Teleport workbenchA: You need one dirt to get it. After that you go to the portal and select the workbench. It takes time for the workbench to teleport in.

Q2: How do I place blocks?

A: Put the block you want to place in your hand, then tap where you want to place the block. Your blockhead will go to that place and place the block.

Q3: How do I destroy blocks?

A: Tap on the block you want to destroy. Your blockhead will go there and destroy the block. It takes time, though.

Q4: How do you get fur?

Blockhead meets gorillaA: 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?

A: You need to have the tailor’s bench to craft clothing. Once you have it you can craft clothing out of linen, (which is made from the tailor’s bench) leather, and fur.

Q6: How do you craft a bed?

A: You craft a bed from the woodwork bench. It takes one wood to make. It will take a while to make.

Q7: How do you play 2 players?

A: You need to invite someone in Game Center. Once the person accepted the request you can play with him/her! You can even turn on voice chat!

Q8:  How do you build back walls?

Shelter with back wallA: You just place a normal block in the air (adjunct to an existing block). It will automatically make 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?

Boat on waterA: You need the craft bench. Once you have it, you can make it with 2 woods and 2 linens.

Q11: Where do you get water?

A: You get water from oceans or lakes. You can use a bucket to collect it, or dig it up when it’s frozen. (Thanks to desTROYer74)

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?

A: There are linen clothing, fur clothing, and leather clothes. You make these in the Tailor’s Bench, which you make in the Workbench, and it costs 1 stone and 5 flax.

Q15: How do you paint walls?

A: You’ll need the Mixing Bench and the Press. To get paint, you need a pigment (which is made in the Press), 5 oil, and a tin bucket. You can upgrade the mixing bench so it can mix colors too.

Q16: How many blocks can one paint bucket paint?

A: One bucket of paint can paint 128 blocks.

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?

Riding donkeyA: 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)

Q20: How do you find gems?

Found GemA: You find gems in naturally generated caves. Alternatively, you can get it from the use of Golden Pickaxe or meditating. (Thanks to desTROYer74)

Q21: How do you use voice chat in a multiplayer game?

A: First you need to enable voice chat for both people. Then, you talk into your iDevice and the other player will hear you.

Q22: What do you do if you run out of food?

A: Well, if you killed all the dodos and chopped down all the trees, you are out of luck.  You need to wait for them to spawn.  You can also meditate to obtain food by chance (thanks to BananaGummyBear64). If you didn’t chop down all the trees, though, you can harvest them by tapping the food on them. Your blockhead will go there and take the food. Don’t worry, your guy won’t die out of hunger.  It just make your guy unhappy and slow. If you are lucky enough to have Golden Shovel, You can use it to dig for seeds. (Thanks to desTROYer74)

Q23: How do you find animals?

Donkeys and carrotsA: Animals are spawned by the game. At the beginning you won’t see any, but in time, you will start to see dropbears (some called them gorillas), dodos, and donkeys.  Donkeys are the rarest animals of all. You only can find them where carrots grow. (see Q35 for how to get carrot)

Q24: What do maple seeds do?

A: They can be planted into a tree, but only if you know how to plant.  (See Q9 for how to plant)

Q25:  How do you kill a donkey?

A: You kill a donkey by bare hand with four hits or a flint spear with two hits.

Q26: How do I make a workbench?

A: You don’t make them, you teleport them in. (See Q1)

Q27: How do you travel quick?

A: It depends on what you’re going over. If you’re going across the ocean, you should use a boat. (See Q10 on how to make a boat) If you’re going over land, It would be wise to wear boots (See Q6 for how to make clothing) You can also use a donkey (See Q18 on how to ride a donkey.) They go so fast!

Q28: How do you find a cave?

A: Look below the dirt ground and find empty spaces.  You dig into the empty spaces and check out see if it leads to an opening.  You will bound to find a cave if keep looking this way.

Q29: How do you find time crystal caves?

Time crystalA: All caves have at least one time crystal ore in them.  In one cave, I found over fifteen time crystal ores…and I’m still finding more!  After you found time crystal ores, don’t hurry to dig them all out.  Dig just enough to upgrade your Portal to teleport in an amethyst pickaxe.  It will get you two times more time crystal when you using it to dig time crystal ores.

