The Blockheads FAQ (Version 2.2) – A list compiled from Google search (last updated: Apr 7th 2013)
Q1: How do I get a workbench?
Q2: How do I place blocks?
Q3: How do I destroy blocks?
Q4: How do you get fur?
A: To get fur you need to kill these evil dropbears (some called them gorillas) or donkeys. (Beware! Dropbears attack!) After killing them they will drop fur and leather. Dropbears spawn in big trees early in the game. Look for a gray object at the top of big trees. Donkeys spawn on the ground later in the game.
Q5: How do you craft clothing?
Q6: How do you craft a bed?
Q7: How do you play 2 players?
Q8: How do you build back walls?
Q9: How do you plant seeds?
A: Make sure you have the seed in your hand, then tap on a dirt block. Make sure that it is the block that you can walk on, not too deep down or it won’t work. You can also plant trees too! (pinecones, maple seeds, apples, oranges, etc.)
Q10: How do you build a boat?
Q11: Where do you get water?
Q12: How do you make a shelter?
A: Just make a structure (a wall with top cover) with dirt, wood or stone. It will keep you away from rain and snow.
Q13: How do you start a fire?
A: There are two possibilities. One is setting a fire with an ember. It is quite dangerous because you could set yourself on fire! Second option is make it in a Campfire. Campfire is less dangerous because it won’t harm you. However, if it is beside a bed, the bed can catch fire, and you’d get hurt if you we’re sleeping in it!
Q14: What clothing is available?
Q15: How do you paint walls?
Q16: How many blocks can one paint bucket paint?
Q17: How many seconds does it take to sleep with fast forward and energy fully drained?
A: It takes 25 seconds if sleeping on a bed, 40 seconds without a bed. It also takes 2.5 minutes for your energy to start dropping after you fully sleep on a bed, 0 minutes when sleeping on the ground, and 12 minutes if you drank a cup of coffee. You can sleep again once your energy drops to 66%. It takes 9 minutes for your energy to drop from 100% to 0% once it starts dropping. (Thanks to desTROYer74)
Q18: How do you ride a donkey?
A: You need a Carrot on a Stick. Once you have that, tap a big donkey (if you tap a small one with the Carrot on a Stick, you will hurt it instead). You control the donkey the same way you control a boat: tilt.
Q19: How do you get Time Crystals?
A: You can find and mine Time Crystals in naturally generated caves. Alternatively, you can get it from the use of Golden Pickaxe or meditating. (Thanks to desTROYer74)

Q33: How do you find stone?
A: You need to go 6 blocks down to find stone.
Q34: Can you get killed?
A: Even when your health bar goes down to zero, you will not be killed. It’s been confirmed by the developer as well. You also can’t drown in water, or die from touching lava, or from climbing into outer space. (Thanks to desTROYer74)
Q35: How do you get a carrot?
A: There are more than one way to get carrot. Personally, I use meditate. You will get random items from meditate. Carrot is one of them. After you got your first carrot, you can plant it to grow more carrot (see Q9 for planting). Travel around and look for small light green plants is certainly another way.
Q36: How many blocks does it take to reach space and get the achievement?
A: It takes 451 blocks to reach space (from sea level). Once you reach space, the breath bar (blue bar) will appear and warn you about your losing breath. After you reached space, try to go up two more blocks, you will get the “Space climber” achievement.
Q37: How many blocks does it take to reach the center of the earth and get the achievement?
A: It is roughly around 500 blocks below ground level. (Thanks to desTROYer74)
Q38: Where can I find Gold?
A: You find it around 350 to 500 blocks below the ground.
Q39: How do I make coffee and what does it do?
A: You will need the following to make a cup of coffee:
1. Coffee Cherry, they grow on a certain tree most commonly found near the east/west equator (they can be grown by planting a Coffee Cherry).
2. Press (made from a level 2 Workbench)
3. Kiln (made from a level 2 Workbench)
4. Cup (made from a Kiln with Clay)
5. Bucket (made from a level 2 Craft Bench with 3 Tin Ingots)
6. Water (Found naturally in oceans and ponds at ground level or more uncommonly in caves – scoop with a bucket)
Use the press to turn the Coffee Cherry into a Green Coffee Bean.
Use the Kiln to roast the Green Coffee Bean into a Roasted Coffee Bean.
Use a level 2 Craft Bench to make the Coffee with: 1 Cup, 1 Bucket of Water, and 1 Roasted Coffee Bean
Drinking a cup of coffee will fully restore your energy bar, and it will not start to drop for 12 minutes (as opposed to 2.5 minutes from fully sleeping on a bed, or 0 minutes if sleeping on the ground).
