Growtopia is a 2D creative sandbox experience designed for multiplayer that is perfect for your mobile devices (both iOS and Android). The game is also available on Windows and Mac.

growtopia-gameplay1

Growtopia is a universe of endless worlds that players can populate with their own creations. Every place in the game world runs in a persistent manner with connections to other worlds everywhere.

In Growtopia you can do anything that you can imagine with your friends (or by yourself if you are just looking to create quietly). The way you create in Growtopia is very unique and uses a method referred to as ‘splicing’ which involves planting seeds in particular combinations to make things. This growing mechanic is then combined with digging to round out your available tools. It’s easier than it might sound and you can quickly build your own houses, dungeons or thriving cities.

The feature list for Growtopia doesn’t stop there though with all the chat options you’ll need to make new friends or stay in touch with your current ones. The game also features an intuitive locking feature that lets you lock down your creations to keep them safe.

With so much to do in the game world you’ll find that Growtopia’s newbie guide is an invaluable resource and worth taking the time to read carefully when you first open up the game (it will save you a lot of time in the long run).

Growtopia is a nice change from other sandbox building games that have come around and it’s quickly grown a community to support its MMO side of gameplay. If you aren’t one for socialising with others or interested in learning a new game mechanic that takes some getting used to though. you might want to give it a miss.

Summary:

  • Grow and mine resources.
  • Unique splicing mechanic.
  • A persistent and connected game world.
  • Chat with your friends or make new ones.
  • Lock down your creations to stop editing from others.

    This is an awesome game, all other MMO games just don’t appeal to me. I also like how you can build almost anything in Growtopia. There are endless possibilities. I think, however, that without the social part of the game, this game would not be so popular. There are over 2 million players, I heard, and about 200,000 regular daily players. That should show how popular this game is! It’s also very unique… I absolutely hate having to search “fun MMOs” and always get these violent pictures of dark games. Another fun part of the game is making music. I’ve composed some great music for myself. ;)

    If you play Growtopia, check out my worlds: LAD, AIRSERVER, ROTATIONAL, WRATHE, LIGHTABOVE, and SECTIONALS. lol :D

    Best game ever!

    When I search for growtopia I get nothing similar. But actually those games are similar to growtopia:
    Cubic castles
    Terraria

    I really like this game.

    ALSO THIS GAME NEEDS SOME UPDATED VIDEOS. Those videos of gameplay of this game make game looks so bad
