Craftimals: Build to the Sun
Craftimals: Build to the Sun is a game in which you take control of a small, cute animal of your choosing and (as the title suggests) begin building your way to the sun. I’ll be honest, it doesn’t sound like a really fun premise, but I’ll be damned if it isn’t addicting. The game starts off easily, putting the goal just outside your reach and then gradually moving it farther and farther away. It may sound boring, but after the first couple of times you reach the goal, you become driven to reach the next one. A big part of why it’s so addicting are the unlockables that range from a higher block carrying capacity to new hats for your animals. Another great thing about the game is that, if you get bored playing single-player, you can make the jump to multiplayer, which allows two players to play however they want and is totally fun. My only real complaint about the game is that sometimes it feels like you’re spending too much time climbing your “Stairway to Heaven” and not enough time building. It is a small gripe, however, and I cannot suggest Craftimals highly enough.
