Murder legos.

Do you like building elaborate vehicles with creative tools complete with little guns and missile launches and the like? Do you further like imagining said vehicles blowing one another up? If so, Astracraft might be just for you. This new mobile title is available for download from developer Payload Studios, co-produced by Netease, and it’s all about creatively building your own vehicles of choice from walking mechs to cars to spider mechs to planes.

And then? Well, you get into an arena and blow other such vehicles up, naturally.

You can get some sense of what’s possible in the game via the trailers just below, showing off some of the game’s multitude of creations as well as the gameplay in dynamic form. The title is available now for both iOS devices and Android mobile devises, so if this looks like a fun way to while away some idle hours with what amount to Murder Legos, go for it.

Hmm, so basically Robocraft for mobile, then? As @Neurotic said, seems like a game far better suited to desktop.

This looks great, but it also seems like one of a vast sea of awesome mobile games that I’ll never play, because they require the kind of time, commitment, and precision that is much better suited to PC. If I’m playing a game on my phone, it’s because I have a few minutes to spare at most.

I suppose though, these days, many kids don’t have PCs at all. I work in a school and the issues we’ve had with remote learning are insane due to families not even having laptop anymore, let alone a desktop PC. Kids do everything on their phones…

That’s a really great point. I’d never considered this from the point of view of children or people without some kind of PC or laptop. Thanks for pointing this out!

I’ve had kind of the opposite problem with my elderly father, who had a laptop for ages but could never figure it out. It was kind of tricky, because he’d call me and ask how to do something, and I’d say, like “Right click on your desktop”, and he’d have nooo idea, at all. :D Finally, his friends made him get an iPhone, which he now lives on. :D

Reminds me of the Gummi Ship building in Kingdom Hearts a little bit, lol. That’s fun, though I have to drop the generic “too bad it’s only on mobile” line.
