OverviewOverview

Minecraft Dungeons is an action-adventure game that takes place in the Minecraft universe. You explore various dungeons to complete missions and collect new gear by exploring and finding treasure chests, or by defeating enemies. You can use this gear to defeat enemies who are stronger and challenge harder dungeons, which will then provide better gear for you.

Minecraft Dungeons also thrives as a cooperative experience for up to four players. Its variety in gear allows players to each have a unique purpose within the group. One player may be good at defeating enemies quickly, while another player can make the enemies weaker. When each person has a role within the group it encourages sharing gear so that the team may be the best it can be.

Rated PEGI 7+ for Fear and Violence.
 
Users Interact: The game enables players to interact and communicate with each other, so may expose players to language usually associated with older rated games.

Skill Rating

5+ year-olds usually have the required skill to enjoy this game. The familiar Minecraft world is a good way for younger children to step into this more action-oriented and linear adventure. There is depth here for them as they get more adept and ambitious and actually, not having to deal with an open world makes this work quite well for very younger players if they have an adult playing alongside.
