Gameplay: My Diamonds
The gameplay of Minecraft is truly unique. In a nutshell, it is a typical sandbox, where you gather resources and use them to craft and build different stuff. What makes Minecraft unique is the world of the game: it is fully made of destructible blocks. You may use different tools to gather different resources, dig deep mines in search of the rarest materials, hidden under the ground, or build skyscrapers of impressive heights. There are also lots of items to decorate the interior of your buildings and some items to modify resources. In total, there are almost 400 hundred items available to craft, which is very impressive for such a simple-looking game.
Graphics: Square Pants
The graphics are also pretty unique in Minecraft. The blocky world is not so detailed, and the graphics are not realistic at all. Everything in the world of Minecraft consists of blocks, creating some new atmosphere, and making the game very compatible. The mobile version does not significantly differ from the desktop one, and there is even cross-play between platforms available. The style won’t appeal to everyone, but in case you are fine with such visuals, the game is definitely worth trying. The great amount of different blocks available allows players to create truly impressive buildings, which even may look realistic from a distance.
Controls: Great Adaptation of Controls
The controls are very carefully adapted to mobile devices, so it is convenient to play Minecraft on all devices. The inventory management is implemented perfectly: there is a quick access bar of proper size at the bottom, and the interface is not overloaded at all. The character is controlled like in most other games, as you can move around and rotate the camera.
