BlockStarPlanet has over ten million downloads via Google PlayStore and a 4.0-star rating. Can we call it a successful game? Well, yes. BlockStarPlanet boasts of a high download count and is a popular mobile game among kids. However, the game has been prone to a lot of hate since its launch. This is because of its popular predecessor, MovieStarPlanet. Apparently, many MovieStarPlanet users had run into issues and received no help from the developers. According to reports, a lot of user accounts get hacked on MovieStarPlanet. Parents claimed that the game’s social environment is not at all suitable or safe for kids. MovieStarPlanet has received very poor ratings on Google PlayStore but is still up and running for users. But, is there a chance that BlockStarPlanet will shut down in 2022 because of all the commotion? Let’s find out.
BlockStarPlanet is a mobile game specially developed for Android and iOS platforms. The base game is free to download, and users can play most of it for free. However, the developers offer a paid subscription called the VIP subscription for an enhanced experience and access to bonus features. BlockStarPlanet is actually a sandbox mobile game that lets players build their own multiplayer worlds to play with friends. You can also join worlds created by your friends and enjoy a private social experience. The concept is cool (like Minecraft), and as expected, the game is extremely popular among kids. Most importantly, BlockStarPlanet doesn’t feature as much toxicity as MovieStarPlanet. However, according to Sensor Tower, BlockStarPlanet’s earnings haven’t been up to the mark compared to MovieStarPlanet.
Is BlockStarPlanet shutting down in 2022?
MovieStarPlanet Aps, the company behind BlockStarPlanet and MovieStarPlanet, have been very casual about reports regarding their games. As mentioned before, MovieStarPlanet (their first mobile game) is extremely prone to hacks and features a very toxic environment for kids. You can check out the reviews on their PlayStore page or from here. However, instead of fixing what’s wrong, the developers went on to create a sequel to MovieStarPlanet. Currently, MovieStarPlanet 2 is in early access – users can download from PlayStore. We haven’t come across major complaints regarding BlockStarPlanet. The game is doing quite well among kids who like building blocks instead of fashion. Considering the high VIP Subscription price of $3.99/week or $44.99/year and the number of downloads, BlockStarPlanet is possibly doing well enough not to shut down in 2022.
Boonie Planet, another of MovieStarPlanet Aps’s creations, was shut down, possibly due to less revenue collection than expected. So, if BlockStarPlanet manages to bring enough profit for the developers, the game will not face a shutdown. However, since we will be seeing a more promising release (MovieStarPlanet 2) soon, the future of MovieStarPlanet and BlockStarPlanet is currently very uncertain. But, considering all reports until now, it is unlikely that the developers will pull the plug on BlockStarPlanet in 2022. We will have to wait and see!
