    Minecraft is beloved because it’s a celebration of creativity. CastleMiner Z is the antithesis of Minecraft: it’s a depressing, cynical cash-grab almost wholly designed to hijack gamers’ excitement for Mojang. For 69p, its survival horror elements are a nonsense novelty. But at the price demanded on PC, we should be throwing it out to the creepers.

    I originally bought this game on XBL, and for a dollar, it was worth it. But ten dollars... That's stretching it. The game is always laggy and lacks basic options in the settings. It even expects you to have a controller to play. Multiplayer is impossible to play without a server, (not a terrible thing) which isn't as easy to set up as a game on XBL. Don't buy this game on PC unless there is a big sale.
    Summary: This Minecraft clone may look good at first, but has terrible settings options and lag. It's just better to buy Minecraft and add texture packs and mod it. You can only have around two hours of fun until you get bored. I don't recommend it on PC.

    The only artistic design choice this game has is not having any. A complete rip-off of Minecraft that dares to charge you money to play it.

    Do not buy it or you may consider kicking the stool.

    I can't even believe this made it onto Steam. Its just a Minecraft clone with guns, go play the real thing. On PC you can mod Minecraft and add guns and shaders just like this game did and get a much more stable, polished, and more fun experience.

    The mere existence of this game is absolutely ridiculous, I can't believe the devs are so low as to ride on the success of Minecraft to make a profit.
