Though it doesn't have crafting, or indeed mining, Minecraft Dungeons does tie into the Minecraft lore, setting you up against the Arch-Illager to destroy the Orb of Dominance and become the hero of the Overworld. It also features four-player co-op and, as of November last year, cross-platform play for the PC, Switch, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4 versions.

Rachael Watts gave it a solid 75 in her review. "Minecraft Dungeons is the perfect introduction to dungeon crawlers for beginners and a breezy adventure for veterans", she wrote. "It doesn't have anything in particular that makes it stand out, but it's a fun, streamlined take on the dungeon crawl genre."
