Minecraft Dungeons is a pretty big twist on the block world of Minecraft. By using the adventure formula and melding it with action-RPG elements, gamers are getting a wildly different experience. Rather than crafting all of your gear, most of it will be found via grinding mobs and exploration. All the iconic locales and biomes from default Minecraft will feature in the game too. Fans of the franchise will find plenty to have fun with.
You might be wondering if this kind of game is for you. If you’re an ARPG fan, it could be, it’s just not as deep as Path of Exile or Diablo. There are multiple zones to explore, and plenty of mobs to kill, so this might be your ticket into the world of Minecraft.
Here are the full level breakdowns. Each zone has its own mob pool and loot table. And you can explore through these zones pretty thoroughly. Each one has dungeons of some kind in it, all attached to the theme of the area. Fiery Forge can have Magma Cubes and other fiery enemies, and a lot of hot biomes too, all with a small mountain of loot.
- Creeper Woods
- Redstone Mines
- Cacti Canyon
- Soggy Swamp
- Pumpkin Pastures
- Fiery Forge
- Desert Temple
- Highblock Halls
- Obsidian Pinnacle
The amount of time it takes to actually beat the game will vary from player to player. Your skill will vary from person to person, so it’s hard to say exactly how long it will take you to beat Minecraft Dungeons. If you really want to rush through it, you could probably beat it in a single session. Expect a more complete playthrough to take several days. So take this into account when deciding if you want to buy this game.
The game overall has a pretty consistent flow. Some of these levels are tougher than others. There are also multiple difficulties to play through, each with their own requirements for unlocking them. In most cases, you have to beat the game on a lower difficulty first. To get to Apocalypse difficulty you could expect to spend 20 hours or more with the game.
For starters, you begin your journey on Normal, working your way through various adventures and building better gear along the way. You can also grind through any of the areas for better loot. Thanks to procedural generation, you can get some nice randomized stuff too.
