Weekly Time Waster - ‘Astracraft’

Rate this item
(0 votes)

If you’ve ever seen an episode of “Battlebots,” where teams build various robots with different physics and weapons and put them to the test against each other, then this week’s time waster is definitely for you.

“Astracraft” is a sandbox mech combat game where you’re part of a team tasked with creating battle mechs or vehicles, then using and controlling them to battle another team of players. What’s nice about this game is there is both a battling aspect and a creation aspect; if you are a creative person, you can spend quite a lot of time there. You can build cars to battle and race in, ships to fly around and fight in the skies or take out ground targets or even transformer-style battle mechs if you want to feel like you are in a Hollywood film.

When I say this is a “sandbox” game, it means you have the freedom to do whatever you want without too much restriction. In create mode, you get to create your mechs and test them out using an assortment of assets that you can mix and match however you want. You can build your own maps as well. Building the mechs almost feels like building with Legos; it’s no more complicated than that.

In battle mode, you get to take your mechs out into the field and test their true might. And battle mode is rule-free, so anything goes. If you build the superior mech, you win … and no one can tell you otherwise. There are more focused game modes as well: king of the hill, a race mode and more.

There’s an endless amount of fun to be had in “Astracraft.” There’s even a weekly contest where you can submit your creations; the 30 best creations each week get featured and the players will receive in-game rewards. So go out there and create, battle and use your imagination!

“Astracraft” is free to download on the Android and IOS stores.
