What is Minecraft?

Minecraft is a video game and one that can be played across all platforms. Nintendo Switch, PlayStation, Xbox, PC consoles and even mobiles are all compatible with the game.

The game has two primary modes; Survival and Creative. In Survival Mode you must last find food and shelter before the night comes, during which a horde of zombies, skeletons, spiders and all-sorts of creatures begin to appear.

Creative Mode, however, is far chiller. With unlimited space and resources you can build to your heart's content, without worrying about nightfall.

It's a game that involves the player building their own world and foraging for materials from the environment around them to create tools, buildings and various objects. They can also alter the landscape of their world and shape it exactly the way they want it.

There are a number of editions to choose from, including Java, Bedrock, Education and China editions. As well as this, texture packs are available, which add different looks and elements to enhance the players' world.

With an option on most platforms for multiplayer style play, Minecraft players can game with their friends and work together to create their world. They must survive the Skeletons, Zombies and Creepers that are out to destroy them and the buildings they've worked so hard to construct, though.

If your dad is a gamer and would love the freedom to play Minecraft on the go, this is a perfect gift for Father's Day, but you'll need a Nintendo Switch to play it.
