OrangePixel’s Ashworld interestingly combines open-world survival gameplay with 2D platforming in a strange mashup of pixel-based post-apocalyptic madness. It was initially released on PC back in September of 2017, and it hit iOS three months later in December. But as always, Android users have to wait patiently for their turn. Well, it would appear that Ashworld has finally landed on the Google Play Store as of this morning and you can grab it right now for $3.99.
The way Ashworld works is that there is a top-down view in an outer world that can be endlessly explored. This top-down view will seamlessly shift to a 2D side-scrolling platformer view the second you enter any of the buildings you happen across while exploring the outer world. It’s a unique way to go about combining two popular genres into a crazy amalgamation of post-apocalyptic open-world survival gameplay and manic platforming action.
