(SNAPP Reviews aren’t really full-fledged game reviews as much as they are just a way for us to give you a quick “heads-up” on whether a game is good or not. It usually means that we haven’t finished the game yet, but have played a good enough chunk to know if it’s worth your time/money.)
Cracked Crusaders is a dungeon crawling action/adventure platformer by indie developer, WebbySoft. You take on the role of Dory the Duck (at first) as she goes on a journey to defeat the mysterious evil that has been spreading across the land. The game spans over 100 levels with each level having a 3-star system. Stars are important in this game. You get stars by completing the level, killing all critters, and completing the level in a certain amount of time. You can use these stars to purchase new weapons, armor, health, and more. Cracked Crusaders is a game that gets better with time. (Like wine?) Once you get past the first 10 or so levels, the game really blossoms. Sure, it’s not perfect. I would have liked to have seen adjustable controls. I found myself missing jumps here and there due to the buttons being so close together. Regardless, Cracked Crusaders is fun little game with a few surprises and a whole lot of charm.
Cracked Crusaders is also in this week’s iOS Roundup!
