Customize plot in slice-of-life tale
In Minecraft: Story Mode, players are swept into the sprawling, charming world of Minecraft — but this time with a mission. That might sound odd to longtime fans of the game. Minecraft is known for being a completely open world — no plotline is sort of its appeal. But somehow, Minecraft made it work. The game provides a fun, slice-of-life tale that doesn’t overwrite stories players might have imagined. You have lots of options for plot customization.
Minecraft: Story Mode should appeal to fans of the main game, although some cartoonish violence and jokes have earned a 10+ rating on Google’s Play Marketplace. It’s designed to run best on newer devices, such as the iPhone 5 or later. Also of note: The first episode is out now, and developers will release more over time — so be prepared to sink additional money into the title if you get hooked. It’s $5, for iOS and Android devices.
