    Do yourself a favor and ignore people saying its a minecraft rip off. The game was not intended to be a rip off of anything and is in fact very original aside from the voxel based graphics tons of people are using in games these days.

    I can assure you that anyone who rated this game less then 8 just actually did not understand the objective of the game or even realize it. Its not to
    just survive like other crappy games you know. Your goal here is to defeat the undead dragon in hell. You can find hell by just digging straight down a long ways of course but thats not where you find your enemy. You must travel a long ways in 1 direction. along the way you must defeat the forest dragon then the landscape will slowly change to sand and you defeat the sand dragon. then it changes to ice and you defeat the ice dragon and finally there is no more surface there is just hell and you can't get out. just keep going and eventually you find the undead dragon. Defeat that and you have beaten the game. Good luck cause your gonna need the best weapons you can get in your arsenal. Yeah you mine materials like in minecraft but thats where the game ends in similarity. The game is ACTUALLY difficult. in hell hoards of zombies will come at you. Expect to die a lot. You will get your money worth of play time from this game.

    Like i said before. ignore these crazies that just say its a bad minecraft. They probably played the game like it was minecraft and failed to realize the true way its intended to be played.

    Mine > make weapons > kill the dragons
    Good luck because its very difficult and a very long journey to reach the undead dragon. you may want to do it with a friend because you WILL die trying to reach the end and you can spawn on friends in normal mode. like i said before you will get your money's worth here. more then AAA titles that sell for 59.99 thats for sure.

    This game is really fun with friends. With its new update the game now looks graphically impressive on higher end rigs. This game isn't a minecraft rip-off and has lots of potential. The community is coming back to this game and it will add more content in the future.

    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.