Q30: How do you gain happiness?

A: You need to have at least half of the following: good health, high energy, not hungry, and comfortable environment (like a sunny day) to have high happiness.

Q31: How do you build a bucket?

A: First, You need 1 limestone to upgrade the craft bench to level 2.  After that, you can build a bucket with 3 tin ingots.

Q32: How do we get apples and oranges?

Orange treeA: You first need apple and orange trees (see Q9 on how to plant).  After that, you can harvest from the apple and orange trees. You harvest it by tapping the apples and oranges.

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?

Reach spaceA: 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).

(Thanks to desTROYer74)

Q40: Do I get to keep the bucket when I make Coffee?

A: Yes. (Thanks to desTROYer74)

Q41: Do I get to keep the cup once I drink Coffee?

Q43: How much can my Blockhead carry?

A: On top of the 4 items of clothing, a blockhead can carry 7 baskets, of which each basket can hold 4 items. You can carry baskets or chests within those baskets, and those can also contain filled chests, so in theory there is no limit. (Thanks to desTROYer74)

Q44: How big is the world, and how long does it take to circumnavigate?

A: The world is 15,000 blocks in circumference, and may take about 3 hours to travel all the way around. (Thanks to desTROYer74)

A: You need a kiln, which is made in the workbench level 2 and you need 1 dirt, 1 clay and 10 sticks to make it.

Q48: How do you light things on fire?

A: You either need to use a ember, which is made in the campfire using 1 stick, or placing a bed next to either kind of fire. (see Q13 on how to start a fire.)

Q49: How do you find coffee cherry trees?

A: Just go navigate the world, and you’ll be bound to find some.

hi, is it possible to reach the top height of the game by this i mean keep going higher and higher with a ladder will i eventually come to an end?

Reply

Matthew January 28, 2013 at 10:56 am

Personally, I haven’t built anything very tall yet. According to the game, all worlds are 15,000 block wide by 500 block deep. It is logical to assume that the sky is much less than 500 block high since the nature of the game is going down instead of going up. It should be interesting to find out. If anyone tried it already, please share with us.

Matthew January 29, 2013 at 1:16 am

Finally, we got the answer. Check out Question 36 above.

Wesley February 1, 2013 at 9:37 pm

Something about Q23: You can spawn dodos using dodo eggs. You just place them down like a normal block, and if you wait long enough, a dodo will hatch. And something else about Q36: It’s actually 451 blocks until your breath bar appears, and it takes 453 blocks to get the achievement.

Reply

Wesley February 1, 2013 at 9:56 pm

About Q25: it actually takes 8 hits to kill a donkey by hand. When you kill it, it looks like it falls to the side. Something else, a plant that you probably don’t know is chili. I found it naturally. It looks like a dark, woody shrub.

Reply

Wesley March 18, 2013 at 8:02 pm

You need one marble, which looks a lot like limestone, but lighter. It is found in caves. After you got that in your inventory, click on the craft bench and upgrade it.

Reply

Wesley April 2, 2013 at 9:31 pm

About Q45: you only need a level 1 furnace to make a bronze ingots ( it makes 3 ingots at a time)

Oh and my blockhead has traveled the whole world and I did not see any coffee cherry trees :( do I need to do it again? Oh and what are all the things at the top of the pole thingys I have the snow hat and the grass skirt but what r the other ones

Reply

Wesley April 15, 2013 at 9:32 pm

You might not have coffee cherry trees in your world or the coffee cherries weren’t ready for picking yet. Sorry, but you may have to start again and wait at the trees. Do you know what the trees look like? They look like mango trees, but it has slightly darker leaves. The other special clothing items are the “South Pole Boots of Speed”, and the “Sunrise Hat of Fullness”.

Reply

Wesley April 15, 2013 at 9:38 pm

The things on top of the poles that you can’t destroy are special clothing items.

hey peeps at blockhead world how long does it take for a coffee tree to grow the cherries u need to make coffee

Reply

Wesley May 13, 2013 at 9:44 pm

I think that the coffee cherry trees take the same amount of time to create as oranges, apples, cherries, pinecones and those other items.. I haven’t tested it yet though, so I might be wrong.

