    MChang's Minecraft (PC)

    [October 16, 2012 01:47:36 AM]
    My friend had given me a Minecraft account long ago however I never tried playing it. Recently my roommate convinced me to play with him since he got an account too. I have never experienced the game first hand, but I have seen many videos on it and watched other people play. I did have background information when I first started playing, so it was too painful to start out.

    Minecraft is a sandbox game developed and published by Mojang in 2009. A sandbox game is a game where the player can roam freely through a virtual world and have the freedom to do what they want. Minecraft is divided into creative mode and survival mode. In creative mode, the player has all the building materials that can be found in the game. The player also cannot die and has the ability to “fly”. Survival mode is different. In this mode, the player has to collect and build everything from scratch. The player has hearts as health and hambones as hunger. As you get hurt in the game, whether it is from falling or from enemies that spawn in dark places, you lose hearts. The hearts do regenerate as long as you are not missing any hambones. Food is available to restore hunger.

    In survival mode, the game allows the player to break blocks which represent building material. Each block can be used for different things. Some blocks are sand, wood, cobblestone, gravel, and dirt. These are the basic blocks to start off with. As you progress more into the game; iron, coal, gold, and diamond can be found to craft better equipment. The game has to mechanics. They are mining and crafting. As you try to find more and better material to build whatever you need, you must survive in the game.

    Creative mode is where you can get creative. All the material are infinite for you to use, therefore you can build whatever you please. This is where the creativity comes in. Building anything is possible in Minecraft. There are also redstone which is a type of in game programming. This expands the capability of Minecraft a lot. Not only can a player build house, towns, castles; the player can also build things that have a specific or basic purpose such as a light switch or a TNT Cannon. This creativity is possible in survival mode, but the player must get the material themselves.

    Minecraft is a wonderful sandbox game that challenges the creativity of oneself. Whether you play on creative or survival mode, the player chooses what to build and how to create their world the way they want it.
