Minecraft Classic Minecraft Classic (originally just Minecraft) was the initial version of Minecraft. It was renamed to Classic when the developer decided to keep it running alongside of the version of Minecraft that had added features such as enemies, crafting and others.

Minecraft Classic is a sandbox game in which the player can build whatever he wants. The whole world is made of cubes that can be removed or added at the players' whim. Cubes have different textures to make them look like materials such as dirt, stone, bricks, boards and cloth. There's no objectives in the game other than the player's imagination.

Players can run around freely in either single or multi player. The players are bound by physics but can jump to reach higher positions. Most blocks are not bound by physics however and will hover in mid air. The exeptions are yellow sand and water. Sand will always fall if cubes beneath it are free and water will aways fill holes beneath its surface.

The world in Minecraft is randomly generated. Each world is a fixed size island surrounded by water. Players can build in between an impenetrable layer of lava and the clouds.

Update May 2019: The official classic edition is now playable for free on browser!
