I love it but sometimes it gets a little boring
Just some thoughts 4/5
Great game. Enjoy the Concept of it. But I agree with some of the reviews on how there’s no challenge. Another thing. I personally would enjoy cliff edges that covered only one block High therefore there wouldn’t be just squares in a world I’m trying to make as realistic as possible. Maybe even make it to where one block high could be like a hill or something to make it less blocky. If that makes any sense. And maybe even some stares that are too blocks high. But not all concrete? That would be great. Nevertheless it’s still a great game. Worth playing
Not enough to do 4/5
There is enough to build but it gets a little stale without any sort of objective. Maybe add missions of some sort?
Fun for a day but needs a little more 4/5
By An iPod 5 owner
This game is so much fun. However, the only thing which stool out to me the first day I played it was the lack of interaction with the people. I think it would be nice if we were able to control the people a little more, such as setting them up in social classes or being to select their home (whether it be a house, castle or tent). Also, if people could have the option build up relation with select animals the game would seem more realistic. I really like where it is right now though!
Great game!!! But I have suggestions 5/5
By is me da guy
I love this game and I love creating my own worlds, I just wish that they had more maps Than the default map.
P.S. I’ve seen games that have stolen your items and putting them in their own game. I’m not sure if you’re ok with that so I’m just telling you. Thanks for the hard work!
Love this game, but... 5/5
I love this game. The style, animation, and building tools and materials are all very creative and well done. My only complaint is that recently my game has been crashing after an hour or so of work and the game ends up not saving my work. I have restarted and started the app 3 times and rebuilt what wasn’t saved 3 times to still have the game crash on me. I haven’t played the game in a couple of weeks because I don’t want to work so hard to build something I’m proud of with the fear that it will be deleted if the game crashes again. I hope I’m the only one who has experienced this, and I hope there is a fix for this soon so I can continue building!
Great beginning! 4/5
This game is a lot of fun... for a day. Unfortunately, it isn’t very interactive. Each character is hardly different from the last (and if they do have other qualities like harvest rates, we wouldn’t know because the game doesn’t tell you). The only difference is goblins fight humans.
The wizard should have magic he fights with, elves should have something special they can do, and people should be able to be assigned to houses or work.
I do hope they are heading in this direction and the care that they’ve taken so far gives me high hopes!
By Master Reviewzzzzz 😀😀😀
Very cool, building your own villages and turning them into castles it’s very cool,you can add stairs in future updates but idc do what you want with the game
By Vault dweller of 999
It came across my mind, hey we have old time warriors, but what if we had dinosaurs, aquatic, air, and land, could build enclosures for them, and you can make them fight, some make packs others fight with their own species for territory, it would be pretty cool, I know it would be lots of work, but I would enjoy it, maybe others will too, also love the game, an AR mode would be so cool, anyway, probably should stop typing right now... no, right now.. okay bye!
Zombies and military 3/5
This is a good game but you should add a modern military and evil attacking zombies that attack humans and goblins
It’s cute but... 3/5
It was really fun to play around with at first but got boring REALLY quick. I was really hoping to enjoy it because I’m usually into these creative type games but it felt like it was missing a lot. My biggest turn off was that the characters did next to nothing and that so many of the objects required food and wood, which was a pain to collect might I add. Another issue is that the houses are all mainly the same with just a color difference so making a village or anything close to that wouldn’t work. I liked that there was a modern choice for objects, but there were no “modern type” characters which was another problem for me. The thing that upset me the most was that there were no roads, which felt to me like that was a missed opportunity. There were different colored grass but nothing that was “gravel” or “road” type. I’m probably being a bit harsh on the game so I will say that there are quite a few nice things about it. First of all the graphics are really nice and it has a cute atmosphere to it, another thing would be that the music is really catchy and I really enjoyed it (I suggest making it longer instead of repeating it though) and the variety of props and overall different things was fun to play with. Again the game was cute and really fun but I think if you’re looking for something with characters to play with I suggest turning away, but if you’re in it for the building this is a great app for you. As for me I’ll wait until there’s more added because it does seem a bit unfinished to me.
