The exploration reminds me of Civ1/Civ3 huge maps when you began a game with one settler and sent a scout discovering.

The map is insanely huge o_O
I sent a dudette around the globe, and 3 days later, she's still not back home, just has seen 2 Poles! I think I'll skip the caves to get her home with her 4 full chests!

And the caves are enormous and deep.
I sent my other dude digging down at a bottom of a huge one and 30 blocks later, there was another gigantic cave with my first gold mine
He'll go home now, time to upgrade the benches and tools and collect those precious crystals I left for better gem axes

I'll build a big bridge as in San Francisco, but over the whole sea. That way I can go walking from one continent to another

Someone posted here earlier that the world is 1000 blocks top to bottom and 15,000 blocks horizontal.
So it might take a while to get to the centre of the earth.

Alrighty, so... Even with all of the crashing issues that I had, I kept trying to play. Since the game always picked up right where it crashed, it wasn't too big of a problem, more of an inconvenience.

Until now...

After about 8 hours of gameplay, while doing some light renovations on my HUGE house, the game crashed. Now whenever I try and start the game up, it loads, and then crashes right when it's done loading.

All that time and work... And it's basically gone now.

Here you go, and as a sidenote, when you're very close to the magma/center of the earth, you start to steam, the surrounding area will be lit a little bit and you start taking damage. Don't worry to much about the damage though as you can't die. You can also walk on the magma.

I see you are running iOS 5.x try playing your own music (even if just the last 20 seconds of a track) while you are opening the game, the crashing on iOS 5.x is down to a glitch with in game music.
