Hi people! You know what time it is - yep, game review time!

Minecraft is a basic survival game where you collect resourses to survive, stone, wood, etc. etc. Over time as you get more and more stuff, you can use them to craft other items such as pickaxes for mining, fences, doors, things llike that. Now I'm just going to give a quick first-night tutorial because at night monsters come out and try to kill you. So first when you first create a new world the game will dump you in the desert or a coastline or forest, and the first thing you want to worry about is time. Look at the sun. Then you need to find some wood, so find a tree and point your crosshair at the trunk, and hold down left mouse button. Your hand will lash out and punch the tree with a left hook, upper cut, jab, whatever. when it breaks a small block of wood will pop out. Pick it up by walking on it. It will go into your toolber at the bottom of the screen. Now you want about 10-12 blocks of trunk. When you have done that, press E on your keyboard to bring up your inventory. In the top right corner of the box is your crafting area. Put all of the tree trunk in a space and some wooden planks should appear in the result square. Take them all. Then put a wooden plank in all the crafting spaces to craft a workbench. That's really all you need to know, but I'll give you a crafting hint: making the shape of what you want to craft works. Then you need a shelter for the night, and some coal, but I'll leave that to you. Enjoy!
