I thought you forgot about this app but it's nice to see an update once every what, 5 years? i still have glitches and bugs that are annoying every. single. time. 9 out of 10 worlds i make have no pigking (RoG). deerclops, bearger and dagronfly NEVER SPAWN. NEVER. i've only seen moose goose i don't know the reason behind that. the world generation is messed up it's supposed to be random but these are utterly stupid isn't there a way to make world gen be random but make sense at the same time?? all the paths become one ball that concentrates in one area of the map what's the point of roads that go in circle? using the pitchfork is a pain, you cant move if you have it equiped because it ignores the joystick. you can't have walls around your base because if an enemy is inside your base and you want to attack your character goes and attacks the wall like, why is attacking walls automatic? could there be a "dig" button below "attack" and grab" and only appears when you have a pitchfork or shovel that way you press it and it just digs the flooring below the character or with the shovel it digs the thing below the character that way you dont go to pick up a sapling and accidentally dig it because you were using the shovel.

Controller support made this playable.

I'm a huge fan of the game on PC and I'm happy to finally be able to play it mobile now that I can use a controller. Prior to the last update I could not play because of how painful and badly designed mobile controls were. Many people say this game is a copy of Minecraft, however it is far from it, Minecraft is a sandbox digital Legos game while this game is a challenging survival game with a unique art style and interesting mysterious backstory to uncover and speculate about. Everything about this game, from the art and audio to the way the wildlife interacts with the player, has a ton of detail built into it. It is well worth the original $5 price (as long as you can grab a controller) and anything less is a steal!

Really great game, although impossible, but still fun

This game is incredibly fun to play. The name basically says it all, except you also don't want to die a horrible and tragic demise(although that happens every time...). The controls are... different, but are intuitive and easy to get used to, and may just be better than any other kind of controls. The graphics are really neat, and at the same time the game runs incredibly smoothly. Playing the game, though, although very fun, is frustrating because either I'm bad at it, or its impossible.