Overall great game but can you make it so the goblins aren’t so op? Right now none of any kind of knights are able to take on a goblin unless they double team it which is hard to do because other knights will just walk past their friend in need. Can you make it so Some knights can defeat goblins and so that goblins and knights will actually go fight each other on their own? Other than that the game is pretty great so far keep up the good work!
Good job 5/5
This game is good and the developers are probably the best developers ever very great talent and this game is cool I play it my son plays it and my friends play it GG I LOVE YOU GUYS
Awesome really like the game 5/5
Really cool game just missing a few things that surprised me
2. Ships/ large vessels ,like the shipwreck kind just not wrecked even if they
are just set pieces ( would look good in my port )
3. And just a personal request ( Husky -dog breed)
4. Also unless I’m missing something there needs to be cliff edges or maybe
shoreline edges for the thinnest sized land tiles ( bothers me )
Thanks for an amazing ,relaxing game ,thanks for your time and keep up the good work!
Great GAME!!! 5/5
I love this game! But like many others I believe that their should be different game modes. I also would like the ability to change the look of the people, not super detailed stuff just things hair color and stuff like that. That would really go along with some other people’s ideas of being able to play as the characters. One more thing, I have problems adjusting the view, I sometimes get stuck with an overhead view and can’t figure out how to move it. But overall this is an amazing game and is really fun to play! Keep up the good work!😁
Its good 5/5
By ANicePerson 😀
I really like it my on suggestion is to add cats
Totally get this game! 5/5
I think that this game is the best that I have ever gotten. I think that it is a beautiful game with a lot of possibilities.
Another request for building options 5/5
What type of updates can we be expected to see in the future? Still would like to have moving cars like the boats something to drive on roads. Ability to make actual cities with pre programmed skyscrapers with out having to stack up the modern duplexes. Still would love to see more goblin options for building. Every other part has plenty to build off of building accessories etc. but the goblins are lacking in the ability to build, plus can we see community submitted events? Something to showcase player made buildings with some sort of incentive would be pretty cool
Beautiful, but a little boring 3/5
Pocket Build is a truly beautiful game. But you quickly realize it’s not the “you can build literally anything” game you hoped for. Despite having many objects, you are only able to build stuff from humans, elves, or goblins. The goblins, elves, humans, and other animals are also quite boring to watch. They either walk around mindlessly without interacting with anything, or hack at trees and gold the whole time. There are also not enough buildings to use. Still, a quaint lovely game.
The game is great! Got me addicted right away! Only down fall is that you can’t zoom out any further.
Needs fish 5/5
I think that the game would be way cooler if you could make ponds with fish in them and have characters that would be able to fish the pond for food
Why no doors? 3/5
This game is pretty cool but there are a lot of objects that are useless and why are the elves houses missing doors..? The missing doors annoys the hell out of me. And how do elves get up to the door on the second floor?
Love, could add a... 4/5
This app is great. There are some things that I wish it would have such as maybe cars, bigger castles,a dragon , fairies, more, plants, and city like buildings.
Great Game, but needs a bit work. 4/5
The game has a lot of potential.
As of now, you can build some basic castles, villages, kingdoms, etc. There is an Egyptian building style too.
There are animals, which if the Very Active developer did some work on them, would be absolutely amazing.
Design your own entire world with plants and land templates, even add people and another creature, the Goblins, to play.
But, the game has very little purpose.
You gain resources too slow and too fast at times. There is no Victory/Defeat system, and it starts to get boring after you build your amazing kingdom. Everything is built instantly, and most things cost nothing, or close to it.
The gathering/fighting system to the game is also strange. A zombie should not fight better than a fully trained Wizard or Knight.
The building system is really annoying and utterly simple. It needs more complexion for someone like me. It is also really slow, and easy to mess up.
Overall, the game is great. It just needs more development and features and it will be #1 in the US
The perfect village builder 5/5
For those of you who want a relaxing building game - rejoice! Your fix is here! No pay to play, minimal resource management and relaxing game play! Build what you want when you want! Great graphics and it’s on iPhone and iPad! It has a dizzying amount of props to decorate and personalize your village, castle, or modern city!
Play for five minutes or an hour. No pressure, just fun! Hats off to the developers! Joe creativity is at our fingertips!
