Awesome game

Fun game! Lots to do...I love (almost) everything about it! The only problems I have is how you have to buy elements for levels. I wanted to save up for something else but I had to buy sand to beat the level so I could get mana...there's also a highly annoying glitch where if you stay on world long enough and set the temperature to very hot,
then put in virus, it will infinitely respawn. I tried replacing it and filling the whole screen with VOID and it still didn't stop it. And also, could you please tweak the humans a little? Just so they don't need more animals to kill every 10 seconds? Well that's all. Oh wait...this goes to the role players...can you PLEASE do that somewhere else? It gets really annoying...sorry

Easily one of the Best

Create machines, ecosystems, and adventures!

With plenty of interesting reacting elements and thousands of potential uses, your creation is only limited by your imagination.

Honestly there's still not quite 100 real elements, but theres more than enough interactions to keep you exploring and experimenting forever. You can make some pretty advanced Rube Goldberg machines if you know what you're doing, and if you're really good you can make it look like something else.

With all elements and forces of nature you can build beautiful, complex ecosystems that can change or recycle themselves (or burn to the ground, if you're into that, too).

When controllable elements were added, all these things were taken to another level. Avatars, action heroes, ninjas, superheroes, and a robotic brain all allow you to jump into the world you created and play through adventures set up by yourself and other people.

Saving and sharing could use some work, I can't delete the right ones when I want to, and there's no way to "fave" other people's creations.

Game is broken

Yes, this game is INTENDED to be great. The reality is that 1/3 of the missions are impossible to complete, thus making you to spend valuable mana on skipping the levels. First I thought that I'm doing something wrong, but after watching tons of walkthrough videos and reading forums I just realized, that something's wrong with the game itself. Also, I can't visit gallery, it just crashes the app. I won't buy a thing from you before you fix it, I don't want to pay for unplayable stuff. Hope you'll update soon, but chances are slim as you got tons of good reviews which make me think they are paid, because if game doesn't work properly for one man - it shouldn't for all the others.
