Minecraft is an indie open world sandbox game with survival elements. The game world is entirely made up of blocks, and low-resolution textures are used for texturing. The game was originally developed by Swedish programmer Markus Persson, also known as Notch.
Graphics and Sound 10/10
The first thing you need to get used to is cubicity. Everything looks simple, the animals seem to be made of some kind of paper, and the tools are entirely composed of pixels. The whole picture looks like a message from the nineties. At first, you expect Mario or Pacman to crop up out of somewhere.
The palette of sounds in this game is quite diverse. Here you will hear both the mooing of cows and the sound of pouring water. Sounds also accompany movement during construction and other activities. The soundtrack is delightful and helps you immerse yourself in the atmosphere of the game.
There is nothing challenging about the controls system, especially if you have a mouse. Players use standard combinations sometimes with minor additions. In general, the game is designed so that your primary efforts go to creativity.
You will have complete freedom of action. You can find a million different activities here: dig, break, build, kill, steal, create, burn, explore, contemplate, and so on.
Here everything depends on your fantasy and willingness. It’s up to you to build railways, subways, medieval castles, sculptures, ships, complex mechanisms, entire villages, and even cities. The latter is found mainly in multi-player because building a whole town for oneself alone is very difficult and requires much time. However, you need to be quite inspired to create different outstanding things.
Lasting Appeal 9/10
The storyline is absent so that you will not wait with bated breath for new turns. Minecraft is a sandbox for a sandbox, nothing more, nothing less. The game is endless; endless, and aimless. So you can play it as much as you want and as long as your inspiration is enough for construction and discovery.
This game can draw you into its world for long hours. Its main plus is complete freedom of action. It would be inspiration and ideas. Minecraft also has its own unique graphics style that is impossible to forget. The game is simple but very addicting, which makes it incredibly engaging.
