In the co-operative adventure game Minecraft: Portal Dash, players try to escape from Minecraft's fiery underworld, the Nether. You sprint through rugged landscapes full of magma and lava and have to prove yourself against dangerous monsters. Only if the players complete the portal in time and defeat its monstrous guardians can they survive the adventure together.
On their turn, players use their equipment to perform two actions. They collect valuable blocks with pickaxes, move around the game board with boots, and use swords and bows to defend themselves against monsters. As the game progresses, they collect increasingly powerful equipment and equip themselves for the arduous adventure. To win the game together, players must traverse the rugged landscapes of the Nether maps and defeat the boss monster that awaits them at the end. On the way, it is important to collect the missing portal stones, which requires a large number of blocks. Players lose if they are late in delivering them or if the supply runs out of blocks. If a player's life points drop to zero, the team has also lost.
