Why Early Access?

Will the game be priced differently during and after Early Access?

Early Access Review
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!

Early Access Review
EDIT: 30APR2015

I am honestly too lazy to write reviews, but this game actually deserves some attention and a larger population.

To begin, I am not a fan of minecraft or any blocky looking games. However, the graphics do not affect the gaming experience whatsoever. Blockstorm feels like a proper FPS game, and the map destruction, and ability to build structures/barriers using blocks provided to all players, result in often unique gameplay every time.

The guns, although a small number, have their own feel and characteristics. Unlike other FPS', Blockstorm is successful at delivering a different combat experience with each weapon. The sniping mechanics were a little difficult to master, but the skill necessary to one-shot kill your enemies is cleverly nerfed with the scope sway.

The maps and game modes seem very appropriate for the price tag, and the map/character editor give you an even bigger bang for your buck.

The player mobility is affected by gear type and weight. This feature encourages the player to think about the weapons and gadgets to carry to be effective in the current combat situation, or to match their playing style.

Blockstorm does have its issues. One of those is the spawn system; the enemy team can overpower your team and spawn kill quite easily. There is a few seconds of invincibility right after spawning, but a skilled spawn killer can ruin your game regardless of this feature.

Overall the game is worth every penny, and a must have indie FPS.

NEW INFO

After giving it some thought I forgot to mention another major issue the game has, and I feel obligated to share this information to avoid encouraging people to make a purchase without this knowledge.

The game, at its current state, does not have a large player population. It can be difficult to get a full server, but most of the time when I have played I actually found one or two servers running with enough players. I do not believe this is an issue with the game itself, but with the lack of popularity. As previously mentioned, the game deserves a larger population.

A VERY fun game. It's like Counter-Strike and Minecraft had a baby (or rather, it's like Ace of Spades when it was still good). You can make your own skin literally block by block (and the skins in this game are VERY detailed because of it), you can even edit the turret and zombie skins (yes, there are zombies in the game!) You can even customize your weapons so they look whatever you want them to look like (though there are some minor restrictions in that field, it's still cool). To top it off, it even has a MAP EDITOR, so you can make whatever kind of map you want, build your own prefabs (structures that you can later use as assets for other maps or share), and pick what modes and weapons you want on the map! You could have snipers only, make it run for Team Deathmatch or CTF, etc.

All in all, this game will never leave you bored of creativity, and it's a really solid game (aside from some minor bugs, but again, MINOR bugs). I fully recommend this game to anyone who wants a nice Minecraft-style shooter with good weapons balance, and a wide variety of creative tools at your disposal. (And if you are wanting to scratch that itch that Ace of Spades used to give you before Jagex screwed it up, this is the game you should get).

I remember years ago I used various Gun Mods in Minecraft... Well, this is the definitive version of it.
Also I love customization. I had fun playing Robocraft and I love FPS games. Good thing I stop playing after for a while since this game has few people in the servers...Yet. This could be easily consume another day of my life.
I will probably this game again if I have enough free-time. Nevertheless, It's a good game concept done right.

Early Access Review
A good mix up of Minecraft and First Person Shooter. Plenty of gamemodes to choose (DM, TDM, CTF, Castle Wars, Hunted, Assault) that mostly require you to shoot and kill enemies, tho some like CTF or CW require you to build defenses or be smart and sneak around capturing the flag or "looting" the chests.

Some primary weps (AK-47, Rifle, Sniper Rifle, LMG, Shotgun) and secondary weps (Uzi, Handgun, short barreled shotgun) and the explosives (RPG, Grenades, ClayMore) + a shovel, knife and a stack of 100blocks to use, amongst other things i have forgotten. These guns feel realistic when shooting against enemies, tho the sniper rifle has a lot of sway and most of the weapons haven't got a lot of recoil.

There is a lot of character models to choose from + character and map editing.

I don't have anything to say about the community other that there are some well mannered, for the most part they are quit in in-game matches.

There is a rank (?) system that i have yet to figure out how it works.

There migth be some bad things like the grenade throwing (tho it is only my opinion) or some map limits they had put up :/

Overall, a nice experience for free, can get ya hooked up for a lot of hours, and i encourage you to buy it ;).

Change the sniper scoping, get rid of the accelerate, it makes it bloody impossible to play sniper accurately.

Fine tune the kinks, and this game, I guarantee you, will skyrocket.

This game is amazing and looks very promising and yes im going to buy me and my friend a copy
--Pros
Weapon editor
Character editor
NPC editor
Stage editor
Big maps
Movement speed varied by weight system
And ALOT more just cant think of them all

--Cons
Weapon weight system
Cant change/select aim for guns

--Suggested improvements that should be added
Depending on how many blocks there is on a gun/item the weight changes for that gun/item
Add sniper laser with toggle
Add party system so playing with friends is easy

--Reasons to play this game
This game has its own very unique aproach and no you can't really compare this to Ace Of Spades
because im going to be honest here i'm more attached to this games then i ever was attached to AOS and sometime
i don't understand why i bought AOS.

--Things i hope the developers dont do
add OP level in-game purchase items/ranks
change physics and gun system
set a limit on how much gun/player skins we can have(that would really put me down also if they made you pay for extra slots)

Overall out of 100 this game gets 97.57

Yep i now have bought myself a copy :P

Early Access Review
thank you indigala for such a nice next-gen gaming experience.
Game ran smoothly at 8 fps with medium resolution and low settings with my intel intergrated gpu (because my old video card = dead, no sarcasm intended.) and I was suprised how well optimized game was. (well, it's not a heavy graphic game released by AAA publishers like u-buysoft and such.) So far, being able to customize and choosing your own arsenal was the keypoint during the gameplay and it was fun enough for an early access game.

you might say, there are other games like ace of spade,guncraft and blah blah but 10 times better. (but seriously who cares, it is still in early access and might be better on full release), you get workshop support that gives you guns,characters and maps or make your own stuff. overall it's nice game to try out/buy and play it whenever you are bored. 9/10

If you are familiar with the Minecraft game, and with Call of Duty games, this is their baby.
The game is fun I tried it out for some time, definetly worth giving a try.
There is enough customization built into the game by now as its only early stages of the game but its coming together and it is great, you have a variety of weapons and character models you can choose plus you can build and contruct too.
It's very easy to make a sniper nest anywhere you want but the blocks get easly broken if shot at/naded/dug up/all of the three together.
I recommend this game to anyone who has some time on their hands as its more of a grindish game, its not very fast paced game but its still made the way to "good" in my opinion.
