Dogbyte's Blocky Roads [$0.99] quietly crept onto the App Store last week, and ever since people in our forums have been going crazy with its vehicle editing functionality. To back up a bit, Blocky Roads is, as Eli might say, "one of those" side-scrolling racing games which we've seen plenty of in the App Store over the years. Despite being a genre that's been done so often, Blocky Roads is actually quite well-executed, and also quite fun. The real kick here is that everything in the game is created with Minecraft-y voxels, and that extends to the actual vehicles you'll use. You have the ability to build a vehicle block by block, and as you can see below, the creativity of the gamers playing Blocky Roads is phenomenal.


Up first, of course, is our very own TouchArcade logo, recreated in blocky vehicle form:

Finally, a very clever riff on the guy from Temple Run, running from an evil monkey:

There are several more cool creations in our forums, and I'm sure that there will be many more to come. The bulk of the examples above are from our forum member oooooomonkey, who has quite the creative touch (and probably a little too much free time on his hands. Kidding!), but several other members have been contributing as well. The developer is also quite active in the forums, and is taking suggestions and feedback on how Blocky Roads can be improved further. One thing already in the works is an endless mode, which should be a great addition to the level-based nature of the game as it is now. Definitely check out some of the other creations in the forums, and if you have any to add upload them there for the rest of the world to see.

    I want the crystal ship! (RV, breaking bad)

    • PresidentZer0

      Is it possible to upload/download the cars?

  • blackbear219

    Ok, I know my BTTF Delorean wasn't great but it's like the only one you didn't post. Snubbed by the bearded one! :)

  • one.sixty.four

    Those are awesome! I bought the game, but I have no idea how to build a car. :(

  • rewyan

    Never even considered the game until now. I think I'll check it out.

  • Pocketnova

    This post alone sold me. Buying now.

      TA, we need more articles like this one. These are the type of articles that sell me, the ones that show cool things that people can do. Most people don't care to read long reviews on things they aren't interested in. To be honest, I usually only get through the first paragraph of a review that I don't really care about. Articles such as this one grab my attention. Thank you TA, and I hope you do more articles like these.

  • Taclys

    You should do an article on Space Qubes creations :P

  • ImJPaul

    I didn't know you could make your own car!!! That's a pretty awesome feature. If it wasn't for my probable $20-$30 iOS week then I'd be all over this. Still may get it just to add to my backlog though.

    Now for a level editor...hint, hint.

  • ste86uk

    Some very good cars built there, I could never be that creative
