About This Game

"Usually I can say what a game IS and be done, but it's hard to figure out what Crashlands ISN'T. It's a funny, crafty, fighty, jumpy, makey, adventurey, type... thing. I think they started making a cool game and just couldn't stop. " - Tycho, Penny Arcade

Craft, battle, and quest your way through Crashlands, a story-driven Crafting ARPG overflowing with sass!

Become Flux Dabes, a galactic trucker whose latest shipment gets derailed by a chin-strapped alien menace named Hewgodooko, leaving you stranded on an alien planet. As you hustle to retrieve your packages you’ll become enmeshed in a nefarious plot of world domination, which will require all of your wits and both of your glutes to overcome. Learn recipes from the local sentient life, make new friends, uncover ancient secrets and deadly bosses, tame everything and build yourself a home-away-from-home as you learn to thrive on planet Woanope.

Key Features

Expansive Crafting System
Unlock over 500 craftable items as you explore the world and learn its secrets!

Self-managing, Infinite Inventory
In Crashlands, your inventory is infinite, manages itself, and retrieves your tools when you need them, so you can focus on adventuring, questing, and building. You'll never have dig through your bag or return to your base to free up inventory space!

Become more powerful through creating ever-more-amazing items! As you grow in power, you can venture to new regions of the world, meet strange characters, discover new stories, and encounter new and interesting enemies.

Skill-Based Combat

Intuitive Base Building
Building a base in Crashlands is so simple it feels like fingerpainting. You can create beautiful, sprawling bases in minutes!

Tameable Creatures
Every creature in Crashlands can become a trusty combat sidekick. Find an egg, incubate it, and hatch your very own adorable or hideous bundle of joy. You can even craft special items to grow and empower them!

Huge World... with Huge Problems
Four sentient races, three continents, an epic bid for the future of the planet, and you - trapped in the middle, trying to deliver your freakin' packages. Take your time to dive into the sidestories of the characters you meet or just rush headlong into making that special delivery. With hundreds upon hundreds of quests, there's a lot to do and discover on planet Woanope!

This game is well worth the money. A crafting system that makes sense. Missions that are clear. Rewarding gameplay. HOURS of content. The crafting is a big part of the game, usually you do missions for recipes or blueprints. Enemies and areas scale, but you can always warp back and whip enemies that griefed you before. Boss battles are fair and rewarding. The amount of time you can put into this game while it refreshes itself with new areas and recipes/blueprints and a fresh story make this game one you should not overlook. The fact its on mobile should not turn you away. Its a FULL game.

The good

The game has a wonderful pet system and you can evolve them into killing death machines.You can even bring them to boss fights which is freaking great.Unlimited inventory is a pretty neat idea as the highlight of the game is all about collecting and crafting.Decent writing and the puns arent too bad either.Art style is fantastic.Performance is great.Crafting is awesome.I loved the recipes and was meaningful

The Bad

Combat is mixed bag for me as higher enemies can one shot you if u fail to register your mouse click.Collecting 100ish of the same item is not exciting.Game doesnt tell you what to do in the early stages.I wish this game had a multiplayer.No mod support as no fan made contents are not allowed accourding to terms and conditions

The Ugly

Quests are vague and no way of knowing if its a main quest or a side quest.The biggest issue is that these quest are to be completed to move further as they reward you with essential tools which are required to progress further.

Final Verdict

Make sure you like crafting and collecting.Thats the entire premise of the game .For me I enjoy this kind of game.Therefore I recommend it

Seriously this is the best game I have played in a LONGGGGG time! It combines the best of Don't Starve without all of the annoying starving along with the best parts of Terraria and mixes it with 2/3rds hillarious and more than a dash of FREAKIN' AWESOME and comes up with a real winner. There is just enormous amounts of content: a ginormous world, fun things to do and collect, weird and often funny creatures to kill, awesome things to build, funny characters, witty dialog, pets, and more. The gameplay is just right; not too easy and not too hard. Combat is equally well done with creature difficulty ramping up as you explore into different areas but never seems impossible. Graphics are really well done and everything has a funny cartoony look to it to match the games HUMONGOUS sense of humor. The characters, the creatures, the dialog, the item names, the item descriptions; I mean EVERYTHING is funny as hell! If you love games like Don't Starve and Terraria.....hell if you like games at all, you owe it to yourself to give Crashlands a try! You won't be disappointed!

I did not expected to like this GameMaker Studio title. But i did ! Nice and cool graphics, okay atmosphere, good enough combat mechanics, plenty of crafting, some humor here and there.. Quite enjoyable game if you can find it under 10 usd like i did on Humble Bundle.

My favorite BScotch game so far. I'ts short, but you're able to take as much time as you want talking to everyone and finding secrets that you can put a great amount of time into it without getting bored. The soundtrack is like nothing else, but I must give credit to Fat Bard for that, not BScotch.

This review comes extremely late, but I really enjoyed Crashlands. The humor was wacky, the gameplay was fun, and it was neither ridiculously hard nor super easy. I need to pick back up where I left off...

Just one big skinner box.

Both the crafting and combat are pretty bland. It might have been more interesting if you could discover crafting recipes naturally as you discovered the materials (e.g. like in Minecraft or Terraria), but the game gates the crafting by slow-dripping recipes to you via missions, so even if you have the materials, you can only start crafting things in a more or less predetermined sequence. It might have also been more interesting if the world were interesting to explore, but there is nothing in it that really feels like discovery. It's just a huge endless plain of plants to harvest. It does have "quests" but they are just the tired old MMORPG style, i.e. "go kill this monster and then come back" or "go collect me 10 rat testicles" etc.

I can't believe there are some people saying this is better than Terraria...?! As a person with over 1,000 hours in Terraria, this is definitely NOT better than Terraria. I say this only for any Terraria fans who might be enticed by those kinds of statements. There is nothing even remotely Terraria-like about this. It's much closer to playing Don't Starve with the hunger/sanity meters removed, which is not as great as it may sound.

The game is obviously more complicated than just a clicker game because of all the systems involved, but that just kinda makes it feel like six different clicker games interwoven with each other to me. It felt like a skinner box within the first hour, but I pressed on for four more hours hoping I'd get more interested, but I just couldn't find much there.

Some people seem to enjoy the humor, but all of the humor feels really forced and trying-too-hard to me. (I feel the same about the trailers, so use that to determine whether you might agree with me about the humor.)

I always hate to be so negative on a game, because I know a lot of work and love goes into them, but this just didn't do anything for me personally.

Crashlands is pretty fun, and I plan on playing it quite a bit more, but this game is way too grindy. It feels like I'm playing an mmo alone. Enemies can one-shot you easily, even with up to date gear. This wouldn't be so bad if they didn't also have crazy amounts of hp. It takes minutes to kill a single monster. That's a long time when you consder that you need at least 150 of every item a species drops. I'm not even considering the cost of decorating your home.

I wanted to play a harder difficulty, but i realized right from the start that the hp pools are insane, so I swapped to adventure. Starting to think I should have just gone to the easiest one. It's not that I don't like a challenge, but the time it takes to kill the monsters is just absurd.

Something else I found bizarre was the crafting timers. I'm at the level 5 set of gear, and items take over a minute to craft. What is even the point of timers like that in a single player game? I spent two hours farming materials, now I need to alt tab for 10 minutes? Silly.

It's a fun game, and I like the combat, but I don't recommend purchasing it.
