Rovio has teamed up with DreamWorks to bring to Android devices a spin-off to the upcoming movie The Croods. The game features the characters of the movie and is often described as a cross between Monster Hunter and Sim City/Farmville. Your objective is to progress the Croods family out of the Stone Age.
The Croods which is developed by Rovio Mobile Ltd. is now available free to download over at Google Play. You will need a device running on at least Android 2.2 as well as a storage space of 27 MB.
The graphics of the game are great just like any Rovio creation however the company has dropped their signature physics type gameplay. In this title you will have to hunt and gather your own food to stay alive. You will also need to discover and tame several creatures. These creatures are not like your usual creatures though with names like Girelephant or Molarbear.
Some of the game features include
- Trap & tame 10 evolutionarily mixed- up creatures! You’ve never seen anything like the Girelephant or Molarbear! Think you can catch them all?
- Create wacky inventions with Grug to open and explore new areas!
- Decorate your pre-historic world with the latest in caveman fashion accessories!
- Meet your favorite characters from the feature animation film from DreamWorks Animation!
Gameplay consists of you exploring the land and taming creatures. You will also get to build several inventions which make discovering the land easier. These inventions are important since several hidden areas of the game cannot be accessed without them.
You will also be able to customize your home and character with accessories which you can find in the game. There are however several items that will cost real world money which you can purchase via the in-app purchase feature.
The trailer of the upcoming movie was fun to watch and this game is a good complement to the movie.
