The Blockheads is a game based on the famous Minecraft where your goal is the same as in the original: to survive using your skills and abilities – except in this game you always move forward, like in an endless runner.
In this game you face an unknown world, equipped with only a shovel, a wooden pick, and a couple sticks. Night is falling, and there’s not much else to do besides build a shelter with the items nature provides for you along the way. Since it’s a 2D game, when you go out into an adventure, there’s just one road to take. You either find what you need in a short time, or you have no choice but to use what you already have. Building a bed, creating a good shelter, or lighting a fire are all essential if you want to survive.
The app is very original and you need to pay attention to all the elements in the scene, trying to craft tools with the presented resources and always make sure the Blockhead is happy and healthy, putting their needs in a priority position by following the instructions presented on the screen, which can give you tips about how to speed up each process.
Majic Jungle Software is the developer of Blockheads, a wonderful little game with so much to do. There are many features and new tasks to take on at all times. The graphics are pixelled and perfect for the gameplay, which is challenging and makes you think, creating a great interface and scenery where there is a lot to explore and discover.
To interact with the scenario you just have to tap once on the corresponding block; your character will automatically dig, cut, or scratch, accumulating everything you can extract from it. You can use resources to craft items, and increase your chances of surviving the dangers of the night. The more achievements you discover, the easier it is to survive. You can paint the walls, cook meat, upgrade buildings, and everything else you’ve always done on Minecraft – but in a way you’ve never done before, and in 2D to boot.
We were surprised by the originality and detail provided by this app, which we highly recommend.
