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!

Guncraft is probably the most fun game I own in my library, and I have a lot of games in my library (CS:GO, Terraria, and Starbound come to mind). But nothing can compare to the awesome experiance I get when I play Guncraft. The latest updates added some really nice shading, to make the game look more professional, and now this small indie company is coming to Xbox. For $15, I would buy this game, I already did, and I can say that it was most certainly worth the money, I've been playing for 3 years, so I can tell you this review is accurate.

Once you enter a game, you may have some challanges to overcome (Deadsin, Redcorpion, and a few other players come to mind). I highly reccommend taking the tutorials, first thing. It will prepare you for whats ahead, there are a variety of clans you can join if you like, Clan of Bacon [Bcon] is the best one, you should join that.

The game has aspects to it that no other Voxel shooter has (AoS, Blockstorm etc.) The Hookshot! It's a grappling hook that if used correctly can amount to you flying over the whole map raining bullets on your enemies below.

Do I recommend the game? YES, Do I think it's worth the money? YES, Do I think you should ignore all the people who don't recommend this game? YES.

One small issue though.... There are not a ton of players, but if you hang around the game, you can find people online.

I'd have to say for an indie title, Small poish issues aside it's a pretty solid game for the price. The community is small but friendly and helpful and the staff tends to listen to their clients (Us!). Weapons aren't so much 'Overpowered' as it is a case of there being a plethroa of playstyles/weapon loudouts and classes which offer an all but endless mix of play options and it can take people awhile to find a set of each that works for them. The editors take a bit of learning to use but are extremely quick and easy to use once you get used to the options and shortcuts and one can often find themselves wasting countless hours in the map editor or gun smithery getting their tools of destruction jusst right. Overall I'd give this a 7/10, Like I said it has some growing to do but the company's learning as they go and I for one support them. :D

Hey, 15 bucks? Forget it! NOBODY plays this game, the sounds and gameplay are so bad, the quality of everything sucks. All of the servers (as in 5) have nobody on them, and the developers are so foolish enough to try to bring it to console??

And the reason I have barely played this game is because I can't! Nobody goes on it!!

My advice:
Don't buy this game unless you like to play alone.

This game used to be really good, but now it's not. The updates have changed the UI to something terrible. Along qi=wtih that, there seem to be more bugs the longer this game exists.
If you do still find this game fun even with all of that, nobody else plays this game anymore. The community, game, and existense of it have died.

This game entertained me for a solid five minutes before I ran out of things to do. Ace of Spades is a much better example of what kind of game Guncraft tries to be, so buy that instead. I don't think it would be worth buying even if it only cost a single dollar.

I'm going to be completely honest, I have no idea what to even say about this game. Majority of servers are not hosted in the US therefore American players are going to find themselves suffering from high ping. Glitches are very common, and after a while you notice that its not uncommon to find players with overpowered weapons which were obviously skimmed over by whoever was moderating the workshop at the time. The game is still able to be saved, even though the chances are slim, major bug fixes and rebalances may just save this game. But until then, I'm going to have to give this game a not recommended.

Note to the devs:: If you are going to be a little bit lacking in gamemodes at least make it easy for players to create their own, a steam supported tool or such would make this game more appealing to creative minds and may be able to contribute towards the process of saving this dying game.

It's absolutely terrible. There's like 10 servers, almost all of them are empty, the gameplay rubberbands like crazy, It's just very bad. Don't waste your time.

Overpriced but definetly worth it in the long run if your looking for a fun multipalayer shooter! There is a whole bunch of different guns skins, and weapons! I give it a 8.5/10
