Undeniably, Minecraft is one of the most successful games of the past few years and its unique business model has set a new standard for independent titles. Nevertheless, there are still many people who haven’t actually played it and fortunately for them, there is a free (albeit quite outdated) alternative called Minecraft Classic. Although it’s true that this version is no longer being developed, it’s completely free to play. Classic shares some similarities with the Creative mode as it allows players to build and destruct everything around them. Additionally, there are no creatures, the many environmental hazards won’t damage the player and you have unlimited amount of blocks to do whatever you please with them.
It should be noted that the latest version is the 0.30 and was released in November 10, 2009, so don’t expect a lot of mind-blowing features. What you can expect is a free version of one of the best independent games ever made. So if you want to experience Minecraft before you actually buy a copy or if you want to play something familiar for a few minutes you should definitely try it.
For those of you who are interested in trying this version of the game, go to this website where the game can be played directly from a browser.
