Professional Review


The Sandbox is a cute 2D pixel art simulator of God in which you have resources and power to change the world up to your needs. Take care of Earth and create the world of your dreams. The Sandbox downloading is available for Mac Os, iOS, Android and Blackberry on corresponding game stores.

Graphics 5/5

It’s important to treat this franchise wisely, because it’s a niche indie project with pixel art visuals. They look absolutely gorgeous and provide a feeling of playing a great old game, but with modern crafting features. In fact, the pixel art of The Sandbox was honored with multiple prizes for creativity and authenticity. It’s also important that developers managed to stick to basic laws of physics to develop an intuitive gameplay.

Gameplay 5/5

This game is about endless crafting of the new better world using the powers of nature and man-made devices, such as cannons and rocket launchers. They can help you to change some terrains the fast way, but you always have to be careful to avoid accidental killing of people and creatures.

It’s weird, but this game provides not a 1 single player campaign, but as many as 21 campaigns with 310 levels in total! It’s scary to think about how many hours will it take to complete them all. The 35% walkthrough for The Sandbox review took about 14 evenings! You can manipulate more than 200 physical elements with specific properties. The main objective is to use your imagination to the full to create memorable locations. You can even create your own chiptune music to attach it to your maps.

Apart from nature’s physical objects, you are free to use man-made guns, lasers, and explosives to change terrains beyond recognition. There are also multiple electrical objects for building cozy dwellings for people.

Controls 5/5

The Sandbox was originally created for mobile devices and only after the commercial success it came to Mac OS. Tap controls are very easy to be adjusted for Mac’s touchpad or mouse controls. All interactive elements always appear on the screen in time, so you don’t have to search for any special hidden menus.

Replay Value 5/5

As was mentioned above, The Sandbox includes as many as 310 levels and a free editor. It means that you can spend days and weeks creating and sharing new worlds. It’s just a matter of taste and love to the genre. The only possible limit is your imagination, so there are absolutely no limits!

The Bottom Line

The Sandbox is a beautiful pixel art crafting game in which you are free to express yourself with powers of nature and various interactive objects. This game is worth the attention of all indie lovers, crafting enthusiasts and those gamers who look for a good time killer.

 

Conclusion

Download The Sandbox to get a great experience of crafting pixelated terrains with multiple items, weapons, explosives and the powers of nature.
