Block World is a creative game available through the Xbox Marketplace and the Windows Store. Both of the game versions have a free demo available.
Block World will bring out your creativity as you shape the randomly generated game worlds around you in either a single player or multiplayer environment. When generating a new world in BlockWorld you’ll get to name your world, choose a seed, whether or not you want trees and the world type (flat, floating and more).
With these options it’s easy to enter a world that meets your creative needs and give you plenty of space for all the big builds that you want to create. It also gives you plenty of room to fight your friends with swords, bombs, arrows and even guns. Turning on this PvP is optional in the game settings so you won’t accidently be damaging your friends while building. On the same setting menu you can activate flying and can also control the time of day, allowing you to see your creations under a different light.
The features that set Block World apart from other games in this space are the impressive biome and block variety available to players. These block types include some very unique options from the dice that you can roll, the beach ball that you can hit around with friends and the bomb block for destructive fun.
You’ll even find nearly two dozen dyes that allow you to change the colour of blocks around you. While not all blocks can be coloured (such as grass) this dye offers much more flexibility than other creative games.
The final feature that will pull you into the Block World universe is the camera which will take photos of scenario in your game world. If you like the picture you can even take this photograph to your house and use it as a decoration.
