Minicraft for Mac
Minicraft is a small but entertaining Mac game designed to be a 2D clone of the popular Minecraft game. The game has been developed on the Java platform, so make sure to install the Java runtime on your Mac before trying to launch the JAR file.
Simple but amusing game that allows you to experience the Minecraft gameplay in 2D
Finding your way around the Minicraft game is quite intuitive: you can start by creating a new map, and then use various controls to modify your environment or to move your character around.
Note that your Minicraft character can climb trees, which makes it a lot easier to get around. Minicraft comes with simple controls: you can use the WASD keys to move around, the Space key to jump, Shift helps you walk, while the mouse buttons can be used to build or break blocks.
In addition, you have the option to easily change your perspective by zooming in and out, you can toggle the sound effects, view your inventory, toss the currently selected item, and more.
Have fun creating your own Minecraft styled 2D environment
Within the Minicraft game you can collect different types of materials, and then you can employ different tools to deal with them. Minicraft allows you to work with wood, plank, sticks, stone, and diamond.
Once you got all figured out, you can explore your map, build a crafting table, mine for minerals, grow trees, dig up underwater caves, build castles, and so on.
To conclude, if you are a fan of the Minecraft game, Minicraft provides the same type of experience, except it is in 2D. Keep in mind that the game can preserve your map between sessions: when you start the game, simple press the load button instead of creating a new map.
