“If you’re entirely new to block building games, Block Story is loads of fun and full of ingenious gameplay.”
4.4 / 5.0 – AndroidTapp

“Overall, I found Block Story to be a joy to play, not to mention a highly polished product. One of the complaints I had with Minecraft is that it didn’t include any sort of in-depth RPG element. Block Story helped to bridge this gap and provide hours of entertainment in both the realm of building and character progression.”
9 / 10 – Dad's Gaming Addiction

“Block Story is a a fun adventure that does very well to create a virtual terrain that begs to be discovered. It is in parts charming, at others scary, and the dichotomy is part of its charm.”

Pre-Release Review
Posted: January 4
Out of all bans I got from the Steam community, almost all have been caused by DMCA claims made by Mindblocks/the developers of Block Story. It is to be noted that if you even dare saying that Block Story is a bad game on the forums you will be permanently banned even if you took 1 hour making a huge wall of text carefully explaining why the game is bad.(in a best-case-scenario your thread will be deleted if they were calm at the moment)

Excluding the steam's community/developers that is/are as toxic as Chernobyl and as restrictive as North Korea or Russia, Block Story is just a game that was made when Minecraft PE didn't existed on Android/iPhone, it's just Minecraft but with less voxel and more "RPG", and it's what makes it boring to play.

TL;DR : Toxic developers + huge differences between android/iphone/pc version + Game made for "smartphones" ported to personal computers(PC) = bad game.

Recommended : NOT

Block Story is survival craft voxel game.

[positive side]

+RPG system with many skills to improve
+ All creatures seem tamable (friendly, neutral & hostile)
+ You can travel between generated worlds (infinite ressources)
+ Tp system thru beds and tools in same world
+ Tutorial from NPC missions
+ Dragon system
+ Respec (with diamonds)
+ You can earn diamonds slowly in-game (microtransaction)
+ Achievements in-game & Steam

[negative side]

- Short inventory, especially when you need to carry many tools
- Fighting too close friendly NPC turn them agressive against you
- Blocking NPC especialy in tiny corridor or when they stand near doors
- Generated worlds with huge caves that require flying to explore (hard at game begining)
- Game too easy & fast with microtransaction based on diamonds
- Forging bars & repairing items require too many time like stupid MMO to force you to spend diamonds to short delay (no need that ♥♥♥♥ in solo game paid at full price, for example about 40 mn to repair 1 jewel with hammer)
- You seem Tp verticaly and if you meet something solid you stay at higher solid block above bed
- NPC & creature can't stay at floor where spawmer is, "they shrink like they are in water", on floor deeper (very bad management from solid block)
- No multiplayer for fun

[- negative from version before beta]
- no update since more than 1 year for version < beta
- dev delete all thread on forum that report no update or ask for more content because console version is updated

For 2.99 USD or less you can buy it but i don't recommend it.
I really don't accept you can craft with no delay but you need time to forge bars and repair stuff. These delays ruin game and are only implemented to force you to spend diamonds to short time required. If Dev need more money, he just have to raise purchase price instead of poluate game with microtransactions with diamonds to force you to spend it.

You can play this free to play with cosmetic microtransactions only like Path of Exile :

instead of Block Story.

I originally bought this game while it was still in Early Access, long before it went to the pay model it adopted on release. And to be honest, I'd already uninstalled it before release because it was already a fairly tedious game not improved by the odd loading limitations of the world chunks. I can't say I was enthused when I heard about the new pay model, but as the devs claimed the game was fully playable without, I thought I'd give it a fair chance.

One thing I will give them: the world looks much better now that it's loading larger chunks, or else loading them faster. And the topography of the world section I've been playing in is much more realistic, whereas it used to just climb off into Escheresque directions at random. Water physics is still confusing, where you think you're going to float, and sometimes you do, and sometimes you end up at the bottom of a ravine. The 'village' you start in is rather charmingly constructed, at least. And speaking of charming, the baby dragon is a nice touch.

