Impressions so far:

While this game may seem like a great minecraft clone it is missing some very basic block ability that I believe hurts the game amd it's creativity, especially considering it is meant just to build. These things include
All blocks break at the same speed (leaves and stone will take the same amount of time to break)
You cannot place over items such as mushrooms (you must first remove the mushroom to place any block in its place instead of being able to instantly overwrite it)
Items such as tiles cannot be placed on the top "edge" of another block, only the lower section
Multiple doors cannot be placed to open separate ways creating a large entrance.
Movement is slow, but water movement is even worse, literally feeling like a crawl. I personally can handle the regular movement but water movement is absurd.
Moving slightly sometimes cancels breaking a block which already is slow.
If you place a block in the wrong spot (or any block that is) it is around 4-5 seconds to remove it, way to long

However there are some good aspects to the game:
Community is there, though seemingly it's a younger crowd and not a huge surprise with this type of Game
Block placement works well with a good range
Coordinates make it easy to travel and know where you've been working
Teleport is very nice
Chat seems alright, though I've not used it but once.
Zoned areas helps slow the spam from other players

Pretty much if you like building on a casual level this game could be for you. However, if you're one of those minecraft or survival craft players that believe in sophisticated structures I fear you would be agitated with the block breaking time, tile placement, door placement and maybe some other minor things that could be fixed by the dev.
