Minecraft Windows 10 Edition mixes exploration, survival and creativity all into a pixelated and blocky world of mystery and wonder. You can create fantastic structures and buildings and collaborate with the other players on the map. In fact, half the fun of Minecraft comes down to the gameplay with other players. Over the years, Minecraft has changed a lot, but the essence of the game remains the same. You have a randomly generated world that you can mine for materials, and you can explore underground caves and other things.

You start the game with your bare hands, but you can cut down trees to obtain wood and build other things. With the wood, you can create sticks and planks that help you to build a workbench. Using the workbench, you can craft tools and objects. While you might start with the more primitive tools, you continue to work your way up to creating armors, metal tools and weapons that will help you to survive in the world of Minecraft. Survival mode in Minecraft pits you against the dangerous monsters of the game, and while you can take to fighting them, your best bet is to take shelter until the sun rises.

Creative mode, where you do not have the monsters to contend with, is a little different. Instead you have other threats, like hunger, and you can use the game to create a variety of different structures. What becomes the main focus in Creative mode is to create interesting buildings. You have more of a "LEGO" element in this mode, which is part of what made Minecraft into a wildly popular game with parents and children alike. In fact, Minecraft is one of the best games around for expressing your creativity, and even when you go into survival mode, you have a perfectly family-friendly game.

One aspect that has made Minecraft different from other games is how little gets explained. You start out inside of a world, and there are no instructions. Luckily, as the game has grown and continued, a rich and detailed online Wiki site has been constructed that lets you find guides and information. It might not look like the type of game where you can get a lot of depth, but Minecraft actually has a surprising level of depth to it. Once you grasp the basics of mining, survival and crafting, it becomes exceptionally fun to play. Few games, even in today's market, give you the same level of freedom that you find with Minecraft. The landscapes can be dramatic, and both the sunrises and sunsets are interesting to watch. Overall, it is a great game to check out that will give you and the whole family a creative outlet.
