Use your imagination in Minecraft to create a world where strategy is needed to survive.

Minecraft is a game that plays off of the imagination. There are numerous buildings to create, and you can find special treasures along the way. You can raise farm animals, such as pigs and cows, while Creepers and zombies try to kill you and attack your home. One of the best things about this game is that your home can be anything that you want as long as you have the right tools. You can make a large castle or a small home with a basement that has storage for all of the food and tools that you collect.

In order to collect tools and food, you have to walk around the land of Minecraft. While exploring, you will come across things that don't want you to succeed. You can make tools from diamonds, stones and rocks so that you have a way to defeat the enemy. However, there are some Creepers that won't let you get to certain areas unless you put up a fight.

There is a small box at the bottom of your screen that shows your belongings. When you want to make something, such as a meal or a tool, all you have to do is click on the box to find the right components to make that item. Most of the time, you will find that all of the items required to make meal or tool are in the same row.

You will see that there is no limit as to how large you can make your home. Add fences to keep all of your animals in one place. Plant a garden so that you have fresh food. Kill your animals for meat. Add decorations to give your home charm and personality. There are lights that you can add to the outside along with various doors and building materials so that you have the home that you want.

One of the things to keep in mind is that there are hazards in the game. You might come across a volcano with lava or a pond with water that you can't swim across. There are portals to other worlds, such as Nether. You could also come across a large dragon, which is very hard to defeat. Minecraft is a game that does take skill, but it's also fun to play and can consume hours of your time.
