  • Fully upgradeable hovercrafts with hundreds of combinations

  • Original Soundtrack by Bravendary

In the Press

Controlling your hovercraft feels right. You can accelerate, brake and turn without any trouble, but you also have some interesting new mechanics to use when exploring. ...The controls in SmuggleCraft are stellar, offering all the floaty maneuvers you could need to explore.”

Alex Carlson, HardcoreGamer

All I know is: this game was fun.”

Paul 'Soterios' Wareheim, ReadyUpLive

[A] feeling of quirky randomness flowed through all aspects of the game, giving it a light-hearted fun that I really enjoyed.”

Josh Boykin, GotGame.com

I was hooked. There was a distinct Wipeout feel to the control scheme and ship handling. Drifting around corners felt directional and not tractional, appropriate for a hovercraft. The inclusion of a strafe ability also lent to degree of finesse that many games with similar vehicles need but almost always lack.”
