Hands-On Preview of Open-World Adventure Game Crashlands

Butterscotch Shenanigans, the studio behind the zany but much-loved action game Flop Rocket, has a new game on display at GDC 2015: Crashlands. This open-world adventure / crafting game focuses on exploration (and survival) in an infinite world. AppleNApps has a video preview.

The game is huge, as alpha testers have played 8-16 hours, and yet only made it through the first of three biomes. As a more recent comparison on iOS, Crashlands is a bit like Radiation Island with that survival adventure style, but really optimized for touch with the personality Butterscotch Shenanigans is known for.

Totter is a Weird but Compelling Endless Action Title

AppSpy goes hands-on with Totter, a strange-looking game that has you endlessly balancing on a single point. The idea is to stay upright for as long as possible – not bad advice when you’re seemingly miles above the ground. However, a lot of hazards want to bring you down, including wind and, bizarrely, beach balls. Totter hits iOS on March 19.
