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)

As the UI is OpenGL it probably wouldn't be hard to port the game itself to Android, but that wouldn't let you do cross platform multiplayer because it's done using Apple's Game Center.

Big company that they are, I suspect Majic Jungle would rather concentrate on iOS.

How DARE you. How can you even compare some stupid 2.5D game to Minecraft? This is unacceptable.

To me, junk jack is in the same league as minecraft, and its 2d.. Possibly even better than miney. But I've only played the iOS minecraft so I could be biased. I sank way more hours into junk jack than I did minecraft pocket edition, and I paid like $9 for minecraft and not even half that for junkie.

Ill give this one a go. I was going to ignore it when I thought it was just a junk jack clone, but the hunger bars interest me. Could be a nice new sims spin on minecraft.

Nothing will ever beat Crafted.

Kidding aside, this is a fantastic game so far, I really like the control scheme. However, I keep placing blocks instead of moving - need to get used to that!

Why don't the timer bars count down when you close the app like the rest of the time management games on the App Store?

I'm liking this but the waiting is killing me, might grab junk jack when it gets widescreen support.

I was lucky enough to be a beta tester for The Blockheads. I can't rave about it enough. The controls are great (just click where you want to go or what you want to do). The crafting progress you make is really engaging. Digging/mining and building stuff is really cool (I just built a skyscraper).

I'm a game developer too & the game dev "sickness" is that we typically only play a few minutes of any game then move on. I keep playing The Blockheads and I love it. It's a brilliantly designed and very polished game. Get it!
