Description

Build quaint island towns with curvy streets. Build small hamlets, soaring cathedrals, canal networks, or sky cities on stilts. Block by block.

No goal. No real gameplay. Just plenty of building and plenty of beauty. That’s it.

Townscaper is an experimental passion project. More of a toy than a game. Pick colors from the palette, plop down colored blocks of house on the irregular grid, and watch Townscaper’s underlying algorithm automatically turn those blocks into cute little houses, arches, stairways, bridges and lush backyards, depending on their configuration.

Townscaper Reviews

We cant stop playing this game Even though it costs 5$ we bought it from the start and we are never finishing this and we think you should keep on going with this game And also we are very relaxed and this is our scale from one to ten 10000000/10.


Im really loving this more than we had initially thought we would. Theres something so addictive about experimenting and figuring out what looks good and how we can expand our little town. We would like to echo something another reviewer said in terms of feature requests: An option for a more manual experience. We like how the game flows, but sometmes there’s something specific we want but the construction of the game doesn’t allow it to work out. We think it’d be cool to have a sort of feature paintbrush, where you could put doors or windows on walls, turn brick floors into grasslands, etc.. We think this would be fantastic as we would love to place little parks in certain places without having to wall them in. Our other suggestion would be a way for us to navigate into tight spaces like tunnels so we can manipulate the architecture there. Right now its hard to get into tunnels as you have to line the camera up just right so you can kinda see in. Maybe a good way to allow for this would be to put a controllable marker (maybe looking like a chess piece as it could fit the aesthetic of the game) and allowing us to take control of it and view the world from first person that way. While using it, it would act as a first person controller with all the current controls working as it. Then when we release from it, it gets put away and we get put back into the regular camera controls/angles. Otherwise like we said, this is really really enjoyable and fun. The look is fantastic and its very relaxing. Youve done a fantastic job, keep up the great work! Im excited to see what features we get moving forward!


OH MY GOSH! This app is so awesome! It is so relaxing we think you deserve money!:-) this is the best game ever we think it was so worth it! We mean 4.99? It is the most Worth it app in the world! Thank you so much for making this app!


This app is well worth the money. We really enjoy creating the townscapes. It is calming and therapeutic. Request: we would love to see little people popping up and moving around our town (like the pigeons). That would be the icing on the cake! Thanks!


This app is very fun , And we also we joyed all the visual effects! But we just wish we had peoples in the game, and it would be better if we could build the inside of the house. But great app !


This app is amazing! We actually bought it for the Switch first and loved it so much we wanted to be able to do it without our Switch so we bought it again which we didnt mind spending the extra money if it meant supporting the creators! We hear what people are saying with wanting to add more features like parks, etc. But we actually like how limited the features are so you have to really be creative and use your imagination. We do wish that there was a way to change the color of existing buildings without having to destroy a building and rebuild it. Our only other suggestion is we think it would be cool to add a timelapse feature (like Procreate has) that records your progress as youre building so that you can go back and watch your progress from the beginning. We think that would be a fun way to bookend the features in this fun, relaxing experience!


We’ve been looking for a game like this since Anno for iOS went away. We were worried about buying it without a trial as we’ve tried a few others and didnt like any of them. This is just what we needed. While this is beautiful in its simplicity and ease of use, we hope there are future expansions.


This game is so fun! And beautiful!


We really love this game its fun and addicting. While playing the game loved how to start off the house on the water it would start on concrete. But its not all the times we want pavement or concrete on our house so can you pls make pavement optional. So another idea we had is if like they were small boats or like tugboats we could be put in the game Ill be pretty cool.


