The Blockheads Server
By Majic Jungle Software
Open the Mac App Store to buy and download apps.
Please note - this is not the full playable game of The Blockheads, but a server app to allow people on iOS devices to play together.
With this server app, up to 32 players can play The Blockheads together in persistent online worlds. Simply create a new world, give it a name, choose a port and hit start. Then anyone playing The Blockheads on your local network can connect, and (if your firewall allows) so can anyone online.

What's New in Version 1.4
This update adds multiplayer support for the 1.4 Trains & Technology update, and includes a number of new admin features.
New steam trains and handcars can zip around on vast rail networks. New copper wiring and electric workbenches and generators give you faster methods of crafting that use less fuel, and unlock new items. See the world through new eyes, with the beautiful new HD textures available for purchase. The new cave troll is a formidable enemy found deep in caves, but the new bow & arrow and tin and iron armor will help your cause. And the new magical portal chests let you transport items instantly across the world, or even take items between worlds! Plus much, much more!
Multiplayer specific fixes/tweaks:
- Newly placed beds, signs, chests, shelves, trains and workbenches are now owned by whoever placed them, and cannot be picked up or directly removed by other players. They also no longer despawn.
- New server command to reset the owner of a username
- Banning users now also black lists their device, so they cannot reconnect with a different username and IP
- Added new moderator category to servers that can only list, ban/unban, kick, and whitelist/unwhitelist other players.
- Admins and hosts can now pick up and use all items regardless of who the owner is. Placing any picked up item re-assigns ownership to the host/admin. Dropping any item removes all ownership.
- Fixes issue allowing people to log in as someone else on iOS 7, or when they were marked (AWAY)
- Kicked/Banned players' blockheads are now removed from the world instantly.
- Fixes issues riding donkeys in multiplayer
Lots of fun!
I use this server app to play The Blockheads with my family. It works well with us playing on both Andriod and iOS devices simultaneously. I have not had version 1.4 crash at all.
