Default Block Ops - Voxel based FPS

Hello everyone,

Block Ops is a new, voxel based first person shooter game currently in development for iOs. The game will feature a tongue-in-cheek, humorous look at modern gaming (the modern military shooter subgenre in particular) combined with a destructible, block-based world.

Here are some screenshots and a gameplay video:

It only uses the minecrafts art style, nothing else.

It sure has potential though.

Not even close; Minecraft uses pixels and very basic polygon models.

Voxels are cuboid pixels, with one color and varying sizes. Because of how they're designed, they're actually much less graphically draining than polygons and pixels. You could effectively display billions of voxels on screen, and you would hardly notice the performance hit (so long as your GPU isn't run of the mill or integrated).

It's a much more innovative graphical design than Minecraft. Assuming each voxel has physics simulation, bullets could tear through individual voxels, allowing you to make your own entrances in walls and such.

For a good game to see what voxels can do, check out Voxatron.

The game looks really nice. I want to see more images and the controls seem similar to slender.
