Islands (formerly Skyblox and Sky Block) is a sandbox game created by Easy.gg. It is heavily inspired by the SkyBlock gamemode from Minecraft. It also takes some elements from Hypixel's SkyBlock, also available for play in Minecraft. The game is about expanding an island and collecting resources to craft different items.
When first playing, the player spawns on their own islands with the basic tools and materials as well as some wheat. The player will be guided through the main gameplay features with an interactive tutorial. After the player have finished the tutorial there's a lot of freedom on what to do.
In Islands there are different islands which mobs spawn on which the player can kill for crafting materials and loot. There's a big selection from bows to spellbooks that the player can craft.
To unlock furniture crafting recipes the player can complete different tasks from merchants on the main hub island. These quests can range from mining iron rocks to growing tomatoes.
The player can choose to mine ores in the main hub and different mob islands. For automation, the player can buy totems that when placed down, will spawn the ore on either the ground or on conveyor belts.
There's both crops and fruits which can be farmed and sold to merchants for coins. Crops can be watered by collecting rainwater. Fertilizer can also be created by composting fish that was obtained via fishing. Most types of seeds are obtained by purchasing them for coins from a merchant on the main hub island.
Factories can be built with totems. There are totems for both crops and ores. The totem will spawn the item on conveyor belts which are placed by the player. There are other industrial items such as a stonecutter and oven to automate more tasks which would normally be done by the player.
There are big trading communities on social media platforms. Most players find it easier to gain coins by selling rare items to other players, instead of selling crops to merchants.
Although there isn't a big selection of colored blocks in Islands, players can still express their creativity and create amazing islands and pixel art.
Islands was shut down on July 14, 2020. It was deleted due to a DMCA request. Despite many players complaining about the deletion, it was expected to happen by many players at some point. This has caused a lot of protest games and groups being made. Although the developers changed the name to Islands, Roblox still deleted the game.
Islands was reopened on July 17, 2020 at 11:00 a.m. PST.
Despite being vastly popular, the game has some criticism.
- With the lack of a proper trading system, and staff refusing to ban scammers, it is very easy to get scammed.
- With an unstable data saving system. Many players can lose their entire inventory and/or their entire island if they leave while loading in.
- Some players experience issues loading in and can never get in a game.
