Based on the 60+ hours play time, here's what I think about the game:


Pros:
+ Graphic are cute, and there's lots of costume to make your bald white character look nicer lol.
+ There's skill (known as perk) to help your character do much more better and faster in this game.
+ Crafting is quite enjoyable and challenging. It's not really that simple, but not that complex either.
+ Getting resource is so damn easy here (compared to other sandbox game I played).
+ PVP is somewhat funny, not all serious and scary :D I lol-ed so hard when my friend using the shrink-wand on me.
+ Getting to other's people realm is easy (unless they lock the realm or it's only accessible for friend only). So when you got bored you can explore other people homes.

Cons:
- Camera is really..quite an annoying issue in this game. Even though you can unlock camera for "better" view of the world, it still quite uncomfortable.
- The no-cancel action. Like you mistakenly click for the wrong block. And there's really no way to cancel that action, not even moving your character can cancel it (unless you do the wrong click far away from your character).
- The perks have it's disadvantages tool. Each time you level up, you get a chance to pick 1 of the 3 random skill the system give you. Some tools needs certain skill so that you can use it to make items, and you will suffer a lot if you choose the less-important one (since leveling up become harder once you're pass 15 or maybe 20).
- The player(s) can be quite amazingly annoying sometimes. I'm not saying all players are like that. But really, some of them love to use caps lock so much it hurts, or try to scam using the old piggy tip method, or begging like their life really depends so much on your pity, and some of them doesn't even understand the word "no". And that's what I encounter on daily basis while I play the game.
-The quest. I'm aware that this a free-to-play game with a slice of Micro-transaction, but really, after you have done the basic quest, in order to get more quest you have to buy it with cubits. And there's only 2 quest in store, which one of them cost like 2000 cubits. It might be wiser to just make the quest equal to all paying player and the non-paying player.


---
I quiet enjoy the time I spent in this game, but that's because I have my friends also playing this game with me. On the other hand I also feel the game is quite boring due to lack of quest and the annoying player (and also that awkward camera...).

And the stress only got worse if you decide to play without using real money to buy the glorious cubits (because you need a lot of those to even craft some important item like doors, key (for personal/friend/or password-protect), cash register (to safely trade with your friends), etc.

(EDITED AT: 4/19/2015) (REMASTERED REVIEW)

Summary of the game:
It is basically a social, sandbox and mmo game, in short, minecraft online.

Gameplay: You start off inside a tutorial realm, which is called, cubic castles 101. The realm will teach you the basics of the game. Once you have left the realm, you will be given a starter castle deed. You will be finding a place for you to make a realm. Once the realm is placed down, you will of course enter you're realm. Gifts will appear in your realm; you must choose one, depending on your gender. Example, I choose blue and not red because I'm a boy and i want boy clothes and random starter materials. There should also be the last tutorial inside you're realm, which is about the sentry that protects stuffs, then the game will leave you alone and all the freedom is yours. You can now travel to different realms for resources or for adventure maps. It’s a sandbox game, so you can make pixel arts, games, adventure maps , you’re home or basically anything.

Community: The community isn't perfect, you will be seeing bad player's, you will encounter scammers, but overall, its good.

Cross platform: The game is cross platformed! You can basicaly download and play cubic castles on windows,mac,android and ios!

Grinding: It is grindy, depending on how you choose to play. If you choose to collect all the rare clothing’s or cosmetic items, then yes it is grindy. If you choose to build, then it isn’t grindy in some ways, why? well, you will be buying a bigger room for your big project which will take a week of grinding stuffs. It is like playing csgo, dota 2 and tf2 without bothering the skins and hats!

There is only 1 currency at the game, which is called, cubits. Cubits are earned by finishing daily quest's, mining random blocks or by making a shop and make business.

Does it force me to buy cubits using real money?: I’m goanna half to say yes to this one, not because it is grindy, but because they deserve my money.

P.S I haven't paid yet, but you get the point.

(TAKE NOTE: THE CLOTHINGS OR COSMETIC ITEMS DO NOT GIVE ANY UNFAIR ADVANTAGES TO FREE TO PLAY PLAYERS, NO MATTER HOW RARE THE CLOTHINGS OR THE COSMETIC ITEM IS AND YOU CAN GET EVERYTHING YOU WANT IF YOU ARE WILLING TO GRIND, YES EVERYTHING!)

To all who have wrong reviews, thieves can no longer scam you, because they can’t get items from you're realm by picking them up, opening storages or using crafting tables without access. Scammers cannot scam you now, because the trading system finally exists! (The game has been updated)

Well, first of all I've got 650+ hours on the game, so I'm pretty experienced to say the least, giving me the right to give an honest review.

This game is somewhat minecraft based, having to craft a majority of items. While also interacting with other players in order to trade goods, or recieve them. There is an ingame currency, however it can also be earnt, and with the right knowledge, you can earn it easily with a marketing eye. For instance, I have a friend who has NEVER brought cubits (ingame currency), and yet always seems to have more than me; Of which, I buy the cubits.

Pros:
Great support- With that said, I have sent plenty of reports in. They are answered fairy fast, usually in less than 2 days depending on how busy they are with tickets.

Friendly players- A lot of the players are friendly, willing to help newbies settle in, and even build if necessary. I personally love to help new players, and will donate them a few hats, and wings depending on how many I have in stock/and or spare. I'll ask if they need any help, and try my best to fill in that request. Many other players put themselves out there to do the same.

Events- There are plenty of events that take place within the game, although there is a forum to keep up to date with this, as well as a facebook page, ect. Easter, Halloween, and Christmas are what I've seen so far. It's nice to know that the devs go out of there way to make it just that much more interesting. Some of the events include free /limited/ hats, if you're lucky enough to catch the person giving them.

Updates- The moment a bug is spotted, and reported in, it is soon after fixed. Updates are frequent, and the game tends to run smoothly (depending on your internet strength).

Cons:
Difficulty- When you start the game, you have no perks. (perks are basically abilites you get with levelling up, making gameplay more fun) and so it takes longer to do stuff, such as mining very slowing and not being able to jump very high makes parkour difficult.
