On the surface Block N Load seems like a fun, casual mash-up of Minecraft and Team Fortress 2 – but dig a little deeper and anyone that has played the game will tell you there’s much more than meets the eye.
Honestly you don’t have to look too far to see what makes Block N Load stand out from the games it took inspiration from. Launched into the “Practice Grounds” tutorial, you get your first taste of life in the attractive battlegrounds of the game. The concept is undeniably simple. Build, fight, and destroy. These are the three straightforward options in the arena. You could dedicate your entire round to shoring up your teams defences, focus solely on killing your opponents or play to the objective and target the opposing team’s bases. Spend your time doing any of these three and I promise you will be kept busy, frustrated and, most importantly, engaged. The real skill is balancing these three elements of the gameplay – knowing when to be defending can be as key to winning as destroying the opponent’s core.
