For the longest time, we’ve been talking about a game called Crashlands from one of our favourite indie developer studios, 3-man team Butterscotch Shenanigans (BS). The game is a crafting/survival game not unlike Minecraft except that Crashlands adopts a isometric view from above and naturally BS’s iconic art style. And at long last, Crashlands is now available on Android (and iOS), finally giving us a chance to experience the game for ourselves after so much teasing.
The premise of Crashlands is that you are galactic transport specialist Flux Dabes, but all that comes crashing down – literally – when your ship is sabotaged by an alien known as Hewgodooko. Naturally, your hero survives the crash, but is left to fend for himself on an alien planet where you’ll need to scavenge resources and build yourself a home base and weapons to have a chance at surviving. I’ve been playing Crashlands the past week and if you’re a fan of BS or like having fun, then Crashlands is the game for you – like all other BS games, Crashlands doesn’t take itself too seriously, and the game hugely benefits from that. To get on the Crashlands bandwagon, you’ll need to shell out $4.99 USD for the game (link below), but in my opinion it’s well worth it (with an average rating of 4.9 out of 5, I think most people agree with me too).
