If you’re the type of player who enjoys playing for hours and hours in games with a creative flair, such as Minecraft and Cities Skylines, or even if you enjoy some casino NetBet experience, you might be interested in giving Townscaper a try. The cute town-building game from Indie Games launched on Steam in August 2021. However, the game is now available on iOS along with Android devices across the world.
It is available for purchase through mobile platforms for $4.99 or PS4.49 through either the App Store or Google Play Store, Townscaper has been praised with over 10,000 positive reviews on its home platform, Steam, and has earned its “Overwhelmingly Positive” rating, which makes it one of the highest-rated independent titles of the year. And you can now play it on the most powerful smartphones available in the present.
Townscaper isn’t as an actual game as it’s a toy but the description on the store’s page states: “No goal. No real gameplay. Just plenty of building and plenty of beauty. That’s it.”
Townscaper is also a gorgeous game to take a look at and enjoy, with a gorgeously vibrant design style that’s like what you’d see on an old book for children or an especially innovative prog rock album.
What you do to play is quite simple. Choose one color from the palette and put blocks in the game’s screen, with whatever form you’d like. Townscaper’s shape algorithm according to the store’s page, completes the work by creating buildings like churches, houses arches, bridges, archways, and much more in accordance with the general shape of the block.
Analysis: A perfect smartphone fit?
Townscaper’s minimalist UI and controls layout make it an excellent suitable game to play on the go, and we’re thrilled to hear the publisher Raw Fury released the game on mobile platforms just a few days following its release.
Townscaper appears to be an ideal fit for tablets with touchscreens as we look towards putting some time into the game using mobile devices, we’re sure it to play and look great when played on a larger and higher resolution tablet. We’re excited to watch Townscaper playing using the iPad Pro’s incredible display, for instance.
The initial reaction to the mobile version of Townscaper is equally overwhelmingly positive as an individual reviewer from the Play Store review page expressing his satisfaction that this game “makes me feel like a kid getting a new toy.” This is a sign that demand for more imaginative gaming experiences that allow players to think outside of the box is still as strong as ever.
What do we have to say? Something about creating something more out of just a handful of blocks is incredibly satisfying and Townscaper appears to understand this very well.
