Atomicrops for Xbox One (Videogame Review)


Modern city life got you down? Well, you've just inherited your late uncle's farm, time to pack your bags and start fresh in the peaceful countryside. What could possibly go wrong? A nuclear apocalypse, that's what. Now you're in a hellscape wasteland defending the last surviving source of sustenance - your crops. And every mutant wants a piece. Do as any self-respecting farmer would: Farm. Marry. Kill.
Atomicrops is an action roguelite farming simulator. Armed with your hoe, a watering pail, and a simple peashooter, you must grow mutated crops - atomicrops - to feed the local town… and make a hefty profit. Defend your land from the mutant pests and bandits that invade nightly to ravage your fields. Court and wed townsfolk to fight and farm by your side. Gather upgrades and rescue captured farm animals to increase productivity, profits and power. Develop your farmhouse for persistent bonuses across playthroughs to help secure your place on the leaderboards.

If you're looking for a cute indie game to play, Atomicrops would definitely be on my top ten. It gives me a sense of nostalgia because of Terraria's similar style of NPCs, bosses, and mobs. But, some sort of Stardew Valley vibe with the farming aspect as your main goal. I absolutely love the currency in this game! As well as the options to 'haggle' or flirt with the shopkeepers. As a grinding based game, it hits all the right spots to keep you intrigued and for the player to keep playing. Will definitely continue to grind out this game.

FARM. Grow mutant crops and reap a bountiful harvest to sustain humanity… and make a huge profit.

MARRY. Woo and marry a kindred spirit from the local town to fight and farm alongside you.

KILL. Fight bizarre post-nuclear pests starving for a piece of your crops at night. Hunt and forage in dangerous surrounding biomes for seeds and loot during the day. Turn your enemies into fertilizer to increase your crops quality.

UPGRADE. Explore the far reaches of the biomes to find useful relics of farms long past. Discover rusty farm equipment, antique gardening tools, and tomes of how-to garden guides to increase your farming power. Spend your money in town to upgrade your gun and abilities. Permanently upgrade your farm house for bonuses that persist across playthroughs.

BEFRIEND. Recruit an entourage of pig pals, chicken chums and cow colleagues to automate farming tasks. Cultivating atomicrops is a tough job, you'll need all the help you can get.

I had such a fun time playing this game from start to finish and I definitely recommend it to anyone looking for a new game to play. Now available, you can find Atomicrops available on Playstation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch and PC!
