Unique ARPG Crashlands arrives to Google Play

by: Andrew GrushJanuary 21, 2016

After a rather lengthy development process where the game was teased at least a few times, Crashlands from Butterscotch Shenanigans has arrived to Google Play for all Android devices, and includes optimization for the NVIDIA Shield family.

For those unaware, Crashlands is an action RPG that puts you in the role of a spaceship delivery driver who ends up crashing on a random planet. The ultimate goal of the game is to find a way to get past the whole crashed ship thing and finish your delivery routes. Along the way, you’ll need to fight local wildlife, craft and upgrade stuff, build a base of operation, and collect the things you need to complete your end goal.

As you probably figured out from the trailer, this game isn’t meant to be on the serious side, instead offering bright colors, zany dialogue, and a story that is over the top, yet rather addicting nonetheless.

In a world where free-to-play games are king, Crashlands breaks convention and gives us a freemium title priced at $5. Considering the amount of depth to be found in this ARPG, we’d say that’s a price that is well worth paying, particular for fans of crafting ARPGs. It’s also worth mentioning the game is cross-platform, allowing you to take your experience from your Android device to your PC (Steam), and there’s even an iOS version.

Anyone give this a try yet? If so, what did you think? Be sure to let us know your thoughts down in the comments.

    I must be the only gamer who’s not really interested in these Minecraft Terraria kill/harvest/etc and build stuff clones.

    If it has Controller Support, i’d but it.

      Although, controller/gamepad support is pretty much a requirement for me to buy any game. If it does not have that support, I am usually reluctant to download/play it even if it is free.

      Google should really make devolpers mark their apps/games if they have controller/gamepad support. Just like they are marked if they have “in app purchases”.

      The ability to filter searches in Google Play to find apps/games with this specific support (preferably with the ability to filter out apps/games that have “in app purchases” at the same time as well) would also be nice.

        easy, get a shield tablet, you can play about 90% of the games out there, 95% hybrid (Tablet+controller)

    Bought this immediately and I can honestly say – I have enjoyed every single moment so far. From the combat against all manner of wild alien beasts (that each have their own attack strategies) to the simple and easy to use crafting, to the humor to the generally just… Really fun game play. It’s easily one of my favorites so far and looks to have a LOT of depth I’ve only slightly uncovered.
    And to anyone who doesn’t like Minecraft and Terraria clones – this is not either of those! This is much more like Don’t Starve, minus the stress of the countdown to your own impending death.
    Missions, too, and a clear goal! It’s lovely!
