OverviewOverview

Blankos Block Party is an online game where you collect and create custom characters based on toy figurines. Along with the built-in modes of racing, platforming and shooting, you can also plug and play your own levels in a similar fashion how Disney Infinity worked, although with a simpler set of tools.

Like Roblox playing with others online enable players to invent their own games is a big part of the draw. Here though, the level creation can be done in the same environment that you play in.

Blankos Block Party will also focus on collecting and customising the full series of characters as you progress through the game. You do this by earning in-game currency. As we saw in games like Skylanders each of the virtual characters can be upgraded in different ways that affect their abilities and how they perform in-game.

The game offers a central area with characters that offer quests and missions that give you rewards to power-up your Blanko figures. This will change and evolve over a specific season of content.