This game is the best game ever here are our reasons why we recommend this. Now even though you have to pay five dollars its still very much worth it. Why we say this is that you can literally build whatever you want by just tapping once on you screen. Now this game does have some complexity about how you can create different objects or how you can create area or create grass in the game. Now this is just a little tip for people who just started or who are just not knowing what to do take a big group of houses make a circle out of them and grass will spawn. Also why we say this is the best game ever created is that we had nothing to play and we were searching the App Store we came across this game and we thought it was not very good but we decided to give it a try. But than we tried it and we were hooked immediately we were building away different buildings and towns or maybe even a neighborhood once. Then we also love the part where you can also save the code for your buildings or creations youve created into the app Notes if youre on an apple device. Thats pretty much it we had to say but all Im trying to say is if youre trying to find an app that is really good get this now.


Honestly we love the game but it just feels lonely maybe you could add people? It would be cool just to see people walking around the town talking goin back to their homes. (also btw we saw a trash can in-front of a door :/ besides that the game is great.


It would be great if there were more options like actual land or different types of land like sand or grass Would be a favorite game if you could have different building types like medieval or steampunk or modern buildingsmaybe food carts or market shops. Boats would also be a cool feature or maybe castle or wall type structures maybe you can place trees of benches It would be cool to make a pocket build style game with the amazing art style incorporated in Townscaper. It is absolutely great but it gets boring after a while of building.


This game is so relaxing and helps with our anxiety!


Its a great game. And we know this review will probably be lost in the thousands you probably get, but on that note. The cities feel too empty. Maybe a bit more life of some sort.


This game is seriously so good for our anxiety. It’s soothing, there’s no stress, and it’s easy to get "lost" in. Super happy. Thank you.


ICloud backup is needed, looking forward to it.


Just needs mobile controller support.


We really wish there were other ways to explore the towns we create. We wish we could just walk around in the towns we’ve made, the camera is effective enough to get around in the sky and build cities from afar, but it doesn’t really let you admire the city you’ve built or get good views. Also there should be a picture mode where all options on the screen disappear so that all you see is your town for a nice picture that doesn’t need any cropping.


We love this app!! Its intuitive, endlessly inventive, and gorgeous! Devs? Can you please work some little people into the app that will wander about in our creations? Thanks!


We’ve been playing this game for a day and it is already our second favorite game the simplicity and touch friendly controls allow you to create whats in your mind with great ease the only things we think could be improved is maybe like DLCs that have different building styles or something and the ability to walk around in your city would be incredible.


This game is awesome and chill however we do have a really cool suggestion. There is a lot of detail in the towns and it would be cool to experience it in a 1st person manner. Maybe by placing down a person to walk around the town.


We love this game so much its awesome it would be super cool if they added little people to live in the towns.


The game is great and we use it all the time to relive our stress and make cool cities but we have three nitpicks. 1.) The game is very out of your control so if you are looking for a complex city builder, this isnt the game for you (This isnt too much of a problem but can be frustrating at times). 2.) the game doesnt fit the price tag (I recommend $3). 1.) the camera and city building feels limited at times like the build limit and the weird camera setup. An overall 9/10.


We love this game we have it on our Switch, iPad and phone. We enjoy figuring out the ways to get stairs in certain areas depending on how we place the buildings. The only negative we would have to say would be we wish we could expand the world and just keep building. The graphics are lovely and calm. We love adjusting the light and seeing how it changes the way the town looks. We especially love when all the windows light up at night.


Overall, great aesthetics and a great atmosphere, but theres just not enough to the game to be worth $5. All you do is tap the screen to create buildings. Im not saying its a bad game but it should cost $0.99 or $1.99, not $4.99. Add more to the game for that price.


We love it a lot but we wish there where more items we could use instead of just a house like sand and a dock or things like that.


This building app is relaxing and allows your inner architect to come out. It would be great to have say, street light , tree and bush and grass options. Hopefully yall will add more detail stuff in the future.


This game is relaxing and fun but we feel it needs more. It needs townies walking around and little cars driving around town. Make it more fun please and put more options like road colors and decorations. Other than that, this game is great!


The game is pretty good so far however it needs people or something to roam the city. This add on would be dope because it would make the town a bit more lively. On top of that as mentioned in previous reviews, we do need a special tool that lets you delete a specific area quickly.


