Minecraft although it’s been around for over a decade, it’s still one of the best video games out there. In 2019, the game celebrated its 10and anniversary, and with that, Mojang released a web version of Minecraft Classic for anyone to play without having to spend any money. Yes, the game is free and there is no need to download any files to your computer. Now, we have to point out that Minecraft Classic has been around for a while for Windows, Mac, and Linux.

6]What are some of the limitations with Minecraft Classic?
Keep in mind that Minecraft Classic is based on old code from 2009, which means it’s nowhere near the level of today’s current Minecraft. The controls are clunky, there are only 32 blocks to play with, and numerous bugs are still rampant.
Also, there is only one game mode in the form of creative mode, so if you are the type of person who loves survival, well, Minecraft Classic on the web is not for you.