As to whether the game is playable without pouring cash into it...well, that depends. Do you have a high threshold for tedium? Because this has not changed. To be fair, it hasn't changed one single bit--as far as I can tell, they haven't slowed down any of the processes from what I remember. It's just that it's exactly as bad as I remember. Your tools last practically no time at all, whether they're constructed of stone or iron. The higher the tier, the faster it goes, but pretty soon you feel like you're spending all your time mining just to replace your tools so you can mine some more to replace your tools. The dragon is cute and quite useful in the outset, but I already feel like I'm going to be spending all the time I'm not mining trying to keep it fed. And in order to feed it, I could keep giving it apples, at least until I run out locally...or I could give it meat from animals I have to run down to kill, while they're healing obscenely fast, so that I always need to hit them one more time than I should, wearing out my weapon quicker, which I'll have to--you guessed it--mine to replace my tools and restock my coal and build more furnaces to smelt a single bar of iron over four minutes to replace the weapon so I can keep my baby dragon from starving. Or I could throw money at the problem. (The ability to throw money at the problem is literally the only time improvement I'm seeing here from pre-release.)

Yes, diamonds have been dropping in-game, but not fast enough that I feel like I can grind my way out of this. On the whole, the game is just slow. Painfully slow. And I'm literally achievement-hunting a game where I'm waiting for potted plants to grow, but at least I can leave that up and switch to another window. Considering that we're supposedly able to take or leave the new pay system, and considering that by choosing to leave it, this is almost exactly the same game I've been playing all along, I'm going to have to say that the same flaws that made me uninstall it the first time around are still present and have resulted in a game that's more of a slog than a grind. With all the other sandbox games in my library (and with all the new ones coming out), I just can't see wasting any more time with this one.

Lets pretend for a moment that you have absolutley no idea what this game is, and the past of this game on Steam (with the developers snapping at the community and refusing to update the game on EA and then just dump it as a complete game.) With all of that you'd think that ths is like the StarForge fiasco on a smaller scale. But lets forget that, and instead focus on how lacking, dull, and unfinshed this game feels.

The game runs surprisingly well. On my old 2010 Notebook I can get an adverage of 50-60 FPS which is actually great! On my full computer (What I am typing this review with) it gives me about 300-400 FPS while not noticable by the human eye (no joke intended) it still is surprisingly well optimized given what this game is.

The World:
For an open-world Sandbox game the world feels surprisingly dead and static. For something that most other sandbox games do excellently (Minecraft and Creativerse most specifically) is the idea that once you expand and build and upgrade your character and world it will not only make you feel, well, accomplished but also it would feel like it was changing, like YOU were changing it. Here however the world just feels dead but surprisingly cluttered. There are randomly generated building and tons of NPCs but they have no reason, or just feel like they aren't adding anything. Top that with Water physics that don't even move (Which is a sing for Sandbox Survival games like this) and the lack of leaf decay makes the world feel astonishingly static, as if nothing will change, and for the most part nothing does. Although for what it is worth, the world generation looks very nice with long plains and deserts with massive forests spread around and they are almost fun to explore. (almost) I guess I should also mention the endless all that the world presents, where it will generate endlessly up and endlessly down. While this sounds awesome on paper, it truley is just that, awesome on paper, it is impossible for the idea of an unlimited cave system and unlimited sky lands to be fun and feel complete exploring. If there is no end then the player feels like it made no progress, and with no feeling of progress leaves me to turn off the game. Boss monster spawn without reasons and vanish without reason. There is no ecosystem feeling here. The random building are floating above nothing and some features (like weather) have no effect and just look and feel like they were added just to appease fans of realistic enviroments. The world, from a distance, looks nice with a great lighting engine to boot. But, get too close and it's true ugly head revils itself. The textures are detailed and fit nicley for the most part (Some don't blend well as if their art style was completley differnt.

The Combat:
It is awful. Now, Minecraft's combat (Block Story's main competator) is surprisingly good for what it is trying to do, and as of 1.9 is actually pretty great. Block Story's combat however is an obveous tide from it's ancient mobile days. It truley does feel unsatisfying and looks performs more like your weekly Clash of Clans rip-off than anything. You click once and then you hit it if your close or not, the hitboxes make it so as long as you are somewhere near it then it will register which is very poor feeling. It truly is hard to put into words on how bad the combat feels. You tap, and it does it, it just feels awful. If there is anything good to say, you can spend your upgrade points on damage upgrades so you don't have to fight at all.

