Minecraft for PC, X360 and etc. is an extremely popular independent game from Mojang AB Studios. Players take on the character who first acquires large brick-like blocks and then uses them to build various structures.

The whole game is basically one big sandbox, in no way limiting player’s freedom. You are thrown into a procedurally generated world built entirely of three-dimensional blocks. While exploring the world you collect materials which you can then use to create whatever you think of - weapons, tools, or buildings. The world of Minecraft is made of such very blocks, each of them having its own characteristics and being suitable for different purposes.

The game offers Classic mode, where you can build things without worrying about anything, as well as Survival Mode. In the latter, you can feel safe only during the day. When night falls, monsters come out, whose sole purpose is to take your life, and only a good preparation during the day can save you from death. You can go as far as you want in your endeavors, because the game’s world is unlimited and is generated automatically as you discover new areas. In addition, the authors prepared multiplayer mode, in which you build structures in cooperation with other players.

Minecraft for PC, X360 and etc. has a retro design. Although the game was created in full 3D, each of the world’s elements is made of large rectangular blocks, recalling to mind productions from 8-bit Commodore 64 computers.
