The Blockheads update lets you go on a jetpack joyride across the skies

November 19, 2014

The sky’s the limit with the latest update to The Blockheads.

The new version of the popular Minecraft-like sandbox game developed by Majic Jungle Software introduces jetpacks, which can help you take flight in the game. Note, though, that making a jetpack requires lots of oil, titanium, and electricity.

Once you’ve made a jetpack, you can take your blockheads to the skies, where new floating islands and hanging vines await.

The new version of The Blockheads also features faster mining and crafting, new shaders and lighting for enhanced graphics, and the following improvements:

  • Adds platinum coins (worth 100 gold each), as well as platinum ore, ingots and blocks.
  • Adds titanium ore, ingots, blocks, armor, swords and pickaxes.
  • Adds carbon fiber blocks and armor
  • Adds glass and black glass stairs and columns
  • Adds a new electric press which is faster than a normal press, but also allows you to crush stone into gravel and gravel into sand
  • Adds the new electric sluice, which sifts through gravel to find ores
  • Adds ownership signs, which protect a 31×31 area so that only the assigned player and admins may modify it.
  • All columns and stairs are now crafted at the builder’s bench, which replaces the stonemason’s bench
  • Plants and trees grown in compost no longer die of old age
  • Compost is now created at a compost bin, and can be made out of most organic items
  • Ores are now clumped together into larger deposits
  • Back walls are now only created if there is another solid block or back wall within 10 blocks below
  • Back walls can now be removed by using the correct tool for the block type
  • Text now appears black on light painted signs or shops
  • Workbenches and portals can only be upgraded by admins or the owner of that workbench.

The Blockheads is available on the App Store as a free-to-play universal title.

The game received its previous major update back in April, thereby gaining support for trade portals and other enhancements.

Minecraft – Pocket Edition, the iOS port of The Blockheads’ obvious chief inspiration, was updated just yesterday with enhanced graphics, improved performance, bug fixes, and more.
