I am ashamed to say it, but creepers still scare the life out of me when I play minecraft.
I can’t help it, but the fact that they blow up, make a hissing noise and chase me is enough to have me wanting to hide!
It makes the game exciting but I am still terrified of them. Even playing the sound when I wasn’t playing the game puts the fear in me!
I will just have to be brave… and actually fight one one day!
So does it scare you too?
I love minecraft, yet I am terrible at it, so as long as you don’t do the mistakes I often do, you will be fine.
So here is my tips on how to play this wonderful game as a noob.
- Don’t squeal like a girl and panic
I squeal; I sqeak; I panic; I run into walls. Panic makes you do silly things, and giving your other half an ear ache is not going to help when you rely on them to tell you what that green thing is running towards you, or remind you not to look into the purple eyes. If you are of a jumpy nature, try to make sure you always have a good and easy get out plan and not a narrow ledge that you make you fall further into a pit of darkness or off a cliff to your death.
- Dont get stuck out of stupidity
After opening a new world I could not find coal. While this may not seem a big deal, it is as you can make torches. That made it difficult, but I got stuck in a hill when the sun went down as I dug into a hill kept digging with no light and now can not get out. I have since had to start a new account.So stuck without torches? Quickly make a door then you can see something so you know where the exit is and when to get out! With only the need of wood to make it as well, it is very easy to make, especially as a noob!
- Don’t use wooden picks
It is great when you start using a pick, and the wooden ones are great for starting out with nothing, but as soon as you have used the wooden pick to get some cobblestone, make cobblestone picks. If you stick with a wooden one and find that little bit of coal in the area, you won’t get the coal that you vitally need, but a hole where it once was! The same is for iron, gold and diamond; you need to right pick to mine then, whether iron, gold or diamond.
- Remember to sleep
What I didn’t realise was that by sleeping you save your location, so a house with a bed and emergency supply of items in a chest is a great way to not go back to square one. It also means you get to miss the scary evenings with the scary monsters that make terrifying noises!
- When you see a creeper, green walking thing, RUN as they explode!
The best advice I can give is to run from these scary things, as they explode and leave a lovely crater when they explode in the morning sun! Try not to take them on or you’ll end up back with nothing again, or scream and give the bf a headache…
- Have fun!
Minecraft is a great game, where you can explore towns, caves dungeons and build great buildings, homes and memories. Enjoy it and when your not enjoying it any more, try a new world or play with someone else!
I hope you have enjoyed my Minecraft how to play as noob. Hopefully I will have more for you soon!
