App description: The Best - If you want minecraft with good graphics this is it. This game is very easy to use, it responds fast and has great potential. Really could do with a multiplayer as some really good and big worlds could be made. Over all great and polished app. Nice update they listen to what people want. If you don't care about the multiplayer then this is the best world builder you can get. Another great update well worth 5 stars now as I sense multiplayer is only a matter of time. Another great update, the painting tool is just right and now you can upload your world and download other worlds, excellent." - Mark dragon.

"Awesome! - I swear when they added rideable dragons this game got all the more better, but... What if you could fight them! Along with other creatures and monsters. The addition of food, more animals, survival mode,chests, loaded in structures like castles in which you can fight the dragons in would make this game absolutely amazing!" - BlueViper222

"Almost Perfect - The game is awesome! Dragons are amazing! The only thing this game is missing is multiplayer! Survival isn't as important as playing this game with my brothers!!!Please add multiplayer" - Nezar Shahin

"Best Game Ever!!!!! - This game is 100% better than minecraft the graphics are so much better! The shadowing, the lighting, and the brick details!!! Get this game!(unless you like mining this game is unlimited building) the price beats minecraft $4.99 or $1.99? If you just like to build realistic structures without having to get the materials this is the game for you!!!!" - "P"

Anyone know if this is legit? Pretty small app size... But it has gotten positive reviews so far on the AppStore.

Holy crap.

Kept seeing this advertised on TA web pages and stumbled upon it during my occasion "craft/junk jack/mine/voxel" AppStore searches. Seemed much like the handful of other crappy minecraft wannabes. Until now I've stuck with minecraft and junk jack. Eden disappointed me each time and mai crafted also let me down (and wtf is with that install size lol).

Just took the plunge on this, I swear it surprised the shit outta me. I'm playing it on my iPad mini just in case there's a difference between devices, but it looks hella good. The draw distance is staggering, I just switched to MCPE and it was like looking at a last gen game with terrible fog and awful textures. This game looks amazing in comparison, it's smooth too. Really didn't expect this.

No crafting, no extras apart from torches and ladders, no cloud saves or sharing maps over wifi. But damn its a good creator, MC has the survival thingy covered but as far as I'm concerned this is the best world builder I've seen on a tablet.

Not sure if this has worked but hopefully there's a screenshot of each attached in this post

EDIT: damn, didn't do both, well for comparison, this is from block earth, I haven't touched the map, this is what it generated for me upon starting a new world, and from what I could tell the world is vast/limitless? Segments loaded up without pausing gameplay as I moved towards an edge

My friends love playing this game, and I haven't tried it. Any free version of this game?

Sadly not, it's a set price for the main game and there's an optional IAP for a better jet pack and three world skins that change the textures.

Here's a screenie of MC for quick comparison.

Whoa, this does look great. I just took the plunge. I usually don't for 1.99 games but this looks awesome, and with smartbomb's impressions I couldn't resist.

Which is better, this or Eden?

Wow, this is sure good-looking. Man, it's almost gorgeous in my eyes. I love the little jetpack thing and blowing things up with the rocket launcher. There's not a lot to do, it's basically Eden with a rocket launcher and a jetpack and better graphics.

There's also IAPs for different worlds, Alien, Retro and Doodle, and for a better Jetpack. Or you could buy all IAPs in an "Essentials pack" for 2.99, if you want.

So if you like building block type games like Minecraft or Eden, I'd say grab this one!

I'm reinstalling EDEN to refresh my mind, it may well have improved since I last played it. But ATM I would have to say this x 1000000. I think the only thing EDEN has over block earth is online map sharing. As it is, you can only edit and view your map on the device you created it on, perhaps though this will change?
