Crafting and Building

  • Chloe Garcia

I love crafting games for one reason; they allow me to unleash my creativity. I am always looking for a new crafting app to test my skills and enjoy myself. A few months ago, I came across Crafting and Building: Exploration Craft. I was really excited because I had not tried it out and I had heard a lot of hype about it. I could not wait to start telling my story with this Google Android app. Here’s my Crafting and Building experience and my honest opinion about the application.

Create Amazing Masterpieces

Crafting and Building is an Android app that gives you the opportunity to create, mine, landscape and build anything you wish. I spend hours collecting materials, chipping blocks and building my masterpiece every time I start playing this game, and I never get bored. One thing I love about this game is the fact that it makes you get creative. Since there are no in-app purchases, you have to create everything on your own. There are no shortcuts! I love this because it makes me have a sense of ownership for everything I manage to build in the game. It also makes it more interesting because it allows me to think outside the box.
I also love the fact that this game has a unique aesthetic. I know a lot of people believe this game has dated graphics, but which crafting game doesn’t? I think this game’s graphics suit it perfectly considering its genre. To make things even better, it is set in a 3D world which gives the overall graphics a great enhancement.

Steep Learning Curve

Although this game has very simple and easy to use controls, I do not like that there is no guide on how to go about building different things. If you have never played a crafting game before, you will have a very hard time trying to figure out how to build different things. I experienced a number of challenges when I started playing the Google Play app for this game despite the fact that I have a lot of experience with crafting games. I had to go to web forums and chat rooms just to understand how different things work. This is a great disappointment because there is no satisfaction in repeating everything you’ve been told to do. To make matters worse, the latest version is even more complicated. Without a guide and very complex controls, there is no way you will have fun in the initial stages. You have to learn everything from scratch before you can begin playing the game and having fun. If you are not patient, this might not be the best crafting game for you. This is something that the developers really need to look into.

Become the Master of Your Own Fate

Despite the fact that this game has a steep learning curve, it is worth it. Once you get the hang of it, you get to have loads of fun. Every time I am trying to create tools, food, and other items to survive on the Island, it makes me feel like I am deciding my fate. I also like the fact that there are no limits to what you can create. The choices are endless, and you get to choose which life you will live and how you will survive until the end.  You can create projects for yourself and work on them until you are done. It is really not as easy as it sounds and that is what I love about it. I can always rely on the game to challenge my creativeness.

The updated version of this game might have a lot of issues with control and gameplay, but I still believe this game is one of the leading Crafting games on the market. It gives you numerous features and the graphics are decent compared to what you will get from other similar games. Therefore, despite these shortcomings, I would recommend this game to anyone who loves challenging and fun crafting games. You will be glad you got this app. You can get a game for free on Google Play Store.
