With update v1.4 we added a Gem feature to the app. This feature limits building larger and more complex games to players who do not own the Bloxels Game Builder Starter Kit. Those who own the Kit can validated their Gameboard to earn 250 additional Gems to unlock most of the builder experience, and now with update 1.4.1 also includes unlocking the entire game map.
Some common questions regarding gems...
Why was this feature added?
This new feature is important because it allows us to continue to offer the Bloxels Builder App as a FREE download for everyone to experience and gives our players an additional incentive to purchase the Bloxels Gameboard, which ensures that we can continue making Bloxels even better.
250 Gems can be earned by validating that you have the gameboard and additional gems can be earned by completing other activities in the app. The gems can then be used to unlock many of the core builder tools permanently.
Can I buy gems?
No, Gems are exclusively tied to activities and are notavailable as in-app purchases. They can only be unlocked by owning the Bloxels Game Builder Starter Kit as well as completing other activities in the app. If you own a Bloxels Gameboard, you can learn more about how to unlock 250 gems here.

Does buying items with Gems apply to all games I create?
Yes, as you unlock content with Gems it applies to all past, present and future games you create and is unlocked permanently. For example, if you've unlocked 40 rooms, any game you create can be as big as 40 rooms.
What if I had the App before Gems were added?
If you had Bloxels Builder installed on your device prior to the v1.4 update, we've recently upgraded your Bloxels accounts to include all Gem unlocks to be used to upgrade your Bloxels editor. You should have received an email to your Bloxels account with more details, and you can view that email here.
