If The Sandbox Evolution sounds familiar, it’s a takeoff from the original Sandbox game, a newer and more complete version for today’s mobile gamers. The game is created by Pixowl for Android and iOS devices, and the company does suggest that this is a game for anyone who enjoys Minecraft. More importantly, though, it’s one of many “God games” for mobile where you pretty much play the role of a supreme deity, creating and destroying things with just one tap on your screen. You can use the various elements to create your own world, but also your own heroes and villains, though as the game suggests, everything starts with the basics, meaning stone, water, soil, plants, and mountains.
This is truly a different kind of playing experience for those who are familiar with “God games” or “alchemy games,” where you create things from different elements. Aside from the features we told you about, this game also lets you share your created levels and make your own pixel art – that goes to show how complete this title is. So without further ado, let’s now bring you our list of The Sandbox Evolution tips, tricks and cheats, which should help you in the beginner’s aspects of creating your own world.
1. Complete Daily Quests Before Focusing On The Main Campaign
You may be all excited to give the regular campaign mode a try, but before you delve into that, you should first complete your daily quests. These are quests that refresh every day, and in here, you will get random player-created levels from the Sandbox Evolution community – these may vary in difficulty, so you’ll want to be prepared for anything. Depending on the difficulty of the levels, you may earn anywhere from a bit of additional mana, to a lot of it. Complete as many daily quests as possible so you can load up on mana.
2. Complete The Missions For Even More Mana And Premium Currency
Upon leveling up, the game will give you new missions, which you can then try to complete. These are different from your quests, and they will ask you to do certain things – you may have to create a world in five minutes, create something without using a certain element, etc. Like the quests, missions reward you with mana, but unlike quests, you don’t need to worry about having to complete them at a certain time; any missions you haven’t completed will simply be mixed in with the new ones. Some missions, in addition, will reward you with Karma, which is the game’s premium currency.
3. Play The Player-Created Levels
In the Worlds gallery, you will see a list of player-created levels – again, they may vary in difficulty, and will definitely vary in terms of design. Completing a level you haven’t finished yet will give you a varying amount of mana (again, depending on difficulty), though you can only be rewarded once. This is a great way to earn more mana if you’re short of it, and you can play through player-created worlds even if you’re done with your daily quests.
4. Save Mana By Unlocking Minimum Materials Required
Want to save up on your mana? You can do this by choosing only to unlock the minimum materials required. That means having your stone eroded by water if you want to create sand, for instance. As you can see, it’s not really the best and most convenient way to come up with sand, but the good thing is that you won’t have to spend any mana in the process. At some point, though, you may want to spend that mana, but if your supplies are a bit tight, the above workaround might help you out in a pinch.
5. Take Advantage Of Your Special Abilities
While playing in Game mode, you will be playing as any one of several characters, all depending on the theme of the level. For example, you can play as a caveman or a ninja, or you can play as a standard male character. That latter character is as basic as you can get, as he is only capable of jumping, while the caveman and ninja have their own special abilities which you can use. For the former, he can swing his club to easily kill enemies and make certain materials available. The ninja, on the other hand, uses his quickness to dash forward, and is best used for platforming purposes, and for parkouring your way around the Game mode levels. Those are just a few examples, so feel free to explore and experiment as you play Game mode and try each different level out for yourself.
