Do not use with WiFi or cell enabled.

In "local" mode, game is really cool, with ability to build a variety of worlds. When connected with shared worlds, is rife with worlds in which blocks spell out obscenities and inappropriate phrases. Caught us by surprise, given reviews.

Good Game, unless you download other worlds.

My 7 year loves this game, but I found that when he connected to other worlds, there was some inappropriate content. Some worlds had curse words written in them (F***ING, SH**, B**CH.) Another world he found had a detailed naked lady drawn into the landscape. My son found this innocently, but it was too late.

This title has:

Too much violence
Too much sex
Too much swearing

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (3):
Kids say (7):

EDEN - WORLD BUILDER is a good, solid app for budding architects, artists, engineers, or anyone with a healthy dose of creativity. It offers an experience similar to buying a bucket of LEGO pieces, but with more functionality and less cleanup. In addition to stacking blocks and objects to create buildings, vehicles, forests, or anything else players can think of, there are a variety of landscaping tools to shape the entire environment. This is the kind of app that players can interact with for hours at a time and not even realize how long it has been because they become so engrossed in its creative aspect. The lack of a strong goal-based system may deter some players from pouring a lot of time into this app, but those who take it for what it's worth -- a 21st century sketch pad that lets players bring their thoughts to life -- will no doubt enjoy all that it has to offer.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
