Minecraft 1.8.1 / 1.8.2 Pre 1
Intriguing and entertaining indie game about building structures, discovering mysteries and fighting with all kinds of monsters when the night comes
In order to play Minecraft, you'll need to register for an account that you can use to play both offline and with others with the help of a server.
The idea of the game is simple: players focus on building structures and fighting off enemies. You can freely explore, modify and interact with a pixelated world made of one-cubic-meter-sized blocks.
The environment also includes various objects such as items, mobs (animals) and plants. Using your tools, you can mine for ore, create new blocks, enchant items and fight hostile mobs.
Minecraft provides you with endless possibilities in the sense that you can create your own single player maps, structure and even artwork. Much like an MMO, Minecraft is a game that never ends. Theoretically, you can collect as many resources and craft any number of structures as you like.
Moreover, the game offers two modes: Creative and Survival. The first enables you to make huge structures from the ground up in a hostile-free world. The latter, however, is for players who want to be challenged by incoming monsters. Your goal here is to craft items and defend yourself at all costs.
Aside from the usual activities, you can also try to journey to an alternate dimension (The End) where the goal is to defeat the Ender Dragon. It's not as easy as it sounds, though.
