Just The Facts

- It is like a combination of Rollercoaster Tycoon, Dungeon Keeper, Doom, and Infiminer.
- Be aware of monsters.
- That's a nice house you got there, It'd be a shame if any- BOOM!
Minecraft Beta is the only version of Minecraft that gets updated and is available to users on minecraft.net that have purchased the game. There are many more features in this version than Minecraft Classic, one of the most important being that fucking monsters come out at night to murder you. Of course, you might be temporarily safe if you can dig your way underground or build a fortress.
On Minecraft Beta, you keep an inventory of every item and material you collect. If you build a crafting table, you can craft various items like swords, shovels, pickaxes, and torches.
Minecraft Classic is the creative mode of Minecraft. In it, you have an unlimited amount of blocks in your inventory and are given a lot of creative freedom to build or mine whatever you'd like.
Users can play Minecraft Classic for free and can either play SIngle or Multiplayer modes. You can join or create many different servers on their website to play multiplayer in.
