I found this game about five years ago (before it hit steam). The second I booted the game up I was having fun. I think I would of had 800+ hours on the game before steam. This was the video game that got me into video games. 10/10

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 played 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!

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!

Many of the people complaining about development (or the game being generally boring/no-longer fun) are older users that have been playing for years. Stop it, people. You can't expect a game to stay fun forever.

Blockland is a neat game in my opinion. I have played it for a long time myself (bought it around 2009), but I still enjoy playing.

Everyone will hate you, you'll never learn how to properly play anything or do anything, you'll be banned for your attrociously high ID#, and you will overall die from aids. (rip in peace)

But hey, it's $10; I bought this back it was $20.

I'm glad I didn't wait.

You should be that you did.

now fail to find the understanding of why you bought this gg

Serious Recommendation: Make sure you have a friend(s) who own this game or you literally will have to win the lottery on finding someone who is cool enough to accept you as one of their own. You will most likely not get anywhere, otherwise.

Overall, this game isn't bad, just the community sucks mother♥♥♥♥ing ♥♥♥♥ ass ♥♥♥♥er ♥♥♥♥. I'm apart of the reason, apologies, this game does weird stuff to you.

*I probably in the most literal sense have, like, over 3,000 hours logged onto this, but that's all before this was Greenlighted onto Steam. I'm an avid RPer, hmu if you buy this game and you are an avid RPer yourself, I usually play TTRPG, MERP, Dn/d/ gametypes, and spinoffs of either all three or made up completely with bits and pieces of those accumulated into it, as well as others inspired from various game titles, etc... I'll help you out.

If you buy this game, I hope you enjoy it. Good luck, and do not go gently into that goodnight.

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

A great game with endless possibilities. Based on the LEGO system, but so much more than basic building, not only can you build anything you can imagine, but you can also add events like team Deathmatch themed for tons of games like TF2, CoD, and Battlefield, and much more. You can race in a realistic style race or you can set up a Mario Kart style race. Those are just a few examples of the versatility of this game. Also you can make your builds interactive, with lights/emitters to make your builds look great. Blockland is a game anyone who likes to be creative should try.

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.

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.

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

Blockland used to be one of my Favourite games, There were fun map with hidden secrets, The bedroom, The slopes and The kitchen, and you could always get add-ons with RTB (Return to blockland), an amazing site for finding cool mods. However, Things changed.
First of all, Actual maps were removed and only a flat baseplate was left standing. Although there's still structures that you can load up, they're simply no-where near as good as the original maps. This Meant that MP servers were now boring, as most modded gamemodes can't be played. I won't say that the community was ever perfect, it used to be good, but now RTB is abandoned and Blockland servers are basically empty shells of what they used to be. There's also the fact that the blocks that can be used to build are practically LEGO Blocks, which means that even building simple square houses is a tedious process. Overall, Blockland is a true gem lost in time, what used to be a thriving gaming community has become a desolate wasteland and has fallen prey to Money-Hog Developers that can't be bothered to fix their already ruined game.
3/10 would not have One of my favourite games ruined again.
