This. Game. Is. Awesome.
It's kinda like Infiniminer
, except the levels are more realistic and epically hugely ridiculously gigantic, it looks better in general, there's no annoying beepy noises, it runs in a browser so no installing needed...uh...yeah.
For those who haven't tried it yet, let me give you an idea just how big and complex these levels can get. Here's a screen from one of the more popular servers:
For reference, the little tiny purple dot near the bottom (with a red arrow pointing at it) is the size of a player. Also, this shot only shows about 1/4th of the map, since the other side is mostly hidden by masses of stuff on this side, and the remaining half is underground. And this is one map, on one server out of hundreds. Is your mind boggled yet?
Some suggestions for the developer, if he comes back:
- It might help to have a do-nothing mode as well as add/delete block modes, which you could toggle with some keyboard key; it's a little too easy to delete a block by mistake and flood your base (or worse, someone else's).
- It'd be nice to have an 'elevator block' of some sort that carries players up when they stand on it, then moves back down when they get off. People usually just build vertical towers to get up onto things, which are hard to get rid of, take up space, and only work once.
- Some way of changing which face of a block to attach a new one to, so you could stick something on the opposite face without seeing it, would help a lot with bridge-building, which right now involves working very slowly and falling off hundreds of times. Maybe an 'X-ray' mode where you see through the target block to its unseen faces?
