Dodge the taxman in this stylish Zelda-like game
Turnip Boy Commits Tax Evasion is a popular Zelda-like indie that originally launched on consoles and PC, and the game recently landed on Xbox Game Pass. Here’s the thing, as of this morning, Turnip Boy appeared on the Google Play Store for pre-registration, which means the game is coming to Android. It’s a title that features a fun and quirky adventure about a turnip causing havoc in his community for failing to pay his taxes, setting up the adventure of the game where you’ll explore dungeons in an effort to repay these taxes.
The trailer above dates back to 2021 for the PC and Nintendo Switch release, so it may not be fully representative of the upcoming mobile game. Still, it should easily provide a solid idea of what to expect from the mobile title. As you can see, Turnip Boy Commits Tax Evasion draws heavily from the Zelda series, with its top-down view and familiar action combat. Of course, the goofy atmosphere of a vegetable skipping his taxes is a big part of the draw, so expect a healthy dose of humor.
Since not much has been revealed about this mobile version, we just have to continue on what is included in the Play Store list. Game screenshots show touch controls with a virtual thumbstick on the left and a few buttons on the right of the screen, so touch controls are a given, although there’s no mention if support of the controller will be included. We also don’t know how the game will be monetized or when it will launch. Nevertheless, if you are interested in the main features of the game, you can find them below.

While none of the above features are surprising since the console and PC versions offer the same content, it’s a good signal that we’re getting a port and not a mobile rendition. Keep in mind that this is a short game that takes around 2 hours to beat; Although reviews have remained positive since its release, it’s a good sign that gamers were happy with their purchases.
