What the block you gonna do?
Block N Load is an online 5v5 multiplayer FPS with a central theme of building with assorted blocks. With six classes to choose from, the aim of the game is to destroy the enemy's base before they manage to destroy yours. Oh, this game is also made by Jagex. Does this put you in mind of something else?

Yes, this game is very similar to the other building combat game, Ace of Spades. Despite this, there is only one game mode available, which is to destroy the enemy's base by taking down two cubes before taking down the main base of the enemy. Currently in beta, it is available on Steam here.

This game provides examples of:

  • Ax-Crazy: Nigel Purdey-Longshott is hinted to be somewhat mentally unstable by his character trailer, mentioning that hunting apparently calms him down.
  • Bigfoot, Sasquatch and Yeti: Yury the well-read yeti philosopher.
  • Deadly Gas: Eliza Doolally's biggest offensive asset, which causes Damage Over Time.
  • The Engineer: Tony Turretto.
  • Fragile Speedster: O.P. Juan Shinobi is quick and can blaze a trail across the map with ease, though he can't take a whole lot of damage in return. Same goes for Astarella.

  • Griefer: Like Ace of Spades before it, a player can very easily bring effective fortifications crashing down For the Evulz.
  • I Call It "Vera": Nigel Purdey-Longshott's primary weapon, his rifle, is called "Nellie".
  • Katanas Are Just Better: O.P. Juan Shinobi's primary weapon is a katana.
  • Machete Mayhem: Nigel Purdey-Longshott's digging tool.
  • McNinja: O.P. Juan Shinobi. This ninja ain't clumsy: He's Mexican!
  • Poisonous Person: Eliza Doolally, who mostly fights by shooting poison gas and leaves behind a gas cloud on death.
  • Quintessential British Gentleman: Nigel Purdey-Longshott.
    Ha ha! Toodle-pip!
  • Revolvers Are Just Better: Nigel Purdey-Longshott's secondary weapon is a revolver.
  • Robo Speak: Cogwheel, being a robot, does plenty of this.
  • Sentry Gun: One of Tony Turretto's main fortes.

  • Shout-Out: Seriously, O.P. Juan Shinobi?!
  • Shovel Strike: Sgt. Stone's digging tool is a trench shovel. If all else fails, he can simply bash his enemies with it.
  • Sound-Coded for Your Convenience: If you don't have the area radar'd, dig-tool sounds are the best clue you have that someone is digging a tunnel into your base. Most heroes have a distinctive sound for their tool, so you can gauge the level of threat that's about to show up. Also, spawn quotes are a handy indicator that an enemy respawn pad is nearby, and some heroes' noises can help you find an enemy who's trying to hide. (Looking at you, Juan.)
  • Stiff Upper Lip: Nigel Purdey-Longshott.
    Didn't hit any major organs. Let me just check... hm, yes, I'm fine.
    I don't feel the full ticket, actually, I'm rather... dead.
  • Technicolor Toxin: Eliza Doolally's poison gas is bright green.
  • Wolverine Claws: O.P. Juan Shinobi's digging tool.

How well does it match the trope?
