Software Overview

Minecraft is a popular construction game that is available on a wide range of platforms. The game allows you to build anything you can imagine using the blocks that exist in the world.

The game world is made up of blocks of different elements like sand, rock, and wood that you can destroy to harvest their resources. After destroying blocks, their resources get added to your inventory and you can place the blocks wherever you wish to make your own creations. Besides blocks of resources you can also harvest plants and animals and craft different things with items obtained from them.

Minecraft can be played in survival, creative, adventure, and multiplayer modes. In survival mode, you must collect resources in order to craft blocks and items to prepare for monster attacks that occur at night. Creative mode provides access to most of the resources and items in the game and allows you to place and remove them instantaneously. Adventure mode is similar to survival mode, but enables you to experience other players' worlds. Multiplayer in Minecraft utilizes player-hosted servers, making it possible to play simultaneously with other players.

Minecraft is a great game for those who enjoy using their creativity. If you liked playing with Legos when you were a kid, there's a good chance you'll like building your own worlds in Minecraft as well.