I love it, but... 4/5
I really enjoy the app and all of it’s functions, but I wish there was an option to allow you to delete everything all at once. Having to tap on each item individually and press delete can get quite tedious when editing large structures. It would be great to see an editing tool that's primary use is for deleting objects.
Used to be Amazing 3/5
I love this game!!! I normally hate playing video games but this one takes the cake. I get nervous and anxious sometimes and this game is actually quite calming to play which is nice in such a hectic world. You have to be careful though because I think when you build a city to big or are making to many resources it crashes all the time so now I have to close it every minute maybe I should try to build a new city but I’m really disappointed I was going to tip though glad I waited .
By iPod touch user guy
Very great concept, hoping to see quest/missions implemented into this game, as well as new props, and different races. Monsters such as skeletons and demons would be cool. A level system for individual characters is suggested as well ! Overall I’ve been hooked !
Lets get a update? 4/5
Good game. Needs more.
It would be nice if you can add a few more things because after a while it gets boring.But over all i LOVE IT
Missing a key animal and supporting buildings 5/5
I am really enjoying building my little kingdom. I have one main frustration though....no horses! I have knights and a jousting ring, but no horses or stables. I have wagons, but no horses. Would love to add stables, riding rings, and equestrian areas to my town.
I also think more variety with buildings would be great. I want to add a “merchant row” but have limited building variety to do that with. Inns and little shops would be fun to expand with.
Do not 💔 1/5
By Stran and wise
Do not play this violent game you can kill living things and it will make you 😭!!!!!!
Great and relaxing 5/5
By Amelia and/or Chris
I really love the peaceful premise of the game— it really allows for creativity and a calming experience. The best part is the amount of freedom you have to create whatever you want. I only wish that there were more options for houses, plants, props, etc. For an app, the game seems a bit pricey, but I’ve never seen such visually stunning (yet cute) layout. Overall, it is a gorgeous and well thought-out game. It is easy to interact with and intuitive.
I’ve been waiting for a game to allow the person to build whatever they want and do whatever they want best game I have ever played
I’ve been wanting this 5/5
I love this game. I have been wanting a free-to-build game like this for SOOO long, and what you have is exactly what I’m looking for! The art style is wonderful too.
I love the building system in this game but have one small little request. If you could add a 1/4 size option for the terrain just to allow more detailed landscapes that would be awesome. This is a great game and I will look forward to upcoming updates.
Charming relaxing game but still could develop more... 5/5
This game is great for people who spent too much time building in Minecraft rather than surviving. It’s very lax and the graphics are simple and pleasing. I can’t wait to see what more they do with it, I think certain additions would really add a lot to the gameplay:
- I don't know if I'm just missing something but there's only female elves? No males, Knights, archers, kings etc.
- smaller wild herbivores. Right now it's mostly predators and then deer.
- I know this would be a lot of work to create but, conditional auto land tool. There's a lot of time spent on laying down regular grass blocks and making sure the cliff pieces fit.
- one thing I'd love to see is expansion on interaction between settlements. One way could be when creating a person you can assign them to a group (corresponding with flags that already exist in game). Perhaps you may even set behavioral to the group such as aggressive, defensive, peaceful. Individuals from an aggressive colony could try and conquer other villages. Those defensive will only fight when threatened. Peaceful want to cause no trouble and will surrender to conquering groups. There's a lot of in game decorations and such alluding to warfare, perhaps what tools they have could change their chances to conquer other people. (And if they do manage to take over a group they gain their warfare instruments thus making them stronger.) this would also be nice with goblins vs humans thing because right now they barely venture out and even though they're fairly close they don't squabble.
- the standard dirt cliffsides don't match the colors of the 'dirt' tiles.
- in general I'd love to see the people get more abilities, occupations and interactions.
That's all I have for now :)
It fun till you lose your world 1/5
By Veg yvggyvgubhubuhbubhuhbu
Yeah I spend a week on this world and then it crashed and i had from 100k wood and food and lots of land to 20k food and wood with zero lands
Awesome fun lil world to build!!! 5/5
Well worth the $2... my world is run by dogs. Goblin workers produce $50,000 per hour in gold. The humans make the food and provide wood. The animals, and dogs who rule, relax in paradise, while their humans work all day... wait that’s sounds like the real world!! (5 STARS!!!!!)
