MINECRAFT 1.8

This is a free trial video game developed by Mojang, it is very interesting game that involves building up a shelter to free you against all kinds of hostile mobs: zombies, skeletons, spider jockeys among others that persistently bother you at night, you can build up a shelter of any kind from caves, regular house to mansions.

When building your empire for shelter you need to consider food and light as very important elements, the more your shelter and the surrounding is lit the less monster will appear to attack you.

The game has two different main modes survival and creative. Survival is the classic one and both can be played online with friends or with people around the global. In survival mode you need grow and farm you food for you to survive.

Apart from hiding from monsters, you can fight back hostile creatures by crafting your own bow and arrows. And unlike in the survival mode, creative mode is a bit fairer because you have unlimited lives, you can not suffer much harm, eating is not necessary, you have unlimited amount of material at your disposal, enough blocks that you can build whatever you want, enough items to attack creatures from passive, neutral, useful to hostile.

Pros

  • Excellent creativity and inspiring game.
  • Simple and easy to play

Cons

  • Do not contain learning tutorials

Be more creative to survive as your build a shelter over your roof.

By Jackson Muoka

On Monday, March 30, 2015

This is a game that I find so appealing and thrilling. It’s majorly made for those people who will like to undergo challenges and survive. Developed by Mojang, Minecraft is a strategy that that requires gamers to create a roof over their heads to ensure that they are not attacked by monsters who appear during night time. Gamers have the freedom to choose the kind of a shelter to build and can choose from a wide range of shelters ranging from regular houses, castles or even palaces.

Once one is secure from the night attacks from monsters they need to achieve another objective and search for food so as not to die of hunger. In this strategy gamers will rely on other kind of material and creatures and can decide to grow cereals and raise cows or poultry or even other animals that can be tamed. While constructing their shelters gamers should put in to considerations natural phenomena like gravity and water and thing to hold lava and water from flowing so they should plant trees.

Shelters should be built in well-lit area because this will also serve to scare away monsters at night and also for good vision.

Pros

  • • Different modes of game to choose from
  • • It is quite involving making it a wonderful game

Cons

  • • Its graphics need some more advancement

Use Your Imagination for Creative Visualization of Your Own Worlds with Minecraft

By Christine Diaz

On Friday, May 9, 2014

Minecraft is quite fun and the simplest game I have ever played. It is a sandbox game produced by Mojang AB and inspired by the Dungeon Keeper games. In this game, there are many things you can do and create using blocks. The gameplay is easy yet addictive enough. Every time I play, I can’t stop for hours on end and I never get bored.

When my friends ask me what is Minecraft? I always explain to them that it is a game where you can build creative structures and artwork using blocks. All I can say is if a game like this sold 600,000 units and is currently in Alpha version, then this shows that this game is one of the finest and most creative game in a long time. The only downside of this game is that it is addictive. One you start playing it, I bet you will not stop.

Overall this is a great game to build, to survive and get together.

Pros

  • Great balance between building and adventuring
  • Crafting system has amazing depth

Cons

  • Less combat oriented, no boss fights and less monsters

Review

Minecraft is a strategy sandbox game developed by Mojang. In Minecraft, your main objective is to build a shelter to survive the monsters that appear during the night. You can build whatever you want, from a regular house, to a castle, a palace or Minas Tirith. Your second objective is to find food if you don't want to die of hunger. For this purpose, you rely on other kinds of materials and creatures that will help you survive. You will have to harvest timber, work rock, or mine the land to get raw materials. You can grow cereals or raise cows, chickens, pigs and sheep. You must take into account that gravity is a force during the game and materials such as water, sand, lava or other non-compact materials will flow if they do not have anything to hold them back.

Light is another important element in Minecraft. The more your shelter and it's surroundings are lit, the less hostile creatures will appear and attack you. Maps are randomly generated and this way, new worlds are created every time you start a new game. In addition, they are infinite and not initially created as a whole. Scenarios are created in blocks of 16 x 16, which are generated as you travel through the map. Every generated block is saved in the game memory and you can go back the same way you travelled.

Each Minecraft map has a day-night cycle that is equal to 20 minutes. They also have their own weather since it can rain, snow, or be sunny. Different ecosystems are generated, and you can find a forest, a jungle, tundra, seas, oceans, deserts, mountains, lakes and so on. Apart from this, you will encounter Mods, which are created by players in Minecraft. You can download and play Mods that are usually packs with textures or creatures (Creepers with different colors and powers, or even clay-made stickmen that fight amongst themselves). In addition, Mods may bring different scenarios from popular movies or books (Rivendell, Asgard, The Death Star, etc.) and different game modes, such as the famous Hunger Games mod, in which you have to fight for your life until you are the last person alive.

Mobs and game modes

Within Minecraft you have two main game modes, Survival (the classic one) and Creative. Both can be played in Multiplayer mode, which means you can play online with different friends or with people from around the world. In Survival, you have ten lives (displayed as little red hearts) and you have to feed yourself to survive. For this, you are free to eat bread made from the cereals, fish or pork, or even zombie meat. You will have to build your house (or mansion, or cave or whatever you want) to shelter from monsters that will persistently stalk you by night. However, instead of hiding, you can fight them by crafting your own bow and arrows, swords and armor. To do this, you must create a crafting table and mix materials such as sand, rock, coal, diamonds, emeralds, wood, etc.

In the creative mode, you have unlimited lives, so you cannot suffer any harm. Eating for survival is not necessary, and you will have at your disposal limitless amount of material without working to get them. Thanks to this endless supply of blocks, you can build whatever you want. In addition, you will have all kinds of items such as armor and swords, or you can even generate creatures (either hostile or neutral) from their eggs.

Watch out, there are Minecraft Mobs - creatures that can swarm the world and can be divided into Passive, Neutral, Useful and Hostile. Passive Mobs will not attack you; even if you attack them they will not respond. Among these ones you can find chickens, cows, ocelots, pigs, and so on. Usually, you will be able to take advantage of these creatures since they provide food (pigs, chickens), some kinds of materials (wool from sheep, leather from cows...), transport (horses) or protection (ocelots scare Creepers).

Neutral Mobs are creatures that will not attack you unless you attack them. Here you can find the Enderman, which will attack you if you look directly into their eyes, Zombie Pigmen, or wolves. Useful Mobs are those which serve you as defenders or provide transport. Within this group, it is worth mentioning Golems (iron and snow ones) which will attack hostile Mobs that get close to you or your house. In this case, the Snow Golem will distract enemies while you flee, and the Iron Golem will defeat enemies as it has a very powerful attack. Both must be crafted by the player.

Finally, let’s talk about your beloved Minecraft friends, the Hostile Mobs. They will attack you because it is in their genes, without any provocation. We are talking about the amazing Creepers! They are the most annoying creatures in the game, since they can blow up your house in the blink of an eye. You can also find Zombies, Skeletons or Spiders...even combinations of two creatures, such as the Spider-riding Skeletons. However, they are not the worst ones (though they are the most annoying!). If you manage to open the Nether Door, and you enter this creepy world, you will find awful creatures. The Ghast, the Lepisma or the Flame will appear and defeat you if you do not take care. Finally, you can face the two final bosses found in Minecraft: the Ender Dragon, which is generated at the End and which, if you defeat it, the game is completed; and the Whiter, which must be invoked.
