I heard a lot of voices about MineCraft so I decided to visit its site. I found two versions there, MineCraft Alpha and MineCraft Classic.

I tried to play MineCraft Classic, but I didn't really understand what the purpose/objective of the game is, and I haven't found very much information on the site.

Could you please explain it to me?

    +1 I was actually going to ask this exact question a couple days ago but I forgot to. – Davy8 Sep 27 '10 at 3:12

    It may help to know that Minecraft Classic is also referred to as "Creative Mode". – Will Eddins Nov 24 '10 at 19:00

None. Dig around, build around, enjoy the work that has gone into the map generator, make awesome stuff and share it on YouTube.

    I tend to think of it as multiplayer online legos! – Aeo Sep 27 '10 at 12:32

    @Aeo I thought that was Blockland – Eisler 485 Sep 19 '15 at 4:27

Minecraft Classic is the version where you simply build and let your imagination run wild. Minecraft Alpha is a more mature version where you mine, craft, build, and beat the crap out of zombies.


Minecraft is basically a huge sandbox of awesomeness, where you can do whatever you want!

Search for some youtube vids of things like "minecraft roller coaster" or "minecraft TNT." Those vids will give you an idea of what some people do with it.... Although I am not sure what features are available in classic, because I spend most of time in Alpha.
