Minecraft is an extremely special game, simply because it lets players create almost anything. Several technical blocks like command blocks, structure blocks, redstone blocks, etc., can automatically execute actions in the game. Many talented players have not only built complex contraptions and structures with these blocks but have also created entire minigames out of them.
A Redditor by the name of ‘u/McEMau5’ recently posted a video showcasing how they created a highly detailed tower defense strategy game inside Minecraft itself. They cleverly used several command blocks, structure blocks, etc., to build the minigame. The original poster also mentioned how they spent around 120 hours creating this project, which is surprisingly fast considering the details of the minigame.
There are several towers that players can place in order to stop the wave of hostile mobs from progressing further. Different towers have different capabilities, and can even be bought from a custom trading system that the creators curated themselves. The trading list of villagers was used to buy spawn eggs that generated the towers.
The main aim of the minigame is to protect an orb from several waves of enemies. The entire map is made up of pathways that lead to the orb, and areas where different towers can be placed. Players will need to strategically place defense towers in order to eliminate enemy waves. As of now, there are seven different quests made by the creator.
