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.

● Use one of the many Interactive Bodies to connect with it: Dragon, Spaceship, Plane, Flying Car, UFO, Train, Drill, Mechcloud and Kamikaze Drone; or make your own multi-pixels combination with existing elements and all modules available: Gravity, Tilt, Buttons, Pulsor, Toggle etc.
● Cruise around in your sport car, transport elements with a truck, destroy the land with your tank… or ride throughout space in the Lunar Lander!

All elements/campaigns lost after update & now unstable as hell

Updated this to the latest version and all my previous unlocked materials / campaigns / elements are gone. Yes they offered extra mana to get stuff back (which I am still waiting for... a week so far.. not got high hopes here) but that doesn't include slogging thru the more annoying campaigns like pixel art. Whatever they've done to this game it's now unstable as hell & keeps crashing when trying to create things. This 1-star review is proportionate in response to these epic blunders. Do you even bother testing anything before releasing it?!

Good game plz read be for skip

Plz make an update I was very exited for this update and I go on to create and all my items were deleted now I had bought some mana and all of the stuff I got is deleted so it's a waste of money from my pocket money for some mana

Good but....

If you want to have the fun (the missions) you have to pay for them. I understand they need to make a profit but I just want to play some missions without paying!
