Minecraft is an sandbox video game developed by Mojang. Released in 2011, it is an open world game which allows the player to play the game whichever way S/he wants to. Ever since its release it has taken the video game industry by storm.

Gaming website giants like IGN and Gamespot have rendered it as "one in a million".

Anthony Gallegos at IGN says about Minecraft :

No other video game has unleashed my creativity like Minecraft. I've spent countless hours chipping away at blocks, gathering the necessary materials to complete the next masterpiece that would otherwise only occupy my mind's eye.

Minecraft revolves around one simple principal: survival. The game is split into day and night cycles. During the day, you spend time gathering resources, whether it be searching for ore, digging holes, fishing or planting crops. Night is spent either indoors, mining underground tunnels, building tools or running around outside being chased by monsters.

The best thing about this game is that there are countless of possibilities for a player on how can he play the game. One can reside in a mountain, in a field, on snowy peaks in igloos, on an island and much more. Resources that are available for building tools and structures range from wood, stone to gold and diamond. One can forge diamond sword and go about killing zombies and later in the game we even get to slay a dragon.!!!


Apart from this Minecraft was released in 2011, and in that year many games gave it a tough competetion.

Considering the sandbox graphics of this game and its contemporaries such as "Batman : Arkham City", " Elder scroll V : Skyrim"( Which also has similar setting). MInecraft was loved widely due to its simple and elaborate gameplay.

Ever since its inception Minecraft has released many updates of the game latest being 1.9.3. Later updates have many features which the earlier versions do not have.


In conclusion i would just say that this game is indeed one in a million and one of the best games i've ever played. You all should give it a try. Believe me its worth it.