Mobile Holdovers:
This was once a mobile game. Which wouldn't be a problem if the game acted like a compotent 2.99 dollar game. There are microtransactions everywhere, sure you can earn the gems in game (like most other Microtrasnaction heavy games that are FREE on MOBILE) but it surley will take you a while to get EVEN ONE. Over 2 hours of gameplay and I had yet to get one gem, sure it may be random, however it shouldn't even be in a game that we payed 2.99 (which isn't as bad but still) for. Here is a kicker. The Microtransactions take center stage when you open the inventory and start to smelt items. Each item, (Iron Ore) which is fastest item to my knowledge to smelt, how long does it take without Microtransactions? 5 minutes. Yes Creativerse does have timers, however they don't use Microtransactions making it fair for all players. Additionally of the total 25 slots in the inventory to store stuff you get a mere 10 without paying 275 gems for an additonal 5 rows. which basically means that to unlock your entire inventory you need about 6.70 to do so which is rediculous considering that is over 2 times over the price people payed for the game.

It comes out of nowhere and constantly plays without reason and sounds awful. There are some interesting pieces of music here but the instrumentation and mixing is so awful (and the really bad midi soundfont they used) which makes it sound cheap and really ear grating after only an hour of playing.

Block Story is sadly still very unfinished in it's "finished" state and with the developers being quiet since the release [Except for a Christmas update a week late. But still an update nontheless got to give em positive moral points for that] and other people slowly realizing the problems I wouldn't be surprised if this game is forgotten with time. And with all of the problems that I have encountered it would probaly be for the better if this were to happen. There are some good things, but they are overshadowed by the microtransactons, poor combat, dead world, and ear grating music. Don't get me wrong, I REALLY tried hard to like this game. I really tried. But, it just got wrose, wrose, and even more empty feeling and heartless and basically pasionless as it went on.

I'm going to have to give this game a 'not recommended.' It has a ton of potential, and as is, could be fun, but it appears to be DOA on the PC.

No updates in 8 months for an Early Access game is not acceptable, especially considering the numerous promises from the Devs (June! er.. July! Oct... I mean Dec!... ... ... <crickets>)

Get Hexxit mod for Minecraft instead. Except some slightly better graphics there is nothing more to find here.
Except for some strange crafting. You craft stacks of pickaxes cause you need one pickaxe for each block, just like swords. Which are useless btw, cause the best sword deals 40dps (damage per sword ^^) and a pig got 400hp. Ofc you could lvl up by digging ore for hours to get to lvl 40 and set you 40 earned skillpoints all into fighting so you deal 80dps...still sucks. The balancing so so far away from highly polished that it hurts.
And this "terrain that begs to be discovered", well no! Looks all kind alike and quite lifeless except for this clone army of 3 different npcs that will give you "oh hello, kill 20 bad mobs. Well thanks, now kill 20 other bad mobs" quests.
Did I mention "Oh look at my 200h of work I got a Castle where I can sit on my Throne all by myself cause its a singleplayergame, but well done I can take a fu*** picture in the menu and post it on facebook" yeah wtf?! go to hell -.-
I dont know, there is still no real new feature that would be worth the price.

YAY, THIS IS MY 50TH REVIEW! This was the game that was voted for the most on my group page (you guys must really hate me.) It's a shame that THIS is the game that is my 50th review, I guess the people that read them must love to see me torture myself.

In case anyone didn't figure it out from the trailer, Block Story is a rip off of Minecraft yet I can see that the dev tried to make something unique, but obviously fell flat on his face. Most people are fooled by the reviews from official critics, mainly because they reviewed the mobile version of the game. Why did he not include reviews for the PC version you might ask? Because the PC version is terrible I also don't see the whole appeal of the mobile version either.

