“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.”
8 / 10 – Android Rundown

Pre-Release Review
Out of all bans I got from the Steam community, 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.

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 just bought the game and for $2 its not too bad of a price but i still havent figured out to get the "curency" in the game besides finishing achievments and once in a while finding them while gathering stuff, however you need to spend the diamands to get more inventory space (and alot at that it was 250 for the first 4 slots then 1500 for the next 4 slots and now it costs 2500 for teh last 4) and you only start out with 1500. It takes 5 min to make 1 iron ingnot but you can speed up the time with 3 diamonds, compared to minecraft this is a complete joke of a game, however there are dragons you can eventually ride, and you do quests as well but it is very slow going, i couldnt even focus for more then a couple hours at a time. i never even made it past the tutorial i got too bored. when it comes to crafting there is a ton of stuff to craft but for instance a crafting table you can only place it and re-pick it up like 2 times b4 it is gone and you have to make a new one. It is a type of game where if you dont mind a slow game that takes a bit to do everything then you would enjoy it, me im the type who wants to build alot faster and dont want to wait 5 min for one iron ingnot, who knows how much longer it would be for gold or whatever else there is. never tried creative mode however that could be better but all in all the price is ok for the game but it is much less fun to actually play

Oh, this game.
This game used to be on mobile and I loved it, until they added the ♥♥♥♥ING DIAMONDS.
All I can say is: I'm done. Don't waste your money on this game.
It'll be expected if you ban me you "developers"
