(User scores are recalculated daily)
Adventure With Companions is a simple iOS game inspired by Minecraft that focuses on multiplayer gameplay. For a small price tag it makes it very easy to connect with friends and strangers to build in a sandbox environment.
Upon first launching the app you’ll be required to create an account by selecting a username, password and entering your email. After you’ve created your account you’ll be thrown right into a block based game world very similar to that of Minecraft. Adventure With Companions takes place on a single persistent world that connects all players together so there is always someone new to meet and build with. Thankfully the game does include a report button in the menu if you find someone is repeatedly pesky.
The UI in the game is fairly impressive and even on the small screen of an iPhone never feels cluttered. You’ll find your available block types and current co-ordinates in the world at the bottom while the chat sits at the top of the screen and a single button for jumping. The controls are equally well designed and always feel very responsive with no lag of any sorts hindering play. I was particularly impressed with the chat which was always quick to respond and makes communication very easy.
Block types in Adventure With Companions are fairly limited but does offer all the blocks you’ll need for most building projects. With five quick slots available at the bottom of your screen you’ve got enough space to carry the block types you need without needing to constantly fiddle with your inventory.
Blocks include dirt, sand, leaves, grass, stone, cobblestone, planks, tree trunks, torches and glass. You’ll also have access to a shovel which can remove all blocks in the game world with a single touch.
If you are a fan of the sandbox mode of Minecraft and want something light, portable and multiplayer focused Adventure With Companions will suit you perfectly.
