    Block n blow it up

    I have enjoyed playing this and I like the system they have used sort of like Team Fortress 2 with play style of Minecraft.

    I am pretty good demo man on TF2.

    Team Fortress 2 on drugs

    This is like upgraded TF2, since you buy heroes for ingame cash and even the least expensive heroes can kill more expensive heroes. Each character has a few perks, blocks and 1 abillity. Skins are only cosmetic and do not change the gameplay at all (exept for makeing Sweet Science look like a hulk running at you and scaring you)
    The gameplay is simple, there is/are 1, 2 or 3 cubes, you have to destroy the enemy ones while protecting yours.
    The game is super fun and i still play it almost every day. My only problem is that there used to be free skins but they got removed).

    Good Game

    Why should you play Block N' Load? Think if TF2 had relations with a base-building game and left the child in Minecraft to do what it pleases.

    Basic Gameplay:

    At the start of a match you get a set period of time to build a base to protect your cubes and/or base. Using stock blocks, traps, and your own creativity, figure out a way to stop the other team from hitting your stuff. After that time period, all bets are off as you start trying to hammer on their base while stopping them from hammering yours.

    Blocks take bricks, which can be mined from existing blocks on the maps. Each block has a different strength, purpose, cost, and brick return (so on and so forth) meaning the possibilities are endless if you have the bricks and time to build it.

    Pros:

    Truly pay for premium. Gold is earned after every match (more if you win and complete objectives you see on your home screen) and that gold can buy heros as well as perks to those heros (which is the only way to get perks. That guy with really tanky turrets, really powerful sniper shots, or seemingly infinite grenades had to earn all of them). In the meantime, there is a guaranteed three hero free rotation that features one hero from each role hierarchy, Brawn for tanky characters, Brains for base defense and support, and Skill for infiltration and sneaky gameplay. Heros themselves differ quite a bit from hero to hero too, no two heros fulfill exactly the same role in game. Speaking of which...

    Hero variety: There is a sizable amount of heros to pick from, from the Italian construction worker with turrets, Tony, to a psychotic killer clown who can mess with your mind, Kreepy, to an English explorer and big game hunter, Nigel, to this game's version of Rambo, Sarge Stone, to yetis, genies, mad acid doctors, so on and so forth. Each hero has a passive ability, and activatable one, and their own unique hero block.

    High skill ceiling and fair balancing. That perfect base you built last time? Don't expect it to work every time. Every hero and playstyle has its counter, whether it's the bullet hell of a Tony turret blockade being shut down by sniping and tunnelling, to even the tankiest brawn character getting outsmarted by mines.

    Community input. It's got a map builder. Shameless plug, I have two maps made. If only more people went to the custom games instead of basic gameplay...

    Functioning matchmaking. Don't worry if you're a noob. The game actively tries to match you up with other people at your skill level. The longer you wait though, the more chance you get some really good players, but even then, the game tries to set teams up fair, with more or less equal skill distributions.

    Runs on potatoes. My laptop is kinda crap, and the game runs perfectly fine on low settings. Let performance issues not be a problem unless you are running REALLY out of dated hardware.

    Con:

    No kick function discovered. You will have those jerks who ruin your defenses to troll your team. As of yet, I have not found a way to kick them. This is also a very isolated occurrance, at least for me, and doesn't happen too often.

    Verdict:

    Get this game blockhead. Sarge Stone wants YOU to download this game, Tony's union is always recruiting, and Nigel's hunting entourage can always be expanded a bit.

    Used to be buy to play until it went F2P

    Block and load is an unique step to FPS that being said it falls into why did they make this? It's an voxel defense game where you have to place traps and blocks to protect your base core if that is blown up by the other team you loose the game. The classes in general is very good but let me get to the point Jagex decided to make this game free to play why? Because it was boring and the price tag for it was too expensive! ( i payed for it ) And yet they treated there paying costumers like garbage and only giving them skins which is lame no premium gold to buy anything you want? Overall good game but plague by "BAD" devs.
