Early Access Review
After Ace of Spades and Guncraft I was really wary of "Minecraft with Guns" type games, but this actually does it right. The characters have human proportions and are fully customizable, the gunplay feels similar to counter strike in terms of quality (recoil, depth of field, accuracy, damage), and the maps are fun, with tunnels being dug and buildings being demolished as the rounds progress. Needs more players!!

Early Access Review
Blockstorm is a early access Voxel FPS game from Indie Gala.

If I was going to compare it with other games...
It has most similarities with Ace Of Spades and other voxel games,
but gives me the feel of Counter Strike... except for the compeditiveness.

It's a really fun game to play with friends. I bought it today and have had a fun 3hrs on it until now.
Edit: Almost up in 110hrs now, loving it. Even if you got no friends who owns the game, it's loads of fun.

There's different weapons you can choose, every weapon has it's weight, the weight of the guns you use effect your walking speed.

The mechanics is much better than any other voxel FPS I've tried.
Weapons are balanced (no weapon in need of nerf or too nerfed)

Comes with map maker and character creator.

The music in game is also very enjoyable.
Ofc there is bugs, but thats what you get from Early Access.
Edit: Bugs is being fixed shortly after you make devs aware of them.
(Devs are very friendly and helpful & listen to what the community wants)
Already lots of beatiful and fun community maps, as well as characters.

Early Access Review
Blockstorm is a fun destructible, and actually kind of good looking (compared to others) with good animations, It's voxel based so everything is destructible, and the game has a really deep characters customization, which you can make a really unique character of your own if your good at it, and level editor, good servers (not sure if dedicated). overall it's a good game that's smooth, nice looking, and fun to shoot and weapons that feel kinda nice. One thing i would like to see is music while in a match, feels like a dead zone without some music.

Also if you're wondering if this is another voxel shooter out to grab your money, i don't think it isn't, in fact will go ahead and say it's the best one out there in terms of quality and creativity.

Early Access Review
At first, you may think: well, this is just another Minecraft clone with guns, or even an Ace of Spades/Guncraft spin-off. In fact, it's something completely different, and I'm not talking only about the content it brings.

Blockstorm is a user content-driven multiplayer voxel shooter, with classic shooting mechanics, weapons, traps, explosives, tactical demolition and simple block physics. Pretty much any pattern you find in a First Person Shooter you'll also find here, what makes it distinct as a shooter, is the possibility to build and destroy, using your spade, explosives or bullets. And here you build for real, no pre-made constructs, just your creativity. Blockstorm is also a controlled shooter rather than an arcade/fast paced shooting hell: you can stop and think of your strategies instead of going rambo all the time. Destruction is also a powerful tactical weapon here: believe me, you won't like to be below a building about to collapse.

Content creation is also a plus: not only a powerful, fast and intuitive map editor lets you create and instantly share your maps with the community, but it will also let you design your own self in the game in character editor, with the same sharing ease. Content may be shared by files or just playing with someone who has the content. (There are some ideas to implement a weapon editor as well.)

But here is where Blockstorm gets the upper hand: a solid, friendly and oriented community. Devs and players stay every moment in touch, and the devs really listen to what players have to say. There have been two updates so far, which were results of suggestions and discussions, and as for the short period of time the game is online, it is improving on a regular basis. It shows great potential for the future, and I believe it will certainly be the best of its genre.

If you enjoy the classic voxel logic, customizing or making your own stuff, and First Person Shooters, give it a try, It's worth every penny.
