The Blockheads Content Update Goes Live

The first content update for the smash-hit sandbox game The Blockheads has just gone live on the App Store. As we reported at the end of January, this first content update introduces a new construction block to the game, along with compost to help grow trees and plants faster.

Here's a complete breakdown of what's new in Version 1.1:

Additions:

- Find kelp in the oceans.

- Craft compost to grow plants and trees faster and bigger.

- Craft steel lanterns, they're waterproof!

- Craft extravagant gem chandeliers.

- Find basalt, a new shiny block to build with.

- Use dirt and water to craft clay at a press.

Tweaks:

- Wooden platforms are now 'reinforced platforms' and require iron. This is to make them a more advanced building material for later in the game.

- Dropped chests and pole bonus clothing items are no longer removed from the world.

- The more valuable gems are a bit less likely to show up while meditating.

- Clothing now degrades slowly over time.

- There are now tips in the early stages of the game.

- Options added to change sound volume, and restore double-time purchase.

Bug fixes:

- Now uses a much safer method to save worlds, so losing a world to a crash is now very unlikely.

- Can no longer breathe underwater by swimming through solid blocks.

- Fixed issue with crystals when restoring from backups.

- Fixed issue with artificial light traveling too far under water.

- Fixed some crash issues.

- Dropbears now die if burned.
