Minecraft is a sandbox game about building houses, discovering new areas, and protecting yourself from hostile enemies. If you don't want to gather resources, you can play in the creative mode. Over 30 million players have already downloaded the game.
Gameplay: Build Anything You Want 10/10
Minecraft lets you build anything you want in a sandbox world. Like PC and console versions, the mobile edition has survival elements present, including hunger and health. You can play with your friends who also have Minecraft installed on their mobile devices.
The interface and other elements were updated to suit the mobile standard. To interact with objects, you just need to tap on them. The items are removed by long-tapping their icons in the crafting menu. The gameplay was simplified to comply with touchscreens.
Graphics: Highlighted Blocks 10/10
Blocks are highlighted for better visibility on smartphones. The game features the same graphics that can be found on the Java Edition Alpha version of the game, which means old cobblestone texture, bright green grass, and so on. Shading and lighting are affected by the sun.
Little by little, you will change the pristine world into whatever you desire. You can build sky bridges, space stations, seaside houses, or anything else. The freedom Minecraft offers is unique. The whole world is crossed with mountains, forests, oceans, and valleys.
Lasting Appeal: Endless Game for the Whole Family 10/10
If you love Minecraft, you might disagree with your family about how much time you can play the game. There is no limit on fun, and you can spend days and months building a big world. If you're looking for a fun way to spend time, Minecraft is the best solution.
Controls: Virtual D-Pad 8/10
The mobile version comes with a D-Pad with the jump button in the center. You can tap on the screen to place blocks and automatically jump on blocks by getting close to them. Tap and hold the screen to destroy blocks. Pause the screen to change the camera angle. Tap a triple-dotted button to open the inventory screen.
