“The response we have received for Guncraft from the PC community has been nothing short of fantastic, so we’re thrilled to reach even more players by bringing the game to the Xbox 360 platform,” said John Getty, Lead Developer of Guncraft and founder of Exato Game Studios. "Guncraft is the perfect blend of sandbox gameplay, crafting, and intense FPS action.”

Marrying the addictive nature of block building sandbox games with the speed and competition of modern first-person shooters, Guncraft takes voxel-based gaming to a whole new level. Play through dozens of maps, then create your own level with secret tunnels and hiding holes to find the best look out for ambushing your friends. Players can create arenas based on anything imaginable, and once complete, utterly destroy them with bullets, bombs, grenades, tanks, helicopters and even laser swords. In the heat of battle, soldiers can create custom blockades and fortresses instantaneously.

About This Game

Block and Load! Combining the addictive nature of block building sandbox games with the speed and competition of modern first-person shooters, Guncraft takes voxel-based gaming to a whole new level. Players can create maps and arenas based on anything imaginable and, once complete, can utterly destroy them with bullets, bombs, grenades, tanks, helicopters, gunships, and much more. In the heat of battle, soldiers can create custom blockades and fortresses instantaneously. Watch out – just when you think you’re safe, enemies can tunnel through walls and dig through floors to ambush you from behind, above or below!

In addition to standard modes like Deathmatch, Team Deathmatch, and Capture the Flag, Guncraft offers over seven outlandish game modes like Lava Survival and Racing Mode, plus 100% customizable load-outs that include perks, weapons, vehicles and more. Even better, the core crafting mechanics of Guncraft are available throughout every aspect of the game, enabling players to build maps, prefabs, characters, and weapons on the fly, then decimate them all to take down enemies.

KEY FEATURES:
  • Voxel design coupled with hardcore FPS elements: Player-controlled vehicles, perks, killstreaks, class load-outs, clan system, and ranks.
  • Create custom levels, weapons, and characters – you are literally only limited by your imagination!
  • 7+ outlandish game modes for up to 16 players (Online/LAN), including:
  • “Lava Survival” – Magma slowly rises as players build upward to avoid the instant orange death. It’s a new variation of “Last Man Standing”.
  • “Onslaught” – Four players band together to fight off endless waves of deadly robot spiders, soldiers, drones, and aircrafts.
  • “Spleef” – Players drill and destroy blocks on the platform near or under their opponents in order to cause them to fall to their deaths, while fervently avoiding suffering the same fate.
  • “Siege Mode” – A building and prefab centric game mode where two teams are pitted in a race to build a trebuchet-style catapult first. Be sure to defend it, else you get your structure destroyed by the other team.
  • "Racing Mode" – Race to the finish and blow up everyone in front of and behind you in the process! You can even team up with a friend for some double dash style action in the fast paced new game mode!

Well there are good things about this game and bad thing

Good thing
- You can build your own weapon/maps/skins and other stuff.
- It has a good gameplay.
- The trailer saying pretty much about the game.
- Private server's to have fun with your friends it enabled.
- There's workshop for the game.

Bad thing
- The developers stop suporting the game.
- Low people on server's.
- Camper's. (People that hide and shoot you in 1 hit)

I choose that this game is really good.
If your still think this game is bad Check the gameplay on youtube.
But give it atleast a try to play it.

Thank you for reading.

At first, I assumed that this game might have been like a certain freeware game known as Build and Shoot, a fun little game that never really did get a lot of attention, but had a lot of fun ideas that make the game quite fun to play. Being able to dig trenches, a small wall, or even a fancy bunker made for an interesting game where the key to winning isn't just shooting people, but being able to build things to keep people from killing you as easily, be it as simple or complex as you desire.

This is not the case here.... All this game turned out to be is a simple run and gun game that provides silly killstreaks ala CoD.. Hell, it is nothing more than Blocks of Duty if anything.. The whole building aspect is utterly pointless in game, because there is no way to shoot over anything two blocks tall, meaning you can't use cover to protect yourself while you reload and fire from it. Heck, the mere act of building takes ages, and it is much easier to just ignore building all together and just shoot at each other. Even breaking the map isn't fun, let alone the fact that it can sometimes be very easy to fall off said map without warning in some places.

Seems the only building element in the game is for the guns, which of course is easier said than done, since it requires third-party programs in order to fully complete your gun, and even then it could still get denied if it doesn't meet certain requirements.. The guns that do pass, however, are frustrating beasts to deal with.

So, you can't build (let alone even use) cover in a game where you die really easily, the combat is pretty much CoD in block form, and oh yeah, some of the maps suck pretty bad too.. Can it get worse? How about the fact that the community is so small that it is depressing to just think about it?

Really, if you want a fun block builder/shooter game, stick with Build and Shoot, it is free and much funner than this, let alone it probably has more players than this game ever will.. And BaS doesn't even have a large community either, so that is saying a lot.

I dont know what to really say, so this will be quick. The UI sucks, game is fun and the graphics need to be polished. But still this game is fun to play 7/10. Another thing to the buyers: When you buy the game and see the terible UI dont quit, just go into the game a little bit and you will enjoy it!

I really freakin' love this game. It's well polished, simple to learn, it's fast and fun, controls are easy and fluid, building is fun... and there's tonnes of content to this game that I've yet to explore. Being able to customize your own weapons, levels, characters (to name a few) leaves an infinate open-endedness that will keep you entertained for ages. There are different game modes including my favourite a zombie-survival type mode that's lots of fun multiplayer. If you're on the fence about this one, let me give you a push and say GET THIS and lets battle :) the biggest problem unfortunately is that there's just hardly anyone playing it, which is a shame. Well done devs, this one's great value.

Well... it used to be fun but no one plays it anymore so if you are just getting this for yourself you'll have nothing to do and no one to play with, but if you and a few other friends get it then it is actually really fun.

Its not great... but at the same time its not horrable... I would much rather spend money on Cod, tf2, or planetside 2... It was fun for a while but lost its charm quickly. 6/10

This is an ok game its not worth $16 so get it when its on sale. It does not have very meny people playing at one time so you can't play that often. some of the workshop items can be over powered (they did try to prevent that) so you need to use workshop items because they are better than the default stuff but that means an infinite amount of weapon and skin possibilities. I would sugest getting ace of sapdes it is like this but better if you don't mind having no workshop weapons.
It is very fun but time staking long to make your own guns and maps.

Where are the players? On the short list of servers I saw, there were NO PLAYERS ON. With no single player or ability to play with bots, HOW AM I SUPPOSED TO PLAY THIS GAME?! At this point, it wasn't even worth the %80 price of $2.99 that I paid.

A fun and unique game but puts everything against Ace Of Spades. I prefer ace of spades than this.
The killstreaks and stuff is cool but there is no one who plays this!
