School desks eat up a large portion of your free time again, and would you therefore like to play on laptops while you compete with your classmates? Alternatively, you need to take a break from work, but you can't start anything new on your work laptop? Crimsonland could help you in both cases. It's a traditional top-down shooter that bets everything on well-mastered game mechanics, a huge number of levels, weapons and monsters, and bloody satisfying gameplay.
From the very beginning, Crimsonland doesn't play games. It doesn't bother you with the story, it doesn't overwhelm you with elaborate or complicated graphics, and mechanically it is as primitive as it can be. You control a character who has found himself in the middle of a situation from which it is only possible to shoot through. And so you shoot in all directions, because problems are coming at you from all sides. Blood sprays in geysers, limbs and other body parts fly through the air.
The individual missions of the "campaign" aren't just about waves of enemies mindlessly rushing at you. Rather, on the contrary, each of them is in a way planned in advance and functions as a certain form of challenge. Enemies appear in a predetermined composition and are also cleverly designed in terms of movement, reproduction and attack. It means that you have to play each mission in a different way, because the tactics you mastered in the last mission may not work completely in the next mission. And don't be fooled by simple visuals or game mechanics - Crimsonland is a really hard game. 20%

spiders, zombies, and waves mode make this game more addicting than crack

Review from Steam

Class top down shooter without the modern junk of loot boxes, ads or anything else phone game like.
This game came out in 2003, and remastered for Steam in 2014. And even now in 2021 it's still worth it.

Review from Steam

Hands down my favorite game ever. I've purchased it on 6+ platforms at this point. Crimsonland doesn't do many things but what it does do is flawless yet very simple and perfect to pick up and put down over the span of 5 minutes or several hours. The survival, blitz, and waves are where the game shines most. Pick this game up if you chase leaderboards or like very simplified games. It does get repetitive after you complete the quest but its worth it when you know you may place higher on the leaderboards on the next try. There aren't many people asking for a direct sequel but I like to dream. This is a remaster/remake from 2003 (which is included with the purchase) I highly recommend this gem to everyone.

Roses are red,
Violets are blue,
Run from the spiders,
At quest 10 of chapter 2.

Review from Steam

Are you a Fan Weapons?
Do You like killing sh-it?
Do you hate spiders?
Dawg, I heard you liked Power ups n level ups
Think you will like Perks too
This is the Original game tat inspired Vampire, Nomad Survivors, except that you are being "Helpful" by shooting stuffs, collecting powerups, and selecting the perk that can save your life for a Highscore !
Yet I still want to include the pros:
1) Tons of Weapon
2) Tons of Mission
3) Tons of Perk
4) Tons of Powerup
5) Aside from quest, you got "Endless survivor " mode to play from after unlocking all the perks n weapons
Problems?
1) This game had a fk ton of gambling, n luck based mechanics... (it's like, sometimes you get OP perks, OP weapons, but then sometimes? You Failed again n again)
10/10 Get it before you Buy These idle Survival games

Review from Steam

Twin stick shooters are usually a great time for me. Dating back to Robotron 2084 in the arcades, I've long had an affinity for this breed of game when done well. Looking to scratch that itch, I picked up Crimsonland from my Steam backlog and gave it a twirl. First, I'll mention that it's an old game, originally released in 2003. So it isn't a modern-day looker, but I nevertheless found the visuals clean and impressive in their limited scope. There are a variety of ways to play from a quest mode with 70 levels along with three difficulties to a variety of survival modes and a Typing of the Dead kind of mode called Typ'o'Shooter. The main quest mode was fun and engaging. I finished the game on the first two difficulties, but 'grim' proved to be, well, grim. Hardcore - the middle difficulty - was a nice challenge as the levels progressed, causing the nice type of stress where you're so engaged that everything else falls away and you find yourself in a state of flow - a hallmark of a good twin-stick for me. The most fun I had with the game was in one of the survival modes called 'Blitz' though. It's an accelerated version of the regular survival mode where things amp up more quickly. The basics of this mode, and the main quest mode, is that you gain experience while playing stages, and that levels you up allowing you to select from a variety of 'perks' to aid your man with a plan. These perks can range from being radioactive, which causes sustained damage to the baddies in close proximity, to perks that grant you faster re-load, better firepower with your current weapon, faster experience, more power-ups appearing, having those power-ups be magnetized to your player causing them to float towards you, among many others. So as you level up and progress, there is this nice sense of strategy about picking the right type of upgrade, knowing that you'll have only so many as you try to stay alive as long as possible. It's also a fun type of lottery in the randomization of offered perks. On some chances to pick a perk, you'll not find anything that you're particularly interested in on the current run, and on others, you might want them all. There's also a perk to allow more perks to appear at each level gained, giving you a better chance to find just the right one. There's also a huge selection of weapons that drop in the killing spree. Some are significantly better than others, but most are viable, and many appear differently, both visually and in their practical/strategical application. There are also the aforementioned power-ups that are dropped which can really lead to greater havoc. From nuclear bombs that clear out big hordes around you, to spinning waves of fire, slow motion, increased movement speed, freezing all enemies, health bonuses and on and on, there are many beneficial drops that you want to desperately pick up - if you can get to them. When you're in a zone and you've got the right set of perks and power-ups dropping with hordes surrounding from all sides, the screen really comes alive in a beautiful dance of frenetic chaos that keeps you poised on the edge of your seat. Overall, I really had a good time with this in the 17 or so hours I played with it. It's not the cream of the crop in the genre, but it's great fun and I'm very happy I gave it some of my time. I can see myself returning for another set of runs on Blitz mode from time to time just to see if I can climb higher on the leader boards or just for the sheer enjoyment of the action. Recommended. 4/5.
