Like other popular games ported to iOS, Minecraft: Pocket Edition has spawned an abundance of "me too" clones attempting to cash in on the game's prolific momentum. Block Fortress certainly looks like just another carbon copy to throw on the pile, but it's a very different experience once you dig beneath the surface. Instead of grand exploration and adventure, this frenetic tower defense game mixes first-person shooter combat, base building, and an addicting RPG progression and unlocking system to create something that feels fresh and fun.
The clear leader in iOS 3D software, Autodesk delivers the most user-friendly, powerful 3D app anyone has attempted to create for the iPad in its newest offering, 123D Creature. The app was designed primarily as a tool for creating models with bilateral symmetry and limbs, as the program is primarily geared towards making the process of whipping up articulated 3D characters – not easy for anyone except the most seasoned 3D artists. But it's a process you'll pick up by actually doing it, which sets app this apart from many 3D tools.
The freedom of being let loose to explore, build, and carve out your own little niche in an open sandbox world made games like Minecraft and Terraria tremendously addictive. Deepworld attempts to capture that same magic by injecting the formula with a post-apocalyptic steampunk vibe, and while there's plenty to do both above and below the surface of this fantasy realm, this online crafting adventure doesn't quite click in the same way as the games it emulates.
