What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

We believe that we have built a basis on which develop, following the opinions of the community, the most entertaining first-person shooter based on destructible blocks.

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“Blockstorm will remain in Early Access development until we feel the community believes Blockstorm is ready for a full release. We don’t have a concrete deadline in mind, but we will get a better sense as the development of the game progresses.”

How is the full version planned to differ from the Early Access version?

“The fully realized Blockstorm will have 5 new online multiplayer game modes in addition to the actual 3, new weapons, new maps, new characters and much more.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

Character Editor and Map editor are also available.”

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

“At this stage of development no one knows how or when. But the price will raise in the future.”

FINALLY! A decent Minecraft-FPS! What can I say? You can blow all the blocks up in the map and make your own block soldier.
A better shooter than CoD

Early Access Review
A Voxel FPS Shooter game where you can Build you're own custom character and fight people in pretty decently sized maps.

Good things about this game-
1) I have not found any gliches thus far in my time playing
2) The community is pretty good, either people that don't talk or people that like to have a good time
3) Weapons are very equal, shotguns (close range) to the Ak which is medium range
4) I got to make a Starcraft Marine from nothing pretty much toke me over 6 hours it was very fun
5) If you like to create things and not shoot people up, make characters, and create maps for people to play, then host you're own game :)

Like I said this game is pretty fun, The only time its not is when you die alot, which will happen. Everyone has differen't skill sets in this game.

Bad things about this game
1) Its a FPS shooter, like CoD and its like CoD and Minecraft slaped to each other.
2) Building stuff takes along time if you want to make something decent. Voxel by voxel pretty much
3) Communinty like I said is good, but the new 10 year old kids that buy this game spam the chat insaulting people and being immature. -_-
4) RPG's you can not fire on depend you have to wait for like 3 seconds before you can fire.
5) Last but not least, You can fit in 1x1 by 1x2 spaces which is kind of weird considering that my guys is like the scale of a minecraft character and these little voxels are like 1 foot by 1 foot or less hahaha

Other than that this game is pretty fun, hardly any gliches. If you like FPS shooters and don't get mad at them, this game is for you. Building is tedius but is fun, I enjoyed my time creating my characters <---- I make it sound like you need to, but there are deafult characters, and who ever you meet ingame it will put it into a thing to download (in game of course) I hope this helps anyone planing on gettings this, I tryed to give some details about its weak spots and strong points, Enjoy the game :)

What can I say? A game that I can build my own FPS levels in a Minecraft-esque setting and host them online, all for under $5! It's a great deal IMO!!! It has streamlined building next to MC. I highly recommend this game to any Minecraft junkies wanting to use weapons to kill your friends with! Fun FPS game!!! The game runs great on my computer. I had no problems building, finding or joining games! FUN GAME!!!

Here are my system specifications: Apple iMac, i5 Quad-Core Intel processor 3.1GHZ, AMD Radeon HD 6970M with 1GB dedicated video RAM, 4GB system RAM, 1TB hard drive running OS X version 10.6.8, Journaled HFS+ Extended file system.

If you like Guncraft, and would love the gun customization for Skins, then you'll LOVE this game. While it doesn't have any Gun customization, the skins certainly make up for it. It's very linear with what you can do in this, you can make Maps, and Skins, while in Guncraft you can do more, this game certainly is easier for doing all of that customization you might've wanted to do in Guncraft. Now let's just hope they add Gun Customization in this, aswell.

I think for being an early acsess game, Blockstorm is amazing! Even the demo is fun! Creating charecters, maps and I hope later mods.

I really hope this game becomes famous because some servers have REALLY good maps, but nobody is on it :(

Overall.

GET THIS GAME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Early Access Review
Great game for young gamers, here's the reasons:
1. No blood (No trauma)
2. No voice chat (Meaning players IN GAME cannot talk to each other unless private voice chat, no mic spammers, trolls, etc.)
3. You can use your imagination to build anything and anyone. It gives you an editing program to let you make your character and you can also edit/create your own map. Let your imagination run free!
4. Very little lag. I tested this game on a crappy windows 7 computer and it gave me 80+ FPS. There is absolutely no doubt not lag.

This game is worth the money! Thank you GhostShark!

I love that you can create a character BUT it would be better if there's a gun creator. I mean just create a replacement for your default gun like you can create an m16 for an ak47 just replace its own model :D

Early Access Review
Blockstorm is a great game for action, funtime with friends, and much more. On all the games i have played on steam, this game is probably one or if not the BEST game i have played on steam yet. Its full of action and fun things to do with friends or even by yourself. The editor section is AMAZING with the amount of detail and things you can do with this game whether it be on the maps u can create and play or whether it be the characters you create. If i had to add one thing to this game it would be in a future update where the creators of the game could add a Search and Destroy type based gamemode and also more of an objective when playing online like Leveling up and presiging would DEFINATLLY bring this game to the fullest it could be because by adding levels would help make this game become even more AMAZING then it already is

9.75/10 GREAT GAME

Blockstorm is a strangely fun game. Even without the content that will come with the polished final game, it's something that I find myself coming back to over and over again. The maps are balanced and varied, and as are the weapons and explosives.
Most games try to be too much, and then they dissapoint. This game, however, is different: I couldn't possibly give this game a bad review because it does what it says on the tin and it's fun. This won't be game of the year, nor will it ever be as polished as a triple a fps, but it's a pretty good game.
Why doesn't steam have more games like this?

Early Access Review
This is definately a fantastic game. Would recommend playing the demo first as it takes some getting used to and you might not enjoy it but it has something for most people. Its a game with ots of potential that the devs are constantly updating and has a relatively wide player base.

Pros:
- Range of weapons to choose from
- Option to kick teamkillers through vote
- Range of gamemodes
- Can be strategic, not just reflex game (eg. building tunnels, bases, using claymores etc.)

Cons:
- Random Server Banning
- Not many servers hosting capture the flag gamemode

This game is definately worth buying. It would be nice if a game mode was added in that was like assault, but each team had a target to defend and attack, so it became almost like an actual battle.
Enjoy.
