Creeper World 3 is what happens when cellular automata takes over a strategy simulation. Instead of discreet units that attack your base, a fluid-like substance spreads over the terraformable terrain. Your base, your weapons, your strategy... you must adapt them all.

About the Game

Creeper World 3: Cellular automata takes over a strategy simulation.

Instead of discreet units that attack your base, a fluid-like substance spreads over the terraformable terrain. Your base, your weapons, your strategy... you must adapt them all.

Creeper World 3 bends what it means to be a strategy title.


Instead of heavily scripted A.I., players find themselves engaging an enemy with theoretically predictable behavior yet which is shockingly interesting to engage. Players can build fortifications and stick around forever. Players can go for domination, quick strategic kills, or amass huge stockpiles of resources. Some play for speed, others to create art. Tiny maps, large maps, five minute missions, five day missions... the simulation scales to handle all of these scenarios.

User generated content is critical and supported at multiple levels in Creeper World 3.

Dial up worlds using the DMD (Dial Map Device) and tweak dozens of constraints. Then, play and share the addresses via an on-line database. Create your own maps using the built-in map editor and upload and share on-line. Or, join with thousands of other players and peruse the databases of worlds created by others. Want to create a new weapon, a unit, an enemy, or an effect? Use the built in scripting language to create what you dream. Hundreds of engine commands are exposed and examples abound on the forums and grow daily. You can even take the built in story maps and make your own. In fact, all of the built in story missions were written using the built-in editor and the CRPL scripting language.

Some of the high level features are:

  • Thermodynamic/fluid physics based play.
  • Billions of total missions.
  • Story arc with insane and unique enemies.
  • Explore hundreds of star systems with thousands of worlds in Prospector missions.
  • Hundreds of hand crafted missions in the Alpha Sector.
  • Dial up your own mission worlds using the 'Dial Map Device' and share the address.
  • Create your own maps using the included map editor.
  • Play on maps of variable size, dimension, and shape.
  • Script your own enemies and effects using the built in scripting language.
  • Terraform the landscape during missions to take the higher ground.
  • Discover experimental weapons that devastate the enemy.
  • Share thousands of unique maps with an established, enthusiastic on-line community.
  • Features a unique, original, and awesome soundtrack.

I hate this game. You should never get it. Seriously. Once you have this, it will be a time sink forever. You can never finsh this game. It's a deceptive little game - you may think - "oh, there are only 23 missions in the Story then I'm done." But it's not so easy. Along your way you will unlock untold millions of additional maps. Then you can't stop playing them.

I have been playing Creeper world since 2009 and I can't stop. I need to join the Creeper World Anonymous club and confess "Hi, my name is Karsten and I can't stop killing Creeper."

You can play in the Tormented Zone if you are a masochist and like inflicting pain on yourself. Some worlds in there are documented unwinnable - but that won't stop you from trying - it didn't stop me.

Occasionally venture into Prospector zone and pick up a few Artifacts of Odin - the mightiest weapons mankind did not invent.

Try out the Alpha sector. Made by those early beta testers. Made to be difficult. Make sure you try Virgil's Brainic map. Just to see how weird you can get.

Like Shooters? Try out the Credits mission. Hey, my name is in there somewhere - so are all the other beta testers. :)

If that's not enough, go dial up your own maps in the DMD (Dial Map Device), Here you can make a world with the click of a few buttons. Add ingredients to suit you and cook up a hard challenge or a speed run - win it, name it and share it with all us us addicts. Oh wait, I'm trying to stop playing. Don't share it.

Finally, if you are creative, inventive and perhaps you like to add custom units and styles, make your own map in the Projects Editor and share it in Colonial Space. Here there are no rules. Maps are all over the place, fun, hard, tricky, unusual, huge slog-fests, or tiny puzzles. As large as 256x256 or as small as 20x20. Don't say I didn't warn you. This is where "map rage" goes to live after you discover it at Farbor (the timed mission in the Story arc).

I would tell you more, but it's time for my fix and Im heading out to the DMD to get a quick fix.

Oh yes, "Hi, my name is Karsten and I am killing Creeper."

Creeper World 3 is a very innovative strategy/TD game which resolves around fighting a very unique enemy using a variety of weapons, including a 4-6 hours story, two entire galaxies to conquer, random map generator and tons of insane custom maps (most of which powered by practically limitless custom programming language). I've been a huge fan and supporter of this series ever since I've found Creeper World 1 on Kongregate. The game is worth every cent and if you're a fan of non-hardcore strategy games (or a time attack player) who likes territorial expansion and variety then this is a game for you! If you're a story kind of person then I recommend starting from the first title to understand it all.

Tower Defense games never been so much fun. A lot of freedom, and different way to play. Stragty that work with one map, may not with other. Tons of player made maps from simple to insane, keeps the hours of fun, going, and going.

This is a very fun game. It gives you hours of fun with high replayablity. There are several user created levels and a nice comunity surounding the game. This game adds a lot to the series with more arial units and more enimies and super units or titans. If you like strategy games espically tower defence like you will proabbly like this game. The series has been one of my favorites for a long time and this game keeps it in the favorite list. highly recomend it.
