The game has five following playing modes:

  • Survival mode: It is the most common and most played mode of the games. In this mode of the game, a player needs to collect natural resources for making certain blocks and items. Plates can craft different kinds of items in it such as swords, Axes and Armors. The game requires players to build a shelter at night.
  • Hardcore mode: All the settings are locked in the hardest mode. It is a variant of survival mode. If a player dies in this mode, he or she can not be revived. They immediately transferred into the spectator mode.

  • Creative mode: It is a kind of invincible mode where a character can not be damaged and there is no effect of hunger on them. They have full access to the inventory. They can build and remove any block at any given time.

  • Adventure mode: This mode is nothing more than the survival mode of the game with some restrictions. It enables players to experience user-crafted custom maps and adventures. It tells players about various scripted server commands designed for custom maps.

  • Spectator mode: In this mode, players can only fly through the game with various blocks. They can take part in the game. They can take a look at the game from a different perspective as they can teleport to other players.

Blocks:  Apart from snowballs, compasses, food and a few other items, the game is composed of blocks. Every single structure in Minecraft 1.17 is built out of blocks including elements like water. 

Axolotls, Glow Squids, copper and amethyst and many other items and mobs are included in Minecraft new version 1.17. The list of blocks in Minecraft is very huge. As per some gamers, there are more than three thousand blocks in the game. Air, Water, Concrete, Wool, Grass, Wood and Swords are some examples of the blocks. 

The number of blocks is getting bigger and bigger with every update. There are types of blocks in the game and these blocks can be divided into further categories according to their unique variations.  

For example, there are many different kinds of wood available in the game. Some of the most important are jungle, birch, acacia, oak, dark oak and spruce. These are further divided into logs, planks, stripped logs and many more. This division increases the number of blocks to a very high level. Moreover, all these blocks are available in different colour combinations which further increase the number of blocks.
