Minicraft, A “How To” Guide

December 20, 2011

Minicraft, like Minecraft, drops you onto an island with no directions whatsoever. Basically, you have to figure it all out on your own. In most cases, this requires you to die several times. Because of Minicraft’s recent release, I was not able to find any “how to” guides. You may find this learning experience part of the fun, but if you don’t, I have a guide for you. The ultimate goal of the game is to defeat the Sky Wizard (who lives in the sky). To do this, you must find the staircase which leads to the sky. It will be surrounded by a seemingly unbreakable metal. This must be broken with a pick ax to get to the staircase.

Here are the basic commands and tips to help you start Minicraft:

x is inventory, c is attack/select

Punch trees to get wood/apples. Wood is used to make tools. Apples give you heath. Select apples from inventory to hold. Eat to by pressing attack while equipped.

In your inventory is a workbench. It will appear once you have enough wood. Place it on the ground by selecting it and attacking with it. Use your inventory near it and it will let you  make tools.

Use your wood to make wooden tools. Use these wooden tools to mine through stone, use the stone to make stone tools.

Make a shovel to dig up sand. Turn sand into glass by using a furnace. Turn glass into lanterns by crafting them with slime balls (obtained from killing slimes). Use lanterns underground in order to see.

Find a descending staircase (inside mountains) and go down. Light up area by selecting lantern and using attack to throw it down. Mine a brownish spiky rock with stone tool. This gives you  iron. Make iron ore into iron with furnace. Make iron into anvil. Use anvil to make iron tools.

Go underground and search for gems. Mine gems, use to make gem tools. Use gem pick ax to break through metal surrounding the upwards staircase.

This is the basic things that you need to know in order to play Minicraft, I hope you found this useful. Here’s the link to the game, https://s3.amazonaws.com/ld48/ld22/index.html