Reply

Wesley July 5, 2013 at 1:05 pm

Coffee cherry trees take a really long time to grow, so if you have a coffee cherry, I suggest you plant it in compost.

Whenever I try to play block heads I sit there to let the game to load up and after I’ve wait the two characters do random activities as in they’ll walk somewhere or dig something up that’s off the screen and isn’t a probable way that I could’ve touch or they just do it whenever I don’t even touch the screen. Any help?

Reply

Wesley June 4, 2013 at 7:57 pm

I’m not sure but I do have a few answers. If you have a tinfoil hat, it makes the blockheads do random activities. There also might be a bug to the game, though it’s never happened to me before. If the problem isn’t either of those two, I honestly have no clue.

Makenzie June 30, 2013 at 11:48 pm

If you don’t go on blockheads for a while, what goes on or what happends?

Reply

Wesley July 3, 2013 at 5:41 pm

If you had a queue on, the Blockhead will do it. If it is too tired to work, nothing happens. Dropbears don’t attack if you are away. If the Blockhead has nothing to do, it will pretty much go into something like hibernation until you get back. Energy, health, happiness and hunger don’t drain when you’re away either.

Victoria July 6, 2013 at 1:11 pm

My blockhead is stuck in the middle of the ocean, there’s only water and ice, and I have no food and its happiness, energy and health is all down! What do I do to save myself without deleting my world?!

Reply

Wesley August 9, 2013 at 8:44 pm

I’m not actually that sure, but probably less than twenty blocks.

Reply

Wesley August 25, 2013 at 9:40 pm

The answer is 16 blocks high.

Reply

Wesley August 14, 2013 at 12:44 pm

May I say something about Q44? If you have fur boots, you pick up the South Pole Boots of Speed, wear them and keep all your stats up, you take around 1 hour instead of 3 hours. I’ve done it in 45 minutes.

Reply

Wesley August 14, 2013 at 12:50 pm

About Q35: Some of the items that I’ve gotten from meditation (I couldn’t possibly name all of them because I have 4 blockheads and 2 of them meditate all the time) are:

Clay, Time Crystal (1), coffee cherry, carrot, gold ingot, iron ingot, stick, bronze ingot, tin ingot, copper ingot, steel ingot, flax, dodo feather, orange, mango, apple, cherry, chili, amethyst, sapphire, emerald, ruby, diamond, and much more.

Okay, so I like to play with my friends through game center but, when someone tries to invite me to a game it says “not excepting invites” but i can invite people to my games, i just cant play others worlds. Please help!

Reply

Wesley September 9, 2013 at 9:54 pm

Well, to tell the truth, I haven’t encountered that problem before. There could be a bug in the game and it might be fixed in the next update. You might want to play on a server or local wi-fi. There also instead might be a problem in gamecenter and there are some settings. I encountered a similar problem though: when my friends invite me, the notification doesn’t send, but I can send notification to them. I honestly have no idea what happened. Sorry, but I can’t help you.

How do you make a tin bucket? I’m using Android system

Reply

Wesley November 8, 2013 at 10:09 pm

As far as I know, I have not seen an more ways to craft buckets. I will keep searching for ways! (This only applies to the new update of Blockheads. If you have the old version, create it with 3 tin ingots in a craft bench lv. 2.)

Reply

Wesley November 8, 2013 at 10:33 pm

Actually, in the new version, you make the tin bucket in a metalwork bench (which you make with five bronze ingots and two coal) and you use three tin ingots (which you make by smelting three tin ore in an at least lv 1 furnace). The tin bucket is selected at the first square of choices.

In this game, you cannot kill any Blockheads. I’ve already tested it.

Wesley May 4, 2014 at 5:09 pm

Blockheads can now die in the new update. They can regen at the portal though.

What if your blockhead wont destroy blocks?

Reply

Wesley February 10, 2014 at 2:07 pm

Maybe your blockhead is too tired, too hungry or too injured. Sometimes it can be a glitch in the game. If your blockhead’s happiness is low, it will cause the blockhead to take a very long time. Try mining iron with a bronze pickaxe next to lava!

You can remove it by tapping the remove button and it will appear in your inventory, but there is no way to actually destroy any blocks or whatsoever unless, but I have not tested this yet, that you throw it on the ground and wait a while, then the item may despawn.
