The description of Growtopia

The popularity of creative games such as Minecraft on mobile devices has increased dramatically in recent years. Growtopia tries to make its mark in this genre with a sandbox experience in which you can craft, grow and expand your own world, and interact with other players in this unique sandbox.

Essence of Growtopia - 4/5

Though hard to put in a box, Growtopia can be described as a multiplayer sandbox experience with platforming and crafting elements. In the world of Growtopia, you can use anything around you to sculpt or build. You interact with the environment around you, full of other real-world players. You can craft your own world or join those of others. A lot of the action involves destroying things around you through punching, which lends some simplicity to the crafting mechanic of the game but also makes you vulnerable to attacks by other players. Since you have to punch before you craft, expect a lot of destruction and disappointment in Growtopia.

You can plant or splice seeds, which in turn gives rise to other resources such as bricks and doors.

Graphics and Audio - 3.5/5

The UI and the general visual design of this game looks a little cluttered, and the interface might be a bit confusing, especially for a novice playing for the first time. It’s a bland 2D world with color variation to distinguish the different elements of the environment. The graphics look heavily pixelated, while the character design looks rudimentary, maybe done intentionally for a humorous effect. The sounds are pretty upbeat.

Controls - 4/5

Playing Growtopia is simply a matter of tapping items from your inventory and tapping on an area on-screen to place them. You can swipe up and down on the inventory list to view all your items. There are action buttons on-screen such as the punching button, which you can also activate by selecting the fist on-screen. While it takes a few games to acclimatize to the controls fully, it gets easier after a while.

Immersion - 4/5

The first few tries of playing Growtopia might turn out to be a bit frustrating, as the tutorial and objectives are not entirely clear. It’s fun to interact with other players around the world in real time, and you can either work together or destroy each other’s worlds, which is exciting either way. The interactive text and lively soundtrack make the experience pleasant, but it’s not fun to get lost in the same gameplay mechanics for hours.

Pros

  • Offers a unique concept of a creative world where you can collaborate or compete against other players;
  • Simple gameplay mechanics.

Cons

  • Getting special seeds without purchases for progress is difficult;
  • Confusing tutorial.
4

Good

Growtopia tries to carve its own niche in the creative genre by letting you craft your own world where anything is possible and interact with other players while doing that. It is a decent game once you’ve gotten used to the mechanics and have figured out how to lock your craft to prevent other players from destroying it. There is a likelihood that you’ll spend real money on purchasing rare seeds that unlock special items, but you can enjoy the game without that.
