Minecraft is based on a Sandbox video game. In this game, we can create our own world with the help of blocks. On starting the game for the first time you will enter the map as a helpless and confused player. It will take some time to understand how the game can be played and what to do in the game.
As soon as you enter the map you will able to see the landscape. Some areas would be full of trees, some covered with grasses, some covered with sand, and the rest of the area would be full of water. The player will be allotted a Minecraft default character. The game character comes with a health bar having 10 hearts.
The health bar goes on reducing if the in-game player causes damage. Damage can be caused due to fire, lava, falling from a high location, drowning, or else being hit by other players. Here the resources like water, sand, grass, stone, ice, fire are used in-game for which helps you to make your own Minecraft world. We can relate this game to real life.
Also the monsters like large spiders, skeletons and zombies will spawn in darker areas of a certain radius of the character, so to protect from it the player needs to build a shelter at night. The game player also has a hunger bar which goes down when the player feels hungry, so the player needs to keep eating food to refill the hunger bar.
The character comes with an empty inventory. In inventory, we can store the different resources used in the making of blocks. The various types of blocks are created using the crafting table. Here we have to do mining to extract ore and many other useful materials used for the construction purpose. The mining is done under the surface of the map. Through mining, we can come across a cave and some hidden areas under the map.
In the game, crafting is very important. Through crafting, we can make many tools and blocks which will be required for the construction purpose. We can create a sword, hammer, bow and arrow, and many more through crafting.
