An old glitch in Classic allowed players to raise the height of a fluid block by placing sand (or gravel) over it. The sand block would stay suspended in mid-air until it was broken. When broken, a fluid block corresponding to the type below the gravel or Sand would appear where the block was. The suspended fluid block would remain immobile until a block was placed next to it, causing a flood. This bug has since been fixed, but has been reported that it has happened before.

An interesting and often humorous quirk in Classic is that whenever the player moves, they will swing their arms wildly around.

Website availability

The latest version of the Classic Creative game mode had been still playable for free on Minecraft`s website. It was no longer updated and only kept for historical purposes. According to Notch This page has been protected from editing to prevent vandalism. Please discuss changes on the talk page.

On Aug. 8, 2012, the link on the website to Classic was removed, but re-added after many complaints. On Jul. 1, 2013, because of the new launcher being able to play Classic, the link to Classic was removed again, though the page remained playable. The Classic game at that page went unsupported for some time, meanwhile several major browsers increased their default Java security to the point where the game became essentially unplayable, until at some point between Sep. 10 and 12 2015, the page containing Classic was itself removed entirely. Classic is now available solely to play via the Minecraft launcher Minecraft launcher Current version 2.0.934 Platforms The Minecraft launcher is the login and downloader front-end to the stand-alone client. It is responsible for downloading the main Java packages, including minecraft.jar, which holds the code and minecraft if Alpha versions are enabled. Classic, Infdev, and a few Pre-Classic versions (but not Indev) are included under "Alpha." The version numbers between 0.0.9a and c0.30_01c are Classic.





    Unlike the Minecraft Alpha, Beta, and Minecraft 1.0 versions of Minecraft, players could not craft items or inflict damage in Classic.

    Much like Creative Mode, there was an infinite amount of blocks the player can use at their disposal, although, the player could only place the old textured cobblestone. However, unlike Creative Mode, Minecraft Classic does not let the player fly (without the use of mods or plug-ins).


    Minecraft Classic was the original version of Minecraft. It was originally given away for free. However, it is now bundled with the release edition, as part of the Minecraft Launcher.

    Minecraft Classic did not include any mobs⃂₠except the players themselves (Minecraft Classic does support Multiplayer as well as Singleplayer).

    In Minecraft Classic, the player is limited on how far they can explore since the worlds were limited in size.

    Like all of the other editions of Minecraft, Classic is a sandbox game. This means that there are no objectives and no unlocks⃢₀ₔthe player is free to do what they like.

    As with most early Minecraft editions, worlds were generated randomly and had limited space.

    Unlike the Alpha and Beta editions of Minecraft, sponges had the ability to absorb water in Classic.

    Single Player

    Singleplayer is a mode within Minecraft Classic that, once selected, places the player in a world surrounded by fog. In this world, the player can use the infinite amount of materials available to them to create whatever they please.


    Guests to the Minecraft website can play Minecraft Classic⃂₠for free. However, the links to access it are no longer on the front page which makes anyone without the link unable to play it.

    Guests cannot save their levels like Premium users can. Premium users can save their levels in the browser, but non-premium members must save any levels as a save file.


    Multiplayer within Minecraft Classic allows for several players to connect via a server. Servers in Minecraft Classic were operated in a much similar fashion to that of Servers for Minecraft Alpha, Beta, and Release.

    As with current Minecraft servers, Minecraft Classic servers were compatible with mods and plug-ins.

    Worlds in Minecraft Classic Multiplayer were an identical size to that of worlds in Minecraft Classic Singleplayer.
