More about Minecraft
In Minecraft, the popular building game from the Swedish independent game company Mojang, players are not trying to win, progress through goals or fight enemies in order to defeat the game. Instead, they create worlds and buildings by breaking and placing blocks of different materials. They also can explore the worlds of others as they play.
It is available for desktop computer (which offers the most extensive play) for Apple and Android devices, and for Xbox 360.
Players can operate in different modes — “Creative” or “Survival” — and at different levels, like “peaceful,” “normal” or “hard.” They also can join different servers, or worlds created by other people. In Survival mode, creatures like “creepers” or “Endermen” can attack and players' characters can die before re-spawning to play again. The deaths are not graphic and don't reveal anything too scary.
Also, players can play as single players, where their primary goal is building things, or meet up with other players on different servers in multiplayer mode. Some servers are elaborate and can include problem-solving in mazes; others might be adventure play for various levels.
