Minecraft is a sandbox video game created and designed by Swedish game designer Markus "Notch" Persson, and later fully developed and published by Mojang. The creative and building aspects of Minecraft enable players to build constructions out of textured cubes in a 3D procedurally generated world. Other activities in the game include exploration, gathering resources, crafting, and combat. Multiple gameplay modes are available, including a survival mode where the player must acquire resources to build the world and maintain health, a creative mode where players have unlimited resources to build with and the ability to fly, an adventure mode where players can play custom maps created by other players, and a spectator mode where players can fly around and clip through blocks, but cannot place or destroy any.

Gameplay

In Minecraft, you can build anything you imagine. Start by building a shelter to keep you safe at night. Create weapons and tools: Use your weapons and tools to build even better things. Go on adventures: Explore caves and dungeons, fight dangerous mobs, find treasure and build amazing structures.

Graphics

Minecraft graphics consists of cubes of different sizes, colors and textures. The game uses 3D rendering which is not the most efficient way to create games. There are many 3D games that run a lot smoother than Minecraft does. Minecraft graphics might be seen as pixelated, but this is not the case. The game uses a lot of complex lighting and shading effects. The game has a lot of grass, stones and trees. All of these and other elements are rendered with the help of a very simple algorithm.

Replayability

Minecraft replayability is great, even for a sandbox game. In a sandbox game, you can do pretty much anything you want. Want to build a giant statue of yourself? Go for it. Want to build a giant statue of yourself on a horse? You can do that too. Want to build a giant statue of yourself on a horse and then ride it into a burning building? Go for it! In a sandbox game, the player is given the freedom to do pretty much anything they can imagine.

Controls

Minecraft controls are quite simple and easy to learn. There are not very many of them, so it is easy to memorize them in the first couple of minutes, also, the game provides you with a short tutorial, so you'll be able to start your game very fast.

Conclusion
