Over summer break of 2011, I started creating this 2D Flash remake of Minecraft. I didn't ever think I could get this far, but with a ton of hard work, I've made great progress! Enjoy!

In case you just don't know, Minecraft is a popular 3D survival sandbox game:



Rated 3 / 5 stars


scroll wheel isn't recognized on most occasions, so scrolling through the inventory or plaving blocks is quite useless. also I recommend to have the inventory set up as an array of some sort and set borders for the selector (red circle around items.).

spawing point shouldn't be in water. you should add a routine, that ensures spawing on land.

Zanzlanz responds:

You can always use number keys, you know!
I'm not sure what you mean about the inventory array (it is a double nested array already?) and borders exist as double red lines... ??

Spawning will not only happen on land because otherwise it'll leave terrible "invisible chunks" but I'm working on fixing it.

Thank you for your review! :)


Rated 4 / 5 stars

Has its bugs, but not bad overall.

This is a pretty neat little flash! But it's not without it's bugs. It could look alot nicer too! Try using a nicer background instead of just blue!

Zanzlanz responds:

Yah I know. The bugs are there. I'm working on fixing them, and any specific reports would help. But sure, I'll change the background soon ;)

Background - and most of the graphics - are changed :D


Rated 0.5 / 5 stars

I'll maybe learn you something, but...

Never release a game with bugs. If you didn't know there was bugs, it's agreeable, but if you know there is bugs, don't release your game.

Zanzlanz responds:

The game automatically updates, so any bugs I do fix will be changed on here.
And a 1 is a really lame vote for any game.


Rated 3.5 / 5 stars


This is a very nice remake of Minecraft in 2D, except that there's already one similar to this called "Terraria". However, since that's not based upon Minecraft, I'll not push this further; I'll focus on this flash.

The graphics: They're not half bad, and it's good in my opinion; however the character's design could be improved on, but apart from that, it's not that bad, it's acceptable.

The music/sound: There was no music, alas, and the sound effects were mediocre, but I can understand since it gives me the space to play other music while I'm playing this game.

The gameplay: It's similar to Terraria's, and that's nice, but there's a problem that may or may not be huge: the game lags like hell. I guess this could be due to all the thousands of collisions being detected throughout the game, but it simply lags on my 2GHz computer. And that can't be good.

But it's good for an attempt in flash, I'll give you that. I like the save and load feature; it can very much be a "poor man's minecraft" -- and this is not an insult -- I've favorited this so that I can play it when I'm bored, but please, please try to fix the lag. It brings the overall points I'd give for this game down, and I can just bet the other reviewers whining about it when they play it, since I can't see the reviews when this is under judgement.

~~ Summary ~~

~~ Good points ~~
1) Managed to pull off the 2D version in flash
2) Okay sound effects
3) Save/load feature
4) Okay graphics

~~ Bad points ~~
1) Lags, lags a lot
2) No music

Zanzlanz responds:

Thank you for the response.
But there is music (starting at 3% of every day).
And there is pretty much no way to get past the lag right now. You can decrease the quality, and remove monsters to reduce lag if you didn't yet.

Well I did fix most of the lag. Easiest fix is reloading the page, if you do get lag.
