TL;DR: It's the Lego game you've always wanted. Development is dead and player counts are low. If that doesn't bother you, buy the four pack when it goes on sale and gift the extra copies to some buddies.

In my short time playing Blockland I have done so many different things and have had so many unique experiences, without ever having to sink my teeth into a line of code or advanced scripting.
The amount of variety in this game is staggering, and I am wholly confident in saying that Blockland outdoes other games like Garry's Mod and ROBLOX in how many different modes, maps, and gameplay experiences you will have. Sure, it is probably the most limited of the three games in terms of what you can do with the engine, but it also the easiest to create with.
In Blockland, the knowledge needed to create advanced buildings, gamemodes, mods and servers is so much lower than any other similar game I have played, which means that any player is allowed to run rampant with their ideas and create any kind of experience they can think of. And naturally as a result, you will never know what to expect when entering a server for the first time.

The biggest catch to this game however is the amount of people playing. It is constantly low, and though depending on time of day you can find a decent amount of activity, you will be hard pressed for options when finding a server. The game is no longer being developed as far as I know. Progress on the game has been dead for 2-3 years, if you count bugfixes as progress. The game hasn't seen a major update in half a decade, probably longer at this point. As such, many people believe the game to be dead, and the player count reflects that.

The game is honestly phenomenal, and while I understand a lot of people will write it off as childish or limited, there truly is so much here that you get for your money.
During a sale, a four pack of this game costs about as much as a movie ticket for a single person. Honestly, you could have MORE fun sitting around in a room playing Blockland in the same room on your laptops or over Discord for the same amount of time as it would take to watch a movie, and for a fraction of the price. Plus, you all get to keep the game, and the generous minimum requirements + incredibly low install size (78 MB or something like that) means that you can keep it downloaded without fear of it eating any space on your PC.

So, what's the final verdict?
Do what I did, and buy the four pack when it goes on sale. Sit down with your friends after lunch or something and play the♥♥♥♥♥♥out of the Pirate Deathmatch gamemode for a few hours. From there, you can decide if you like it enough to keep playing beyond that.

The Pros:
  • Huge amount of variety everytime you play.
  • Incredibly fun with friends.
The Cons:
  • Development is dead.
  • There aren't too many players online compared to other sandbox games.

I recommend Blockland with a 7/10.
