Default Krashlander - Ski Down Mountains and Attack Evil Robots - [Universal]

Krashlander - Launching February 7, 2013

The Pitch
Krashlander is a physics powered game that will have you blasting down large mountain slopes and soaring over gaping crevices to attack the evil robots that destroyed your world.





What's interesting about krashlander
  • A fluid and precise physics-driven control mechanic borrowed from an awesome old abandoned game called Ski Stunt Simulator.
  • Epic rigid-body style crashes.
  • A dedicated one-man development team with a Google Doc full of update ideas. This first release is very much only the beginning.

The Story
Evil robots from another planet have destroyed your world.
Revenge is your mission.
Your krashsuit is your weapon.
ATTACK THE ROBOTS!!!

The story behind Krashlander is pretty loose. You play as the last remaining human who was once a member of an elite force of Krahslanders.

A Krashlander wears a protective "krashsuit", skis down mountains, and crashes into things. The krashsuit is his weapon. The suit's regenerative nature repairs any damage done to the occupant.

As the last remaining Krashlander, who now simply goes by the name Krashlander, your only mission is to exact revenge on the robots that destroyed your world.

Other Details
Launch Date: Februrary 7, 2013
Price: $0.99

bram and crex, Thanks.

Glad you like the art style. Art is a weak point of mine so I try to keep it fairly simple. :-)

Appreciate the feedback.

How many levels in the release version? Any support for iPad retina?

I agree with the art style comments, simplicity is beautiful. Once you start attempting to use textures you risk looking amateurish, but you can't go wrong with plain colours.

1st release will have 20 levels. More levels and a lot of other stuff will be added via updates. Krashlander is Universal and yes is supports iPad retina.

Thanks for the comments. Yes, if I made textures they would look amateurish. :-)
