Minecraft did it first, so why is Creativerse doing it better?
Creativerse is a polygon based builder just like Minecraft. As a player, you can build anything you want, fight off baddies, grow crops, and explore nearly bottomless caves, just like you can in Minecraft. But Creativerse has so much more going for it. Lets take a look at some of the main reasons why.
Creativerse is beautiful to look at. Yes, Minecraft has a certain pixellated charm to it, but once you get over that it really is just ugly. You can modify Minecraft with new texture packs, and that helps a lot. But the problem is that every time a new patch comes out, I have to go download and reinstall my texture packs. That is very annoying. I’d rather have the pretty graphics built right in.
Just in terms of the sheer number and types of blocks you can find or create, Creativerse beats Minecraft hands down. Do you like stone buildings, but don’t want the same old grey stone? No problem — there are at least 5 different types of base stone to build with, not to mention the different types that can be made with the various crafting stations and bought in the online game store. That’s true for almost all block types in the game.
But wait, there’s more. With the ability to rotate blocks, you can create an almost infinite number of combinations, giving your creations a truly unique flair.
Hands down one of the best features is teleporters. You can plop one by your front door and one at the bottom of that enormously deep cavern that you’ve been exploring for the last three hours. Now you don’t have to start over at the top and work your way down to where you left off, you just pop through the teleporter. It makes mining a cinch!
The creatures in Creativerse are just adorable. Seriously, how can you not love this little Leafie? Most of them are non-aggressive until nighttime, when they take on an eerie blue glow and try to kill you a lot. Their evil cousins seem to spawn in dark places like caves as well, so you have to watch your back while digging for all those awesome blocks. Each biome also has its own type of creatures, some a little meaner than others. Watch out for the Trogs, yikes!
My absolute favorite thing about Creativerse is that the developers are still very active. They are still creating new biomes and block types all the time. This is to be expected, since the game is still in Early Access on Steam, but I get a sense that these developers will never just drop the game and walk away. Maybe I’m wrong, but I do know another game whose developer did walk away…and then sold out to Microsoft. I’m just saying.
If you are a fan of building games, this one is definitely worth trying. Check out Creativerse on the official website and get ready for some awesome building action.
