I had planned to write something about the Borderlands series, but that will have to wait. I have something I need to get off my chest first. It's very personal, and I hope the two or three of you who follow my sparse blog will spare me this moment. I joked in my review for the bizarre...

Blockmaster Screenshots



Blockmaster is similar to Crazy Arcade BnB’s design that was once highly popular among Casual Game fans.

But gamers will realize that Blockmaster is actually a very different game from previous Casual Games. Aside from TopView perspective and SD-form characters, BnB is a puzzle-style action game, while Blockmaster is a shooting-action game.

12 vs 12 Players on Action-Packed Shooting Battle
Raviok’s representative NAM Kwang-Won refers to Blockmaster’s genre as TPS. His definition of TPS does not mean “Third Person Shooter” but stands for “Top Perspective Shooting”. It serves as a genre title representing the game-nature of Blockmaster as shooting from top viewpoint.

Blockmaster is a shooting game in which the player throws blocks to knock down the opponent. Within a designated map space, as many as 12 players per team can form a team and battle against the opposing team. Depending on the distance, many offense strategies are available and teams can earn items through various shooting actions.

Furthermore, the game provides a PvE mode where a Boss Monster makes an appearance to add onto an interesting game. This Boss Monster can also turn into a guardian and be used in the game.

Strategy Granting Skill-Deck System
In Blockmaster, players battle with basic tool/skills, such as punch, ball, and block, and option skills which are nuclear bomb, and/or strengthener. Each skill is shown on the “skill deck” located on the bottom area of the game screen. It consists of 10 skill spaces of which the first 3 spaces are for basic skills, and the next 2 are for option skills.

A particular characteristic about the skill deck is that the spaces designated for each skill takes up more space as that specific skill improves. This makes it important for the player to distinguish which skill would be most needed and can occupy lots of space.

The skill enhancer is made possible not just by earning special points, but by time limit, which makes it fair even for those not advanced in action games.

A New Method of Strength Battle – Winning Land
Blockmaster has 3 clans that are known as Big Boss, Cold Papa, and Brr, but there is no inter-clan fighting mode available for players. Instead, World Map can provide for such battle, as World Map mode provides a lot more empty slots, which users can lease as their land by earning points from games.

Leased land is divided per clans, and the clan with most land earns special “buff” and also can earn special bonus when using the certain advantage. A housing system that will allow players to build homes on the leased land is currently in the making as well.
