Morphite, the sci-fi planetary exploration game from Crescent Moon Games, We’re Five Games, and Blowfish Studios is now available on Android. Morphite focuses on atmospheric exploration of alien worlds and mixes in first person shooter and platforming elements. Players are tasked with exploring procedurally generated worlds as they scan new species, discover new locations, and navigate the alien landscape.
While Morphite features combat and players can choose to attack the creatures they stumble upon, it is not necessarily the main focus on the game. Not all creatures that players encounter are hostile, and players can simply scan other life forms instead of starting a fight. While the game’s universe is procedurally generated, the game also offers 15 pre-built planets that are part of the game’s story mode.
Morphite was originally released in September 2017 on Playstation 4, Xbox One, PC, and iOS. It was released earlier this month on the Nintendo Switch. The PC console editions of the game are $14.99 while the iOS version is $7.99.
Morphite is free to try and does not contain any ads but if you want to unlock the full game you will need to pay a few bucks. Here is an excerpt from the game’s Google Play description and a trailer with more information:
Set in the farthest reaches of the cosmos, Morphite follows the adventures of Myrah Kale, a young space station worker whose life takes a turn for the extraordinary after a routine mission turns into a heroic journey to find the mythical substance Morphite and to discover its connection to her mysterious past.
Myrah will explore uncharted galaxies teeming with alien life, though she must remain on guard. Real-time space combat is just as likely as meetings with friendly explorers willing to trade resources. The main quest is set on painstakingly detailed hand-crafted planets while millions of procedurally-generated worlds each offer a plethora of side missions.
