How To Play

     Watch your blue and red selectors.  They show where you will build or break blocks, respectively.  Crafting is very similar to Minecraft: put items into the crafting table to craft them. Right-click on the crafting table to open it and your inventory. The crafting templates are the same for the items we chose to put in.  Here are a few recipes to try.  Collect better matierals (wood->stone->iron->diamond) to create better tools.  Pickaxes are the only tools which can break stone.  Axes break wood tiles faster, and shovels break dirt, sand, and leaves very quickly.

w = wood, p = plank, x = sticks, s = stone, i = stone, d = diamond

[_ _] --> p x 4

I really like this game. It calls back to Minecraft's Alpha days beautifully, and it's incredibly relaxing. The graphics and music are charming, and the controls are simple. It could use a little work with it's fluidity. At the moment, it feels clunky, and the worlds are small, but it's great nonetheless. If you just polished the mechanics you already have, and added a few new ones like new blocks, bigger worlds, mobs and tools, you'd have a really nice game. I truly hope you sever this game's ties with Minecraft so that you can go on to release this as a fully original title, because it offers the Minecraft charm and the Terraria perspective without all the bloat and clutter with those two titles. I would pay money for a later version of this game. Bravo.

Funny you should say that. I made this game for a game jam which Notch suggested people make Minecraft demakes in 2010 way before minicraft was "taken". If you're curious, check out the source here: https://github.com/jleahey/Minicraft

I experienced the exact same problem as Fenyx. It is lacking quite a bit.
Even though it is a demake, it's a fairly bare one, and doesn't really add anything new that hasn't been done already. (there are already quite a few 2D minecraft clones)
Apart from that, it's a fairly clean cut game. (aside from the annoying looping music and "water walking" :P)

This game did come out July 2010. Before SMP and a lot of new Minecraft clones/features. I just started updating it again, feel free to come on over to the github and add something you think is missing!

Eh... It's not horrible, but as a platformer it is pretty bad, as an MC clone it is pretty bad due to the lack of different materials to build with (only cobble, dirt, and sand), and as far as finding materials, when I found diamonds a bug killed them somehow. :/
