About This Game

Voxel Blast is a game where you control a spaceship traveling across complex 3D environments to fight enemies in cages set to trap them with you. Navigate as fast as you can through the level to reach the beacons or risk facing squads of enemies already waiting for you; then use your weapons and evasive maneuvers to take them down in bright colorful explosions.

An electric neon, colorful yet sparse look is the inspiration for all the elements in the game; the setting, the player ships, enemies, visual effects and music take notes from simple vector art and electronic music.

Voxel Blast was created as a love letter to 3D dogfighting games and also space shooters, in an attempt to find a common ground between those two kinds of games. In Voxel Blast you can choose one of three ships with different weapons, yet all of them very focused in providing a satisfying dog-fighting style and movement.

The game has three modes to learn and test the skills necessary for the player to succeed: the Challenge mode, the Survival mode and the Arcade. The Challenge mode consist in a series of courses marked trough navigation beacons with limited time to reach them; this mode teaches the player the necessary skills to fly and navigate the spaceships in a safer environment that the arcade with lower stakes overall, but with a focus on high speed precise flying. The Survival mode presents the player with an arena much like the ones in the Arcade mode, but in a three-lives endless score-attack combat with a constant flow of a varied mix of enemies; in the survival mode the player can see all the enemies he might find in the Arcade and develop ways to fight them, including the interactions between different compositions of enemies. The Arcade mode combines the combat and navigation in stages comprised of sets of flying sections and fighting gauntlets, where the number of destroyed enemies and the time taken to complete count towards the final score.

The game features gamepad support for analog direct input and some flightsticks, but it has been designed to be played with a mouse and keyboard using a system that tries to reproduce the nuance of using a stick to control the roll and pitch of the spaceship. This makes the control of the ship one of the main skills to master in the game, along with the speed control, positional engagement of enemies and management of special projectiles.

So after several hours of playing abit of VB! I feel its time to review it.

My initial thoughts was this game is going to be OK, but i was actually quite impressed once i got in the swing of things.

It doesnt have spectacular graphics but it does have a modern retro feel to it if that makes sense, which is good! its straight forward and simple to understand, no silly controls just the basics which is all you need, you can actually play with 1 hand if ever you feel like doing that lol.
They do say its best played with a controller but myself prefer k/b mouse, it just feels more responsive to me, but you do have alot more control with a controller so its really what you feel comfortable with.

The gameplay itself, well its like a retro dogfighting space shooter thats super fast paced, it offers a nice selection of game modes such as survival where you fight waves of different types of enemies and last as long as you can, to challenge mode where you need to hit the checkpoints within the time limit, then theres the arcade mode which is more like your story mode where you have to follow a mission, which is actually my favourite mode, theres also an online mode which im yet to try out but im sure i will.
(Be aware some modes not mentioned are still locked and are not currently playable right now)

The ships are not bad, a small variety to choose from and unlock through gaining points, they all have there own specs to suit your style but no customisation im afraid, that would be a cool feature to add tho.
The sound fx and soundtrack are pretty cool too and fits nicely with the games style, i did find the music abit glitchy at times or out of sync but not enough to annoy or put you off the game.

So overall I will say its not for the hardcore gamer but one of those games youl go back to every now and again, and if your an achievement hunter this will test your skills abit, and as im the type that gets frustrated quite easily i didnt find playing this that bad at all, infact i dont recall raging to this once so far, its actually quite relaxing to play.

Im not gonna rate it but i will say its worth buying for those casual days! So go get it and enjoy! i did!

For those interested heres a look at some gameplay:

Pre-Release Review

Looking at my play time, it doesn't seem a lot, and it isn't a lot, but it'll increase over time, because I did enjoy the game.

It's a more abstract 3D Dogfighting game with all kinds of interesting and strange enemies. You can also unlock different ships for yourself to play.

Every ship plays differently and has different weapons.

I played it with a Joystick / Flight Stick and it works fine, although I'd love to be able to "side-step" so-to-speak, but that isn't much of an issue by the time you get used to the controls.

Sound design seemed a bit basic.

I'd say, if you like the look of this game, then definitely give it a spin!
