Minecraft is a sandbox video game

Minecraft is a sandbox video game developed by Mojang Studios. 

The game was created by Markus "Notch" Persson in the Java programming language.

Minecraft is not a free game and one needs to purchase it before downloading it on your Android or iOS device.

For those players who just want to spend a bit extra time building, Minecraft Classic is free to download.

All players need to do is open their favourite web browser and go to Classic.Minecraft.net.

Minecraft: Java Edition is available at minecraft.net for $26.95 USD or comparable in other currencies.

There is no bloody or violent material in the game Minecraft. While players can kill non-threatening animals for food supplies, these displays are not promoted. When enemies and other species are destroyed, they simply vanish from the game world.
