If you're looking for a sandbox game that lets you do practically anything you want, then
Minecraft is right up your alley. As with any sandbox game, it's all about creativity and the freedom to create and build anything you can imagine. In Minecraft, your primary objective is to create buildings and survive from the horrendous monsters that appear after sunset. Along the way, you encounter strange creatures and various landscapes such as the desert and the tundra.
As mentioned, your objective in Minecraft is to explore the land and create huge structures based on the resources around you. You must build shelter to survive against hostile mobs such as zombies and skeletons that attack you during the night. In daylight hours, you encounter friendly mobs, which you can hunt for food or create survival materials. In addition, you have three gameplay modes to choose from: Survival, Creative and Classic.
Although you can roam the land freely, you can only place objects in specific locations based on the grid map. In recent versions, you have access to The Nether, which allows you to travel through the various Minecraft realms more easily and quickly.
In order to take advantage of everything Minecraft has to offer, you have to register a paid account at Minecraft.net. While you can download the game client freely, you must purchase the game from the company's website before you can play. However, you can still play for free using Minecraft Classic, but keep in mind that it offers fewer features than the paid version.
Minecraft offers a variety of worlds to explore, and the game gives you the freedom to create magnificent structures. Whether you prefer P2P games or classic versions, there is something for everyone in the world of Minecraft.
