Love the game

So when I heard of the game, it was at T-Mobile. We were playing on the iPhone X. And then we saw the game, we were like.... “meh, what is this game” then we played a little. We were AMAZED!! So then during the summer I remembered the playground ar game. Then I asked to get it.... and I got it! But....

I have suggestions!!!

1. I wish there were liquids... I would love to have liquids. How when you take out a block that’s holding the liquid.... it would all spill!

2. I kind of don’t like that you have to build everything yourself!😫 I wish that there were pre-built castles, race tracks, houses, etc. That would be a lot better!

3. Scaling would be great! Because then if you were building stuff it would be a lot easier to place the block. Also being in a life size archer fight would be awesome!!!

4.Also can you add more things to control instead of cars and airplanes. It would’ve cool if we can control an robot and swordsman and monsters!

Lastly, the most important one! You all might laugh at me, but how do you work multiplayer? I can’t seem to find how! Please reply to this comment and see if these ideas are great, and can you tell me how to play multiplayer! Thanks!!!!!

Does not work well with iPhone 7

The surface scanning area is not working well at all. I've been trying to scan the floor, dining table, coffee table, none are detected. Placing a cube next to another cube is not as easy as it seems, as any slight movement of the hand moves the cube into the cube below our the one next to it which makes the cubes fall. So unless you have a surgeon hands it will take a lot more practice than a child have. My 5 yo lost interest in less than 3 mins trying to figure out how to work this game. When I tried helping I came across similar challanges.

Instructions can be also more friendly and guide kids and other users how to be successful and use the features that on the surface seem to be fun and useful. I'm giving 4 stars because the potential is great and I want to see this app succeeding.

Thank you for your feedback.
I'm working hard on improving the user experience.

Looked cool

And it was cool but it was also less than I was expecting. If you have the patience and ability to place 10’s of blocks into a neat castle then that’s good for you. The problem is I don’t always want to spend the time doing that. If there was a way to share your creations and have the most popular ones show up daily that would be great (you know so I can steal other people’s designs to play on for 5 minutes and move on).
The other problem with this app is that there seems the be little developer support. As of this update it appears that this app has only been updated once. I feel that the $2 I payed for this game can only be justified by having more content delivered to me instead of an entertaining but also somehow time consuming and boring app.

Developer Response ,

Hi! Thank you for your feedback.
Right now I'm working hard on the next update which if everything goes as planned will be released this month. It will feature new blocks and ways to interact with your creations.
I'm also working on saving and sharing your creations, but it's not that simple and it will take some more time to arrive. I hope you understand.

I take my time to read every single comment and take constructive feedback so I can improve the app.

Again thank you for your feedback and your patience.
