Crimsonland is a 2014 re-release of the 2003 dual-stick top-down shoot 'em up with the RPG elements. That is the only game within the IP.


The game consists of the player and infinite waves of the enemies divided into the levels. The walkthrough may be eased by inviting up to three other players into the game.
There are seven game mods: "Quest", featuring 60 levels on different areas, each with the individual set of goal thus the name; "Survival" in which there are infinite waves of enemies and player is challenged to hold out as long as possible; "Rush" gives the protagonist only AK-47 and asks him to react quickly to the enemies; "Nukefism" does not allow the player to wield any weapon, but the collection of bonuses allows him to crash the foes; "Weapon Picker" speaks for itself — there is no ability reload, so the player is forced to change the firearm every time they run out of ammo. "Blitz" is just upgraded "Survival" and finally the "Gembine" which is just 2048 tiles game in the Crimsonland setting.
The "Typ'o'Shooter" mode was removed — players had to type the words appearing on the screen to kill the enemies in it.


The title features no storyline whatsoever. The only sign of a story is the quest system. Completing the quest allows the player to unlock more weapons and perks.

Crimsonland reviews and comments

Translated by
Microsoft from Deutsch
With a profound Story, Crimsonland cannot serve, which no one expects, because this is only about the following Things: Killing, Surviving, improving. However, If a few Pedants still insist on a Summary, these Films such as Starship Troopers can be encouraged. A Kind of Soldier is stuck on a Planet, fighting his Way through a Horde of Insects, Lizards and Mutant Creatures, trying to survive. Crimsonland first offers the Player quest mode, where you can play through 6 different Worlds of ten Missions each. Different Weapons are presented to you per mission. During the first Missions, you unlock survival mode, which, as the Name suggests, is about surviving for as long as possible. There you have the Weapons that you unlocked in quest mode. This also applies to Perks, which work in Principle like skill points. Once you have accumulated a certain Number of Experience points, you can choose from the shared Special Abilities, such as Reloading Weapons more quickly. But Survival is not equal to Survival. This is possible in Crimsonland in Five different Ways. While you have to survive Wave by Wave in normal survival Mode, rush mode is about surviving without experience Points and after Seconds, while from the Start huge Hordes of Enemies are storming towards you. Graphically, Crimsonland has hardly changed compared to the original title, but this is no longer problematic, but supports the Charm of the Game. The Game is presented in a GTA 2 look, in which the Colour red is in the Foreground. In some Cases, when Playing, the Ground was so bloody that red Opponents were also no longer recognizable on it. The slightly older Graphic has the Advantage that Crimsonland runs flawlessly even on very old PCs and even Laptops, even when the Screen is full of Insects and Lizards. The Controls are classic with WASD and the Mouse. Controllers are also supported, but should only be second Choice, or imperative Friends, as the Control by Gamepad proves to be very inaccurate and exhausting. Appropos Friends: All Modes are also possible in the Co-op with up to four Players. However, this is only Local On the home Computer and not online or over a Network. Too bad, with an online feature, the Title would surely have evoked a very different Gameplay once again. Crimsonland offers a Lot Of Gameplay that can keep you busy for Hours. It doesn't matter if the Game is just a simple Remake of the ten-year-old Original. Especially in the Co-op, the Top-down shooter makes you really whim, which makes it all the sadder that no online mode is supported. Retro is all well and good, but some Things should be adjusted in 2014. Even so, Crimsonland is a Game that simply fuses and excites. (And for the current Offer of €8.39ny (until June 18), you can definitely strike.) We give the Title 73%. For more Reviews visit us on www.gamers.de
