App description: "On an iPhone or iPad, the 2-D, side-scrolling block-based sandbox is a winning formula, and The Blockheads is the most well-executed, true-to-Minecraft game I've had the pleasure to experience on iOS." - TouchArcade (5 Stars)

"The Blockheads takes the Minecraft experience and shrinks it down in a way that just works on a touchscreen. There are shades of Lemmings here too, and they blend together to make a sweet game about discovery, exploration, and creation." - Pocket Gamer (Gold Award)

*****

The Blockheads is a huge exploration, creation and survival game where the possibilities are endless.

Play offline in single player, or easily create and join online worlds to play with friends and family, or explore thousands of unique worlds created and hosted by other players.

Start with almost nothing and explore, craft, build and trade your way to steam trains, electric elevators, and even jet packs, titanium swords and carbon fiber armor.

- Explore an infinite number of worlds filled with oceans, caves, deserts, mountains, forests and floating sky islands
- Build massive structures with the materials you find
- Trade with other players in an ever changing global economy
- Battle other blockheads in PVP worlds
- Lay rail and create jumps for speedy rail hand cars or create a rail network for easy transport by train
- Create an array of solar panels to power your oil refinery, and craft carbon fiber and fuel for your jetpack to explore the skies
- With content always being added, The Blockheads is continuously evolving, and there is more to come

Warp your first blockhead through the portal and get exploring now in the growing phenomenon that is The Blockheads!

About the timers, they make really sense when you got more than one dude.
Because then you can queue up tasks for one guy, and switch to the other to do sthg else.
It wouldn't work with more than one Blockhead whitout timers, because then you'll always have one idle dude!
And I don't buy IAP usually, but here the half timer permanent item looked to me like the paid version of the game vs a free demo I enjoyed.

I've built a base near the portal. I sent one of my BH for a trip around the world, but first I made him a few chests with a level one of all the benches, and a little bit of evthg plus empty chests for the goodies he'll bring back. The trick to put chests in your basket is very useful indeed

Now in game ads for other games?
This is what I hate about Freemium games with no option to become a 'paid' app.
It makes me rather play games I paid full price for that have no extra purchases or ads...

Quick question. Is there a bug when buying your second guy or something? When I had just my one blockhead, he took maybe 30 second or so to fill his energy (when sleeping in a bed). Then I bought my second blockhead in, now 2 or 3 minutes sleeping in bed gains me only a few pixels worth of energy. At this rate it would take a half hour to fill up my energy. wtf? That cant be right? Surely I have done something wrong, or not understanding something? The game just ruined itself for me if I cant undo this..

Don't worry, there's nothing wrong, when a blockhead sleeps time passes faster. If you have 2 or more blockheads and you put only one to sleep or meditate time won't go fast. Allowing you to manipulate the awake one, so in order to do it fast you need to put them all to sleep or put one to sleep and the other to meditate. By the way, a tip, when a blockhead is meditating he/she does not suffer from hunger nor loss of energy, VERY useful. And also you can gain free stuff by meditating.
