Minecraft rival Fairystone launches this week

Fairystone, an iOS app that looks to build on the success of sandbox games like Minecraft, is set to grace our iOS devices this week, according to a recently released trailer.

Though little concerning the app has been confirmed, we do know that Fairystone is a Minecraft-like application that puts players in control of building a big, beautiful world. TouchArcade describes it as being “not as boxy and definitely more colorful” than Minecraft, and I agree: the app’s visuals look perfect, and the kind of environments you can create in Fairystone seem far more immersive and engaging.

In the YouTube trailer’s description, developer Odenis Studio writes of Fairystone:

It’s peaceful, positive and beautiful and you can do so much with it. Construct your home, invite fairies, and create an incredible ecosystem full of life and magic. Truly, there is no limits for your imagination: you could compose music, create a castle, fly like a bird, and so much more.

It all seems quite perfect, to me. Moreso, the app takes full advangage of Apple’s most recent hardware: it runs at 60 frames per second (fps) and employs rich artificial intelligence (AI) in order to create a world that seems real. The developer also promises an impressive touch-based control system, too.

Fairystone will be available on the App Store this week, on June 25. It’ll retail for the introductory, limited-time-price of $2.99, before increasing its price tag to $5.99 soon after.
