Our examiner, Jonah Monaghan, first checked Minecraft Dungeons 2 years ago. It was re-examined by Andy Robertson and updated 8 days ago.
It offers a cooperative experience for up to four players. The variety in gear enables 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.
As you progress you advance your party. The gear you collect along the way can be used to defeat enemies who are stronger and take on the more challenging dungeons. This in turn rewards you with even better equipment.
The result is a game that focuses on brawling button-mashing combat but with an eye on strategy and cooperation. In a family, it's a great game to play together as you work through the hoards of enemies and steal their treasure.
You can play this game in the following styles:
7+ year-olds usually have the required skill to enjoy this game. Still, it’s important for parents and guardians to ensure they understand in-game purchases and have spending limits set-up. 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.
