Editors’ Notes

An amazing place to build and create, The Sandbox Evolution lets us be reality-shaping gods. Tons of elements and a deep tutorial give you everything you need to craft stunning worlds or make your own platformer, chiptunes, or pixel-art paintings. Even if you don’t feel like building, you’ll have hours of fun exploring other players’ creations and earning mana used to expand your toolset.

Wonderful game

(ORIGINAL POST:) Do not let the three stars misguide you - this is a wonderful game. I love this game so much that I’ve bought the premium and all elements pack. However, when I bought Premium, I saw a small problem that could easily be fixed. When uploading a level as a premium member, the level is automatically set to premium only. As a level creator, this reduces my potential audience and feedback from other players since only a fraction of the community can play my levels and is premium. I searched up a solution to this, but to my dissatisfaction, there was no way to switch it. I would give this game a definite five stars if a mechanic were added where premium members can make their levels premium or not premium. If the review team is reading this, I’d love it if you added this feature in. Otherwise, this is a wonderful game.

EDIT 1: The game is also somewhat bugged since the new update - redirectors in dungeons are automatically set down when loaded in a saved world, and many elements that are premium are still locked for me. What I said above is still the same.

EDIT 2: Thank you for the fast response to my issue. I’ve changed my three to five in respect to your fast informative. This game is truly a masterpiece, keep it up!
