Hello everyone, Owen from Mojang, again.

Mojang’s tips

Never dig in a straight line to descend. It is much more difficult to come to the surface afterward and you risk falling into the lava. Lava is too hot to be cool Never dig in a straight line to ascend. You may end up with a flow of sand, gravel, or even lava on your head! If you come to a fork and one of the roads leads to the surface, take that one. Always explore the safest alternative before you go adventuring in the depths.

Always watch your back in dark places. In case there is something scary behind you… BOOH! Make sure you bring torches. Put them down first, then collect the resources The tools are cool! Use them and improve them whenever you have the chance The evil one prowls the night. It is wiser to build yourself a shelter before it gets dark Remember to take food with you during your explorations. There is nothing worse than starving to death.

Iron armor offers good protection and is not too difficult to craft Never look the bugs in the eye – this tip comes to you from  4J Studios Do you have any other tips for our players? Which ones? Oh, and don’t forget to hang out with your family and friends between games of Minecraft 😉
