Minecraft Classic was the original version of Minecraft. It is drastically different from the current versions. Minecraft Classic does not include any mobs, except the player. The sole purpose of Minecraft Classic is being a sandbox game, where players are allowed to build as they please. Minecraft Classic contains both a Single player and a Multiplayer setting.
Singleplayer mode starts the player in a map surrounded in fog. They can freely build without any other players. Guests to the Minecraft site can play Minecraft Classic, but at a cost. Guests cannot save their levels like registered users can. Premium users can save their levels in the browser, non-premium members must save any levels as a save file. Maps are generated randomly and are very limited in space.Along with that sponges also soak up water
Multiplayer Minecraft Classic is very similar to Multiplayer Minecraft in the fact that players must join a server and can interact with each other. Like current Minecraft servers, Classic servers are compatible with mods and plugins. The only downside to multiplayer Classic is the fact that griefing is much easier.
Blocks available in Minecraft Classic include:
- Stone Slabs (The X-Box 360 version includes different slabs).
- Sand (Note that sand is still affected by gravity.)
- Wool (Red, orange, yellow, lime, green, seafoam, turquoise, blue, indigo, purple/violet, light purple, pink, fuchsia, black, gray, and white)
- TNT (inactive)
- The walking animation for Minecraft Classic shows the Player running forward, flailing their arms in an odd fashion at their sides (In comparison, it looks similar to flapping your arms). This animation, however, can only be seen in multiplayer Classic.
