Today I thought I’d share an app I recently discovered. I love my iPhone and love playing games on it. It’s fun to discover a new game and I find they are the perfect way to take 5 minutes for myself and relax throughout the day. Crater Craft is a fun, free app for both iOS and Google Play. Games are always so much more fun when your friends are playing so I thought I’d share my Player Tag (#86351d6) in case you want to come and find me!

The Crater Craft app is available on both iOS and Google Play. I have an iPhone and it was easy to download and start playing straight away. The idea of the game is that when a series of volcanic eruptions disrupt a once prosperous planet, the planet’s locals reach out to nearby galaxies with a unique invitation… Crater Craftmasters wanted! No experience required!
Be warned. It’s fun and a highly addictive game. It’s a farming/village building game, similar to Hay Day or Farmville. It really doesn’t take long to get to grips with. There are lots of parts to the game but many get unlocked the more you play, making it pretty easy to start playing and figure everything out along the way. It’s actually perfect for when I’m sitting in the car, waiting for the kids to finish school – I seem to have a lot of spare time spent waiting for those kids of mine!

What do we think of Crater Craft?
I’ve really been enjoying playing Crater Craft. It’s free to download and play but there is the option of in-app purchases if you wish to upgrade quicker. I like the fact there is so much to see and do, and it’s really easy to navigate around the crater. I have spent a few hours playing it, harvesting my plants, recruiting Crafters and upgrading my buildings.
You do need to have a little patience though. I quickly ran out of space in my warehouse and a few items needed time to upgrade. I like to play for half an hour at bedtime, then wake up the next morning to see what has changed. I’m not particularly patient so a few times I’ve used vouchers to upgrade. It seemed to take a while to upgrade my house when I was getting desperate to upgrade it and decorate it. There ‘s a fun feature called Popular Rooms which is a weekly competition to showcase the most ‘liked’ rooms with prizes on offer – so it’s worth spending time making sure your house looks good!
I could tell you more about the app but I’m really hoping you’ll want to take a look for yourself. It has cute graphics and you can even customise your character. Here’s my tag #86351d6, add me as a friend and let’s compare our craters whilst we play Crater Craft!
