The new mobile game Crying Suns is now available for iOS and Android devices. Originally developed for PC and Mac back in 2019, Crying Suns is a science-fictional adventure game that was developed by the indie game developer Alt Shift. The game’s premium price is $8.99 on the mobile store, which is $16 cheaper than on the popular game distribution service, Steam. Though some mobile users may be skeptical of the quality for the price, Alt Shift’s previous mobile game Slay the Spire has a 4.3 out of 5 ratings on the App Store. Therefore, the game may be worth a shot to try out.
If you are unfamiliar with the game, Crying Suns has an interesting storyline. According to Alt Shift, the game has “a deep and dramatic storyline that is divided into six chapters that was inspired by the S-F universes (Foundation, Dune, and Battlestar Galactica).” In addition, users can experience battleship/squadron battles and explore mysterious landscapes as a space fleet commander. As the space fleet commander Admiral Ellys Idaho, the user’s objective is to reach the planet of ice and rock and a top-secret facility that can be the last hope for humanity. With over 300 stories and events in the procedurally-generated world, users will need to skillfully command the battleship and reach their destination with minimal mistakes. “Prepare to die very often, it’s a roguelite game… And it’s a hard one…” quote Alt Shift.
Despite the initial release on the PC and Mac, the game has meticulous redesigns for the mobile and tablet versions. This includes a newly designed user interface for better navigation with an intuitive touchscreen feature. The game also supports languages for various players: English, French, German, Spanish, Simplified Chinese, and Japanese.
