About This Game

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!

RPG-Style Character Progression
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
Learn the attacks of the enemies you encounter, and use your skill, agility, and wits to defeat them! You can even augment your fighting prowess with the power of the dozens of gadgets you can craft. Set your enemies on fire, stun them, slow down time, and more!

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!

Crossplatforminess
Don't want the fun to stop? Crashlands is also available on mobile - the exact same game, with your cloud-synced progress - so you never have to stop!

Before I knew it five hours had passed is I think all I need to say about this game.

To be more specific though... it kind of feels like it reinvents the wheel when it comes to crafting/building RPG games. In a good way. There's very little in the way of tedious wait times when things are crafting and the recipes are usually simple enough not to have a whole ton of things you need to build to build things you need to build things with. If that makes sense. It's fast in other words so you can get back to smashing things.

Combat is slightly more complicated than it seems with each enemy having unique attack patterns that you need to learn to avoid. However realistically I found that since most of the big enemies could kill me outright in one or two hits dancing around them trying to get hits in is just too risky most of the time. Even a small enemy attacks so fast they can catch you off guard or between healing item cooldowns and wipe you out.

The best option seems to be to just aggro as much stuff as possible with ranged attacks and let your trusty one legged rhino-cow-thing AOE stomp everything into oblivion whilst you carry on mining stuff or chopping wood whilst dodging attacks. This is pretty hilarious to watch and somehow never really gets old. The only problem is said trusty rhino-cow isn't so trusty as to continue attacking the swarm of cosmic monstrosities following you unless you keep throwing in the odd ranged attack to keep his interest. If he kills his target he'll just run back to you and ignore the other dozen critters until you attack something too. I feel this was done deliberately to stop easy farming by just letting the pet do all the work but it can make things awkward as it is often near impossible to actually get an attack in whilst giant land-squids, butterflys and rhinos are doing their best to separate your brains from your skull.

One big issue I continually had is the pathfinding. Click to move games are never my favourite but after a few minutes of instinctively trying to WASD my way around the place I had become quite comfortable with it. Until I clicked inside the house only for my character to run headfirst into a wall for ten seconds. Try to cross any land dotted with water and it's even worse requiring constant clicks right in front of you just to keep him from trying to drown himself. This can be even more awkward in combat when you try to use a ranged attack only for him to run directly into melee range because there just happened to be a small bush blocking the shot. In a game with mouse only control the pathfinding really could do with being a bit better than this.

Having WASD as the item bar seems like a clever middle finger to traditional keyboard controls however having access to just four items can be a little limited and detrimental to the game. Two of those slots have to be taken by the wrench and blowpipe ranged weapons for practicality and the other two have to be taken by the basic food items at the moment since the cooldown is so high on them and the amount they heal so low. All the nice bomb recipes I've found are too dangerous to use until I get better healing items. I found a recipe for a HP potion but it is quite costly and currently heals more health than I actually have... and presumably will also be on a 30 second cooldown.

That said there isn't really any penalty to dying, true to the quick paced nature of the game. You can just teleport immediately after respawning to a nearby portal and are rarely more than 30 seconds away from recovering all your stuff. Whilst it may seem a little weird to totally remove any fear of death like this it really just serves to make the game more enjoyable. I can't count the amount of times in Terraria, Minecraft or similar that I've spent an hour grinding resources only to get killed by something stupid and rush back as quickly as possible to get my gear only to find it gone. In at least half of those innumerous situations I've just quit the game and got bored of it for the day.

The infinite inventory and lack of hours spent sorting through chests and juggling resources around also serves well to focus this game on actual gameplay and not a shelf stacking simulator. All of these things make it feel like a far more casual and basic game but they also make it more about action. The game is also pretty funny with great dialogue however it does concern me that it is very linear so far so I don't know that it will have anywhere near as much replay value as similar games. That said, after five hours I don't appear to have even glimpsed the end so all in all it is well worth the £10.

This game was advertised as a fast paced adventure game with a strong story, the gameplay is slow and boring, the charecters are un-intresting and frankly the game is just not great, no disrespect to Butterscotch Shenanigins but I don't think the game matches the advertising.

For a $15 dollar game it offers a lot of enjoyment fun and not much to be desired. I would definitely recommend this to anyone looking to get the most enjoyment for their money. However, I suggest you get it on the mobile (I put around 50 hrs into it on there) as it is then only $5, and get the PC version if you truly enjoy it. Buying mobile first doesn't matter as you can transfer your save through the built in cloud saving. The game can be grindy at times but it compenstates by allowing you to hold infinite items and not have to manage your inventory. I find the combat to be intuitive and fun while sometimes still posing a challenge. Yet even if you die, it's not a problem. When you die you drop some recently collected resources and a gravestone marking the location. To retrieve the items you just have to walk near them. Crafting armor and weapons can be annoying as the game relies upon a random quality when you craft so you could grind to get the materiels but then get a white, the lowest teir. However the game has very few flaws and is very enjoyable as a casual rpg.

I really am enjoying this.
You play as two robots trying to fulfill their instructions; deliver three packages.
Their ship runs afoul of a powerful god-like head-thing and they *crash land* on the nearby planet.

Its kind of like Don't Starve but much better.
Like a top-down Terraria with quests and a story line.

It has that open world aspect where you can simply walk in one direction and eventually encounter tougher and tougher wildlife. When you do this and discover a whole landscape of natural resources your aren’t equipped to harvest- well it just scratches that resource-gathering itch.

Equipment progression feels good and combat can be challenging until you start abusing patterns. It's still challenging, but rewarding when you take down something much more difficult than you are "geared" for.

The inclusion of ubiquitous teleport pads for easy jumps deeper into, and out-of, explored territory makes the gameplay never really feel artificially extended.

When you find yourself mindlessly harvesting one more bacon flower you don't even need you will relax and remember that inventory management is non-existent. I haven’t reached a cap of anything yet and your inventory manages itself. You can pick up everything.

10/10

imagine dont starve but with a story. questing and with way cooler bosses, oh and also the battleing is pretty fun too. the game takes time which is good so you won't get bored right away, but when you get all the resources you might feel relived.
