Having Fun With Crater Craft

Do you ever just need 5 minutes peace? I often need a little sit down to take a breath and take my mind off how busy life is at the moment. I usually have a game on my phone that I can play for 5 minutes just to take my mind off work or life for a few minutes. The five minute break leaves me feeling refreshed and ready to face the next challenge!

I’ve recently been playing a new game I’ve downloaded onto my phone called Crater Craft. It’s much like a traditional farming / village game – think Farmville or Hay Day but you collect cute little crafters who craft items for you out of plants that you harvest. It’s really easy to play and at the start you are guided around with a tutorial so don’t worry about it being too complicated!

It’s a game based on the traditional premise of a farming game but with a unique twist – all the little crafters that you collect are so cute and the flowers and plants that you harvest are really different.

You need to collect crystals to buy more crafters and collect nectar to upgrade your factories and houses. As you would expect it is quite addictive – and it’s fun decorating the houses with the things that you have made crafting.

You can connect the game to Facebook and play with your friends too for a more social experience. I like to set it running crafting and growing crops and then next time I am able to play for 5 minutes I can collect them all and grow more crops. As you can imagine it can get quite addictive! Your crater can grow to a huge size and you can attract tourists which makes for a bigger, better game for you!

There are lots of different elements to the game, from the game itself, to games within the game and you can also rate other people’s crater’s which is fun. My favourite part of the game is looking at other people’s room and guessing their ratings!

You are able to move quite quickly through the levels at first – I am now on House Level 2 after playing it for about an hour or so and at the moment I don’t have to wait too long for buildings to upgrade or things to be crafted so I can pick it up and play it several times a day and there is always something to do.


Crater Craft has had some great reviews, here is some of what has been said about the game…

  • Addictive, very cute and fun game, definitely will recommend this to my friends and family.

    Yes I totally agree! Thereโ€™s not much time for 5 minutes peace at the moment in the lead up to Christmas. This looks like a fun way to unwind!

    I love a game that just takes your mind off things for 5 minutes – I have bejewelled type game that really just helps me switch off and ignore the world!

    I have stopped playing stuff like this. I used to play a few other games, but I am more of an MMO (Massively Multiplayer Online) gamer. For me MMO are my way of chill-axing.

    If this game helps you to chill-ax, then go for it.

    This looks like so much fun! I never have time for games these days, when I sit down I tend to fall asleep, haha!

    I need to get into something like this as a way to unwind and relax – looks like fun, though addictive lol ๐Ÿ™‚

    Now this sounds like a game I could get into, hands up I can spend hours playing games some time! Though it has been a while since I did it.

  7. December 20, 2017 / 2:36 pm

    This sounds very addictive and a game I would really enjoy playing if I have the time!

    It’s great to be able to switch off and unwind every so often, especially at this busy time of year!

    We have this game and I love being able to pop on to craft a few things I need for a guest house or for my own! I need a bigger garden though! Haha! Crater goals!

    I’m not really into games much I prefer the old consoles and stuff butt his looks like one worth trying.

    I’ve seen this game pop up in the App Store a few times! I can see why it would be so addictive! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Oh I love games like this, everyone needs 5 minutes time to switch off a bit and I find games like this are perfect.

  13. December 21, 2017 / 12:50 pm

    My mummy wishes she had time for games on her phone, she used to play on the SNES all the time as a kid and misses gaming. Maybe she could make time x

    The game looks so cool Iโ€™ve never thought about playing a game on my phone as a way to unwind! This is such a good idea. I always see people on the train/ bus playing games but never associated relaxation with it…..
