Did you hear that? Sounds like footsteps on the roof, doesn't it? Well, I hate to break it to you, but I think you're about to get robbed. It's way too early for Santa!

But before you go, how does a free game sound? I mean, you're going to need everything you can get after all your stuff's been nicked.

Cheer up though, as Pocket Gamer's giving away free codes for the best premium games which launched this year on mobile courtesy of its very own Advent Calendar.

From December first right the way through to Christmas Day itself, we'll be giving away one of these a day for a select few readers who sign up to the App Army.

If you know the drill by now, read on to learn why you're a fool for not playing Crashlands this year.

How do lands crash into each other?

I think you might have missed the point. Crashlands is the name of a game which kicked 2016 off in fine form. It blends Minecraft with Don't Starve to create an awesome crafty adventure which put a bit more of the focus on combat than its two influencers.

Essentially, it's a crafting RPG. You play as Flux Dabes, a space trucker who crash lands on an alien planet while delivering a shipment, and has to craft his way to survival.

There's also plenty of exploration, combat, and creatures to tame as you traverse the enormous world. There's just so much to do.

At review, we gave it the coveted Gold Award and said: "A brilliant survival adventure through a hostile alien world. Crashlands is funny, fun, and well worth the hours you'll lose in it".

Okay, I'll give it a shot
