5.0 out of 5 stars fantastic, June 5, 2012

This review is from: Block Story Premium (App)
Block story is a labor of love from talented developers and it needs to be seen as such. It is not trying to be a port of minecraft but rather a rpg and adventure game using some elements that minecraft pioneered. Technically block story is more impressive than minecraft pocket edition, it features infinite worlds and specular lighting and around 90 dynamic mobs. Additionally it will be updated much more frequently. It is unfair to the developers to give a baseless rating purely on the fact that the app is not what you expect. It needs to be rated upon its own merits and those are worthy of five stars. My thanks to the russian devs, your hard work really shows and it makes me excited to see the future of block story

Thank you for your kind words. Indeed this game aims to be an RPG, and it is great to see some of the features we have don't go overlooked.

Just a small correction, Minecraft did not pioneer blocky worlds, it was Infiniminer.
Also, the team is half South American half Russian.

The future is very bright, we have MANY things we want to add, and updates will be as frequent as Amazon allows

There were other games before Infiniminer that allowed you to dig holes and such, but yeah, Infiniminer pioneered the mining feel. I personally like the Sauerbraten FPS for its block-based level editor. It allows for some very impressive customization. Unfortunately, the gameplay isn't fun in Sauerbraten. XD
