This game is amazing!!! I really recommend it, and it is pretty much that you can build anything you like, and you can either explore around or just fly in the air and build things. I usually like going on Survival Mode, but that is just me. There are diffrent stages to Survival like, Peacefull Mode, Easy Mode Normal Mode, and Hard Mode, and the harder it get's, the more challenges that come. It is a pretty fun game, and i really hope that you will enjoy it as much as i do!

It's a great app and all, like basically every other review said, but I encountered a problem. After building something in my world, the application closed down. I thought nothing of it, until this morning where it would not open. I tried freeing up space, uninstalling then reinstalling, but nothing would work. (EDIT) I recently found out that It would not open on SCHOOL WIFI. I just thought I needed to clear that up.

The game itself is good but the problem is that when I load it up, sometimes it starts flashing black on the screen and I uninstalled it to see if that would fix it but it didn't. Please fix it so it doesn't flash anymore. (Btw the flashing is caused by something that pops up on screen that isn't the game, like the task bar on the bottom of my chromebook when my mouse goes down and pulls it up) Edit: I think they fixed it now so I can finally enjoy this game like I should've been before. 5 Stars
