On Ubuntu, why the game are So speed ?

It would seem that building is impossible above, below, or to the side of a tunnel, for quite a distance...

Problem with placing walls, almost never works

it works on 32 bit?

only if your computer have 20year... any OS on 2020 run on x64

It's really good game, interesting way to involve Minecrafts motives to 2D world. IMO mobs are too quick and hard to kill them. Also food is not a easy deal, but the gamepad support on Linux is awesome. Thanks!

I'm playing the android version. How to I place walls? I put the floor down.

After we got the mac app stuff all sorted I got to play this. It's quite a nice game. I'm not sure if game world saving is a feature, but I don't see an option in mac, or the thing that does that is hanging during a crash at exit. Either way, this is a cool game. :)

Doesnt work :( i'm on mac

Do you have OSX 10.7 or higher?

(1 edit)

The issue is when you download the mac pack and unzip it it unzips to be the linux version, at least based on the folder naming.

I expected an .app file and saw a jre and a bash script. :)

Can't believe nobody told me before! lol, I'll fix it now, thank you :D

I like it! +1 from me

Thank you :D

I am glad that someone is creating a different game based on Minicraft! I have been enjoying this game and I am looking forward to future versions of it! Best of luck with the development!

Thank you, I have plans to add infinite worlds and more content ^_^

como se abre el juego


the apk file is to the android and jar file is to pc but need java support

Con la nueva version solo necesitas descomprimirlo y ya podras jugar :D


the game runs too fast for me. i have a 144hz monitor


soo coool

help cant open on mac

I just updated the mac version, should be fine now :D

hey, are you interested in starting a discord server for your game?

i would be more than happy to help!

my discord tag is yeetusthatfetus#6462

loving your game btw :)

Feel free to do it if you want to, let me know if you do to join there :D

I'm working in another game right now but, I have plans to add more things to tinicraft like, infinite worlds, animal, bed... close to the same content as minecraft ^^

Cant wait to see what's next, I love the game is there anyway to add some thing cad rom the automation mod that on minecraft, but anyways great work

will there be multiplayer if possible?

looks great!

It is possible, all depends if the game is profitable or not, maybe in the future :D

ok, thanks for the info!

I played this on Windows and I love it. It's like Terraria but then its own game. Give it 6/5. Also I would love it if you would look at my project in progress and maybe left a comment at https://linuxusr.itch.io/autoclickers-windows! Thank you and have a good day.

How do I start this on Linux? Also, may you please add the Meowmere? Then this would be awesome.

To play on linux you need Java to be installed

I have Java but it says that it is unsafe because it is not from a official repository? Is there like an executable that would start it? If not it's fine I'll just run it on Windows.


The jar file should open if you give it exec privileges, if not, you can always use the terminal, just write 'java -jar Tinicraft.jar' while on it's path

Works lovely. Thank you! I look forward to rating the game!

Hey what game engine are you using and are you interested in a collab?

I'm using llibgdx, I'm working in another project right now, if this game get a decent amount of players, I'll add more content to it

Really good so far, is there permadeath though? Let me know if I should "lets play" it!

When I died the first time to test it out, I couldnt get back into the world

Yes, it is permadeath, it's because the game is a bit short right now and I did it difficult to avoid players to finish it quickly. Thanks for playing 😁

To put a door you need to put the floor between two walls and put it over it

lol ok thanks alot ill definitely continue 

Good MIDI music, although I would like you to put the 8-bit music again and the overlay effect, It gave a more retro look.

The MIDI music makes the game install size really small, and is less repetitive than the 8-bit loops. The overlay effect is not compatible with the new screen management system, maybe I will add it again in the future, but not many people like it tho

mogang fist game

I think you tried to say Mojang... and no, this is not the first Mojang game lol

So you made this all in Java as well? That's pretty impressive, haven't played the game yet, but it looks as if you're keeping it close to the original game. Done a very good job just from what I can see in the screenshots!


