Light, digestible (indie) game reviews.
I attempted to play this longer, but SmuggleCraft just couldn't hold my attention.
*Based on updated Steam total play time.
The concept of SmuggleCraft sounds exciting: take on different mission types to earn credits and materials to then build various body parts for your hovercraft, altering how it handles for future missions. However, while the low poly visual aesthetic is fantastic, the gameplay couldn't hold my attention.
I really wanted to create rad hovercrafts. Unfortunately, I found it difficult to grind the bland, repetitive, and sometimes boring missions in order to get the materials/cash needed to craft. Sure, some missions were more exciting than others, but I found them few and far between.
Look, SmuggleCraft isn't a bad game, it's just not a game for me. You may get more mileage out of it, especially if you're looking for a more serene, casual racer with the ability to create super-rad looking hovercrafts via a neat little crafting mechanic.
