Imagine crafting your own world (complete with amazing Pixel Art), playing with Humans, Ninjas, Robots or Zombies, composing your own music and much more! The universe is yours to create or destroy, and the only limit is your imagination!

Start from scratch with basic building blocks like stone, water and soil. Grow plants, raise mountains, generate life and gain access to advanced tools for crafting more and more complex elements. Before long, you’ll be able to access non-organic elements like metal and light bulbs, allowing you to populate your universe with creations both natural and technological.

What's New in Version 1.99987

Ever wanted to pit Giant Monsters against each other in a world you made yourself? Discover the power of the MutaGem, and experiment with it on living elements! You can even use the MindRay to control them and fight yourself!

- A new element, the MutaGem, that has the power to transform living beings into monsters.
- A campaign of 18 levels will begin when you discover the MutaGem, deep inside the devastated nuclear wasteland you find at the end of the Ecology 2 campaign. This adventure will transport you through many different places, as you learn to release the power of the MutaGem's capabilities, the Giant Monsters it can create, and take control of them with the help of the MindRay.
- The Aberrations: failed products of the MutaGem that hate the world and will try to crush anything that moves.
- 1 New Animal, the Earthworm. Usually found in soil or mud, ocasionally goes to the surface out of curiosity. He's the Catalyst for the DoomGrub Element.
- 1 New Enemy, the Robodrile. Behaves just like the Crocodile, but thanks to its enhanced durability and mechanical upgrades any target within range will be no match for the missiles it shoots from its mouth.
- 2 new Mutant Monsters that are born from the fusion between living elements and the MutaGem:
- Haijira, the likable and gigantic grey Dinosaur, that strikes with its tail and lets off a deadly blue Atomic Breath.
- MechaRex, the mechanical counterpart of Haijira, a Cyborg T-Rex that strikes with its mouth and fires a scorching red Laser Breath.
- The MindRay, a weapon that will allow you to take control of the Giant Monsters and fight the world (including other monsters!)

Some more heroes:

Shrink Man: can shrink to two pixels tall and one pixel wide

And able to control the avatar, ninjas, and brainiac, together with the other controllables


This game is so cool, i only play this game on my phone! But it needs more adventure and a controllable wizard. And maybe dragons and a dragon pet element that you can feed train and battle your dragon with another bad dragon. And dragons would need to have their elements. EXAMPLE: fire dragon, ice dragon, lighting dragon, water dragon... Every dragon would have a special power and
a power of it's element. Oh and again very cool game!!!!! :)

Good Game, But Need More Content

This is a great game, don't get me wrong! But I very commonly find myself running out of room whilst making a large build. There should be a scale feature to move left, right, and up for people that are like me that normally want to (and sometimes try to) build a large world. Please add this in! [Rating: 4.4/5]
