Minecraft is one of my favorite games. It is uber-ownage and is much better than alot of the games on the market. It has funny quotes at the title menu like Jason Jason Jason! or funk soul Brother etc. If you are lookin for a game where you can kill everything and make a blacksmith melt in lava get Minecraft. One of the best parts of the game is it is a sandbox where you can do whatever you want whenever you want as long as you have the required materials. To make a pickaxe you just use wood, stone, iron, gold, diamond 3 on the top and on the reamining two in the middle place sticks which are made by putting two planks on top of each other. You will need a crafting bench to make a 9 x 9 recipe which a pickaxe is. To make a crafting bench place 4 plank in a square in the crafting square. To make planks place Wood in the crafting square. To get wood punch trees until they break do not let go of the right mouse button.
Cobblestone is obtained by breaking stone with a pickaxe. Stone pickaxes are made from cobblestone not stone in case you were wondering. Iron is obtained by mining iron ore and smelting it. To smelt you need to make a furnace. To make a Furnace you need to place 8 cobblestone in the crafting box 9 x 9 just so you know just leave one empty space in the middle. To smelt you need to place the furnace and right click on it then place the object that you want to smelt on top and place coal/ charcoal/ wood/ planks/ sticks. To make charcoal place raw wood in the top spot and planks beneath. If you want diamonds........... Look really deep it will be very hard to obtain also only use iron pickaxe on it. If you want to find the rarest thing in my opinion in the game Wolves you will need to kill alot of skeletons and keep the bones. Go searching and if you find some right click on them with the bones until hearts pop above their head.
