About Minecraft

Minecraft world is virtually infinite. You need to pick up building blocks and use them to make anything you want to. For example, you can create a house, a school, or a whole city with multiple houses. You just need to be creative enough. Also, you can fight zombies and other creatures with your friends. There are 4 Game Modes in Minecraft:

Creative mode

In creative mode, you have access to all the resources that are required to build. There is no health bar or hunger bar in this mode. Also, you can kill other creatures, but they can’t hurt you. This mode is all about creating things.

Survival Mode

In Survival Mode, you don’t have access to all the resources, you need to find and pick up building blocks/items and craft them. You have a health bar, hunger bar, and creatures that will also attack you and hurt you. This mode is all about surviving and is the hardest mode in Minecraft.
