Blockman Go This was a game that became very popular over the years. It was a mix of Minecraft’s server-based games and Roblox. Now, Garena, the popular game developer and publisher, has taken over the game’s operations in certain regions and the game has been rebranded as Garena Blockman Go. Still the same game but under new management and we’ll hopefully see the game go in a more positive direction. This article will review Garena Blockman GO, and share our first impressions.
Play and create your own games, similar to Roblox-like platforms
Let’s start with the ReviewGarena Blockman Go looks like it took a lot of inspiration from Roblox (to such an extent that it can be considered a copy). Everything, from the menus to even the game’s blocky design, looks very similar to Roblox.
Now that doesn’t mean it’s not a good game and was rather enjoyable. Bed WarsA variety of shooters are available. Jail BreakMany others were enjoyable. Not games that you would play for too long if you’re a serious gamer because who would pick a game with aged graphics over something like Apex Legends Mobile.
Now it’s important to understand that Garena Blockman Go isn’t a game itself. It’s a platform where users can create, upload and run their own games. These games can be made from any topic and heavily rely on the multiplayer aspect. Players can play in different cities, take part in various competitive events, and pick up their weapons. There are many games with active communities so there is no time for quiet moments in any major game.
Blockman Go offers a wide selection of games from all genres.
Garena Blockman Go doesn’t specifically have any advantages over Roblox, which is a more refined experience so to say with bigger player bases. Now one thing to note is that this game does run somewhat better on lower spec devices, something which Roblox might not necessarily do all too well so if you’re running a low to the mid-ranged device, then you might want to consider Blockman Go.
The game truly has everything. FPSTo Roleplay to parkour so there’s no lack of content for players to enjoy and a lot of the gameplay really comes down to what the developers are putting on the platform. These games are not the most refined or engaging and you’ll probably have a better time playing Call of Duty Mobile More than you might think. Frontline but that’s not the appeal of this game so it’s not a very solid critique.
Graphics is definitely not the game’s strongest suit but it offers smooth controls and UI
Now the graphics differ from game to game but if you’re not someone who’s serious about the graphical side of things, then most games would be fine. They’re nowhere close to perfect or realistic but again, if you’re playing this game you’re probably not looking for top-notch graphics or audio. It’s a little janky in both aspects but it works for this game.
Both the controls and the UI are very good. They work satisfactorily and the UI is actually pretty well designed and works well, albeit very similar to Roblox’s UI. Again this game in all ways is a clone of Roblox so that’s not unexpected. Additionally, we also didn’t come across too many bugs or glitches during our testing period.
Blockman Go has no ads, but IAPs exist in the sandbox universe of Blockman.
The game doesn’t really have too much in the way of advertisements but there are in-app purchases. There were some issues with Blockman Go’s original Blockman Go game. The monetization became a bit predatory. Garena is handling this issue and there may be some changes. The currencies are spread out as of now.
Games like Roblox and Garena Blockman Go obviously don’t advertise the best gameplay. It’s more along the lines of minigames that are far from perfect in terms of the gameplay or the visual quality but do have the social elements and a bunch of slightly subpar experiences.
Roblox is still the most popular choice when it comes minigame platforms. However, as mentioned before, those with devices lacking in performance can definitely try out Blockman Go and it’s always good to have alternatives around.
Blockman Go has some issues with monetization, but a more experienced developer such as Garena might be able to make improvements in the future. It offers some really enjoyable experiences, with some caveats.
