Unleash the power within with Playworld® Superheroes, a game that challenges every player to create and then become their own superhero! Enter a land in which craft and imagination unlock a new world of possibilities, and the limits of what’s possible are exploded by your unique creations!

Super-powered playtime begins in the treehouse, a crafting hub in which players let their creativity run wild! Paint, cut, build, and modify your ultimate superhero suit and logo, then jump from the calm tranquillity of the treehouse to the action-packed spectacle of Playworld - the land of your imagination! Under attack by the mischievous Golumites, Playworld needs a hero to save the land from certain destruction, could it be you?

Defeat playful enemies on the ground in intense moment-to-moment action, and jump back to the treehouse to craft new tools and gadgets to level up your powers, then take to the skies for the ultimate showdown with a towering intergalactic monster! Armed only with your imagination, you must skip between two worlds to save them both in a Hollywood blockbuster-styled extravaganza.

With NO in-app purchases or hidden costs of any kind, Playworld® Superheroes offers family-friendly entertainment at a pocket money price-point, offering parents peace of mind and a brand they can trust. Playworld inspires children to star in a blockbuster of their own creation, where adults see just cardboard boxes, children can see superheroes. With eco-friendly messages cloaked in craft and enjoyment throughout, Playworld® empowers a child’s creativity.

The first in a series of mobile adventures, Playworld® Superheroes marks the beginning of a journey with limitless possibilities.

Sweetmeat Jesus!

So whats the gameplay like? Can we get a longer video perhaps

If we could harvest human stupidity to run our electricity, and our cars, the world would see a new era of clean, renewable energy. That's an amazing resource we're wasting.

Thanks! It would appear we're going against the current trend, but we couldn't make the game we wanted to if we were trying to sell something to the players the whole time!
