A new Crash Bandicoot mobile game titled Crash Bandicoot Mobile was just launched without much fanfare. The game is free, and currently only available to Malaysian players. CNET reports that the game is likely launching it in Malaysia first as a beta test, before a much larger global rollout. 

As far as gameplay goes, Crash Bandicoot Mobile is an endless runner in the vein of popular mobile games like Temple Run and Subway Surfer. You essentially just swipe the screen to avoid obstacles and tap it to have Crash do a spin attack. There are different environments to play through, including Turtle Woods, Lost City and Temple Ruins, with each level having hidden paths for players to discover. 

Check out gameplay below:

There also seems to be a base-building and item-crafting aspect to the game, which is likely where those pesky microtransactions will come in. Crash Bandicoot Mobile is developed by King, the same studio behind the Candy Crush franchise, so you can expect some time-wasting elements to show up eventually as well. 

Either way, the game is free so it might be worth a shot - though it’s only available on Android devices for now. Crash Bandicoot fans outside of Malaysia might just have to wait to get their hands on this one, as well as that other heavily rumoured Crash Bandicoot game in development.
