App description: You are marooned on the shores of an infinite blocky world. Explore, mine resources, craft tools and weapons, make traps and grow plants. Tailor clothes and hunt animals for food and resources. Build a shelter to survive cold nights and share your worlds online. Ride horses, camels or donkeys and herd cattle to protect them from predators. Blast your way through the rock with explosives. Build complex electric devices. Possibilities are infinite in this long-running sandbox survival and construction game series.

This is the thirtieth release of Survivalcraft, and it adds a new armor and weapons tier - copper! You can now paint stairs, slab, fences and signs and place electric gates on the floor or ceiling. Wander in dense forests full of tall spruces and fallen logs. Explore bigger caves, but watch out for huge magma chambers underground (15x bigger than 1.28). There are new sound generator sounds for you to use, including hi-fi drums! Check out full list of 70 changes at game webpage.

Survivalcraft brings features you love in the PC version of the most famous blocky game to your mobile device: infinite worlds, caves, logic elements (electricity), weather, boats, ridable animals, explosions, clothes, armor and many more. It does so while maintaining its own realistic, survival-themed style.

Love survivalcraft, was playing on my android, now I will play my worlds on the iphone and ipad, survivalcraft is far superior to minecraft, minecraft pocket edition while you do not have infinite worlds will be a boring game, I hope that updates survivalcraft do not delay to get equal the minecraft pocket edition

Just popping in to say that this game is really fantastic, I don't own an iOS device any more but I've been playing it on Windows Phone and following its development since it was released.
It has full texture pack support (including HD texture packs), you'll find plenty if you visit the Survivalcraft forums.
World sharing and community support is there as well, not sure exactly how it works on iOS but there's a great community section full of user made content.
The world is truly infinite, performance is fantastic, there is a TON of features, including instructional guides and an encyclopedia for quick reference,
And the developer is fully committed to development, if you're interested I highly recommend checking out the blog.

Downside, no multiplayer yet, upside, full electrical system support with logic gates (although no pistons), as well as horse riding and cattle herding.
Go check it out!

Games I have beta tested: Minigore, Cogs, Guerilla Bob, Above and Beyond: Air Combat, Baseball Superstars 2010, 33rd Division, Cash Machine, 5 star General, Flick Football... Possibly some other ones I;ve forgotten

This is a great MC based game. It's very polished and playable.

I just got struck by lightening in the game and died. Time to put a roof on my domicile !
