Crux: The Great Outdoors lets you climb using precision timing and proper route planning, out now on mobile

In case you missed it, Mindgames Studios has announced the official launch of Crux: The Great Outdoors, the sequel to the hit mobile climbing game, Crux. As the original game was meant to be about climbing outside, the sequel now fulfils that goal by taking players out of the gym and into the outdoors.

Crux: The Great Outdoors features timing-based puzzles, flat shaded 3D and handcrafted levels that will put any mobile climber's skills to the test. You'll have to balance holding on for a certain amount of time with planning the best route to take.

The response to the launch was at least one order of magnitude larger than we dared to hope for,” said Ben Dressler of MindGames about Crux. “We could quickly see that people wanted two things: Better route setting and harder problems to climb. So it was obvious that we needed to connect these players by handing people the tools to find and access each others’ routes and give feedback.”
