v3.1 with Achievements and Global Leaderboards is now live

I've just posted a big update with new features and lots of little bug fixes. Here's what's new:


  • Steam Achievements! There are 11 new goals to work for - from simple things like earning 3 stars on a level to completing all 50 levels in Hard Mode.
  • Global Leaderboards. Probably the most requested feature from players is finally here. The leaderboards are still empty, so now is a great time to make your mark. Also a great time to get the Number One achievement.
  • Game progress now saved in the Cloud. You'll keep any progress you've made with the old system, and now it will also be stored on the Steam servers.
  • Upgraded game engine to Unity v2017.2. Faster physics and better performance in VR.
  • Improved the Tutorial level. More info about the controls, quieter video.
  • New pause menu that also shows the global/local high scores
  • New Ringer Runner level 23. The last one was *way* too hard.
  • Fixed a problem on main menu with launching a level more than once
  • Lander now tumbles and rolls once one of the tanks is broken.

Leaderboards and Achievements - better late than never.

Hello crashers. It's been a while since I updated Crashed Lander, but I've dusted off my project files to make a few additions. I'm (finally) adding Global Leaderboards and Steam Achievements to the game.

These have been the most requested features ever since bringing the game to Steam. I've tried several times in the past to add these features, but my coding skills were not up to the task. Guess they are now, 'cuz I finally figured it out. I had to switch programming languages to get it done. Still not really comfortable in C#, but I'm getting the hang of it.

I've posted a new build to the Beta branch that has global leaderboards for all 50 levels, both Normal and Hard difficulty. Leaderboards are displayed after finishing a level, or you can peek at the leaders on the Pause screen. The local best score is displayed before you start each level. Achievements are working, but not included in the current Beta. They should be active in a few days.

Not many people actually playing the game these days, but maybe this wil spark a little renewed interest and attract some new challengers.

You can acces the Beta build by right-clicking on Crashed Lander in your Steam library, choosing properties, clicking the Betas tab, then choosing v3Beta from the dropdown menu.

I'll also be cleaning up a few bugs and re-jiggering a couple of the levels that I'm not happy with - llike the Overwatch Rings level which is WAY to hard. If you have any suggestions or bug reports, now would be a good time to let me hear 'em. I'll start a Forum Thread for anyone who wants to comment on the Beta, too.

About This Game

Outwit gravity, race the clock, explore new worlds.

Crashed lander is a gravity-based arcade game inspired by classics like Lunar Lander and Space Taxi. You've built a janky craft out of propane tanks and spare parts. Pilot it from pad to pad trying to beat your best time – then flirt with that fine line between speed and control.

If you’re brave enough to try Hard Mode you’ll be flopping around like a QWOPy, low gravity turtle. With a little practice you’ll be zippin' around doin' barrel rolls. You’ll see sites from the cutting edge of fractal mathematics – bizarre, organic shapes, arcane archaeological digs, and all manner of WTFderful alien vistas. Each level is a hand-crafted environment that encourages the player to explore - and goof around! You can also pilot your lander in virtual reality with your Rift, Vive, or other SteamVR compatible headset.

  • 25 levels to conquer and explore in pad Hopper mode
  • 25 levels in Ring Runner mode - fly through custom courses
  • Full VR support - works on Rift, Vive, and monitors!
  • Full (xbox 360) controller support
  • Hidden collectibles on every level
  • Earn stars and track your progress through all 50 levels
  • An hour of spacey, glitch-hop music - mp3's included!
  • Achievements and Global Leaderboards.
  • Windows, OSX, and Linux!

Version 3.1 is available now with better performance, improved VR support, new options menu, new tutorial, and a first person camera mode.
