Download Minecraft for Free 1.9 was first publicly announced on the forums TIGSource, where he first gained popularity, which led to the creation of a forum on Minecraft, wikis, and channel IRC.
Currently Minecraft for Free has two game modes – Survival and Building.
In the construction mode, the player is given access to a number of specified units, such as earth, stone, colored fabric, wood or metal, and can freely use any of these blocks for the construction of the game. In this game mode there is no need to gather resources or to defend against hostile creatures, and there is no threat of death (not, for example, drowning, or break if dropped from a height).
In survival mode, as well as in construction, the main task is to build and earn points, but it also includes a number of additional features. Such is the presence of hostile monsters, as well as the need to gather resources to build structures and materials for forging instruments of work and protection from the monsters.
In December 2009, Persson allowed those who previously bought the game play in a more recent (and potentially unstable) version of Minecraft, dubbed “Indev”. Similar to the system nightly builds, as in many other applications. At the moment Indev “evolved” in Infdev – with virtually endless card, and then in Alpha. At the moment, Alpha also has multiplayer, but it is crude and has a lot of bugs.
Additional game modes, such as siege Zombie (a variation on the theme of survival) and Capture the Flag, currently at the planning stage.
