"The Sandbox is a fantastically inventive mobile game that encourages players to create entire worlds and works of art!" Cult Of Mac

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

The Sandbox lets you create little pixel worlds, it's like Minecraft style in 2D.

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.

● Millions of possibilities. Infinite landscape designs. Countless different chemical reactions. Nothing is beyond your reach!
● Embrace your inner Pixel Artist to create or recreate amazing masterpieces and compose your very own chiptunes melodies with varied music instruments!
● Bring life to your creations and watch them evolve, eat, destroy and die

● Over 150 elements to combine for different physic effects!
● 14 exciting campaigns -- a whopping 198 game levels in all!
● Add an intelligent life-form to your worlds: Humans!
● Change their behaviour using one of the 8 Magic Powders and turn them into a Miner, Builder, Hunter, Woodcutter, Zombies, Safari guys, Spacemen or even Robots!
● Try now the Ninja! This controllable guy will jump around and avoid traps!
● 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!
● Recreate the Jurassic Period with dinosaurs and volcanoes! Protect your dinosaurs from extinction or recreate the BIG BANG and make them disappear!
● Try our new Blueprints and add awesome real-life wonders to your worlds: the Eiffel Tower, Chichen Itza, the Pyramids, the Statue of Liberty -- even a Crashed UFO!
● Wreak havoc with powerful explosions with TNT or C4! Light up the sky with fireworks or the Galaxy Invaders!
● Create amazing chain reactions with several sensor types, including liquid, light and temperature!
● Craft worlds featuring unique Laser and discover their powers once combined with different gems!

● Create your universe and then share it in The Sandbox’s Online Gallery
● Search in the Online gallery to see other players' creations (more than 500.000 worlds!)
● Rate other players’ worlds and add elements too.

An entire universe in the palm of your hand!

Customer Reviews


My friend downloaded this game while I was playing Magic: The Gathering without my consent. At first I was angry, but after trying it out I can assure any potential downloaders that you will not be disappointed... Unless, of course, if you have a problem with the pixel theme. Personally, I think pixelated graphics are fantastic, and add a sense of nostalgia to the mix, but if you're one of those people who prefer graphics over gameplay, then get something else. 5/5.

Great...but better Pay to Play

I love Love LOVE!!! This game. The only thing I hate are the ads. I paid for the game, and in game purchases and in game as (ie ninja etc..) are cool too. However at the game's nonfree nature, why the ads? Will I really get no ads if I make a purchase or buy all the level @ the 10$ price? Does that include future adventures? Having spent the $10, do I get a discount on future game? Look, I want to through my money at you and be apart of the sandbox club, but please make this more transparent!!!
