quite common now to have enemies spawn on top of you and immediately kill you. Nothing sucks worse than to be 10 minutes into a boss battle and to be killed by a horde of tiny red aliens spawning right on top of you. Or to be doing a survival round with your favorite weapon and perks and to have a lizard king spawn right next to you and one shot you instantly. Its painfully frustrating and can make you want to chuck your keyboard across the room. It has happened to me in almost every mission of this game and is the most common way to die. Some enemies still come out of the sides of the screen, but more than half of them just appear with a flash wherever they feel like regardless of how inconvient it is for you.

So in conclusion, the game is fun but ultimately frustrating and not worth your money. They could have had a solid remake of a fun arcade shooter on their hands but they've instead destroyed it by breaking the difficulty and spawning and made it virtually unplayable. If you do buy this game, you'll discover its fun palls rather quickly because of its major stumbling blocks. It is a shadow of its former self and if you want to play a fun arcade shooter, download the first one online someplace (a few places host it for free) and have yourself a grand old time.

But skip this version. Its just not fun anymore.

unfortunately not as good as the original. unlike the original, perks are not available in the questmode, unless you know the secret password "grim" to get to the secret options menu...WTF??? This is the lazy mans attempt on a newer version of Crimsonland, so the multiplayer is only local, which doesn't really work for most PC users.

For those wondering:
To unlock the secret options menu start a game and press Esc, then type "grim" and the menu will open.

I did play the original and I really like the fact that the game has been moved to HD format. I played a hell out of it and I think it is safe to say that story only begins after the campaign has been finished. Survival is addicting as it only can be.

Before you'll read the rest of the review please bare in mind, that I like this game, so don't get too negative image from upcoming sentences. It's just thera are some problems that will start bothering you after 15+ hours in the agme. If you don't intend to play that long, stop reading and just buy it, especially for local coop.

Unfortunately game tends to be a bit annoying. After a while, I know which guns and perks will work and which will not. Since it is all random it may (and it repeatedly will!) screw you over. I'd like to explore more exotic guns and perks combinations, but the game simpli will not let me - because it is all random.

In the end I was hoping for a little bit more - like a mode with a bit of control over gun drop, or mechanic (perk?) that would allow it. Also, I think there should be sandbox mode since a lot of perks are not well described and also a lot of stuff doesn't work together at all (e.g. rockets don't seem to apply the poison bullet effect).

Overall, I think the game is great, but longevity is crippled by lack of improvements compared to the original game.

Crimsonland
Rating: 6/10

This game is about destroying aliens, critters and other vermin. You move around the map, which is basically your screen, and have to shoot lots and lots of enemies while picking up perks, weapons, ammo, upgrades and dodging your enemies and bullets.

Graphics and sound is ok, controls are ok and tuned well to this kind of gameplay. Levels and missions are a bit dull.

The game strongly reminds me of Red Nation, which has zombies instead of these guys and is imo slightly better tuned and balanced.

In the end the game is fun to play and keeps you busy for a while.

Sorry this needs to be said: beating some of the harder levels on Hardcore is a dice roll and a tremendous waste of time...i've spent the last 3 hours trying to beat the last level because the drop rate for the items you need is extremely sparse and has basically nothing to do with skill...that level simply can't be beaten with a blow torch and that's all that drops half the time

i'll update this review to positive if/when this is fixed

They tried to fix something, which was not broken, and in result we have the worst version of crimsonland out there. But it is still one, and we don't have enough of games in this genre.

I was fan of the original. And this is just as good: lovely range of perks,guns, modes, variety of gameplay of the quests.
Only drawback is the graphics could have been a bit better for a revamp. But still it's excellent. Worth getting on sale,and if this had online coop it'd be godly.

About as basic as top-down twin stick shooters can get. Predictable weapons, no maps (just one big empty field), mostly identical monsters. Perks are similarly dry - +damage, +defense, etc.

Though this was a pioneer of the genre, its best days are far behind it. Not even nostalgia could make me play this for more than a half hour.

It's ok but... why?

Crimsonland was originally released in 2003. It's cool that it's getting re-worked and distributed on Steam, but srsly, 14 dollars for what amounts to a few new perks and a slight graphical update? Really?! I like that they added an online network mode, but I don't intend on ever playing this with someone else. They have actual games for that. I play this game to relax and kill time while listening to audiobooks. Crimsonland isn't a bad game, it's just... the same as it was in 2003, when so much of gaming has moved on. Risk of Rain and, to a lesser extent, Binding of Isaac feed the same high with much more content and better action, for less money. Maybe Crimsonland will update with some new content, but until then, I'm going to stop playing. Also, their unlock system is terrible.

Buy it if you have to to satisfy your nostalgia, I guess. Otherwise, wait until it's a humble bundle or less than $5.

I used to play this game almost non-stop when I was younger, but this remake is like knowing that Danereys Targaryen was 13 when she was married off to Khal Drogo - it's wrong.

This is a rip-off.

Title should say say REMAKE is a huge font.
Until I started the game, I expected to play a game I know and like. But this is hardly the game it was.
Graphics, gameplay and, most important, FUN, have been traded away.

What for?

I grew up on the old Crimsonland and it showed me how good top-down shooters can be.
The improved graphics and updated UI make a much more clean and modern look for the old classic.
Removing perks in quests made them a little harder but I feel I accomplished more and improved my general skills without them.

Crimsonland is more about survival mode anyway, enjoying the well-crafted mechanics of the game and shooting up lots of monsters, painting the land crimson.

This one is a fun little spectacle shooter. Fight increasingly challenging waves of vicious enemies in a blast of over-the-top violance. The trademark of Crimsonland is undoubtedly its giant selection of weapons as well as the randomness with which you get to use them. Defy OP because every piece is OP. And yet somehow you're going down.

BRING BACK THE EFFIN' PERKS IN THE QUEST MODE! Are you all idiots? Who removed the perks from quest? Fire that guy. This is unconceivable. That was the effin FUN of the old game, the PERKS! Do you want me to BUY the perks, morons? Should you release the perks as DLC-s or *airquotes* ADD-ONS should I give you idiots MORE money?! Are you effin Electronic Arts? Because cleasly you are not Ubi Soft for not crashing the game and requiring ALWAYS ONLINE DRM (I give you that, that's a plus).

Do not buy this ♥♥♥♥ unless is dirt cheap.

Rarely has a PC game given me arthritic pains like this one. I wouldn't recommend it to anyone with carpal tunnel but for everyone else 5/5.

By the 4th chapter of the campaign you are killing roughly 200 things a minute.
