Minecraft gets defensive

I have a confession to make. I don't like Minecraft.
In fact, it's not even a case of actively disliking it. I just can't be bothered with it. Why should I make my own fun? That's what game developers are for.
You might think this fact puts Block Fortress at a distinct and unexpected disadvantage, as it borrows the aesthetic and blocky construction ethos of Mojang's modern classic.
Fortunately, Block Fortress funnels these elements into a much more entertaining (for me, at least) iOS game.
Finding a quiet spot to settle down
Rather than chuck you a bunch of construction-based toys and task you with grinding out a meagre virtual existence, Block Fortress chucks you a bunch of construction-based toys and tasks you with building a tooled-up base.
A quirky mix of Minecraft, tower defence, and FPS elements, Block Fortress makes for an absorbing experience despite some rough edges