Yes it is made in Java using libgdx, glad you like it :D


Best comment ever! :D

Ein offen "Minecraft" & "Minicraft"-Inspiriertes 2D-Survival. Schön fĂŒr nebenbei oder auf dem Handy (Android)

First Impression Video:

- schöner, simpler Pixelart-Stil im Gameboy-Look
- absolut selbsterklÀrende Features

- Permadeath nimmt Lust auf KreativitÀt
- Soundtrack macht gute Stimmung, dennoch sehr anstrengend

============== ENGLISH ==============

An openly admitted "Minecraft" & "Minicraft"-inspired 2D-Survival game. Nice for a coffee break or on mobile devices (Android).

- nice, simple Pixelart-Stile, looks like a GameBoy Color Game
- completely self-explanatory features

- permadeath kills interest in being creative
- Soundtrack lifts the mood but over a long time still tiring

Thank you for playing and the fair review, I really enjoyed watching you playing the game. Stay tuned for more content :D

I actually will, I find the game in general very nice. reminds me of what "Breath of the NES" could have become...

The new build disabled the ability to hit anything.


It is fixed now, thank you for letting me know :D

Good Game, I love pass time without wifi in this game but i have some complaint ;)

Can you upgrade the range of weapons ? The permadeath is not a problem for me but whenn i want to fight monsters they run on me and they are too far or too close to take damages.

And the music ... PLEASE make it less repetitive... 

PS: I'm French sorry for my English.

(1 edit)

The range of the weapons should not be a problem, you need to know how the enemy usually attacks and react to that, the combat is skill based rather than just press a button, you need to move to dodge and attack as part of the combat.

I'm working adding more things at the moment, also in more music, for now you can disable it and play your own music while playing.

Thank you for the comment :D

Hey its a tiny complaint but, do you mean Minecraft instead of Minicraft? I'm sure the original game isn't called Minicraft.

(1 edit)

Actually it is called minicraft.  Google it.

(1 edit)

I played it some more, and got further into it (Before I got lost in the dungeon and dying).  The one thing I noticed above any other is that the amount of resources you get from breaking blocks is very low and the costs to build anything are very high.

To build anything substantial you have to collect vast areas of resources.  

I understand that your trying to make it more difficult, but at these settings you have to collect about 40 iron blocks and 8 or 9 trees just to make 1 tool.

(Compared with Minecraft that's about 20 times the iron and about 200 times the wood needed.)

To make a square 5 x 5 "shelter" with 4 walls and a door takes over 200 trees!

(That's alot of trees for a tiny little shelter that doesn't even have a floor)

My math may be off a little bit, I'd be suprised if it wasn't, but it should be fairly close.

The game itself is fun to play, but that's alot of gathering.

Also, I really like the fact that it plays with a gamepad.  It makes it much  more fun.

Thank you for your comment, it is true that the game is not balanced yet, I'm still working on adding more and more things so I'm going to balance the drop and the recipes after adding more resources, different dungeons and more islands with different biomes. Feel free to post a suggestion on about recipes and drops here https://trello.com/b/n2pEWo2n/tinicraft . Thank you for playing :D

Well,  your doing great so far!  I look forward to future versions :)

That is a completely another game, in fact, is a modified version of Minicraft from notch.

Tinicraft is inspired on it, that means they have things in common but is a complete new game, so please, don't confuse the people.


Glad you like it! Stay tuned for more content soon :D

Show post...

there is no game file

The game file is Tinicraft.jar, you need java installed to be able to play the game

It won't launch on mac


Do you have Java installed?

I have java installed, and I have the same problem

You might try this : https://www.wikihow.com/Run-a-.Jar-Java-File#On_Mac_sub

I have Java on Mac. But, it has a different problem than what it shows on that website, leeadama.

Your giving no information at all.  What is the problem that you are having ?

Cute Game, I could see myself playing this.  

The permadeath thing is a little harsh.  Maybe make it an option ? 

I'll consider that, thank you for the feedback :D

It Looks Like Minicraft

Is based on it ^^

this looks like minecraft +

This is super cute. Looking forward to seeing future development on it.

Thank you for playing! I'm working on more enemies right now :D

Curious 2D Minecraft version. Inspired in Minicraft, but with better graphics.

Thank you for playing! :D

No problem, continue developing.
