I've had a read through and it looks good to me. I've not really played the game but my son smiley - love it, and also watching other people playing it on YouBend where there are many people who can create truly outstanding things with it.
Obviously the title will be slightly tweaked before it gets edited.

Thanks for this, Gnomon smiley - biggrin I have heard of Minecraft, but haven't seen it in action, so this Entry is very educational smiley - ok

I like how you mention that the controls are different depending on the device, but then I wonder if there is too much detail later on, eg "'Move left through inventory' and 'Move right through inventory' buttons". The Entry is currently long (more than 6,000 words) so I wonder if you can tighten it up a bit smiley - ok

The Source Block section seems a bit too technical for an introduction... 'Complicated' indeed! There is perhaps a bit of repetition in relation to the different types of stone that could be brought together, too.

Excellent ending to the Entry - the different activities help me to visualise the plot of the game and how it leads to the Boss Monster smiley - ok

Thanks Sasha.

I'll try and trim it down. I was in two minds about that Source Block section. I can always refer the reader to the Minecraft Wiki site which has everything you ever needed to know about the subject.

I've addressed most of your points, Sasha, but am still working on trimming down the entry. I think 5,000 words should be enough but it is still at 5,900.

I've trimmed it down to under 5,000 words (4,998 last time I counted).

I hope I have now addressed all the issues you've pointed out.
