"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)

Looks quite promising. Been quite a while since the devs of the Chopper series released something new.

Uh oh I've just been playing it for half an hour and I can see this stealing a lot of my time it feels like a cross between minecraft and the sims, because there's crafting but also sleep and hunger and energy bars etc. haven't played enough to give more impressions yet but early signs are its looking good.

I really like it but the fact that you have a timer each time you craft something is... Ugh! It's not that big of a deal but just the fact that it's there and that I could have payed a premium price to have the game without them is frustrating.

It's not like junk jack or minecraft and it's actually quite unique. You press anywhere on the screen and your character will go there or mine there etc.. It works well as a casual experience and it means that you can actually prepare what to do next while your blockhead is busy. You can also chain tasks to be even more efficient. Your character is able to grip any surface.
Another quick thing: if you break a block, everything on top of it will fall. That's really neat especially when you need to bring down a tree.
