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.
