SAN FRANCISCO – August 1, 2013 – Linden Lab®, the makers of shared creative spaces including Second Life®, PatternsTM, CreatorverseTM, VersuTM, and dioTM, today announced that BlocksworldTM for iPadTM is now available for free worldwide in the App Store.
Blocksworld is a lighthearted build-and-play system for kids and grownups alike that brings the imaginative play of toy blocks to your iPad's touch-screen, allowing you to bring your digital creations to life. Snap together colorful 3D blocks to create anything you can imagine - from crazy characters to cars, space rockets, animals, robots, planes, monsters, and much more - and then bring your creations to life and play with them! Simple drag-and-drop controls make it easy to add interactivity and animations to anything you make. Tap “Play” and get ready to smile as your creations walk and talk, jump, drive, fly, shoot lasers, fire rockets, or even explode.
Proud of what you’ve made? Share your creations with the Blocksworld community so that players around the world can enjoy what you’ve built, and move up the leaderboard as your creations become more popular. In need of some inspiration? Play through quick, fun puzzles to pick up new building techniques and unlock new materials and tools. Or, play with any of the creations that other Blocksworld players around the world have shared with the community.
Expand your creative potential with themed Sets like Rocket Power, Wacky Walkers, Wheel Action, or Laser Blazers, available for purchase in the App Store. Each set includes additional blocks, colors, characters, special actions, and more to create with, as well as new puzzles to play.
“Millions of people have grown up building things out of toy blocks at home, and now Blocksworld brings that experience to the iPad, opening up a whole new world of creativity,” said Rod Humble, CEO of Linden Lab. “Kids and grownups alike will love building unique creations, but the real magic comes when you bring your creations to life with Blocksworld’s simple tools. We can’t wait to see what everyone will build and share and look forward to continually expanding Blocksworld’s creative capabilities with new block Sets.”
