App description

This is a creative game in a randomly generated three-dimensional environment. The player places and removes blocks to build structures. There are no explicit objectives in this game as it is open ended and allows players to create whatever they wish to within the world.  The game requires limited skills but helps to encourage creativity.

Reviewers comments

World of Cubes is a three-dimensional creative game where players move about in a randomly generated three-dimensional world, placing and removing blocks to create structures of their own design. Younger users should avoid the online multiplayer component which includes a chat room. This is moderated, however, players can construct potentially inappropriate/offensive creations or destroy the creations of other players. As a result, younger users may find this disturbing or upsetting. This game features full-screen advertisements that require manual player action to close them. However, all of the advertisements fall within the 6+ Rating. Players typically construct houses, buildings and vehicles. The blocks required to construct these can be accessed and equipped from a building menu.

In App purchasing

Online information

About games and gambling

Most games contain elements of risk, chance and knowledge, that is why they are fun to play. There is growing concern about the impacts of simulated gambling games on the health and wellbeing of children. That's why we are identifying games that contain gambling elements on our site.

The State Government of South Australia's web site http://nogame.com.au/ contains information about these concerns.
