The Sandbox - is a fun arcade puzzle game for Android, in which we create from scratch the ground, using the basic elements and gradually creating new ones. In our hands the whole world, and when we decide what to do with it, destroy or restore order.
The game is made entirely in the pixel style, we come in the form of a bearded old man who calls himself God. Despite the fact that all the graphics are composed of pixels, the game looks very colorful and unusual.
GameplayThe Sandbox game is more reminiscent of editing here, we also have a pencil, eraser and a set of different elements. The game begins with these primitive elements, such as land and water, then we create the sand, stone, and at some point, turn to organic life.
If you fill the earth, and water it with water and wait a bit, then it naturally grow flowers and plants. Also we can scatter the seeds that will be beautiful trees.
Another important parameter of the game - is the weather, and we can fully manage it, the time of day, temperature and position of the sun. For example, if you make too hot climate, the trees will burn, and only the white sand.
The plot of the game is divided into levels, where we have to learn to derive new elements. As soon as we have finished, the new item will appear in our database, so only we can not use it until the ransom. To purchase items using the energy that we are given for completed quests. To buy all the items it is not enough. And here it is necessary to find a compromise, as some items can be easily produced by mixing the other, and they can not buy.
