Salvatore: Hi, Stefano!
Stefano: Hi Salvatore! Can you use Minecraft?
S. :No, I can’t, sorry, what is it?
St.:So you don’t know one of the most influential games ever…? Minecraft is one of the most influential games ever, it’s an independent first-person sandbox video game originally created and developed by the Swedish programmer Markus Alexej Persson, “Notch”, from 2009 to 2011.
S.. In what does the game consist of?
St.: The game is based on placing or destroying “blocks”, that is, the cubes that make up the worlds in which the game is set, and in fabricated objects by interacting with them. Being a basic sandbox game, Minecraft does not have a precise goal to achieve by the player, despite the fact that there is a table of progress and goals.
S.:But , is it possible to finish the game?
St.: Yes, it is , by reaching the credits by killing the final boss, the Enderdrago, but once done you can continue to play without any substantial difference.
S.. What are the modes to play?
St.: There are three modes: the survival mode, the creative mode and the adventure mode.
In the survival mode there is the health bar. At the beginning of the game, both the health and hunger bar are full, but the player can lose health if damaged . When the player loses all hearts, he dies. At that moment the contents of the inventory that will remain scattered in the area where he died are lost. The player is reborn at the rebirth point, which by default is where you started playing in that world. The rebirth point can be changed by sleeping in a bed or using a rebirth anchor. You can recover hearts when the hunger bar is full or almost full. The hunger bar descends at different speeds depending on the player’s actions and fills up when the player eats .
In the creative mode, it removes survival mode obstacles and allows players to build and destroy easily, with no chance of dying, other than with a command or falling into the void. The creative mode allows players to fly and instantly destroy each block. If you have an unlimited amount to build, the removal of the health and hunger bar also makes the player completely invulnerable. In addition to creative inventory, from which the player can take blocks and items, the 41-slot inventory and difficulty levels that exist in survival mode remain.
S.: What about the adventure mode?
The adventure mode is similar to Survival, but the player’s ability to place and destroy blocks is limited. Specifically, the player is allowed to remove blocks only if he uses the appropriate tools. Similarly, it can place blocks only on the blocks specified in the tags of the block it wants to place. However, you can perform actions that do not involve changing the world, such as opening trunks or interacting with doors, buttons and levers..
S. It seems to be very funny! Come on, let’s play!
St: Ok Salvatore, let’s go!