Minor complaint. 5/5
Pretty fun. Wish there was a way to mute the music. I would like to listen to my podcast while
I play but I can’t 🙃
It’s boring. I mean it is a really creative game, but after a while you are really just sitting there watching the characters slowly move about. I would only recommend this to someone with a lot of patience.
99 cents doesn’t do it justice... 5/5
AWESOME GAME!!!! In my opinion it is worth more than 99 cents! I only have suggestions for this game! (No complaints). You may already be working on it but please add horses and cats! I would also suggest different colorations for some animals (i.e. foxes, deer, and wolves) and a cool new feature! Cool new feature: if you add them make horses able to pull carts! Like when you tap on the cart a little button with the text “Pair” on it will show up. When you tap pair it will show you your world and tell you to “tap to select an animal to pull this cart”. The animals that can pull a cart are cows and horses. Once you do that, it will ask you to select a human to drive the cart. After you select the driver, you will select a destination for the cart. Then you can either put more humans in the cart or put in supplies (i.e. a basket of apples, lumber, barrels, et cetera). After that you are done! The animal you selected will be pulling the cart and the supplies (or human passengers) will be in the cart! Same thing for other vehicles. You will select a human and then if the vehicle is a weapon (i.e. ballista, trebuchet, et cetera) you can choose to attack and/or you can choose your destination. Keep up the great work! Im kinda sad tho cause I can’t give a bazillion stars💧💧💧
So worth the investment! 5/5
By but why would you care
I debated spending the $2 on this game because I am wary of buying apps I may not like, but after reading the reviews I decided to give it a try and I regret nothing. Playing this game is very relaxing, and scrolling through all the items to choose from inspires you to build something new just when you thought you’d run out of ideas. I really hope they keep adding new stuff like more house models, horses, and more models of townspeople for a more diverse experience.
Beautifully Masterfully created game 4/5
I have simply enjoyed this game, I think it is definitely worth the 2$, the only problem so far i has seen it that there is no continuous play after you log out, or switch to a different world created. I think that should be added, and as a second and tiny afterthought, possible small descriptions, or labels on items yet still self explanatory if taken the moment to think it through on ones own. Seriously though, this game is extremely beautifully built, very interactive, and a whole lot of thought is already in this game.
This was surprising 5/5
I hate free build games with no sort of goal but this game has a little goal like food wood and gold so it was fun to me there are things that could be added like walls that go 2 different directions instead of just straight and other ways to spend the gold food and wood because when you leave the game and don’t play for a day you get way more resources than you will ever need
Please make new worlds 3/5
By Good game11233
This game is a great game but it’s lacks a variety of worlds, I feel it would be cool if there was a random world option. Also there it would be great if it had less lag when you have more then 400 people/animals/goblins. But overall this game is very good
Wont save 2 worlds 4/5
I bought this game for my new ipad and I enjoy it, but I cant save 2 worlds and if I can I don’t know how.
I mean concept is cool except your options are very very limited and it’s a very pointless app
Great and worth is but a few suggestions 4/5
This game is great it’s very beautiful to look at and it’s definitely a game you can spend hours in just trying to build one little area however I do have a few suggestions.
1. Names for each individual item
-it’s not a big deal but I feel like it will be easier for finding new props and building as sometimes it’s hard to tell what certain buildings are
2. Label the buildings by size
-For example in the goblin section most of the walls and buildings are smaller and then there are a few that are extremely large but they are under the same category I feel like if they were organized more it would be easier
Good, needs a few things fixed 4/5
Love the game, there are a few bugs though. One of which is super annoying. There is a bridge that is short, made of light wood, looks great. I used it a bunch in a;pot of my build but I noticed all my towns people are walking on water now. Through my own testing I found that towns people will glitch through that specific bridge, none of the other ones.
Also through testing I’ve done myself I found that each character does things at the same rate for the same amount, an example is a woman, man, Workman, and knight all chop wood at the same rate and get you the same amount. Just makes me wonder why I would buy a workman when I can just get a peasant for cheaper. Making each character do something unique would be a cool update!
One more thing that I think is important is allowing us to turn off the music and sound, just a small thing that makes a huge difference.
Thanks for reading!