So, what is Block Story? Block Story is basically MineCraft but doesn't necessarily focus on the survival element of MineCraft and brings more attention to the exploration element and adds in some RPG elements to it, which I have to admit, is quite a good idea but we still haven't gotten a game that does this well and Block Story doesn't necessarily fill that hole.

The gameplay is basically imagine MineCraft and take out the survival element, makethe combat surprisingly worse than MineCraft and then shoehorn in these boring, repetitive fetch quests in the place of actual quests. I said, each time when I was accepting a quest, I said "fetch quest!" and every time, I was right. Although it gives different ways in which these fetch quests are given out, but thats basically the same way of me being given multiple ways to kill myself, should I be hung,drawn and quartered? Should I be slowly diced up?Or should I be left to starve to death? The NPCs will either ask you to do one of 3 things:

1) Fetch this
2) Fetch this, so we can make something with it
3) Kill this, get this from their corpse, fetch it back

That's seriously the majority of the game, add in some differentiation.

The main issue I have with this game is that it's so boring and monotinous. With it's repetitive and stale fetch quests, and therefor, taking out 1 of it's 2 elements, there isn't much left Block Stroy has that made it stand out in the first place.

My 2nd issues is the actual game itself, to be specific, it's a PC game, that was ported from mobile devices. How was the transition? Horrible. The combat, I can tell was suitable for mobile where you hold down on what you want to attack on but on the PC, that type of combat feels floaty and awkward. There is also microtransactions to top on that, oh great. 3/5 of your inventory is locked off, how do you unlock the inventory? Get gems and use them to unlock more of your inventory, how do you get the gems? 3 ways: 1) You get lucky and one will fall out of a tree or an enemy will drop one 2) There are daily rewards which give you around 10 gems on the first day and doubles each time and stops on the 5th day and resets what yu're given 3) You pay actual real money to get a sh*t ton of them. You know that you're in for a stellar time when over half of your inventory is locked off behind a pay wall.

Another thing that's problematic in the porting is that there is screen tearing every minute. One minute won't go by without a piece of screen tearing, which I assume was in the mobile version so that it could give the device time to load the world,but the PC is a MUCH more powerful system than a mobile device and can load areas easily.

The graphics are terrible as well. I can accept that if you're wanting to be a clone of MineCraft, you want your world to look like MineCraft, but that makes everything else, that you've implemented in yourselves look awkward and don't look like they belong in that world, in fact all of the characters that are in this game look like they came from completely different things. The wizard looks like he was made in an engine fit for the PS2, the sheep looks like they were made in an early version of unity and the warriors look like they came from World of Warcraft.

I was thinking that the one redeeming grace of this game would be that it might have multiplayer but I found out there was none. I'm actually amazed at this. It would have made the game better if it had multiplayer because that would mean that it might be more fun if you were with a buddy when you were going out, setting out which quests you would each do but you decide against it?

I find very little to like about this game, aside from the decent exploration parts to the game as there is a lot to explore in this game, there's little to like about this game, save your money.

+ Good exploration elements

- Screen tearing
- NPCs don't fit in
- Micro transactions
- Terrible combat
- Boring gameplay
- Repetitive quests

Final verdict: 3/10

It's like someone tried to make Minecraft and thought "I could do it better", then sat back, drank 5 bottles of whisky straight and mashed their face into the code.

The UI's gwad awful, have to click several times to find that 'right spot' to pull an item from one box to another.
The movement is... meh, walking in glue constantly? Water likes to float, because... well... **** gravity right. Durability is 1 tool per block, terrain is littered with 'spawning' blocks, the quest system is awkward, the performance isn't too brilliant and the graphics are so... ~puke~ nothing blends in well or matches up at all.

Save your dosh, a zillion other games out there similar to this. Or go back to basics and install some mods on MC, which appear far more developed than this 'thing'.

Has microtransactions. It was playable as they were nice and gave me some of the premium currency for reviewing.
Would not reccomend sadly, at least not until they remove the microtransactions.
I would reccomend getting it in it's current state- however upcoming updates(already open to beta testing) are adding in what i said above.
