100% NOT ACE OF SPADES :P

Yeah i have a love for these FPS Minecraft looking games.I have played Ace of Spades and Murder Miners and so on and so on.I love this one a lot the Editors make it real easy to make and edit anything in the game. And i love that it has Workshop support also! So sharing your edited items and maps and characters is as easy as pie. The game play is well done and fun also.I also read they will be adding vehicles also and can be edited just like all else in the game!!

i cant wait to sink more time in this one and see what else they add to the game and what the community adds also :) So if you like any of the games i mentioned , get this game ASAP !! And maybe ill see ya around the BLOCK!!! :P

When I was younger, the original Ace of Spades (non-steam version) was one of my favorite games to play. Blockstorm is a game that I feel can rightfully be considered the sequel of the original Build and Shoot. The workshop integration and editor capabilities allow for some interesting skins and player models to be used, while the ability to manipulate the terrain and map allows for various engagements. As for the weapons, they're all pretty self-explanatory, each with their own pros and cons.

Overall, this game is great. If you have the spare change to pick it up, I'd advise you do so.

Forget Ace of Spades and Block n Load, this game has so much more to it, it has more than just workshop maps, but MPCs, weapons, tools and characters. the blocks are very well textured and the gameplay is a lot smoother and less laggy and buggy. I would strongly recomend buying this game and supporting the development and hope for future updates. Although the editors are a bit difficult to use, it is so worth it to run around with that infinity blade, or that star wars blaster riffle while as bonnie or an ANZAC. But you don't even have to make item skins, there is already plenty of workshop support and plenty of stuff.

Hope to see you in a game soon! :)

This review is outdated! I may change it at some point.

This review is posted on the 16th of december, 2014. Last edited on the 18th of december, 2014.

Because I'm lazy and don't want to make an endless looking tome, I'm just going to structurally give you the pros and cons with sometimes a small explanation.

Pros
✓ A regular amount of guns and other weapons for a, more or less, balanced gameplay (More guns is always better).
✓ The overall gameplay isn't quite boring, there is plenty of action, unless you're playing on a map only available to paid players, because these maps are usually quite big (I'll talk more about this in the Cons section).
✓ Plenty of maps to play on (This also has a negative side).
✓ 4 different game modes (This also has a negative side).
✓ The possibility to create your own characters and maps is a huge plus. Both editors are (in my opinion) very easy to use and have lots of features to work with.
✓ Steam Workshop.
✓ Achievements and statistics.
✓ ... (More will follow)

Cons
✖ Low amount of paid (non-demo) players.
✖ Not being able to play on different maps and gamemodes than the one provided for demo users.
✖ Too many demo users. This is a huge downside for paid players. Demo users can only play on certain demo servers, but these servers are also available for paid players. Because of the low amount of paid players and the high amount of demo players and the fact that demo players can only play on a couple of maps and on 2 out of the 4 gamemodes, what means that the demo servers only provide those maps and just 2 gamemodes, means you'll almost never play on other maps and different gamemodes as a paid player and because of that will not get a full view of the game.
✖ Some maps available for paid players are just too big to play on. You'll hardly get a full lobby when hosting a map that isn't available for demo users, so with a lower amount of players, certain maps are just too big.
✖ People who try to ruin the experience for other players by griefing, with for example, C4, are frequent.
✖ ... (More will follow)

Mixed
✓/✖ This game has a lot to offer for early access. But when buying the game for the scandalous price of 11,99€, the developers don't tell you, you get a game with broken gameplay. The gameplay may not always be boring and have a high amount of action, but that doesn't mean you can properly play. The developers seem to not have learnt anything out of other games: griefing, spawn killing/destroying, panic knifing, too big maps, using a demo, not to introduce new players to the game, but by letting them dominate it, etc.

Is what you get really worth the full price? In my opinion, absolutely not. There are plenty of other games that provide way more for the same or even a lower price than this game.

And yet I recommend it... All the opinions I have brings me on the edge of good and bad.

5.5/10.

Well well well. This game in short is Ace of Spades revived with a big focus on gameplay along the lines of Counter Strike 1.6 and Half Life 1 Multiplayer. It really is great fun and the graphics kind of give it a charm that makes it feel like it comes straight out of 1998 or something. The block based levels are great, giving you tons of ways to play a match for example literally pumping a 100 bullet mag into a wall just so other people don't have the cover of said wall anymore. Of course you can also place blocks yourself, building small walls to crouch behind when you reload.

