Blockland is a worth-it kind of game where you are this little character who is able to build his OWN GAME inside of the game. It's also worth it seeing the fact that you can meet people on the way rather by joining someone's game or making your own. It's honestly what it says. It's YOUR world with YOUR own rules.

Before we even get started, some people might say "Oh, this looks like a Minecraft copy." but that is incorrect, as it was around way before Minecraft was even thought up of. It's not like Roblox either (Ah the famous Blockland vs Roblox wars...) because of the more solid platform and no subscription. So what is this then? Good question. I think Badspot, the creator of the game, can sum it up quite nicely:

"Blockland is an online multiplayer game where you build things with bricks.
It's like playing with legos on the internet."

In my mind, Blockland is one of the best construction/building sandbox games ever made. It is one of my personal favorites that I've played since 2007. I probably have over 600 hours ingame. (Not including Steam) You can do just about anything in this game, from FPS Team Deathmatches to racing to <variable>. Blockland is quite fun by itself, but the real reason you get it is for the high modability. Thousands of community creations keep the game interesting, and populated. Vehicles, weapons, gamemodes, scripts, events, this game has it all for customization. While singleplayer lets you experiment and test, multiplayer is where most people will choose to spend their time. There is always a server up for a specific type of play. (And they usually have good admins)

There is one part where Blockland has an issue...

The community is not amazing. (Most of the modders are amazing though) If you go on the official forums you will most likely see tons of hate/spam/garbage/negativity. The moderators do a good job of clearing out the useless and hurtful stuff, but I feel as if its always been like this. If you are like me, you really don't let it get to you; but I can see how it might be unacceptable to others.

Other than this (really) small issue, I completely and fully recommend Blockland to anybody that is even slightly interested in sandbox games or being creative.

10/10

Makin' Pancakes, Makin' Lego Pancakes. Make Lego and I put it in a Pancake. Lego Pancakes, that's what I'm gonna make. LEGO PAAANCAAAAKES!


If you can find good mods for it, it's great. But they can be cumbersome to install and manage. What this game would really benefit from is Steam Workshop, but I don't foresee that happening.

I give a tenative recommendation to the Patient Builder who'll mod the game effectively.

Most of the people complaining about development are older users (they have been around for years). Stop it, guys. You can't expect the game to stay fun forever.

I think that Blockland is a really neat game. After playing for years (bought it around 2009) I still find it fun to play.

I think a lot of the reviews compared it what it used to be. However, I got it pretty recently (within the past 3 months) and I think it's pretty good. The building and overall gameplay took me a while to get used to it, but it plays fairly easily after that. The building system is a bit annoying, but you get used to it. The game modes are pretty good, but most of them are optimized for multiplayer. Speaking of multiplayer, the overall amount of servers and activity is decent. There are a lot of servers with varying game modes. The community seems OK from what I've seen on the forums, so no complaint there. However, I wish this game had Workshop support and more updates. Even though there is no Workshop, mods are pretty easy to download, but since Return to Blockland was discontinued they are a bit harder to get to work. Overall, I'd recommend it with a 7.5/10

Gr8 game. However, you must realize this game is nothing without addons. The tools and bricks included within the game are basic. If you decide to purchase this game then you gotta go to the offical forums and get some addons!

I played this game back when it wasn't on Steam, I was one of those annoying five-years-olds who destroyed other people's stuff. I had a one month membership on this game, and I payed it non-stop (most likely over 200 hours total) for the short time I had it. After I ran out of the membership, I went to Roblox (bad idea, big war going on between Blockland and Roblox at that time). After I quit Roblox, I went to Minecraft. Then I (semi)quit Minecraft and went to Steam. After about two years on Steam, I found this game. I had wonderful flashbacks of how me and my cousin would destroy everything, and build it again, then destroy it, again and again and again. My previously mentioned cousin actually bought this game for me (props to you, my friend!) on steam and we played. Although a lot changed, almost to the point where I couldn't recognize it, I still had fun. The new maps were fun, the old maps were still fun, and the whole game had been transformed into a world of small communities and close friends. This is one of my favorite games right now, and I recommend it for my own story, but you should buy this game so you can make your own story, and in a few years, when you are a pro at Blockland, look back at this review and make your own. I know that sounds really cheesy, but seriously, we need to have fun with our games and tell the amazing times and adventures that we have in those games to show people why they should create their own. So, buy this game, right now. Make your own story. Make your own review. Do what I have done, tell others to do so. This is the perfect game for it, so much to do, so much to see. So, what are you waiting for, do it!

Endless possibilities = Endless Fun

I have owned Blockland for a very long time, I recently transferred Blockland to Steam, the game has amazing mod/addon support, definetly one of the best building games out there.

Also Blockland is NOTHING LIKE MINECRAFT.
I don't know where people get that from, its a sandbox game not a survival game, but you can build a survival game and then have your buddies join.

Blockland really deserves to be more commonly known, it has amazing potential, theres also tons of vehicles you can download as well as weapons, have a Race or a Team Deathmatch! Or Do anything you want!

Don't let negative comments discourage you, many of the ones who write bad reviews are permanently banned users who hate the creator of the game.

Seriously don't have second thoughts buy this game right now before you regret it!

This game has making me freak out when my cousin just showed me Blockland. This game is the best game I have ever seen in my entire life! When you build things with bricks or make a Blockland video or join some servers and ♥♥♥♥, I could never get bored on it anymore. That's how I am addicted to this game.
