Minecraft is a game chock-full of adventure, exploring, and creativity where you survive in a world composed of blocks – similar to Legos – that you can move around however you like from your first-person perspective. And when we say ‘however you like’, we really mean it, as you can collect blocks of any sort of material to use later for whatever you see fit.
Like this, you can do everything from chipping off big chunks of stone to build a house, to chopping down trees to build furniture to put in your house, or even putting together more complex projects like wells, statues, buildings, etc. Your only limit is your imagination, and as soon as you start creating you’ll realize that the options at your disposal are practically infinite.
But obviously, building things is only part of Minecraft. The other part happens at nightfall, when monsters come out of their caves and the game becomes a proper survival horror title. It’s then that you have to face off against giant spiders, skeletons, endermen, or the terrifying creepers. And it’s then that you’ll make good use of your sword or bow and arrows.
To survive in the world of Minecraft you’ll need more than just your home with a bed, your sword, and a few tools. You’ll need to explore your world, as the best materials aren’t always lying around in plain sight. And you’ll definitely need to make use of the huge freedom the game offers at all times.
Minecraft is the most successful independent game of recent times. And with good reason. This masterpiece from developer Notch has managed to worm its way into the hearts of millions of players.
This version only lets you play for 100 minutes.