Basicly if you like Counter Strike-ish games with a little twist this sure is a game to pick up, especially now when its on sale.

And the editor where you can make maps, skins for your weapons and for your characters is amazing. Easy to use for everyone and so many options to be creative with. I bet this is where most people will spend their time.

So many 'block' styled games have come out on steam. Some have been bad, and some have been meh. THIS game is very well done! I recieved a coupon for it so I thought, meh why not. I had a really fun time! Suprisingly, I haven't seen any chat saying "lel 1v1 me ♥♥♥ ill qwickscope ur cat 420 yolo" yet. One con is that NOT ENOUGH PEOPLE PLAY THIS GAME! I've had a struggle to get into a populated game! I feel that this would be really fun with alot of people or with your friends at a LAN party, etc. I litterally rate this game 10/10, I can see no major faults on the developers part, no in game microtransactions, and great editing assets! This game is a gem in it's genre!

This game is pretty fun!

Imagine Ace of Spades, except actually improved upon and not turned into a Call of Duty-like game. It features a variety of weapons and interesting mechanics. I think one of the big sellers of the game is its custom weapon and playerskin makers, as well as map making system. The combat is fairly good, though it has room for improvement. I found that matches tend to be rather... Quiet. It felt somewhat isolated when playing with other players. Hopefully the community grows to circumvent this issue.
The loadout system is very interesting. There's a weight (In KG) system that dictates how fast you move. If it's 6 KG, you move pretty fast. If you weigh 10 KG, you'll be slower.
There's weapons like a rifle, a sniper rifle, an assault rifle, an SMG, a shotgun, and a heavy machine gun. They all tend to synergize well with a certain side-arm. Yes, there's more than just your pistol. You're given the choice between choosing a regular pistol, uzi, and a small shotgun with two shells loaded in. Ontop of that, you can also pick your grenade type. It can be a frag grenade, a C4 that can be detonated on command, a claymore that detonates when a player touches its laser, or a freakin' RPG... With only one rocket.
You can also use a block placing tool and a shovel to manipulate the terrain.

A few issues I have encountered is that the game does NOT autosave your custom skins, maps, characters, etc. This means if you accidentally quit, it's gone. Yes, it happened to me when I was least expecting it. Another issue that I feel like only I get annoyed by is making weapon skins. Whenever you make a weapon skin, there's certain blocks that cannot be broken. This is so that you don't make an SMG look like a shotgun. I tend to get a little annoyed with it, but I can understand why it's there. I would like if there was some system that lets you delete those blocks, but on the offset that only you can see the skin. The only other issue is that the community is small. Hopefully by the end of the two week free-to-play event, the community would had grown by then.

Other than that, it's pretty good. Get it if you liked the original Ace of Spades. Cheers for monthly updates!

There is something really special about these block games, cant put my finger on it. I just enjoy them ALOT.. :)

Lets start with the good stuff:
Creating maps with the editor is easy and the editor feels powerfull in the right hands. Multiplayer online is super fun. You can create and share / play with your own created characters.

There is no veichles in this game and i dont really miss them either. Why? The maps created are more like close combat or sniper variations aka old COD UO. The difference is ofcourse the gfx style and that you can destroy almost everything on the maps so never expect to be able to hide for to long. :)

The game is created with the community in mind so start creating some cool or funny maps to share. Fun fun fun...

I would recommend that you buy a 4 pack and share with your friends for some fun gaming. And lets help this community to grow, the game really deserves it.

And sadly a tiny tumbs down:
The characters can feel a bit floaty sometimes. Just jump and you will understand. Also a sprint button for quick getaway would be most welcome. The run speed used in current game can be walk speed and run could be done in bursts with energy bar.

((Please note the game is still in early process so this can change))

And yes the score:
GFx 9-10 (Usefull comparisons Minecraft, Guncraft, Murder Miners, Blockland)
Sfx 7-10 (its okay and fits the game)
Music 6-10 (Not much to say, but it fits where it is)
Gameplay 9-10 (SuperEasy creating maps and fun)

I will gladly recommend this game because its super fun online. And who does not like blowing stuff to bits or creating your own maps to play with your friends. (( Get it on 25-50% SALE ))

The community is not large but this is where we can improve. BUY and PLAY :)
