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

Create Your Own World Using Lego Blocks and Cubes with Minecraft

By Reinalei Jamir

On Tuesday, May 13, 2014

Minecraft is a game about building stuff with blocks. It is also about discovery, loneliness, creativity and survival. The moment you start playing it, you are dropped into the wilderness. The game’s environment is generated from the word “go” which means players must continue to expand until they have enough to make the game generate two times the size of Earth.

Minecraft has achieved significantly to provide a well rounded gaming experience. It has given players like me the experience to explore freely and rebuild the environment of the game on a almost overrated level. Nonetheless, it can be played by gamers of all ages.

The game is a wonder of game design. It features interesting and simple mechanics. The graphics are low-resolution, yet attractive. You will spend hours digging and creating your own world with Minecraft. If you have a computer and haven’t given this game a try, you are missing one of the best experiences of this generation. You must try this game now!

Pros

  • Crafting system has amazing depth
  • Excellent creative outlet that is perfect for gamers of any age

Cons

  • The final boss is absurdly tough

Creating Your Own World Using a Bunch of Blocks and Cubes with Mincecraft

By Rose Sincro

On Tuesday, May 13, 2014

Minecraft is the most popular downloadable game on the Internet. It is very educational game in many ways. It obviously inspires creativity and it is helpful in many things especially for children. It is a game where players build stuff with a bunch of blocks and cubes.

It is also about discovering the unknown terrain of the worlds and dimensions you create, social interaction within the communities you built, and creativity as displayed and shown in the designs of various Minecraft worlds. At first, players must build structures or buildings to protect them against monsters, but as the game develops, players should work together to create wonderful and imaginative things.

Minecraft is truly a wonder of game design. The environment of the game is truly awesome! It has great visuals, graphics and sound tracks which make the game fun and exciting. I first started to play Minecraft two years ago, and all I can say is, it is totally fun. Overall, Minecraft provides a safe environment where players learn teamwork and responsibility as they build their own world together.

Pros

  • Balanced adventuring and building combined
  • A fun creative outlet perfect for gamers of all ages

Cons

  • No in game tutorials or recipe guides

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.

Your main objective is to build a shelter to survive the monsters that appear during the night

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.
