THE AIM: There are two separate game modes: Creative and Survival. The first allows players to build huge structures using unlimited resources, while the second introduces enemies and monsters that players have to fend off. It also works as a multiplayer game.
KIDS WILL LEARN… Teamwork and cooperation, as well as geometry and maths (they have to build structures using cubes and pyramids). They’ll also learn new words as they match names with items in the inventory.
