Crashlands follows the story of Flux Dabes, a space trucker whose shipment gets destroyed by an alien with a whim and a science project to complete. This alien is called Hewgodooko (definitely alien!) and only makes his appearance as a floating head. The shipment is extremely valuable to you, however, and you will go to any lengths to retrieve it. The game includes a huge and intricate crafting system which includes over 500 craftable items. So there’s always crafting for you to pass your time if you aren’t focusing on the main aspect.
The entire concept of inventory management has been removed from the game by virtue of a better system of a self-managing, infinite inventory which brings out the tools you need and negates the hassle of finding the right tool and forsaking valuable items in order to free up inventory space for more important ones.
Flux grows in power by meeting strange new characters and embarking on quests to defeat a varied collection of enemies. The battles with the enemies are also entertaining and you can use your crafted gadgets to stun, fire or slow down time, among many other actions. The aim is to make the best use of the plant you have crash landed on and even set your base there. As you explore this new planet, you will discover feral creatures ready to be trained to be your sidekick.
VERDICT – CRASHLANDS
Crashlands looks absolutely gorgeous and you have a hard heart indeed of you do not squeal with pleasure at least once while playing this game. What’s even better is that your progress gets synchronised across multiple devices so you can always keep playing across different devices even if their batteries’ get drained. Go on, don’t be shy now. For adventure awaits!
