Brings Video Gaming To a Whole New Level For Kids Who Love To Build!

Most children love video games in some shape or form.

Twenty years ago you bought those small hand held games that had a single game on it and if you wanted a different game you had to go buy that specific handheld. Then if you wanted consoles you went from Atari up to the expensive platforms today on consoles like the PS4 and XboxOne.

And of course there’s the cost of the individual computer games themselves. But Bloxels changes all of that!

The Bloxels Builder Game Offers Tremendous Creativity Training

Give your kids the chance to create their own video game which can be played on a smart device just like the popular smartphone apps.

The difference is your child can create an old school Minecraft looking game and play their own creation.

This incredible new toy opens up your child’s creative mind and pushes them to achieve more by building better and more complex games each time they play.

Bloxels is a collaboration between physical manipulative parts and your Smart device.

Your child uses the specially designed game board and colored blocks to create individual elements that will appear in their finished game.

Then, using the Smart device to take a picture with the in-App and then uploading to the Bloxel App, these elements can be placed as rooms, backgrounds, characters, obstacles or almost anything else creating an overall finished game product that can be played or remade.

Pieces Included and a Basic Overview

The Bloxel Build Your Video Game set includes 320 special blocks in eight different colors, each color representing any element of terrain (for example blue blocks for water). The other colors include green, red, purple, white, pink, orange, and yellow.

By combining these terrain elements into the Bloxel App, your child can create rich and varied landscapes in which their characters can interact and complete tasks.

Actually building the game in the beginning couldn’t be easier. The App offers basic step by step instructions on how to builds, control and develop different game elements and suggests ways to improve their final game and game play experience.
