Droidcraft mixes survival and crafting into a fun sandbox style adventure for Android. There is a free version of the game available although it doesn’t include monsters and a few other features.
The game launched back in 2010 and has received a steady stream of updates to turn it from a mediocre game to something that is definitely worth trying. There is also a sequel available under the name of DroidHaunt.
The game places you alone in an unknown landscape and has you exploring multiple levels in order to discover why exactly you are here. Droidcraft has all the features you would want in a Minecraft inspired adventure including randomly generated levels, the ability to mine for resources, food crafting, weapons and much more.
Gameplay of Droidcraft is very much focused on your survival with your underlying goal to be communicating with your world in order to be rescued. This strange world isn’t completely dangerous though as during daylight you will find plenty of friendly people to interact with, who all have handy pieces of advice.
Once the sky turns to night though is when your battle for survival really begins with plenty of strange and twisted creatures that will roam the landscape.
The best feature of Droidcraft is the blueprint system which slowly opens up new possibilities rather than giving you all of the creative tools at once. These blueprints are scattered around the game world and fall under plenty of different categories including tools, weapons, food and armour.
Overall there is plenty to enjoy in Droidcraft, you’ve got lots of freedom in how you approach the game and since the game has lots of random elements, you can have several play throughs before the game gets too repetitive. Don’t forget that there is a free version available and while it doesn’t have all the game features, it gives you enough of a taste before making a purchase decision.