Was great for a while but nothing new added. Now it just repetitious, pretty, but repetitious. Do something new like adding underwater structures.


What learn after a minute in is all youll be doing for the whole game.


It takes so long to load that if you leave it loading it will turn off thats how long it takes to load please fix this thank you.


Very limited gameplay especially for the price.


We paid money for this game and it dukie.


Beautiful app, would be great if it could be used on the AppleTV. Our 8yo grandson and over 60 husband both like the app.


The UI and visuals are top notch. Just a few humble suggestions: 1) You have birds, it would make our towns feel more alive if you had auto generated people wandering the streets. 2) The ability to add a few more block types. Maybe things like ships for harbors, or a more castle like block to build that castle in the middle of town. (Theres no great way to build something like the top of castle walls) 3) maybe an option for building towns on land instead of water with some kind of hill building tool. Anyway those are just some ideas Im sure youve thought of. Keep up the great work!


It’s fun! However, not sure if much can be controlled other than colors and placements. It all seems to be random as to what is created, unless there are controls we don’t know about. Nevertheless, such a sweet game for all ages!


The game is nice, relaxing and addictive but it should have more to it, like different tile floors maybe people if not dogs/cats? It feels kinda sad when Im done making a town. Just an idea :)


What standard is this? The passive, constructive, world building type game. To some this may seem like a tech demo but its not. We’ve watched this game get built from the ground up over Twitter and we are so happy to get our hands on it. Now, does this game se feature-less? Sure. Thats your opinion. But this game isnt meant to be that type of game your imagining. This is a relaxation type game. If you are looking for THAT type of game, Osakas other game, Bad North will scratch THAT itch. Now, weather would be nice. Id love to see rain, or snow build up on the roofs, but its not needed. Once you turn on some Lo Fi, turn on some rain sounds and play this game, you will have so much fun. If more features come to this game, Ill be happy but Osaka, our dude. Thank you so much for this! You and Tiny Touch Tails are killing it and we respect that.


Really great but we think it would be great if there was cars and people walking around.


We’ve been a fan of Townscaper since we found it on Steam. We loved Bad North too. When we learned Townscaper had been added to the app store we did not hesitate to buy it and we would do it again. This is the perfect app to play when you are bored or stressed or if you just need to kill some time. There’s no strategy needed, no additional in-app purchases, no adds, and no bugs (that we’ve found at least), just the simple fun of creating with little-to-no effort. Townscaper is closer to art-making than game-playing, and if you’re like us and you enjoy just getting lost in building and creating worlds then this "game" is for you. We can’t recommend this app more. I’d give it 10 stars if we could. Do yourself a favor and download Townscaper.


This is a beautiful game. There is no point to it, which is why they refer to it as a toy; which is a pretty good description. It is interesting to see the different things that pop up. The doodads and knickknacks. The controls are very intuitive, which is awesome. Once you get going, you can create some very whimsical structures. In our minds eye, we see the people that live in the town: walking, riding small boats to deliver the mail or visit a neighbor. Im not saying to put these in the game, thats just where our imagination goes. Quickly you learn some of the rules. Im not going to tell you any because part of the fun is discovering them. It would be nice to see different architectural styles. Not all at the same time, but choose before you start. Like city brownstone, or medieval village. The seaside village, though, is perfect.


What a delight this is! Truly one of the most beautiful experiences on a mobile device! A true work of Art! Wish there was a way to hide the HUD. Still 5* Worthy!


Great game. Do you plan on adding new feature like roads, stores, vegitation?


We feel like there should be some more variety in what you can place and such. Like maybe a button that disables windows and doors on a piece you are placing. So that you dont get two to three doors on a two block house.


Very nice and calming. Just make a little town. Very Zen.


Definitely one of the best games to ever release on the App Store. Basically perfect. One thing that could be improved though is the map size.
